For you readers who are CAI members (and I know you’re there by your IP addresses!) here’s a fantastic idea for you! Debtors’ prisons!
A few local courts here and there have revived the illegal practice of throwing debtors in jail until their debts are paid. Since Homeowners Associations are de facto governments they certainly could take people who are late on their dues payments, fines or special assessments and toss them in jail. Heck, HOAs don’t have to abide by the Constitution so a debtor’s prison would be perfect! With the help of some local judges who are in the pockets of the CAI it would be a breeze!
If some miscreant homeowner is a problem, don’t just sue them, lien them, and foreclose on their home! If they’ve planted an illegal shrub, or left the garage door open beyond the 10 minute time limit, don’t harass them or pass out tickets. Throw the bums in jail!
It’s legal! If all the other ‘stuff’ you do to homeowners is legal, then this surely is.
Show some guts. Do it!
