I’m Tom Dwyer,

Roughly sixteen percent of all Americans now live in poverty, but in Richmond County, Georgia, the poverty rate is forty one  percent, and the Marshal’s Office handles twenty evictions every day.

Even in this bleak environment the recent eviction of an Augusta grocery business by SunTrust Bank held an even more cruel and unusual twist.    Hundreds of residents filled the store’s parking lot hoping to get some of the baby food, canned goods, noodles and other non-perishables.

They went home hungry because SunTrust, who had been gifted with almost five billion dollars of our money from TARP, put the goods into dumpsters headed for a landfill while hungry families watched in disbelief.

Evictions may be necessary, but this food had no value to the bank.  It actually cost them money to throw it away.  The act was callous and unnecessary.

But as Banksters and their government enablers replace democracy with “austerity”, atrocities like this will become common place.
