Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Squatters Steal Soldier’s Home, Then His Brothers In Uniform Show Up To Serve Up Justice

While stationed in Hawaii for two years, a couple of lowlife squatters broke into his New Port Richery, Florida home and started living in it. When he finally came back to Florida after working hard for the military, Army Spc. Michael Sharkey was eager to move back to his home with his wife.

But when he got off the plane in Florida, he discovered that squatters had taken over his property. And when he told them the home belonged to him, they flat-out refuse to leave.

Because he had been on duty for the last two years, Sharkey and his wife have not lived in Florida. That’s why they were shocked to discover the two ex-cons who had broken in and claimed it as their own…

When he confronted the criminals about their unlawful stay at his home, they told him that they were not leaving. And that they had changed the locks and everything.

“I work hard, long hours, and these people never had permission to live in my home,” the outraged serviceman told the station WFLA. “They should be thrown out.”

Sharkey called the authorities. And they told the veteran that there was nothing they could do to help him. He was up creek without a paddle, and the government he had worked for during the last two years left him high and dry. He needed help from someone, but no one seemed willing to help the veteran.

“They are criminals,” said Sharkey to WFLA. “I am serving my country, and they have more rights to my home than I do.”

Police refused to both the squatting couple, Julio Ortiz and Fatima Cardosa. They had established residency, so Sharkey would need to spend thousands to take them to civil court.

Ortiz claimed he had a verbal agreement with Sharkey’s friend who was supposedly overseeing the home while his friend was of serving the country. Ortiz said he was allowed to live there for free if he made all house repairs.

Sharkey and his say that Ortiz is lying. But Ortiz has the law behind him…

“The people that are in this house cannot produce any documentation, lease, agreement, anything that they belong in that house,” said Sharkey.

Word got out that Sharkey was being victimized. That’s when a group of military veteran bikers took swift action. Since the police did not help Sharkey when he needed them, this renegade biker gang figured they give it a shot.

The biker gang visited Ortiz and Cardosa to “peacefully make the squatters uncomfortable.”

Sharkey and his wife were so grateful to the group of military veteran bikers. They had saved the day and stepped up to the plate, when the government and the police force had let Sharkey down.

      Who cares!!!!!!!!!! Get a life. If this is all you have to do then find something to do to help situations like this with squatters in homes that military families leave vacant so they can protect your rights to be an ass hole. Really is this the best you can do???????????? I guess you think you are the GOD of grammar and spelling, I guess this makes you feel real important.

    Breaking in to a home that is not yours is called breaking and entering. At a minimum after that is criminal trespass. Squatters MUST be forcibly removed by law enforcement. This is a criminal matter, not a civil matter!

      It’s the doctrine of adverse possession that needs to be changed. If the house was not occupied the squatters could claim it was abandoned and take it over. The law sucks, but it has its roots in the English Common Law so it’s not going away soon.

    The laws regarding squatters really need to be changed to protect the homeowners. These situations are absurd!

    This is more common than you think in FL. When I lived in Melbourne, a neighbor’s developmentally limited adult son had made friends (I’m sure he was scammed) with a homeless person. He made the mistake of letting the homeless person stay overnight one time.

    The homeless person then refused to leave so they called the police. When the police arrived the homeless person began screaming out loud that he had “Squatters Rights” and that the homeowner now had to follow “Tenant’s Rights Laws” involving eviction notification and time frames. That would have been a minimum of 30 to 90 days and require a court ordered eviction.

    The ONLY thing that saved the owner was that since his son was developmentally disabled and the parents were his legal custodians with power of attorney. In short the son had no authority to grant permission for the homeless person to enter or stay so the police gave the homeless person the choice of leaving or getting arrested for trespass.

    If not for the sons legally documented disability, that family would have been stuck with that homeless person until a court ordered eviction. Be warned! This can potentially happen to anyone, anywhere. By law in most every State once you invite someone into your home to stay overnight you have effectively granted them residence (no lease required) and they now have the law on their side.

    If you or anyone you know ever encounters this situation be advised that the WORST thing you can do is call the authorities because that puts the situation on record including the claim of “squatters rights”. Better to find a way to forcibly remove them on your own. Maybe wait until they leave to go out. Then break in and change the locks back while taking all their belongings and having a friend haul them away while you remain. Then change all the locks back to your original key.

    If you live in a “Castle Doctrine” State like FL, when they return and attempt to force their way back in you can shoot them dead.

    Obviously if you know you are going to be gone for an extended period of time you should invest in a monitored home security system. Had the person in this article had such a system then squatters would not have been possible as they would have been arrested for home invasion. Barring that, this is the type situation you must handle yourself initially without involving law enforcement.

    hes a liberal just like the squatters,they do nothing all day but complain,even about spelling and grammer

    This is old news and probably not even true. I read this same article 2-3 years ago. It’s a sad story and tugs at the heart strings but it’s pure unadulterated bullshit.
