A 53-year-old Ohio man facing foreclosure has sealed himself inside his home, refusing to leave until banks end foreclosures and evictions. According to The Toledo Blade:

The homeowner, Keith Sadler, and several supporters from the TFDL have set up a video feed and a Twitter feed to get their message out. The Sentinel-Tribune reports that Sadler has publicly fought foreclosure in the past:

The case is the latest in a string of frustrated homeowners going to extreme measures when they lose their home to the bank. In February, another Ohio man bulldozed his house before turning the property over, and several homeowners from around the country are accused of setting fire to their homes in the face of foreclosure.

Is Sadler’s move crazy? Or has he simply come up with an effective way to bring greater attention and sympathy to struggling homeowners?
