Elizabeth McGriff had lived in her home for sixteen years.
Like millions of Americans, she fell on hard times.
But MidFirst Bank wasn't trying to hear it.
So they had her evicted.
"It wasn't necessary that they did this and people could still stay in their homes. I was hoping and trusting God that it wouldn't come. That they would make a deal or make some situation where I could get my home back." Said McGriff.
"For them it's just about the profi," McGriff said.
"They have to make a profit. It's just an injustice that happened and nobody does anything."
"They don't care. They don't care what's happening in the community. They don't care what happens to the people."
Police arrested two protesters.
Michael Connelly, 76-years old, was charged with trespassing, and 27-year old David Krause was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and obstruction of governmental administration, commonly referred to as "O.G.A."
David Krause was taken to the hospital for injuries sustained when he was tackled and body slammed by a Rochester Police officer. (SEE VIDEO BELOW)
