Occupy Atlanta members join police in bid to save detective's home

Nearly a year after Occupy Atlanta members clashed with police in riot gear in an Atlanta park, they're now drawing support from officers in their efforts to help a longtime detective avoid losing her home to foreclosure.

Demonstrators say they'll join active and retired Atlanta police officers Monday at the Fayetteville home of retired Atlanta police Detective Jaqueline Barber. Group members say Barber was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of cancer, after buying the home about 20 miles south of Atlanta. She now faces eviction.

Tim Franzen, one of the leaders of the group now called Occupy Our Homes ATL, says police officers are among the 99 percent of people they aim to help.

Representatives of U.S. Bank, which is involved in the foreclosure proceedings, couldn't immediately be reached.
