- some guy killing 4 cops when they serve him an eviction notice because his mortgage jacked the interest up where he couldn’t pay
- some guy killing 5 people because he doesn’t have a paycheck any more because he couldn’t pay his student loans
- some gal who furnished her house on credit and thanks to usurious interest rates it ballooned to the point she couldn’t pay any more and the bill collectors just kept calling

Class war ain’t pretty. We stopped it at the turn of the 20th century by giving union rights and the 8 hour day. Now the right wing thinks unions smell funny and the 8 hour day is for suckers. Meanwhile our national income is monopolized by fewer and fewer.
