This is crony capitalism among incompetent morons at its worst.

As an side, the article got a few points wrong – the article says that the city isn’t going after the former owner for taxes. That’s because they can’t. Real estate taxes are ‘in rem’ which in Latin means ‘against or about a thing’ – meaning that real estate taxes only go against the real estate, not against the individual. The article was confusing the city fines against the previous owner – which do have personal liability – and didn’t differentiate between the two very well.
