ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) –  Protesters are pitching tents and bracing for a showdown outside the home of a retired police detective under threat of eviction.

The development sets up a possible clash between her co-workers and other law enforcement officers who carry out evictions.

Occupy Our Homes ATL spokesman Tim Franzen says a Thursday court hearing involving retired Atlanta police Det. Jaqueline Barber’s home in Fayetteville did not go her way. Franzen said a judge at the bankruptcy hearing effectively lifted a stay, meaning the eviction could happen any day.

Franzen said more than 30 people were camped out in the yard on Friday.

Several financial institutions are involved in the foreclosure. A U.S. Bank spokeswoman referred questions to GMAC ResCap, where a representative didn’t immediately return a phone call for comment.
