Don Bain can keep an eye on his detached shop (reflected in sliding door) from his back porch in Spokane Valley, Wash., where he says squatters have moved into the shop and refuse to leave. He was surprised when he was told by police that the squatters had a right to be in the garage -- and that they could even break a window to get back in, if he padlocked the doors. Story here.

Question: What do you think of this situation?
