This power grab by local code enforcement officers is not unique to the California desert, it’s happening everywhere. The assertion by local authorities that they own your property and therefore totally control you is unconstitutional. My land was not bought from the county, my land is totally paid for, I owe no one. I do not partake of local government assistance in any form, shape or manner, you do not own me.
I had a personal issue with local bldg codes when they tried to make it, against South Carolina law, an issue for me to set up a travel trailer. My case was different than those in California, I wanted to tie into the grid.
Apparently living off the grid, off the land and without government assistance is now a crime that can land you in jail and cause you to lose your home.
Government officials across the country are forming so called “nuisance abatement teams” to intimidate people into giving up their land or conforming to the governments demands and hooking back into the grid. Counties across the country are actually jailing people for living the way they want to live.
I was alerted to this video by a reader and was troubled and sickened by what the poor people in the California Desert are being forced to deal with. From being threatened with jail time if they don’t hook back into the grid to being thrown in jail because the county didn’t like the look of their homes, the people in the deserts of Los Angeles County are being terrorized by their government.
