Alabama City Suing Couple to Get Back On The Grid, Threatens Arrest

As a military veteran, he found it really odd that he thought he was defending the American way only to come back home and be scolded by bureaucrats to hook-up! As you might imagine, Truitt doesn’t want to yield so easily and says they’d rather be arrested than leave their land.

There are lots and lots of us that “thought” the same thing because we had been subjected to a lifetime of authoritarian indoctrination. — jtl, 419

Huntsville, Alabama says couple can’t live “off the grid,” condemned their property and threatens arrest for trespassing

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits“I just don’t see how we’re hurting anyone by being here,” said Tyler Truitt when asked about having to defend his off-grid lifestyle to city hall.

As a military veteran, he found it really odd that he thought he was defending the American way only to Combat Shooter's Handbookcome back home and be scolded by bureaucrats to hook-up! As you might imagine, Truitt doesn’t want to yield so easily and says they’d rather be arrested than leave their land. Who would want to leave their paid-for property and off-grid installations because of city utilities? It might eventually come down to arrest as the city is completely dismissing their property rights and adamantly disapproving their off-grid ways.

The city officials said that’s simply not allowed and filed a lawsuit. They are claiming care for the couple’s safety – however, the couple are not without utility comforts, but have found a way to provide for themselves without the city services.
But the city frowns on their 100 percent, self-sustaining property, and homemade utilities such as solar panels and rainwater collection among other assets. They struck a low-blow by calling the couple’s house a trailer and saying that trailers aren’t allowed within city limits.

Truitt says the city has condemned the house, claiming safety violations for no hook-up, and threatened arrest for trespassing if they come back on their own property.

Truitt said:

You have to stand up for what you believe in. They could come out here today if they wanted to and take us to jail for trespassing if that’s what they want to call it and, you know, that’d be fine with me. I’ll still come back the next day and the next day and the next day because it’s my home and because I live here. Where else am I supposed to go really?”

WAFF 48 news reached out to Huntsville Utilities and the City Attorney but received no response.

If you’re wondering why there is a simultaneous and concerted effort in many American cities to keep people from living off their land – you might want to read about Agenda 21 either with a book called Behind the Green Mask or check out our articles on it.

In other words – this doesn’t just happen. There is no good reason why someone should be forced to hook up to utility companies or city services. None.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteAll unclassified Army and Marine Cops manuals and correspondence courses are products of the US Federal Government. They are NOT subject to copyright and can be freely copied and redistributed.

The Marine Corps Institute (MCI) develops correspondence courses for Marines with all kinds of Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) on all manner of subjects. This is one of those courses.

The print is relatively small because that is the way it was in the original and this is an exact reproduction. Also, as a tribute to the individual (and a touch of reality), you will notice that the editorial pencil marks and underlined passages that were put there by the Marine that took this course. They were intentionally left in the reproduction.

This version of the course was authorized in September of 1984. With the exception the development of Infrared technology, it contains information and techniques that have changed very little since the Vietnam war. These battle proven tactics are as valid today as they were in Quang Nam province in 1968.

They will maintain their validity during the upcoming inevitable event of total economic, political and social collapse. Yours for freedom in our lifetimes. jtl, 419

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
