(NaturalNews) Government officials in California are hard at work getting rid of all the “lone rangers” living in Los Angeles County’s Antelope Valley. According to a recent report by www.reason.tv, “armed county inspection squads” are regularly raiding the residences of off-the-grid valley dwellers for alleged code violations, only to later demand that such residents completely destroy their homes and vacate their property.
Los Angeles County describes its Nuisance Abatement Team (NAT) program as a “multiagency task force assembled to abate the more difficult Code violations and public nuisance conditions on private property.” In the Antelope Valley, this has translated into targeting property dwellers who primarily live in structures or trailers that have their own private water sources, and that are powered independently from centralized power grids.
It typically starts with code inspectors showing up at residences where they begin demanding that certain changes be made, typically in response to “neighbor complains.” If property owners comply, code inspectors proceed to find additional problems that need immediate attention. The situation then continues to escalate until agents eventually reveal their true colors, and order property owners to completely destroy all buildings and vacate the property.
