SC woman jailed for having messy yard gets hand | CharlotteObserver.com & The Charlotte Observer Newspaper This has to be among the worst examples of big government gone insanse I've ever seen. A woman was sentenced to 10 days in JAIL because her neighbors felt her yard was too messy. Seriously. Mount Pleasant, SC (Charleston suburb) police sent a "team of officers" to her job and arrested her. I'm at a loss for words. In the USA, we are throwing someone in JAIL because neighbors thought her yard was too messy. Her "crime"? She got hit by the economy, and couldn't afford to finish her roofing job, so shingles were left. So she collected scrap metal, and stored it at her home until scrapping it for money. She was broke. But the neighbors didn't like it because they....well, just didn't like it. On her PRIVATE property. So, the men in black with guns JAILED her. For 10 days. (served 6). Mount Pleasant, SC, SHAME on you. If that doesn't sum up the direction our country is headed and/or scare you, well, nothing will. Armed men jail a broke woman because she can't afford to finish her roof. BUT IT GETS WORSE..........the same week, across the river from Mt P, the City of Charleston: Downtown homeowner told to demolish house - Live5News.com | Charleston, SC | News, Weather, Sports An arsonist burns down a mans home. The city threatens to fine him $1,000 if he doesn't immediately have the charred home demolished. WHAT if he can't afford it? He'll go to jail. WTF? The city wants the "ugly" home removed now that it's burnt. And threatens the man with fine/jail if he doesn't pay to have it demolished, whether he has the money to do so or not. Pre-fire the house wasn't a problem. Now, it is. WTF is happening in America?
