City Sues Military Veteran for Ridiculous Reason

Tyler Truitt, a military veteran, and his girlfriend Soraya Hamar have been attempting to live off the grid in Huntsville, Alabama. Unfortunately, the city filed a lawsuit against the couple for living within the city without utilities. Truitt said “We live out here off the grid. 100 percent self-sustaining. So I basically made all my utilities: I have my solar panels, I have my rainwater collection and stuff.” Yet, the city told them that their lifestyle is unsafe.

Truitt added “They say our house is a trailer, which is not allowed in city limits. They came and they condemned our house and told us if we stayed here we'd be arrested for trespassing on our own property, and the reason why is, they said, it was unsafe living conditions because we don't have city utilities hooked up.” Truitt also argued that his rights and freedoms are being threatened. He stated “I took an oath that I would support and defend the Constitution and the freedoms that entails. And I really feel like those are being trampled upon. 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?"
