A military veteran in Alabama says he joined the military to protect the Constitution and rights of American citizens. But now he’s facing a battle of his own and it’s not overseas. It’s on his own property.
The veteran and his girlfriends home has now been deemed “unsafe” by officials despite being full functional and livable.
Tyler Truitt and his girlfriend Soraya Hamar currently live in the city limits but live without city utilities by choice.
Huntsville officials claim that’s not allowed. The city filed a lawsuit against Truitt and Hamar, calling their self-sufficient lifestyle unsafe.
Despite no crime being committed in the so called land of the free wanting to be self reliant is now seen as an arrest able crime.
The couple says they’d rather be arrested than leave land they pay taxes to live on.
“We live out here off the grid, 100 percent self-sustaining,” Truitt said. “So I basically made all my utilities: I have my solar panels, I have my rainwater collection and stuff.”
“They say our house is a trailer, which is not allowed in city limits,” Truitt said.
City officials being the oppressors they are also took issue with Truitt’s off-the-grid lifestyle.
“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 explained.
“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,” Truitt said.
Truitt is prepared to fight for his property. “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?”
