Fined $18,000 for Clearing Trees to Build Home

As we have seen, shoplifting in California is effectively legal now, those in charge openly siding with criminals and against business owners. It sounds like anarchy, but the system of government imposed under single-party Democrat rule is better categorized as “anarchotyranny.” Yes, thieves and other sociopaths can do whatever they please, but it is a different story for property owners who clear trees to build something:

A couple who bulldozed and buried 36 Joshua trees to make way for a home were recently fined $18,000…

Imagine the havoc a Black Lives Matter rioter would have to wreak to get punished like that.

This is why the cost of housing keeps Californians poor. You can’t put up so much as a garden shed without violating forty-eleven regulations.

As in other forms of tyranny, not even Big Government can be everywhere, so informants play a crucial role:

An investigation into the destruction began Feb. 11, when a Morongo Basin resident saw his neighbors using a tractor to mow down dozens of the twisted, bristled trees and reported it to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife through a tip line, wildlife officials said.

East Germany’s infamous Stasi had about 189,000 informers. Deutsche Welle reports that “political ideals served as the primary motivation for people to turn in their neighbors, friends and acquaintances to the secret police.” Similarly, sheer moonbattery is enough to motivate liberals to rat people out. The State doesn’t even need to pay them rewards.

On a tip from Wiggins.
