<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">On Oct. 17, 2007, Marcelle opened the door to a loud knock. Her heart jumped when she found a man backed by two armed county agents in bulletproof vests. She was alone in the cabin, a dot in the vast open space of the Antelope Valley, without a neighbor for more than half a mile. She feared that something had happened to her daughter, who was visiting from Montreal.

The men demanded her driver's license, telling her, "This building is not permitted everything must go." Normally sassy, Marcelle handed over her ID even her green card, just in case. Stepping out, she realized that her 1,000-square-foot cabin was surrounded by men with drawn guns. "You have no right to be here," one informed her. Baffled and shaking with fear, she called her daughter please come right away.

As her ordeal wore on, she heard one agent, looking inside their comfortable cabin, say to another: "This one's a real shame this is a real nice one."

A "shame" because the authorities eventually would enact some of the most powerful rules imaginable against rural residents: the order to bring the home up to current codes or dismantle the 26-year-old cabin, leaving only bare ground.

"They wouldn't let me grandfather in the water tank," Jacques Dupuis says. "It is so heart-wrenching because there was a way to salvage this, but they wouldn't work with me. It was, 'Tear it down. Period.' "

In order to clear the title on their land, the Dupuises are spending what would have been peaceful retirement days dismantling every board and nail of their home by hand because they can't afford to hire a crew.

Tough code enforcement has been ramped up in these unincorporated areas of L.A. County, leaving the iconoclasts who chose to live in distant sectors of the Antelope Valley frightened, confused and livid. They point the finger at the Board of Supervisors' Nuisance Abatement Teams, known as NAT, instituted in 2006 by <span style='font-size: 26pt'>Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich</span> in his sprawling Fifth District. </div></div>

..which is surprising because we all know how much the GOP hates regulations.


This is weird. There must be something going on.

Why did you truncate the article where you did?

What's that?

The rest of the article would have exposed you as a fraud in promoting your agenda of hate?

The man was simply following the law ... and that this policy began in the 1970's.

Grow up and stop hitting the HATERADE so early in the AM.

No matter how low the bar is set ... you can never clear it.

The LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK KKKKKK!!!!!!! (http://www.laweekly.com/2011-06-23/news/l-a-county-s-private-property-war/) was already provided by you.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The government can define land on which residents have lived for years as "vacant" if their cabins, homes and mobile homes are on parcels <span style='font-size: 11pt'>where the land use hasn't been legally established.</span> <span style='font-size: 11pt'><span style="color: #3333FF">This means they built without a permit. It never ceases to amaze me how nits such as yourself will champion an omnipotent gubmint and then scowl when it uses power in ways that you disapprove of ... all the while spewing hate at folks such as myself for proposing limits on gubmint.</span></span> ...

Some top county officials insist that <span style='font-size: 11pt'>nothing new is unfolding. Michael Noyes, deputy in charge of code enforcement for Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley, says, "We've had a unit in the office through the '70s and '80s."</span> But key members of the county NAT team say that "definitely, yes," a major focus on unincorporated areas was launched in 2006. Cooley declined to comment through his media spokesman.</div></div>
