City of Tulsa, Oklahoma, destroys woman's edible landscaping with over 100 varieties of medicinal plants

(NaturalNews) An Oklahoma woman is the latest victim of government terrorism after City of Tulsa code enforcement officials came to her house and illegally tore up her entire edible garden, which contained over 100 varieties of medicinal plants. Denise Morrison was in full compliance with local laws concerning her garden, and yet city officials proceeded to both violate a court order, and willfully deny Denise of her legal right to grow food on her own property by illegally destroying it.

KOTV NewsOn6.com, which was the first to break the heartbreaking story, explains a situation that is becoming disturbingly common in America today. A phantom "neighbor" allegedly complains about the victim's yard, which prompts overzealous city officials to conduct a witch hunt that includes coercing the victim into complying with their unlawful demands. When said victim refuses and tries to fight back and reclaim her legal rights, the city proceeds to trespass on her property and destroy it, along with her livelihood.

For Denise, this is exactly what happened when a "neighbor" complained about her edible garden, which she just so happened to be using to naturally treat her diabetes, high blood pressure, and arthritis. In this garden were strawberries, stevia, several varieties of mint, apple trees, pecan trees, walnut trees, grapes, lemons, garlic, and chives, to name just a few -- and each of these plants had a specific purpose in Denise's life, whether it was simply for nourishment, or for the prevention and treatment of various diseases.

But City of Tulsa code enforcement officials, apparently doped up on their own sick delusions of perceived grandeur, decided that Denise's garden violated local code, even though it most clearly did not. In fact, nowhere in the local code is there even a hint of verbiage that suggests Denise's garden was in violation of any local laws whatsoever -- Tulsa city officials appear to have simply made up phony violations in order to target Denise.

Local code reveals Denise's garden in full compliance with the law...

What does Ron Paul want us to do?

I think he wants us to help defend liberty from the local level on up. This is a great example of harassment, total disregard of this woman's liberty and this is the kind of thing we need to bring our attention to. It could happen to any of us and who would be there, nobody, that's who.

I hope you will make some calls to the newspapers, etc.. This is a terrible situation and symbolic, in so many ways, of what is wrong with our country.

As Ron Paul supporters we need to address local problems

such as this. He wants us to get involved with our local leadership and make positive changes. This is a grand opportunity to do so. These kinds of stories are getting more and more numerous, which means it can happen to anybody!

I called the neighborhood liason and she told me to contact

William Carr 918-596-7276, zoning official. We really need to call these people and let them know that this kind of behavior is simply unacceptable!

I was so disgusted with how they treated this woman,

that I called (and called) because guess what? I couldn't get ahold of anybody except a receptionist or a customer care person. It appears that the city officials of Tulsa do not think they should answer the phone personally and therefore, what happened to this woman is no surprise! We need to hold these people accountable for their actions. This is the kind of behavior that we are seeing more and more of and it is to my way of thinking, nothing more than a witch hunt. Anybody could have this happen to them it is so ridiculous! They really ruined this woman's life and that is terrible beyond measure. The local paper needs to cover this story.

Code enforcement

is a blight on humanity.

The lowest dregs of society are employed to prey upon the most upstanding and useful members of society, so that they are destroyed, leaving only the useless predatory scum that calls itself "code enforcement".
