City of Tulsa, Oklahoma, destroys woman's edible landscaping with over 100 varieties of medicinal plantsSubmitted by hortulanus94 on Thu, 06/21/2012 - 14:03
(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.
