City tramples property rights
Tulsa resident Denise Morrison is suing city officials after they tore up her garden because of alleged municipal code violations. As this video reveals, however, Morrison had actually read the ordinance, solicited clarification on what specifically was wrong with her garden, and was preparing for a court hearing on the matter when the city cut down all of her plants without notice. Such cavalier and arbitrary government action is an embarrassment to a society which purports to value the rule of law, the right of private property and the peaceful resolution of disputes through the judicial system.
