Man Jailed For Collecting Rainwater Illegally on his Property


Summary (according to his lawyer):

1- Gary went to the authorities for a permit.

2- Gary was told he didn’t need a permit. They said they didn’t own the water so it was unnecessary.

3- The authorities decided that they now owned the water.

4- The authorities sent him to jail for not having a permit.

5- Judge says that telling the Jury what happened in steps 1 and 2 would “influence the jury’s decision” (duh) so they weren’t allowed to tell anything from steps 1 and 2 in the court case.

THIS is the stuff that the ranchers in Oregon were talking about when they occupied the empty park building. This is exactly the sort of bullcrap they wanted the government to listen to them about. They asked for someone to come out and talk to them.

Instead, the Feds sent the FBI, BLM and Oregon Troopers to ambush and shoot, injure and kill the ranchers rather than talk to them.

And they still can’t understand why some folks are upset.

    Judge should be censured & jury should have been told. Jail for collecting rainwater under the Constitution is “cruel and unusual punishment!”
