So you thought HOA Nazis vs amateur radio antennas was bad enough?
A woman was growing fruits and vegetables in her yard in Tulsa, Oklahoma: garlic chives and strawberry, apple mint and spear mint, an apple tree and a pecan tree. Someone complained about it, and city inspectors said her plants were too tall. The entire lawn would have to go.
The lady knew she was in the right; city code allows plants over 12 inches if they are meant for human consumption. She and the city went before a judge in August; the judge told them to come back in October. But the next day, the city came and bulldozed her plants.
According to a later update, she has brought a lawsuit against the city.
