Peace be with you
On July 25, 2007 Sheriff Deputies raided a piece of Humboldt County property looking for pot. They stuck guns in the faces of the residents, pepper sprayed their dogs, and ordered the people off their property so a search could conduct. No I’m not talking about the 1200 pot plant Vilica LLd bust. I’m talking about the Yee Haw bust where instead of finding the pot, the cops were so sure they’d find, they found “sleepers” instead. Now appearing as Nazish homeless haters the county is trying to throw these people to the street. The County of Humboldt should be encouraging people to open their homes, lands and buildings to help alleviate the homeless crisis; instead they’re encouraging police raids on those who do.
Monday the owner of the property and at least one of it’s tenants will be in Humboldt Superior Court to try to hang on to their place of living, or as we call it their home.
Sources inside Yee Haw say the Sheriffs acted like they were searching for marijuana, and of course we have the Vilica marijuana bust the same day with the same “code enforcement warrant.” Twelve Sheriffs with guns drawn served a county “code enforcement warrant” on the very day the owner of the land had an appointment with county code enforcement to inspect the land. It would appear on the surface as a paranoid county building inspector until you plug in the fact that they also served a “code enforcement warrant” looking for 1200 marijuana plants within a couple of hours of leaving Yee Haw.
First of all it is fucked up that we allow the county to kick these people off a place where it is legal for them to sleep. And second it is fucked up that they are doing it because of a pot bust gone bad.
