A YouTube video showing a Dallas City councilperson talking about trying to steal a man’s land has gone viral.
In the video, Sandy Greyson is seen talking about how she is mad that a rich man has been able to fight the government’s claim to his land.
“This is an eminent domain case for a much needed water line” Greyson starts off. She continues with “And the Council is being asked today to go to settle this case with a man who has fought us for years and has cost Dallas taxpayers millions of dollars and intends to cost us millions more unless we settle with him by going around his property.”
“Now other, ordinary people, regular people like you and I, who can’t afford to fight the city of Dallas over an eminent domain case for years and years, I mean, we end up getting our property taken. And sometimes it’s very necessary. We need water lines, we need roads, we need some of these public improvements.”
“So I’m not blaming anyone that we’re settling this case today, I mean, I totally understand that we’re doing kind of what we have to do here, but it’s just INFURIATING that if you are rich enough you can hold the city hostage for years and then get what you want.”
“There’s something really wrong with that. I’m so conflicted on this vote, didn’t want to make the motion, because while I so want to vote “NO” on this, neither do I want to continue to spend more money fighting with this guy, because in the end, we’re settling because he’ll probably win.”
“But it is just infuriating. We have people come down here saying ‘please don’t take my property’, and because they’re just an ordinary person we take their property. But this guy’s rich enough to fight us for years and so he is gunna win. It’s just so maddening.”
This is beyond disturbing. Our politicians are so drunk on power that they now believe they have the right to steal land from innocent Americans and criticize them when they fight to keep their land.
How do you feel about this? Do you think every American should have the right to keep the land they own? Share this story on social media and leave a comment below.
