When the chips are down, .gov can do whatever they want. I am convinced that this is fact. Even if they are wrong, and later found to be wrong, nobody will EVER step up and confront the government during the act, right or wrong.

Are you asking if the .gov has legal authority to remove you from your home or if the .gov can remove you from your home?

Without Martial law declared (by Congress or by the POTUS - I'm not sure if the POTUS has the authority to declare it or not...) the local, state or Federal Gov't cannot force you to leave your home without a warrant for your arrest and they can only get a warrant for your arrest if you have broken the law.

So unless the state gov't passes a law stating that you must leave and Martial Law hasn't been declared I don't think the .gov has the legal authority to force you to leave your home.

+1

They can do whatever the fuck they want.

Legally and constitutionally, no.


I believe the only condition under which the government can physically remove you from YOUR property against your will, is if you will definitely lose your life if they don't act. Since there is no such definitive situation in New Orleans - staying might be a bad idea, and unhealthy or dangerous, but so is smoking, being overweight or mountain climbing, and none of those things negate your rights either.

You also have the right to keep and bare arms , well unless your currently in New Orleans and in your OWN HOUSE

I could understand not allowing carry but taking weapons from people "in" their own home.

Now THATS dfkd up.

Its prolly so they wont have to face those weapons next week when they do start forcing holdouts to leave their OWN personal property.

UnFknBelievable.

I was assured by the board sea lawyers that due process has been suspended in NOLA.

Who's going to stop them, really? The government of the government?

They are the ones that enforce their own rules. If they want to ignore them, they can. There's only one way to remedy that, and it's not a solution that anyone wants to have to face.

Let's relate this to a condemned building: Absolutely the govt can make you vacate a condemned building that you own and want to live in, so why can't they make you vacant a uninhabitable building condemned because of flooding?

Can they force you to leave your house?

Not if you don't answer the door when they come around.

This is where I, a non-lawyer, get confused. How can any law or man override the Constitution, what was once the supreme law of the land?

Watched two NOPD slobs wrestle a 60 year-old woman to the ground this morning... (FOX news 3:50mst)

She was healthy. She had food and water. Her house was clean.



I urge any LEOs reading this to avoid (or actively resist) that kind of stuff. "It's for your own good," is a bullshit argument and the men taking part are scum.

Just practice by government for later.

The government will do whatever it appears are in its best interests at that moment, regardless of legal authority. They will let the lawyers sort it out later.

They have the POWER to do it right now.


I don't believe the federal government has the legal authority to force you off your land without due process--but what that means exactly in exigent circumstances it subject to interpretation, hence the debate and the tendancy to sort it out later through the courts.

Seems like they are doing it NOW...................legal or not!!!!

You know there are parts of New Orleans that didn't flood, right?

ETA: And why DOES the government get to tell me whether I can live in a bulding that I own. If I want to risk rat bites and cholera by living in a government "condemmed" building that I own, how is that more dangerous than mountain climbing or base jumping?

I don't agree with it at all, if the home owner wants to stay and defend their property, they have the right to do so.

This sets a dangerous precedent!

I'm not sure I would turn my home over to the looters. We always have a supply of water and food on hand. Plenty of ammo for almost any situation.

After eminent domain, I'm honestly worried about making a commitment to a mortgage.
