As you may or may not know, South DaCola helped break this story. A regular commenter on this site ‘Plaintiff’ had a story about his lawsuit in the Argus Leader today. It’s an amazing story about property rights and the US Constitution. Though I think it will go over most people’s heads, I do think it is worth reading. I also think that it gives the regular Joe the excuse to read and learn more about the freedoms our country provides in that very document (Constitution). We have freedom in this country not only because of our brave men and women who put their lives on the line everyday across the globe, but we have these freedoms because of people like Mr. Daily (who ironically not only fought for those freedoms in a courtroom but also on a battlefield). America’s freedoms are not in a piece of cloth, but they are embedded in us and that is what makes America the greatest country in the world.
I commend Dan for fighting for those freedoms and I also want to extend a big thank you to Mr. Ellis for doing the story – a great journalist that will go far. The AL should consider themselves very F’ing lucky to have him.
I’ll let the article speak for itself, but I did enjoy this comment;
Linde said he thinks the city’s administrative process is “ripe for ad-hoc decision making.”
“I don’t think it’s as fair as a magistrate or circuit court in the state of South Dakota,” he said. “I don’t think you have as much protection. I also think that some people acting as the prosecutors are the ones making up the rules.”
