Donald Scott owned some land abutting a national park in California. The Feds coveted his land...even had it appraised. They raided his house, and he was shot dead.
The widow ended up selling the land to the government in order to pay her legal fees.
Thank you! Thank you! I have been trying to remember this one all day. You forgot one little detail, though. This was a drug raid. Remember, if they want your land, all they have to do is accuse you of selling or using dope.
There are MANY cases here in CA where this has happened. I just wonder what takes them so long to go after run down crack houses? /sarcasm
