The “officials” in Tawas, Michigan had a man and woman caged for keeping chickens on their property.

As shared by WNEM.com, the couple thought they would be given the opportunity to explain why they were keeping chickens but instead they were jailed.

As is explained on RealFarmacy.com, the justification given by the aggressors was that the couple was guilty of the heinous action of “junk and blight.”

They want to control our food. Keeping chickens should not get you arrested. This is hardly the first instance of something like this happening. This is the outcome of a legislative move to criminalize backyard farms and small, residential farming operations.

Certainly, if a person or group of people is believed to have the sole right to set standards of conduct for strangers, and to then enforce their dictates through ransoms, those self-imposed rulers are incentivized to define peaceful actions as “illicit.”
