The intrepid Free Staters are at it again, this time in pursuit of Code Compliance Officers- government officials who invade your property without search warrants or probable cause and inflict significant economic hardship on ordinary taxpayers.
While different in degree from their brothers in Law Enforcement and other tiers of the Kakistocracy, nevertheless, Code Compliance Officers still occupy an important place in the firmament of petty ante tyranny.
Remember this guy?
In 1991 Rader was hired to be supervisor of the Compliance Department at Park City, a two-employee, multi-functional department in charge of “animal control, housing problems, zoning, general permit enforcement and a variety of nuisance cases.”
In this position, neighbors recalled him as sometimes overzealous and extremely strict; one neighbor complained that he euthanized her dog for no reason.
On March 2, 2005, the Park City council terminated Rader’s employment for failure to report to work or to call in; he had been arrested for the murders seven days earlier.
