Minnesota Man Arrested, Sentenced to 6-Months in Jail for Having a Wind Turbine in his Garden

  • Hell

    • We’re livin’ smack dab in the middle of it, that’s for sure.

    • Glad, not to live in the US

  • welcome to Minnesota – not!!!

  • how dare he try and steal mother natures wind! and how comes he thinks he can just do stuff.. without a licence or permission from god on headed paper ?!.

  • imagine how us woman feel when men we don’t even know, and the y don’t know us, tell us what we can or can’t do with our bodies..

    • Meh, apples, oranges… I think men’s appearances (along with financial value, which is worse) are also dictated by the preference of the opposite sex… judging from all the bizarre trends happening all about us and the amount of competition to bed or conquer your sex. It’s just humans being human.

  • Isn’t this the same as being punished for solar panels on your home? …WTF happened to America?

  • You have got to be kidding.

    • “Jay Nygard was ordered by city officials in Orono, Minnesota, to tear down a spinning, 29ft-tall, 750-pound generator he had installed in his own garden after neighbors complained. According to those around him, the spinning device was like having a disco ball or a strobe light right outside their window, and made their lives a living nightmare…. A lawyer for the city of Orono told Fox: ‘The thing was 2 feet from his neighbor’s property line and 20-some feet tall.” Daily Mail

    • Do you thinkthe gas and oil interests could have any thing to do with some of these complaints?The future is supposed to be in alternative energy sources. We are encouraged to try things out. But it seems some one always gets their feathers ruffled and you have to take it down. I think it is nonsense.

    • Well now it all makes sense (obviously I didn’t read the article, thanks)

  • Good Lord

  • The wind is free.

  • For those mumbling about american “freedom” … wake up!

      • Rescue Me

        Wouldn’t it make sense for them to say then that he needed to block the lights or make the structure smaller? Also, why the fuck should he be jailed for not destroying the foundation of his home, a foundation which was there long before the turbine?
        I see you posting this everywhere like it justifies the extremes they’ve put this man through.
        It’s not even the first time- people have sued individuals and wind energy companies for a long time.

    • Jean Callary If what you say is true…. you are right, but in the pic it doesn’t look that tall…

  • This is wrong and probably a violation of constitutional rights. The courts did not do the right thing either – they are stupid anyway they voted for Trump. https://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=12351137778260776863&q=Nygard+sent+to+jail+in+Orono,+Minnesota&hl=en&as_sdt=6,34
