This Man Fought for His Country, Now He's Facing Arrest for Living Off-Grid...

Tyler Truitt joined the military to fight for America's freedom. However, after returning, he is quickly realizing that the supposed "freedom" that he fought for, is pipe dream.

Truitt lives on his own property, but because he's not tied into the city's electricity and utility grid, his very existence has been deemed illegal.

"We live out here off the grid, 100 percent self-sustaining," Truitt said. "So I basically made all my utilities: I have my solar panels, I have my rainwater collection and stuff."

Truitt lives on his own private property in a modular home. He creates his own electricity and collects his water from the rain. If anything, this couple is a net gain to society and to the environment for having a carbon footprint of zero and living sustainably.
