    I spend a lot of time in New Mexico.
    It’s not uncommon to see “compounds” in the middle of the high country desert. You will drive for miles with nothing but sage brush, and off in the distance see a dwelling more like a shack than a home. Sometimes electric lines running to it, sometimes not.
    I’ve always wondered how they survive. It would be a tough life.

    Crazy! I knew in all the stories they said the compound was in Northern New Mexico but then this thread said something about the compound was located in Amalia, NM. Crap, I was just in Amalia a couple weeks ago when we were on vacation in Red River. Went up to Costilla, NM and then took State route 196 through Costilla Park and all the way through 60 miles of dirt roads out to Cimarron, NM.

    I heard the NE NM part of the story, but I never heard of a nearby city.

    Well, well, well, seems a darling of the dems is within the scope of the perp. If into degrees of separation this looks like 1..

    "Nobody is talking about Wahhaj's well-connected father, Siraj Wahhaj Sr., a radical Brooklyn imam who is the spiritual adviser to Democratic Socialist and Bernie Sanders supporter Linda Sarsour.

    The elder Wahhaj also has ties to the two most prominent U.S. Muslim organizations -- the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, and the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA -- and he was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center."

    There are more of these "compounds" in our country and politicians are sitting on their hands until something happens and they'll say, "This wasn't on my radar, we didn't know." Political correctness has killed a lot of people in recent years but hey, they're expendable apparently.

    My perspective on this disturbing story: In a free country the govt should not be investigating unconventional people. That is not to say that that neighbors should not be curious about unconventional people. Neighborliness/nosiness has it's value even in very spread out areas. People who go out of their way to isolate themselves in every way should create a red flag in the minds of area people.

    So what do you propose? Forbid people to live out away from others and mind their own business? Require random spot inspections by law enforcement?

    I'm serious; how would you address the problem of these "compounds," and how would it be consistent with our constitutional and civil rights?

    The neighbor said they kept knocking down his fence and were encroaching on his land. He reported it and nothing was done. What about his rights?

    Do you have a link for that? I can’t seem to find that quote.

    It's the original OP link.
    First reading I took that to mean fence, but it could just mean everything legal he did was knocked down. IDK.
