From the South Brunswick, New Jersey Police.
Police, Fire, and Code Enforcement responded to a Georges Road warehouse for a collapsed building Tuesday morning. Officers learned the owner had a permit to demolition the building but was doing it improperly – he hooked a rope to the building and pulled it with his pick up. pic.twitter.com/QE73W5uUVA

So this gut got the right permit to destroy a building he own on his own property, but the police had a problem with how he was doing it.
Deep in my heart I’m a rural redneck.
After years of living in or near farm country in South Dakota, Indiana, and Alabama, if you have a truck and need to do some work on the homestead, you just do it.
A few weeks ago I used a truck and a winch to solve the problem of a dead tree in my front yard. I know that’s not a building, but same difference.
In half the places I’ve lived, I think the only reason the cops might get on you for taking down your own building on your own property is if you did it with a truck load of tannerite and a rifle.
In New Jersey, I’m going to guess he was probably required to get some guys with the union out there and take it down for the cost of that truck.
Maybe he’ll get a citation for failing to grease the right palms before doing some honest work.
If you want to know why Red rural America hates Blue urban America, it’s because of shit like this.
