Family threatened with jail over purple playground


KRIS: SANCTIONS AND EVEN JAIL TIME IF THEY DO NOT GET RID OF IT. THE FAMILY IS SET UP AND DONE KEEPING QUIET. THEY HELPED HILDA LITTLE BIT. — BUILD A LITTLE BIT. USED TO BE PURPLE AND PINK BUT NOW IT IS JUST REALLY PINK. WE WENT WITH THIS WHICH IS AN ACTUAL WOOD STAIN. THAT IS THE CONCESSION THE HLA — HOA MADE. MORE LETTERS AND MORE SERIOUS IN NATURE. QUICK SAYING IF WE DID NOT REMOVE THE SWING SET WITHIN A COUPLE OF WEEKS WE COULD GO TO JAIL. THE REAL DEAL, JAIL. THE FAMILY TELLS ME THE HOPE THE HOA WOULD JUST LET IT GO. THEY WENT TO THE NEIGHBORS WHO COULD SEE THE PURPLE PLAYGROUND AND ASKED THEM TO SIGN A PETITION SAYING THEY DID NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT. ACCORDING TO THE FAMILY, HOA SAID IT WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. HE SEES THE PLAYGROUND QUITE A BIT BUT HE IS NOT SEEING PURPLE. HE IS SEEING RED THAT THE HOA HAS TAKEN IT THIS FAR. I AM PERTURBED THEY WOULD WASTE MONEY PURSUING SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO ATTACK GOOD PEOPLE AND GO AFTER A SWING SET. KRIS: WE REACHED OUT TO THE ATTORNEY FOR THE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION. NO WORD FROM THEM. GUIDELINE SAY A PLAYGROUND MUST

  1. At frame 0:40 I see another play set that is brown. Let me guess, the HOA got involved after they received a complaint. HOAs can be beneficial; however, neighbors often use the HOA to get back at their neighbors. I'm bet'n the neighbor with the other set probably called and complained. A good neighbor would paint theirs the same color.

  2. It's their home, Personally I think like the Electoral College should be done away with, so should Home Owners Associations, I was part of one and they can become very authoritarian and tyrannical.

  3. Some "codes enforcer" is behind this nonsense and he's not even a resident.  One day the prick will pull this bs on the wrong people and find himself hanging from a swing.

  4. right now : everyone with non-brown coloured garden enhancements go straight to federal county prison camp to register.
    everyone else was just lucky this time…

  5. What is the jailable offense this hoa thinks they can have them arrested for? There should be stricter laws on what these hoa can and cannot do. They have the freedom to harass and even foreclose.

  6. the only thing out of harmony with the community is the HOA itself. Seriously, a family can get thrown in jail with actual criminal charges for building a playground for their children, but the police can't incarcerate someone with criminal charges for squatting in their house? And the police can't file criminal charges against the bank for foreclosing the wrong house at the bank had no right to and stealing all of their stuff? Really? Is that America?

  7. This has got to be the dumbest HOA in the world. HOA's cannot send you to jail over something this stupid. That was just a useless threat and not enforceable. Not even residents or businesses can have you arrested. All they can do is ask you to leave the property. But, HOA's threatening to arrest you over a playground set? LOLS

  8. Alright! God Bless America. I'm so disappointed they didn't arrest this couple and put their kids in foster care for such a blatant lack if respect for the rules. This is the freedom our service men are dying for, to protect us from evil people like these. Clearly must be terrorist or something

  9. I think the Home Owner's Association is being a bit vindictive. We can't fine you so we're going to put you in jail because of made up HOA rules?

  10. HOA's operate in sovereign capacity on U.S. soil.
    I can't just say my house is foreign soil and get away with it.
    HOA's should be disbanded by local and state governments.

  11. Very convincing; great acting. If the story was not so preposterous, it could pass as a real news story. Lol, people really have too much time on their hands; to make videos like this. Good job!

  12. Be advised, NO HOME OWNERS ASSOCIATION has laws and there fore they cannot enforce a law. They have rules, which will NEVER result in jail time unless you take a bat to the HOA representative for talking trash about your purple playground. These children are happy, healthy and thriving with good parents. Is this NOT WHAT WE WANT for the kids?

  13. HOA's are a bad idea. A persons home should be their castle to do with as they choose. It would be a better world if people would mind their own business.

  14. Yep got to follow rules, my storage is below the fence so no one can see it if everyone was able to do what they want the place would look like a mess. Go look at the 30-year-old neighborhoods they have tarps of all colors, boat, campers, houses are different colors is a madhouse. and yes I hate HOA grew up in a townhome and they were mean but I learned as a little kid what to do and how to fly under the radar

  15. Other colors of the community. I’ll get a lawsuit against the HOA and beat them up if I lose. Because that pisses me off when I hear that

  16. LOL jail, give me a break. That said, HOAs can put in some pretty bogus stipulations and fine you. It blows my mind how many people buy a home in an HOA and don't read through what that exactly means… if there is SOMETHING in there about a purple playground (LOL) then you gotta deal with it.

  17. Well, if you are stupid enough to move into one of these communist controlled HOA communities, you get what you signed up for.

  18. HOA's can only put a lien on property for unpaid fines or other expenses. The liens can be challenged in court. These issues of bad HOAs arise because too few owners show up at meetings or want to be on the HOA boards. Check your bylaws and you'll learn that there are ways to oust board members.

  19. HOAs need to go away. No response from the Cowards of that HOA. Shocker. Cowards. They hate the American Flag but yet they live here. They hate children but yet they live near them. HOAs Hate in General.

  20. Well, that would be an embarrassing conversation, what are you in jail for, rape, murder, robbery, painted my swing set purple
