Family Maple Sugaring business destroyed as Constitution felled trees in advance of pipeline approva

In Pennsylvania a family lost their land to eminent domain. The family's maple sugaring operation was destroyed by the felling of trees, left on the ground, although the project has not yet been approved.

Although there were protests, U.S. armed marshalls stood by while supporters of the family stood by, helpless to stop the destruction.

We often hear from these pipeline pushers say they are promoting jobs. What about jobs, land, homes, livelihood and personal histories lost?
