The new fence at a Texas home where Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest was born is raising concerns among residents about the safety of the house’s perimeter fence.
The fence was installed last year to protect the house from intruders, but it’s now being used as a recruiting tool by a local activist group.
The activists have been posting videos of themselves pushing and shoving their way through the fence and asking the homeowner for money.
They’ve also been using it as a propaganda tool to drum up support for the group that owns the property.
A local homeowner told the Dallas Morning News that she was worried about her safety when the activists began pushing through the house and that the house was in danger.
She said that the activists were using the fence as a recruitment tool.
She also said that she had spoken to the group, and said that if she didn’t take action to keep her home secure, she would be attacked by the group.
She told the newspaper that she called 911 when the group began pushing past her fence and said, “If I don’t take them out, they’re going to shoot at me.”
She said the group had previously threatened to kill her family and that she is concerned about the security of her family’s home.

A spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed that the department was investigating the incident and that it is working with local law enforcement to ensure that no other people are injured or endangered.
