Sovereign Citizens and Law Enforcement

From the Southern Poverty Law Center:

This Southern Poverty Law Center video was created to help law enforcement agencies better prepare for encounters with “sovereign citizens.” In the case of two West Memphis, Ark., police officers, Brandon Paudert and Bill Evans, a routine traffic stop of father-and-son sovereign citizen duo Jerry and Joe Kane in May proved fatal when son Joe, 16, leaped from the car firing an AK-47, cutting down both officers. The Kanes died in a shootout with police an hour later in a Wal-Mart parking lot after wounding two more officers. SPLC estimates that as many as 300,000 people may consider themselves sovereign citizens — and the number is growing.

So let’s be clear. Two fatalities are the basis for labeling Patriots as Sovereign Citizens? And that is the point: a label will be used to classify people standing up for the Constitution as enemies of the state. I hope that this is not the training video that Sheriff Harrison of Wake County was referring to in his speech.

I am not advocating violence or watering the tree of Liberty.  But. If a price is to be paid for our children’s Liberty, let’s pray that the truth will be recorded instead of a usurped government’s rationalization for tyranny. Since I am on the SPLC “list”, what does that make me? Am I defined by a label or my convictions? Are you?

“So let’s be clear. Two fatalities are the basis for labeling Patriots as Sovereign Citizens? ” Are you saying that is what Donnie Harrison has done? I’m confused -- please elaborate

Also, are you condoning the actions of the Kane’s? You don’t friggin open fire on a police officer for pulling you over. That’s crazy.

I understand the frustrations with what is going on in the country. But it seems to me, you are choosing to align yourself with cold-blooded murdering nutcases -- I don’t give a shit WHAT their stand was about the government.

Regarding Randy Weaver -- I see that as an entirely different situation. That’s why the government had to pay up, for their offenses. Did they have to pay enough? Probably not. Still, you don’t open fire because you got pulled over on the highway.

I also think that in a calm one-on-one with Sheriff Harrison, you would find that what you “think” he was saying…kill the Patriots, or whatever, is NOT what he was saying.

Take a breath, calm down, and recognize that the terms that you are using for Sovereigns is NOT the same thing as he is referring to. Do you think you shouldn’t have to pay ANY taxes? Do you think the the federal government has NO legal authority? Do you think that you are “immune” from the law? Do you think you have the right to open fire on a police office that pulls you over for a traffic violation? That’s NOT what I have seen.

But he is saying that there ARE people who believe that, and THOSE are the people that are a threat, specifically to law enforcement. If you continue to appear to identify with cold-blooded killers, you are going to be lumped into that category. I suggest that you make it clear, in no uncertain terms, that you do NOT condone the actions of the Kanes.
