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?
