"a vial containing amphetamine salts"

Is that a churched up way of saying, "a prescription bottle of someone else's Adderall?"

This.

He thinks he knows the right legal-magical phrases and statements to make to get him out of whatever charges and make himself above the law.

He almost certainly expects to walk into court, give his incantation and expect the Judge to let him off because he said the right secret words.

I'd love to see what happens when the smackdown gets put on him.

Yes, but the meth was in bags with yellow fringe, ergo Ted Lange was the bartender on "The Love Boat," which means the judge has no authority off the Lido Deck, and, as such as, reasons, Bert Convy's corporate person never was able to award any prizes on "The Newlywed Game," i.e. Woodsy Owl killed the real Pope.

Just wait until he gets in that courtroom and sees the yellow fringe on the flag and he tells the judge that this court is an Admiralty Court and thus has no authority over him, and he walks out scot-free.

Since they aren't going to be part of our society Sovereign Citizens need to go to their own country, preferably one in the middle of the ocean.

Never argue with one, they will sue you over nothing again and again and again.  Seriously fark these people.

433: "a vial containing amphetamine salts"

Is that a churched up way of saying, "a prescription bottle of someone else's Adderall?"


Or a "please don't sue us, makers of Adderall" way of saying it. "Amphetamine salts" is the generic name. The article doesn't say whether it was his or someone else's, but it's possible that they might not have known.

It's also not the same thing as methamphetamine, Subby. They are chemically related, but methamphetamine is altered in ways that make it much more powerful, but also much more dangerous.

I think that the only way you could really make a case like this is if you could document a home birth, home schooling, never had a SSN, driver's licence, there wasn't an Govt insured loan on the home of your birth, never paid taxes, never did anything with the government.  No library card.  That would suck.  Geez, if your parents did any of that though, you're screwed.  The government does own you!  Look at the case of Charlie Ball or whatever his name is from Great Britain.  The government wants him to die, and are asserting their rights because they OWN him.

Wyoming is a county in PA just NW of Scranton, where the clown lived.  According to Wikipedia, a poem Gertrude of Wyoming about the Revolutionary War Battle of Wyoming that took place in the Wyoming valley (now known as the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area), was famous in 1809 or thereabouts.  That fame led to lots of places being named Wyoming, including the Territory which became the State.

Ideally, the citizenry SHOULD be able to outgun and outnumber the police in the event of widespread police corruption or treason or something by joining forces with or even just contacting the National Guard.

Indeed, I'm pretty sure that while cops have helicopters and sometimes spare APCs, they don' t have anything that a proper main battle tank, like the national guard has and trains with from time to time, couldn't stop with one hit. Also, I've never seen any police assets that could even dent real armor. It would not go well for the corrupt police.

The problem with the so called Sovereign Citizens attacking police is that they are not even united amongst one another. They are outnumbered by any two people and have no military assets to speak of. Even if we give the looney the benefit of the doubt about the police needing a good attacking, it's a losing proposition for a single person to take on an armed and coordinated group with assets and training to stop their enemies by force.

And, the more likely scenario is that the crazy man is in the wrong. So he's not just attacking the police force, but also potentially the citizenry, the government, and the military of the United States of America as well.

Rambo dies in the book, crazy people. You can't overthrow an established government alone. Find another outlet for your kookiness than violence, please! If you REALLY want to take out your local cops, go to school, become a lawyer, get a job as a prosecutor, and when the chance comes PRESS CHARGES.

Did you read the same article as me?

This was a righteous arrest and if anything the cops were too lenient with this guy.

If you drive on public roads your car needs to be registered.
You identify your self when the cops give you a ticket, in PA you are required to have your photo ID when driving, the cops will often give a break on this if you follow up at the cop shop within 24 hours with your license.
He could have/should have just taken the ticket.
He wanted to fight one if the officers he then chased down a cop car, all this and initially he had kids in the car. He did all this knowing he had drugs on him, he should have just gone along with the ticket and he would have skated away on the drug charge.


Are you really suggesting these wackadoodles get together so they can shoot up cops the next time they are pulled over?
