Regular readers here know that when the question of cops being “peace officers” or “law enforcement officers” comes up, my answer is, “They have to be both. They can’t keep the peace against law-breakers without enforcing the law, and the enforcement of the law does keep the peace.” I said pretty much the same in another publication I write for frequently, and a letter came in to the editor there from a reader I’ll call “W.” He said in part:
“There was nothing in (Ayoob’s) statements that wasn’t false or misleading. Back when we were living under the common Law, sometimes referred to as “Public Law” (set aside back in 1933 when the bankers stole our Lawful money), there was no such thing as ‘law enforcement officers,” because under the common Law there was only one Law, summed up in the golden rule; ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ Preserving the peace is what ‘Peace Officers’ are for. When Marshal Dillon made his rounds visiting the Long Branch, and other saloons in Dodge City, he was keeping the peace by letting his presence be known. Dillon’s purpose was to remind the ne’er-do-wells and rowdies to behave themselves. The people knew when they were interfering with the rights of others; the common law was considered to be self-evident—common sense, and ignorance of this Law was no excuse. Peace officers didn’t go around ‘enforcing’ anything; the People were free. But once Marshal Dillon ordered a person to turn over his gun while he was in town, he was breaking the law by enforcing an unconstitutional man-made rule. We all have the right and duty (if we are capable), to arrest those who violate the law, but that is not ‘enforcing the law,’ by forcing obedience to man-made rules. We have been dumbed down so far that today people actually believe that we cannot live without millions of statues (sic) to regulate us, and cops everywhere—to charge us (bill us) whenever we break a rule. Most, if not all of the 63-million statutes ‘enforced’ by ‘law enforcement officers’ today are unlawful; they do not even apply to most people, who put far too much trust in the British Accredited Registry (BAR Association) and it’s (sic)attorney members (including judges) who have taken over our judicial system.”
Wow. At first glance, one might have thought his writing “statues” when he meant “statutes” was just a typo, but a full reading showed he probably didn’t know a statute from a statue. Using TV fiction as an example is a dead giveaway (does this guy think Marshal Dillon wasn’t enforcing the law when he blew bad guys away on the streets of Dodge City in almost every episode?) But you couldn’t finish the above without getting a very strong whiff of the bizarre alternate history of the self-declared “sovereign citizen.”
I figured I should get a little more familiar with “W” before I responded to his strange screed, so I did a bit of research. It didn’t take long to determine why “W” didn’t like law enforcement: he had been convicted for illegally manufacturing and selling firearms subsequent to a BATFE investigation. I found a hilarious transcript from his time in court where one of the world’s most patient judges decisively shot down the meaningless drivel “W” pompously babbled in court for the record.
And “W” had enough hate to go around, way past law enforcement. Elsewhere, “W” had written among other things,
“I do not relate to homosexuality, suicide, or race mixing— especially with Negros.”
However, “W” reserved his most potent vitriol for his raging anti-Semitism. Some examples from his babbling elsewhere:
“All of the suppression and problems in this world can be traced to some agenda of the self-chosen Jews and the Protocols spell them out for us.”
“The reason for all the (JFK assassination) conspiracy theories was to distract us from the fact that Oswald was one of their own, a communist (the Jews invented communism through their god Lucifer), and they didn’t want us to focus on Oswald because we might begin to connect the dots and figure out how despicable these troublemakers really are.”
“Jews consider us, the true Israelites, goyim, non-Jew cattle or farm animals for their use and harvesting.”
Haters gonna hate…and sometimes, they hate everything and everyone. In poor “W’s” case, it apparently led him straight to a diagnosis of batshit crazy.
