Various law enforcement agencies around the United States and Canada are starting to get real “pissed’ at people who run around calling themselves “Freemen of the Land!”
(“Freemen on the land” are a loose group of people who claim that all statute law is contractual, and that such law is applicable only if an individual consents to be governed by it. They believe that they can therefore declare themselves independent of government jurisdiction, holding that the only “true” law is common law, as they define it. The “Freeman on the land” movement has its origins in various United States-based groups in the 1970s and 1980s, reaching Ireland, the United Kingdom and Canada soon after 2000.   Many “Freemen” beliefs are based on idiosyncratic interpretations of Admiralty or Maritime law, which they claim governs the commercial world. These beliefs stem from fringe interpretations of various nautical-sounding words, such as ownership, citizenship, dock, or birth (berth) certificate. Freemen refer to the court as a “ship”, the court’s occupants as “passengers” and claiming that anyone leaving are “men overboard” The FBI considers “sovereign citizen extremists” to be part of a domestic terrorist movement.  – Wikipedia)
Seems these guys are dangerous because not only do they not want to obey societal laws, THEY ARE WILLING TO USE FORCE (GUNS!) TO DO WHATEVER  THEY WANT!
(It’s gotten to the point where if a cop even hears the words “Freeman of the land” they will step back and draw their gun!)
The latest bullshit from these people is a claim that they don’t need a drivers license to get around because they have “freedom to travel!” (This is because a lot of them have lost their drivers license for other stupid stuff!)
HERE IS ANOTHER ARTICLE THAT DISPLAYS A CASE OF CONVOLUTED LOGIC IN THEIR MIXED UP WORLD. (They also quote nonsensical court cases to back up their  erroneous claims.)
For many years professionals within the criminal justice system have acted upon the belief that traveling by motor vehicle upon the roadway was a privilege that was gained by a citizen only after approval by their respective state governments in the form of a permit or drivers license.
Legislators, police officers, and court officials are being made aware that there are court decisions disproving the opinion that traveling is a privilege that requires government approval.
“Even the legislature has no power to deny to a citizen the right to travel upon the highway and transport his property in the ordinary course of his business or pleasure, though this right may be regulated in accordance with the public interest and convenience.” Chicago Motor Coach v. Chicago, 169 NE 22.
(“Regulated” here means traffic safety enforcement: stop lights, signs, etc.)
“The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit at will, but a common right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 179.
It could not be stated more conclusively that citizens of the states have a right to travel, without approval or restrictions (license), and that this right is protected under the U.S. Constitution. Here are other court decisions that expound the same facts:
“The right to travel is a part of the liberty of which the citizen cannot be deprived without due process of law under the 5th Amendment.” Kent v. Dulles, 357 US 116, 125.
asshole trophy“Undoubtedly the right of locomotion, the right to move from one place to another according to inclination, is an attribute of personal liberty, and the right, ordinarily, of free transit from or through the territory of any State is a right secured by the 14th amendment and by other provisions of the Constitution.” Schactman v. Dulles, 96 App DC 287, 293…………………
And then it goes on and on for a bunch of pages1
The whole point of this article is this folks, if ya run across any of these assholes ………………, give them a wide berth!
Oh, they are also our “Assholes of the Day!”
London, Ontario is a city of almost half a million people, of which about 75,000 are students at University of Western Ontario and Fanshawe College!

Driving through downtown this afternoon I noticed cop cars on just about every corner, and the whole city centre seemed to be crawling with them.
Couldn’t figure out what was up until a taxi pulled up beside me with a load of university students wearing green hats!
That explained the cops alright!
