Indiana... 'Sovereign Citizen' License Plate Seized by Police!

Pendleton police have seized a license plate of a so-called "sovereign citizen," a growing group of Indiana residents who claim to be outside the law.

Police said the plate was going to be placed on a vehicle by a self-proclaimed diplomat in lieu of a state-issued plate.

Members of the sovereign citizen movement contend that they no longer have to pay taxes, claiming their homes as embassies and using identification cards that show them as diplomats, 6News' Rafael Sanchez reported.

Pendleton Police Chief Marc Farrer called such proclamations both illegitimate and illegal, and said that anyone driving with such plates will be ticketed and have their vehicle towed... the plate was turned over to the FBI.

The Secretary of State's office said about 10 people every month ask to put a seal on a document so that they can claim freedom from taxes.

Former federal prosecutor Larry Mackey, who helped to convict Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols in the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995, said Nichols claimed he was a "sovereign citizen."

"He would carry out his beliefs by having a license plate that said UCC Chapter 9, and thereby think that he was exempt from licensing his vehicle. He would send mail with the U.S.

Flag stamp upside down to demonstrate his protest against tax laws," Mackey said. "There are people who get engaged in this warfare against the federal government … that simply are not well-adjusted."

Despite Nichols' association with the movement, not all sovereign citizens support domestic terrorism.

I'm a Sovereign in Wisconsin state. The Police and State Troopers don't know how to do their job. Supposedly they are to uphold the Constitution.

What they won't tell you is that through your various contracts[birth cert., marriage cert., SSN] with the corporation known as US GOVERNMENT, you are under Maritime Jurisdiction. Sovereigns have not given away their birthright. Check the UCC Code. Sovereigns are not Federal PERSONS.

So called Law Enforcement is a farce. They don't know what the law is so how can they enforce it properly. BTW, there is so much legal info on this subject of being a Freeman vs a Federal Person it doesn't take too long to find out how they did this to you.
