Video: Sovereign Citizen Attacks Texas Cop
A self-proclaimed "sovereign citizen" went head-to-head with a local police officer in a bizarre confrontation.
The video at the bottom of this article is possibly one of the wildest I've covered. Let's break it down!
The incident began when a man, who identified himself as a sovereign citizen, refused to comply with a routine investigation. Sovereign citizens believe that they are immune to the laws of the land, declaring themselves "sovereign" and asserting that they are not subject to government jurisdiction. This controversial belief system has been a source of tension and conflict with law enforcement in the past.
He's Not Giving You the Dog
The video starts off with the officer approaching the "Sovereign Citizen" (SC from here out) and informing him that the cute dog he's hanging with is not his property. The officer asks him for identification, and things start popping off!
SC claims that he doesn't have to comply. He claims he wasn't present during his birth, so he doesn't know his name. Cool! The officer slaps the handcuff on one of his wrists.
Didn't Expect That
There's some back in forth between the two, the cop attempts to puy the handcuffs on SC's other wrist which leads to a struggle as they fall to the ground. SC, who was so calm and cool before, gets the upper hand and starts beating the officer and screaming at him.
Not So Tough Now
After a while, the cop gets the situation under control, handcuffs SC, and puts him in the back of the squad car, which he immediately throws himself out of onto the ground below.
SC begins to cry and plead for forgiveness, mere minutes after beating on the cop.
