This is a traffic stop based on true events that happened to me about 2 years ago. I tried to keep the script as close as possible from my memory as to what was said. This demonstrates the violence that agents of the state are willing to use in order to enforce their opinions upon the mass. Less than a third of the population even votes, yet these small group of men/women, calling themselves “public servants” believe that they can call us criminals, even if we haven’t harmed anyone or their property. Furthermore, the services they offer are completely monopolized and propped up by racketeering. Enjoy the following scenario.
Officer: Hi, I need your Drivers License and registration, this is a safety checkpoint.
Me: I am being stopped without cause? And I am not driving , Im traveling privately and am not conducting commerce. I don’t have licenses, and if I ever have had one it was created under duress. And I am who I am. I am not a name. And if I did have those things, they are private property and you need a warrant for those things.
Officer: What is your social security number sir?
Me: I do not recognize such a number as I do not accept the mark of the beast. I conduct commerce peacefully sir.
Officer: How do you work if you dont have a social security number?
Me: I use my hands to work with sir.
Officer: When is your date of birth?
Me: I do not recall that day, as I had no cognitive abilities. My birthdate is only hearsay. However, I can give you a guess as to when I was conceived.
Officer: What’s your nationality?
Me: Pledging allegiance to a flag or a king, also violates my religious beliefs. As far as I know, I am just a natural inhabitant of North America. I am not familiar with such classifications.
Officer: what is your current address?
Me: Where I lay my head is home sir. I am a nomad.
Officer: Hmmm….are you a liberal or a conservative?
Me: I am male, whom is 5’11 and 165 pounds sir. I am not familiar with such labels.
Officer: Do you know why I stopped you?
Me: I only stopped because you have a gun, and I am very afraid for my life. I haven’t harmed any persons or property. Please don’t kill me.
Officer: Im not going to kill you! I just pulled you over because your headlights were not on and its raining, and the law says you must have them on so Im going to write you a ticket, sign it here please. This is a routine matter. We often set up checkpoints during inclement weather to make sure folks are driving safe.
Me: Do I have to sign it?
Officer: You dont have to. But, if you don’t a warrant will be issued for your arrest.
Me: So If I don’t sign it, you will kidnap me?
Officer: Call it what you want, but I’m not going to arrest you. A warrant will be issued and someone from county will come find you and arrest you later.
Me: So one of your co-workers will kidnap me?
Officer: It’s not kidnapping, you broke the law, and their are consequences for breaking the law.
Me: Who is the “law”, and what harm have I brought to him or his property?
Officer: The law is not a person, its rules that the legislators write up that we as a society have to follow. I don’t have time for this, sign the ticket, or be arrested. It’s your choice!
Me: But, I thought you said I didn’t have to sign it. Now you are saying if I don’t then i’ll be kidnapped by men carrying guns. How is that choice?
Officer: You have five seconds to sign it or else I’m calling you in.
Me: If I don’t sign it, you will issue a warrant for my arrest. And once the officers attempt to kidnap me, what will happen if I defend myself against my kidnappers?
Officer: If you resist arrest you could face additional charges or potentially meet lethal corrective actions taken by the officers.
Me: So you are saying that by not having my headlights on while their is a light drizzle at 3 o clock in the afternoon, that I could be killed by agents of the state for not complying?
Officer: If you continue to resist, then possibly. But, it would only be because you are forcing us to.
Me: With all due respect sir. During this conversation, I’ve already turned on my headlights. Thank you for your concern. You have done a good deed by looking out for my safety, yet how is extorting me of my hard earned money and threatening me with violence going to solve anything?
Officer: That’s great that you turned your lights on, but I can’t just let you go. Because then no one would turn on their headlights. We have to use force in order to gain compliance.
Me: Have you ever heard of positive propaganda and self-responsibility? You can encourage a message and promote a certain behavior without using violence. And my actions have not caused any damage to any property or person, so if I do go to court, who would be the victim?
Officer: I understand where you are coming from, but the law is the law. And in your case, the “State of Tennessee” would be the victim.
Me: Will he be in court that day?
Me: The state of Tennessee. You said he was the victim. Or is it a she?
Officer: Sir! The State of Tennessee is not a person. It’s a governing body. For example, I work for the state. The state is just an organization or title. Like “Mcdonalds”.
Me: If this so called “organization” called “The state” is acting as the victim, dont I have the right to face my accusor and cross-examine the victim?
Officer: Well, the state of Tennessee is made up of citizens. And by breaking our laws, you are victimizing the people of Tennessee. And public servants such as myself, represent the people.
Me: Which people? What are their names? Their are millions upon millions of people who live within these lands. And do you have evidence that they have authorized you to represent them? Am I considered a part of “the people”. Have I victimized myself today?
Officer: Alright, I’m going to let you off with a warning. From now on, keep your headlights on when it’s raining. Drive safe.
Me: I’m not driving, I’m traveling. And thank you for your concern. Have a nice day. (In my head: Thanks for not kidnapping me or killing me)
Drives off slowly………. I notice in my rear view mirror that two other cars had been pulled over at the checkpoint. This particular checkpoint was under a bridge.
(This scenario could have easily played out differently. You CAN be killed over not wearing your seat-belt . The “law” is just an opinion with a gun. True law is natural and common sense in nature. No victim, no crime! I have no idea why the officer didn’t proceed, perhaps he thought it wasn’t worth it, or maybe he just thought he could meet his quota faster by pulling over more compliant victims. I was extremely lucky.
The truth remains. Failing to wear your seat belt can cause you death in two ways. By getting into a wreck , or by refusing to pay a traffic ticket and resisting your kidnappers attempt to lock you into their cages. The only difference is, being in a wreck is usually an accident. But, being pulled over and threatened with guns is NOT an accident. These officers choose to enforce laws that punish people for victimless actions.
The idea of arresting someone for something that “might” happen is absurd and immoral.
I salute officers who take down rapists, serial killers, robbers, vandals and those who do harm against others and their property. But, I cannot support their actions against the innocent.
It is my belief that through logic, philosophy, technology, and through understanding how a true free-market works, that monopolized government services can be ultimately rendered obsolete and replaced with privatization whereas anyone would be allowed to build roads, offer protection, ect…
It’s not a far-fetched idea. It’s just the facilitation of an age old practice called “Voluntary trade”.
