Only goverment can treat customers this way and stay in business; because their business runs at the point of gun.
In a way this video is a test to see who is awake and who is not. The slaves will watch this video and blame me despite my calm behavior and reasonable requests. To them our duty is always blind complacence. The awake will understand the words coming out of my mouth and see that their local courthouse is a den of criminal activity; the largest enclave on crime, abuse, trafficking and robbery in your community.
In Washington the people passed a law that said we were not to be charged more than $30 for the tags that should not exist in the first place. Our goverment even ignored that command and Laurie helps enforce that violation. She’s been here for years and she’s passive aggressive nice, so long as you don’t question her.
Her hostility was immediate, she knew me. But when I casually mentioned that I was being extorted she lost it. People that rob others for a living should always be reminded of the nature of the business they are in. The real problem was not that,, it was that Laurie hates me. He buddies in this building have illegal detained, illegally searched and even assaulted me for asking questions. I’ll add a few of those videos below. It’s not that I cause problems that is the problem, its I stand up to problems.
I will be accused of being rude, disruptive or talking to the wrong person. All of these things are so clearly false to anyone who has seen the video that I won’t not even make a defense for that. We have to speak to the foot solder of tyranny. We have to remind them who they have become. More importantly we have to make conversations that show people that it’s OK to speak up themselves.
I was charged 13 fees. I was told about 4 of them. They are intentionally withholding these charges from their victims.
We the people passed a law that tags could not be more than $30. So the cronies of Washington State did this.
In any business asking for money you have the right to see an itemized list of your charges, not to have them halfway rattled on in grumpy tones by the angry lady at the counter. There is a real need for me to review every item as they often add extra fees and even fees that you have have to opt out in. The final item list reveals why they were hiding it. By saying their computer has no way to show the list, they prevent customer from knowing the fees until AFTER payment.
Some will say I failed because I pay the fees and licensing at all. They claim that driving is a right. That part is correct. But choosing that hill to die on makes it so we cannot effectively defend those in greatest peril. Thing is I’m not fighting for myself and my wallet. I understand and agree with the sentiment of refusing permits and have refused many myself. Just weigh the scales. Imagine if the hero’s who recused families from the blade of the guillotine or who sneaked victims of the Holocaust out of Germany has been focusing entirely on refusing to carry papers. It was not that they supported such tyranny, but they had bigger battles.
The vehicle permit is lawless; but it’s battle that should have occurred 50 years ago. Today we have even worse tyranny’s that take priority. We have people dying and being locked in concentration camps. The ability to travel thru occupied America to those in need without giving tyrants easy means to arrest and impound us is more important. I often see the battle over drivers licenses become battle of ego and self for those fighting it, rather than a battle over the freedom of those be hauled away beside us. A man can fight only few battles at once, he must choose carefully.
I did not go into the courthouse for a video. The arrogant people that work there created this story because they believe they are above you. So I went outside and recorded my thoughts to share why it’s important that we all stand up and use our voice on the little things. Setup, conflict created by tyrants, resolution created by us.
What if John Adams and General Washington had listened to those who said that if he did not like the British rule he should leave the colonies? Only we can make the abuse of goverment shameful, only we can show people it’s OK to stand up, only we can show principle and boldness but our example.
The place of change is not in lawless courts or at politicians desks but in the heart and looking in the eyes of enforcers and collectors. Only when the minions of tyranny are ashamed, when it’s not worth the burden anymore, only then will they refuse to bear it up and let it crumble into liberty.
Sometimes you need to get out there and do some classical activism.
That happened to me on Friday and what resulted is important. Now apparently the old chief was let go for involved dealing drugs or something. Now one of the most petulant cops I’ve ever dealt with is chief and I decided it was time to have a talk with his new officers about breaking the law.
If you have not seen that first encounter with the now chief, watch it here.
We all need to get out and stand up. We need to have the courage to call out the smallest of abuses in order to restore liberty and set the prisoners free. — Gav
Soap Lake Officers Abandon Posts to Patrol Elsewhere!
Soap Lake WA is a town known for police who are bored and love to harass people for petty infractions. Now they are cranking it up as officers regularly abandon their posts so they can go play in other towns. I frequently see their vehicles heading out of town and during business hours the department is often abandoned, the full time chief Glenn Quantz nowhere to be found.
Soap Lake is notorious even among government agencies. They don’t follow the laws, they ignore rules of evidence and they love to harass and collect. Of course the Grant County Sheriff is not going to do anything about that. He prefers not to cross the blue line, as we found out in this video. This tiny town near my work is the same place officer Cox left me alone with his thug friends after I challenged him on his unmarked car, which was later marked.
It’s IMPORTANT to understand that this is NOT about this one stop. At very least this officer was outside the intent of the law. But more than that, this department continually violates this law. NOT just at this stop. This was just an opportunity to address the situation. Note when he says they have an agreement with County. The document shown in the video is from County stating there is NO such agreement. You see the conversion is not about one stop, it’s about the principles of law and the disrespect our servants have for it.
Ask yourself. Do you want police that respect law and people. Or police who are constantly looking for loopholes so they can do, NOT what the law intends, but what it was intended to prevent.
Frequently these officers leave jurisdiction to write tickets. With a few exceptions, their actions are a violation of 10.93.070 in the State of Washington. But generally police and government colleagues consider each other above the law. The Sheriff does nothing and Grant County judges uphold the citations they write even when those citations are illegal. Most don’t realize how bad it has become, until their family get’s abused.

There’s been many reports about Soap Lake officers operating outside jurisdiction and worse. I myself see them leaving their small town and driving by on the highway. I’ve heard reports of officer Cox pulling folks over an hour away. If you go to the station during business hours, often no one is on staff. Often no officers ate even on the streets of the tiny town and the chief is nowhere to be found, despite the fact that he’s on the payroll.
We’re dealing with people that think they are above the law. So when I saw this stop about a mile from Soap Lake I pulled over to investigate. A new Soap Lake officer was engaged in a stop and after determining that no serious risk was taking place for the officer, I stepped in and had a conversation. We debated a bit about the merits of the stop and I attempted to explain why the officer was in in violation. But more important, the bigger issued of constant violations.
But it takes a twist. This officer is new and not fully brainwashed into the bully culture that American police training is designed to create. So a cordial conversation ensues as I try to get the officer to understand his Constitutional role and his duty to justice. Will he learn? The cards are against him; but we had a good conversion on the nature of law and the role of government right there on the side of the highway.
We keep standing on principle for law and liberty. We keep speaking truth and keep reminding America that until we open our eyes and repent, liberty cannot be restored.
Update 12/11/15 — Soap Lake Police just arrested a man by the Burger King on Stratford in Moses Lake. — 25 MILES from their jurisdiction! Thanks to Neil for real time updates.
I called in and Sgt. Sainsbury of the Grant County Sheriff called back. He stated the officer was “allowed” to do this under authority of the Traffic Safety Commission, he admitted SLPD has no agreement with County and refused to cite any law to back that authority. I cited the “actual law” on the matter which is RCW 10.93.070 which gives no such authority.
Sainsbury in a dismissive tone replied. — “Go talk to the legislature.”
I replied — “The legislature already made the law. It’s amazing that you are out there harassing and collecting, but don’t feel the need to follow law yourself. I guess cops are above that!”
The Sargent HUNG UP!
We should note the case of State V King, Oct 2009; Washington State Supreme Court.
Writing for the majority, Justice Richard B. Sanders held that Starks lacked the authority to arrest King on Interstate 5 near La Center on April 5, 2006, because there was no interlocal agreement giving him arrest powers outside his jurisdiction nor an immediate threat to life or property.
