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.
Some say that to stop immorality we need moral laws. In truth there is no such thing as immoral law; for only moral laws can be considered law at all. — Immoral behavior is lawless by nature; neither God, nor morals move one bit at the whim of government.
For example legislation can no more make the killing an innocent legal, than it can make it a crime to protect ones family or property and to posses the arms to do so. Such acts are not law, but lawless. Rights are not granted Constitutions or compacts. They are the birthright of all mankind. All posses the right to defend them as well as a duty to do so with honor.
Civil government exists to protect life, liberty and property; while church government defends moral law, not with force of arms but with the greater force of being a bold vocal example in society. When either body abdicates their role to the other, we earn for our apathy a tyrannical government, or a tyrannical church. Two evils that liberty can avoid.
The real question is which moral laws civil government should enforce and which should be left to churches and people to affirm by good example. The answer lies in history. — A government granted authority beyond SIMPLY protecting life, liberty and property; will without fail become a tyrant over liberty, property and morality.
Do not think my words excuse immoral behavior. Quite the contrary. Yet WE do not need to legislate social morality. WE need to follow the laws of nature and natures God as pillars of social morality. WE act moral, we defend the weak, WE seek to be principled. We leave the role of civil government to punish civil crimes alone, so that WE need not watch our door every hour for robbers.
All principled men are lesser magistrates. — No law that violates the law of God, nor that fails to preserve liberty can ever be true law. Such perverse ordinances can and should be disobeyed, for to support tyranny, is to commit treason against the King of Kings.
Approach with great caution the role of civil government, courts, punishments and power; for few crimes are greater than corruption of justice! By restraining government in this way, we protect liberty, leaving t0 the people the great task of preserving morality by action, rather than by the shirking our duty to legislators who will destroy liberty and morality.
What I speak today is uncomfortable. But I have been given a command to say it. There will be accountability. This is not simply about fires. It’s about liberty, the results of sin and about true repentance.
Are these fires a result of Mother Nature, God’s judgment. Bad forestry practices because of a corrupt government that we allowed? The first reason is certainly not the case, but the others likely are. We are receiving the consequences for our total failure to stand against evil on every front.
The USA was founded as a nation of who’s faith rested on Jesus without government forcing that on anyone. What beautiful liberty. Today it has become a nation who hates God and with countless churches that hate his truth. A lukewarm church professes Christ with false platitudes rather than principled stands. They refuse to speak out and refuse to stand boldly as did the King of liberty. They use every excuse and copout they can find to do nothing at all. I will not be counted among that number. Will you?
I am not God and as such I do not fully know his ways or his judgments. But at times like this we must examine why God will not stand with us. It goes far beyond fires. The hearts of the people have turned against him. Our minds and actions are reprobate and vile. Are lands are not burning simply because God cast sent fire from heaven. Our judgment has truth in faith and in science. From our failure to stop corrupt government who mismanaged land and abused it’s inhabitants, to our failure to trust in an all powerful savior to deliver us.
The greatest power of man cannot overcome the smallest act of God. Yet the the smallest act of God can overcome mans greatest power! — Falling rain can stop the most rampaging fire; much as true grace and the humble fall to our knees in repentance can stop the greatest of evil.
Despite what many liars say; these truths have nothing to do with government forcing Christianity on anyone. You cannot force faith and your government should never try. This is about our hearts and actions. For those Christians that would make excuses, beware. The covering for sin does not exist for those who refuse obedience to Christ. This included most of America and most of the so called church. Be not deceived. By their fruits you shall know them. Americas fruit is rotten, the church must step up and repent first, for judgment begins at the house of God.
Matthew 7:23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Many will be angry because I say these things. They will make excuses or use distractions. They will pretend that I dishonor the fallen firefighters when in fact i mourn for them. I simply speak of liberty and repentance. I am not hear to please you. Set aside your division and unite for liberty.
Until we have a fire for God, we can never have a fire for liberty. — Gav
II Chronicles 7:113-14: If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; — If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Psalm 68:6: God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

Liberty is laid waste and the courts are lost to us.
I was convicted. But the message goes on despite that and with each step standing for liberty we expose the corrupt and educate the uniformed.
Meanwhile sleeping Americans wave flags and have barbecues; pretending their communities are God’s gift to freedom. Your courts are white washed tombs filled with rot and corruption!! If you think your town is safe, go listen to what’s happening in it’s halls of justice!
East Wenatcheee, Douglas County and the surrounding areas are a great example of this rot that’s infecting America. Smiling politicians and good church going Republicans wave American flags, as liberty and righteousness is burned to the ground. It’s a case is cowardice and apathy. A mindset that makes everyone a slave and no one willing to stand up for their neighbor.
Through coercion, deception, lies and loopholes, justice no longer exists in our courtroom and liberty is no longer protected by the public servants who vowed to do just that. I could go on, but lets examine a perfect example of this in today’s video.
Lawless Government and the Slaves Who Support Them!
WARNING; STRONG LANGUAGE!
Soap Lake WA (Facebook Page) is a town of less than 2000 in corrupt Grant County. Soap Lake is often refereed to as Dope Lake by locals. It’s a town that can barley keep it’s services going, yet somehow managed to get two new patrol SUV’s. — This was actually the first time I took on illegal unmarked police cars in Washington, a conversation that went viral last Fall. Life got in the way and I’m just getting this clip posted. I did not realize how crazy it was until I went through it.
I was at the store getting a snack when I noticed what appeared to be an officer in an unmarked car talking to some young men. I’d been seen people stopped by this unmarked car and I knew it was against the law. I questioned the officer about his illegal vehicle and he ran off. I followed. Soap Lake is a small town, so he can run, but he can’t hide. After he avoids me multiple times, we finally we exchange words and he retreats to the station. Soon he returns to the car, ignoring me as I knock on the window. Finally two local punks who claim to be his friends show up to intimidate me, hurling profanities and telling me I have no business questioning him. As all this happens the officer flees the scene.
I’ve come to expect lawless government. But this clip reveals WHY they get away with it. We have not held them accountable. These young men could care less about liberty or law as long as it does not effect them. This is what we have produced in government indoctrination centers we call public school. An apathetic generation that not only does not know liberty, they do not care!
I was quite assertive here. Part of that is because I know these Soap Lake police and I know their reputation. Boldness is a powerful thing and the officer here are punks, but make sure you know where to draw the line and make sure a camera is rolling. See my tips on filming and my article about how anyone can know the law!
I had more than just a camera to protect myself; but this is a reminder that you should ALWAYS film. The goons showed up, the officer left. I don’t know what they intended, but having the camera rolling put everyone on record. Never turn off the camera.
This goes so far beyond unmarked cars! It’s about a growing disrespect which so called law enforcement has for liberty and the people they serve. It’s about restoring accountability and values to America. It’s time to get serious, repent as a nation and start standing principled for what is right; so that our children are not slaves.
So long as government acts with impunity; liberty will be trampled.
