How to Enact a Citizen's Arrest

Kelly Z. Mordecai (author of "The Hidden 4th Branch") advises that all RP supporters who attend the various GOP caucuses and conventions prepare themselves to enact a CITIZENS ARREST. In comments at FB group "Watch the Vote 2012," Mordecai recommends the following:

"When beyond bad behavior occurs - like security guards get brutal with someone because of some 'lame excuse,' unlawfully detain them, etc.... Then have a witness present and issue a 'Citizens arrest' upon the security guards. In many states, if a citizen does this, the local law enforcement must take them into custody.

"You see an assault upon a Ron Paul Delegate, walk up to the Romnulan and issue 'CITIZENS ARREST.' Call 911. After issuing 'Citizens Arrest,' tell the perpetrator, 'If you resist, that is a misdemeanor. If you leave, that is another misdemeanor.' Get photos, call 911. Have a witness STUDY YOUR STATE LAW W/R TO CITIZENS ARREST."

Why won't the Oath Keepers help?

Why won't the Oath Keepers help with being body guards during these state and the national conventions?

Attention on the Oath Keepers FB Page

On June 2, 2012, Nancy Liberty from "Watch The Vote 2012" asked Oath Keepers for assistance, posting to the Oath Keepers FB page the YouTube video of Alex Helwig being assaulted by Shreveport Police at the LAGOP State Convention.

Donald W Rutledge, an Oath Keeper, wrote: "as for myself i will outreach first upon getting there i will outreach to the law enforcement first, then i will do my other job, my county sheriff said since i'm an oathkeeper, i live by it. i'm known as the oathkeeper guy here. so everyone knows it look for the guy wearing the oathkeeper black t-shirt with braces on left hand and knee brace on the right knee with one of my veterans cap. i challenge anyone who shows up at the ft.worth republican convention to wear our colors, wouldn't that be cool? a bunch of texan oathkeepers making a appearance. just saying"

Yesterday, June 8, 2012, James Lillis, another Oath Keeper, reposted the same video to the Oath Keepers FB page and wrote: "At some point... perhaps a contingency of OK's needs to be formed to act like the Patriot Guards at funerals. I say time and time again, it usually is not what you do, but process that gets violated that needs to be protected. ??

"I'm grasping here... there is a Libertyvention scheduled to take place in WI shortly... what resources are available to us in WI.?"

Please become a member of the FB Oath Keeper page and continue to bring this issue to their attention. The interest appears to be there. It simply requires repetition and followup to keep it in the forefront.

Awesome!

Thank you!

In the opinion of Judge Nap,

In the opinion of Judge Nap, the president independently choosing people to take out from his "secret list" puts him in clear violation of the Constitution...

Why can't the American people perform a citizen's arrest in this case, because the Congress sure as hell aren't doing their job!

Richard Dawkins was trying to do this with Pope Benedict, the problem is always getting close enough to enact it, having enough witnesses, and not being taken down by Secret Service agents on the adjacent roof.

All legally correct, but

All legally correct, but practically, you should be carrying your own firearms and have Ron Paul friendly cops to call or hire your own off duty security guards (which is what basically the bad guys are doing).

Remember, a citizen's arrest is only for actual crimes in progress being witnessed with real victims. You know, traditional right and wrong, not the color of law tripe you see every day. It's an extension of the Hue and Cry which has existed for hundreds of years - go look that up if you don't know what that is. It's a natural part of self defense. It's what there should be more of, with posses called by sheriffs as well, and less hired unelected police.

but

someone putting their hands on you in the ways these savages have been doing is assault (especially when they're breaking your fingers or dislocating your prosthetic hip or punching you in the back of the head and/or spine)... so there IS an actual crime with REAL victims.

Yes, so practically make sure

Yes, so practically make sure you are carrying firearms and have Ron Paul friendly cops - there are such - that you can call up, because saying "citizens arrest" doesn't make a thug with a gun stop.

You have to practically be able to defend yourself.

There is no reason you can't have your own rent a cops and buddies on call. In fact, that was discussed when this happened in Arizona as well. This is a lesson that hasn't been learned yet. Romney is obviously hiring off duty cops, and we ought to be too - bodyguards that can be trusted.

If you have 100+ delegates, and this shit is happening routinely because Romney is a two hundred million plus millionaire, it isn't that expensive to hire an off duty bodyguard or two when split between a hundred people.

Citizen's arrest of Mitt Romney would make my day
