Judge responds to "Sovereign Citizen" argument - with cattle prod

Okay, it wasn't a cattle prod. They call it a "stun belt." Same effect. If the judge doesn't like what you're saying, he orders the sheriff to "Use it."


The judge found the defendant's "Sovereign Citizen" arguments really, really, REALLY annoying. So he decided to torture him?

Here's the full story.

The case cited REVERSE in NYS.... get it correct DP...

NY did not ultimately uphold the conviction... Defendant was convicted of second degree murder, and the Appellate Division affirmed, with two Justices dissenting (53 AD3d 46 [2008]). An Appellate Division Justice granted leave to appeal, and we now reverse. Accordingly, the order of the Appellate Division should be reversed and a new trial ordered. It did not prove use full to the state here in NY. In this case, they charged the guy with Murder 1, convicted of Murder 2, overturned, they plead to Manslaughter 1, he gets out in 2017, from a 2009 arrest. 8 years for a body, so it backfired on the prosecutor.

Get it right yourself.

That cited (Buchanan) case is a different case which should have set a precedent against the use of stun belts -- but clearly has NOT. The reversed decision in that 2009 case held that there must be a reason for the use of a stun belt -- the court cannot order every defendant to wear one, indiscriminately. Buchanan got a new trial because of the reversal.

The case of the Sovereign Citizen Delvon King is a recent (2014) one, and the judge's actual USE of the electric shock to silence and torture the defendant is not a matter which was discussed in the 2009 case at all.

Thanks for sharing

This one will be hard to forget. Here's a story that goes back at least 2000 years:

Acts 23:1 And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.
2 And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth.
3 Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite thee, thou whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law?
4 And they that stood by said, Revilest thou God's high priest?
5 Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.

I think this is the law he was talking about:

Deuteronomy 25:1 If there be a controversy between men, and they come unto judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.
2 And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be beaten, that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number.
3 Forty stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest, if he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy brother should seem vile unto thee.

King James Translation


Hear, O Israel: YHUH our God YHUH one. And thou shalt love YHUH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Sadistic low-lifes

They will get theirs; consequences happen.

This motivates me more towards putting energy into oathbreakers.co, which I purchased a couple weeks ago. If anyone would like to assist I'd appreciate it, even with just a pointer to Wordpress installation etc.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

This situation reminds me of

This situation reminds me of a classic laboratory experiment with rats. The rat's cage has two levers in it. One lever produces food, the other, an electric shock. The rat quickly learns which lever is which and avoids the shock-producing lever, while using the lever that produces food.

These stun belts are not only gaining popularity in America's courtrooms, but in our industrialized prisons as well. In my opinion, they are nothing more than remote control torture devices. Human beings being tortured like lab rats.

Once they cuff you ....

it's 99% over.

Let me see If I have this right the state prosecutes you for some violation of some sort and the judge is paid by the state to be impartial ?

That dog won't hunt.

Worse than that.

Judges are NOT paid to be impartial. They are paid by the state to see that the laws made by and for the state are complied with. Most of those laws are designed to keep "justice" from happening.

That dog will hunt. What it hunts is slaves who don't do as they are told, by their owner, the government.

nailed it

took the word right out of my mouth.

Truth is not always Fact.

There is no such thing as a "sovereign citizen". This idea that there is some type of congealed movement is erroneous. Both words are defined separately in every law dictionary ever written and do not belong together, ever. The idea is based on collectivism and does a true disservice to those individuals who successfully defend themselves in the court system. The article is poorly written trash designed to stifle dissent and shamefully dishonest.

The cheese stands alone. The proof is in the pudding.

The one sided war

Tyrants levying war on peaceful people trying to uphold the protections of law.

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

Replace the shock device with a full punch to the face

in open court, in front of the jury, and still very few people would care. There is complete and utter apathy from too many people.

At least when China has a show trial

you know the defendant is cooperating under coercion. This is a deceit to the jury if these devises are used to shut people up. When these are used to control a violent defendant, it's a deceit to the jury still because this is someone who would be otherwise visibly restrained and it is then a deceit in favor of the defendant.

A shut-you-up use of a shock devise is a formula for show trials with the coerced cooperation of the defendant.

Defend Liberty!
