My Little "Drop in the Bucket"

Posted 7 Nov 2017 at 23:11 PM by griff

What can one person do against TPTSNB?

Only you can answer for yourself, but if you could delay the NWO for only ONE second, would it not be worth the effort? Think what millions of individual efforts could accomplish!

As mentioned in a previous thread, I have challenged authority from an early age. Please note: I have always RESPECTED authority, but will always question it where applicable.

I'm no hero and have a felony conviction (under duress, and for another post that I cannot make for another 2-1/2 years). I have others who depend upon my being free and mobile, but I'll simply cite some past (and recent) experiences that I hope will show what a difference one person can make on a local level, which can have a ripple effect on those who may not immediately recognize who and what they are up against.

As others' dependency upon my freedom & mobility become less of an issue I have taken a stand against the infringement of my alleged freedoms, and challenged authority where I feel confident others will not be affected by the ramifications thereof.

I had previously mentioned these incidents in chat but, for those not privy to that chat, here is the crux (and an update):

I have occasion to drive at night during the "wee" hours and over time during those hours, I have been involved in innumerable police road-blocks (fishing exercises) where I am "required" to stop, show my driver's license and registration, and verify my identity and "legality" to what is supposed to be my "free passage".

I now question each of these road-blocks every time I encounter them. At each one now, after immediately and politely complying with the intervening Officer's request, I ask them the following question:

"Can you please direct me to where I can find out what Federal, State, County or Local Law, Statute or Ordinance I have just complied with?"

On two of these recent occasions when I questioned the authority of these stops, I was ultimately removed from my vehicle, hand cuffed, and sat on the curb while "higher authority" was sought as to how to deal with the situation. The Junior Officers of whom I initially asked the question determined, in their "indoctrinated" minds, that I was being belligerent and deemed me a "threat".

Upon being sat down on the curb and asking upon what charge I was being detained, an Intermediate level Officer was summoned and after all protocols were complete, I asked them the same question. This succeeded in my being asked to give permission to search my (clean) vehicle.

After declining their request to search my car until I was able to contact my lawyer (which I DON'T have), the Superior Officer-In-Charge was summoned. Once we completed the same protocols, I posed the same question to the OIC, and was immediately released with sincere apologies (and a tactful redressing of the lesser Officers by the OIC), and sent happily on my way.

To date, NONE of them have been able to provide me with an answer to my question. They can't because there is NO LAWFUL REASON for them to perform these stops.

My most recent experience however, gives me the hope and strength to continue my questioning: On the latest "stop & question" session, after politely complying with the usual request, I asked the Junior Officer my "routine" question. I was delighted when he responded "No, Sir, I cannot, please wait here while I go get Sergeant [redacted]."

I said "No need, Sir, I already know the answer, all I ask is that you go find out for yourself."

He paused and looked at me very seriously (I could almost hear the gears turning in his head) and replied that he absolutely would, and waved me on through! I personally believe he was sincere in his response, and look forward to encountering this officer (if possible) again so I enquire as to what he may have found.

I do know and appreciate that not all Law Enforcement Officers are corrupt and/or ignorant of laws, so it really gives me hope that all is not lost, and that my little "drop-in-the-bucket" could help to open the eyes of those who might obfuscate in innocent ignorance.

Ultimately, whether it be going up against the "big-wigs" in government (which few can do), or finding something "simple" to address on the smallest level, we owe it to ourselves and any who follow to clear even a small path wherein our personal freedoms can thrive and be preserved.

Try it yourself and be amazed at the awakening and empowerment it affords all involved!

Side Note: Additionally, I now get "waved-through" some of these road-blocks when I and my vehicle are visually recognized by Officers who have previously stopped me!

    Ah, 9/11/12 still fresh in my mind. I get stopped at around 8:20 am on a sunny 9/01/01 type day. A bank robbery occurred the day before in the area by the Bucket List Bandit. An over-zealous cop stops me while walking to Mcds. He thinks I am the bank robber maybe because I had my bookbag and wearing cargo shorts and a Hendrix t-shirt (wearing the shirt in my photo album on LRF), lol.

    This little shit has the nerve to ask me for ID even though I asked for photos that could show me I looked like bank robbery. I refused to give ID until I saw the pictures. Two other patrol cars show up. My officer asks them if they have any pics of bank robber. They did and I did not look like robber. Even the other two policemen laughed saying I didn't look like robber.

    Didn't matter, I gave cop my ID, he ran it and I passed, lol. Yet, the little shit wanted my address and phone number. I told him no on phone number because I passed his background check.

    Off I went for coffee. Most cops are good in my area but there some younger cops who have an obvious vendetta. I will tell you my '09 Memorial Day PA trooper encounter next.

    LOL! A bank robber, eh? I'd like to hear about your Memorial Day episode too!

    In the meantime, I'll share my scariest/funniest experience with a State Trooper from back when I was young and stupid (...at least, I'm older now...):

    One day some friends of mine (all of us 17 years old, full of piss & vinegar(and stupidity)) and I decided to skip school (in Palmyra, PA., where we were born & raised) and make a run to South-of-the-Border, South Carolina via Interstate 95 to get some fireworks.

    I had the "pedal to the metal" until we got pulled over for speeding by your stereotypical, pot-bellied, "red-neck" Virginia State Police Officer (think:Jackie Gleason's "Buford T. Justice").

    We were having a grand old time until he stepped up to my open window and bellowed "Give me your driver's license and registration!"

    I got serious pretty quick, thinking I was going to be in deep kim-chee with the Police, my parents and my school, and I presented my documents expeditiously and in all somberness (my friends weren't of the same mind-set and kept carrying on in the car).

    When he returned with my documents he said, "Just what the HELL do you think you're doing going 96.4 on my f*ing highway!?!"

    I don't remember most of what he said after that as I was trying to get the other guys to shut up and get serious (they were too busy laughing about the ridiculous impossibility of achieving that "break-neck" speed in a 1975 AMC Hornet station wagon loaded with 4 passengers).

    All I knew was that I was getting my butt royally chewed just before he told me to get out of the vehicle, at which point, the most boisterous of our crowd leaned over from the rear passenger seat and asked, "Jeez, man, what do you want him to do, buy a couple of tickets to the Policeman's Ball, or what!?!".

    The Trooper drew in a slow, deep breath and then, as he authoritatively hitched up his belt, delivered his own coup de gras through gritted teeth with...and I quote...:

    "Virginia Policemen DO NOT HAVE BALLS!"

    ...My friends were practically falling out of the car with delirious laughter, hooting "Virginia Policemen don't have balls!", while I sat, clutching the steering wheel in white-knuckled fear, just knowing I was surely going to jail...

    ...You know, in cartoons when someone gets mad, how the "red" starts at the collar and slowly rises to the top of the head while steam comes out their ears?...

    For a brief moment, a look of absolute rage crossed his face as he threw my license and registration at me and exploded "Get your f*ing a**es out of my sight, and don't ever let me see you on my highway again!", and stormed back to his car as my friends continued howling (and while I found the nearest exit, turned around, and made a speed-legal dash for home, never to try that stunt again (and I never did receive a citation )).
