Posted on 04/09/2013 2:50:13 PM PDT by Nachum
This weekend, an email written by Ron Trowbridge, the undersheriff of Prowers County, Colorado, started sweeping some of the viral corners of the internet. It alleges that a Colorado State Police training encouraged law enforcement officials to look at Bible-believing Christians with intense skepticism.
At first glance, the startling allegations in the letter, which was first posted on the conservative site Red Statements, were seemingly unbelievable. But TheBlaze reached out to Trowbridge to confirm that he wrote the note and to speak further about its contents.
In sum, the undersheriff said that he, indeed, wrote it and that the version that has been published is entirely accurate to what he experienced at the training session. Here are the first two paragraphs of his note, which summarizes the problematic training in its entirety:
On April 1, 2013 I attended training in La Junta, Colorado hosted by the Colorado State Patrol (CSP). The training was from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm and covered two topics, Sovereign Citizens, and Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs. I was pretty familiar with motorcycle gangs but since we often deal with the so-called sovereign citizen groups I was interested to see what they had to say. The group consisted of police officers, deputies, and CSP troopers. There were about 20 people in attendance.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Wonder if they know what’s LITERALLY written in the Koran.
And how many muslims take it literally.
I cannot fathom any other explanation of this upside down world we are now living in.
If true, all future decisions regarding our government should be filtered through this revelation. No elected official who isn’t calling for heads for this is not to be trusted (if this is true).
Isn't that what Hussein calls himself?
If so, he doesn’t seem to take it “too seriously”.
“Kluczynski explained why he believed these groups were dangerous saying they were angry over the election of a black president. When someone in the group suggested the failing economy was probably much more to blame, Kluczynski intimated that those who are not going along with the changes in America will need to be controlled by law enforcement.”
Disturbing in the extreme. Beyond Orwellian.
Sovereign citizens may claim they are christians, but all Christians do NOT espouse the claims made by the sovereign citizens.
The sovereign citizen movement is extreme fringe, jailhouse lawyer type stuff.
But that seems confused. Sovereign citizen theory is a form of tax revolt and is closer to anarchy than traditional Christian conservatism. Somebody has muddied the waters here and it needs to be sorted what part of this is ignorance and what part malice forethought. I would not be surprised if the Southern Poverty Law Center was involved.
One officer that brings in a hidden video camera can verify this and bring DHS and possibly Obama down.
There are some Sovereigns who don’t mind shooting it up with police at very random times, such as routine traffic stops. They’re a bit like the neo Nazis and Skinheads.
Tell me that our FReepers are not okay with this.
those who believe America was founded on godly principles
Christians who take the Bible literally
fundamentalists [implied that this term applies to those people who take the Bible “too seriously]
The above three items do NOT make one a sovereign citizen.
Trying to get out of paying all taxes, having no SSN, having no insurance or car registration or driving license, trying to have house title “allodial”, are some of the hallmarks of the sovereign citizen movement.
As I said, very bad.
Sigh...what else is coming down the pike?
Oh cr@p, that’s another thing to add to the list!
Bad and DANGEROUS ....
