If stupidity were a virtue this guy would become the first man to be declared a saint while still alive.

So-called "Sovereign Citizens" are crazy people, often unintentionally amusing and occasionally dangerous. You can see lots of YouTube videos showing them in action, typically when being pulled over for traffic violations. Many of these videoed incidents end with cops busting the car windows and forcibly arresting "sovereign citizens" who, had they simply handed over their licenses and registrations when asked, would otherwise have gotten off with just a traffic ticket, or possibly even a warning.
The video posted here shows one example of a "sovereign citizen" being bested by a cop who is well familiar with the species.
A Sovereign Citizen is described thusly:
The ideas of the "sovereign citizens" movement originate in the ideology of the Posse Comitatus, an anti-Semitic group that raged through the Midwest in the late 1970s and 1980s.
Sovereign citizens claim that they are not subject to most taxes, are not citizens of the United States (but instead are "non-resident aliens"), cannot be tried for crimes in which there is no complaining victim (zoning and professional licensing violations, for instance), and are only subject to "common law courts," a sort of people's tribunal with no lawyers.
Most refuse to obtain Social Security cards, register their vehicles, carry driver's licenses or use zip codes; many refer to UCC-107, a part of the Uniform Commercial Code, to justify their bizarre claims; and some use weird forms of punctuation between their middle and last names in all kinds of documents.
Sovereign citizens also often distinguish between so-called "14th Amendment citizens," who are subject to federal and state governments, and themselves, who are also known as "organic citizens" an ideology that causes adherents to claim that black people, who only became legal citizens when the 14th Amendment was passed after the Civil War, have far fewer rights than whites. Some of the more famous adherents of sovereign citizens ideology include Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols and members of the Montana Freemen.
Things will probably get far more interesting, as the new drug paradigm continues to develop.

Thanks NRx. Makes a good ping to all the history/science lists, so, not using the various usual ping messages.
Mike’s videos are fun and informative.
The Imaginary World of Sovereign Citizens

This is a great one of a smug little brat getting her education in the real world.
Darn it. I blew it again.
Just skip to the end and watch the segment where the veteran cop is basically daring him to drive off the parking lot.
I wish the video continued...
They generally have horrible driving records, which seems to necessitate they being a sovereign citizen. “I will not obey the law therefore I pretend they don’t apply to me”. I have a cousin who was an SC until CA legalized weed.
They are like the people who believe they don’t have to pay income tax. They really just want to keep the money. When jail time becomes a reality, they admit it was just a goof.
“So-called “Sovereign Citizens” are crazy people, often unintentionally amusing and occasionally dangerous.”
Yep. I had one of these characters in my neighborhood back in the ‘80s. I think that the sovereign citizen bumper stickers on his unlicensed car was his undoing.
As you say, amusing for the most part, but some cross over into dangerous.
Wow, the perp's a dumbass, in addition to the total line of BS he was spouting.
The earth is actually an oblate spheroid.
Proof that the world is not flat is that cats would have pushed everything off the edge by now if it was.
