Sheriff, Police on High Alert After GOP Chair “Likes” Anti-Tyranny Article on Facebook

The article “When Should You Shoot A Cop” might be referred to as “the law enforcement literacy test”. Those who will not read have no advantage over those who cannot read. “When Should You Shoot A Cop” was originally posted on the website and Marlene Motley, who is a member of Kershaw County Patriots (KCP), reposted the link to KCP’s Facebook page with the caveat: “Please, Read the article before you comment.” It is a well known fact that the subject line may be all that some people will read unless that subject line grabs their attention.

Those who have read the article know that it is about resistance to tyranny. Author Larken Rose cited historical examples such as Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Hitler, and Pol Pot. The article has nothing to do with law enforcement who act in accordance with the American constitution.

Throw a rock in a pen full of pigs:
the one that squeals is the one that you hit.
An amazing thing has happened. An article about opposing tyranny was posted, WITHOUT MENTIONING ANY NAME. Some law enforcement personnel claim that it is about them. 
If one were to throw a rock into a pen full of pigs, and one of them squealed, the one that squealed, would be the one that you had hit. Why would any law enforcement officer claim that this “shoe fits”?

George Washington said:
“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light.”
The righteous do not fear the truth.
Oppression of expression is confession.

If any result is to be expected from the tactics that have been used in this event, it will be that more people will read the article.

Sheriff, Police on High Alert After GOP Chair “Likes” Anti-Tyranny Article on Facebook July 29, 2011

KERSHAW COUNTY, South Carolina — Sheriff Jim Matthews and Elgin Chief of Police, Harold Brown, have placed their officers on high alert after Kershaw County Republican Party Co-Chairman, Jeff Mattox, “Liked” an article on — a popular social-networking website.
Chief Brown said, “We take this very seriously.”
Camden Chief of Police, Joe Floyd, said that he would “reinforce” his officers’ “training” and “provide a united front along with the sheriff and chief.”



The article, entitled “When Should You Shoot A Cop,”

is an opinion piece written by Larken Rose and made a reasoned argument for resisting state-sponsored tyranny when there is no other option left. Rose cited historical examples such as: “Stalin … Lenin … Chairman Mao … Hitler … Pol Pot, or any number of other tyrants in history.”
“In an ideal world, cops would do nothing except protect people from thieves and attackers, in which case shooting a cop would never be justified,” Rose said in the article.

” was originally posted on the website and Marlene Motley, who is a member of Kershaw County Patriots (KCP), reposted the link to KCP’s Facebook page with the caveat: “Please, Read the article before you comment.”
Mattox, who is also a member of KCP, came along afterwards and clicked the “Like” button that accompanies all posts on Facebook. Mattox did not leave a comment on the article, but later said in a telephone interview with the local Chronicle-Independent newspaper, “I support [Rose’s] right to say what he’s saying. He does have some good points. Although we don’t advocate shooting cops, it does create a discussion.”
Mattox stated in an interview with WISTV 10 that he didn’t even remember clicking the “Like” button on Rose’s article.

Whether he remembers it or not, Mattox’s act of “liking” the post on KCP’s Facebook page — a page which Sheriff Matthews is apparently monitoring — caused Sheriff Matthews to be “irritated” and to characterize the post as “hateful” and “irresponsible,” even though the article itself was not written by anyone associated with KCP and Sheriff Matthews did not ask any KCP members for their opinion of the article, or their rationale for posting it.

“If Matthews had a problem with the article he could have contacted me,” said Motley, the KCP member who posted the CopBlock link. “I had thought about not posting, but felt the article made a valid point.”

Rather than speak to any KCP members, Sheriff Matthews told his officers “that there is a group in this county that is reading stuff that says it’s OK to shoot a cop… That article does suggest that, at certain times, it’s OK to shoot a cop.”

Here’s what Rose actually said about “certain times” in his article:

“To get a little perspective, try watching a documentary or two about some of the atrocities committed by [tyrannical] regimes… Pause the film when the jackboots are about to herd innocent people into cattle cars, or gun them down as they stand on the edge of a ditch, and THEN ask yourself the question, ‘When should you shoot a cop?

“I was disappointed in the reaction to the article by law enforcement,” said Motley. “Anyone who took the time to read the article would realize that, unless there was tyranny at the hands of law enforcement, the article was not advocating going about shooting police officers.”
Aware of the provocative nature of his title, “When Should You Shoot A Cop,”

Rose opened his article:
“That question, even without an answer, makes most ‘law-abiding taxpayers’ go into knee-jerk conniptions… In doing so, they also inadvertently demonstrate why so much of human history has been plagued by tyranny and oppression.”
Speaking of “knee-jerk conniptions,” the “Liking”-an-anti-tyranny-article controversy was strong enough to cause Kershaw County Republican Party Co-Chairman, Chris Oviatt, to ask Mattox to resign from the chairmanship position that they both share. And this despite the fact that Oviatt is also a member of the same patriot group, KCP, that sparked the alleged controversy in the first place.

When Mattox refused to resign voluntarily, Oviatt took matters into his own hands and began a move to eliminate Mattox’s Co-Chairman position completely, even though GOP by laws do not appear to allow it.

“We’ve always encouraged our members and officers to have their opinions, but when you talk about doing harm to somebody, that is the line, because that doesn’t represent values of the Republican Party,” Oviatt said.

In a similar vein and without any evidence, Sheriff Matthews attempted to publicly conflate KCP with a murderous anti-government extremist group called the Sovereign Citizens, which is currently under investigation by the FBI:

“I don’t know if they’re aligned with the Sovereign Citizen movement,” said Sheriff Matthews when asked about the connection to KCP by the Chronicle-Independent. “I don’t know if they all have the same membership rolls, but they certainly seem to hang together.”

Mattox categorically denied any connection to Sovereign Citizens: “We’re not affiliated with them in any way.”

Sheriff Matthews also characterized KCP as “ultra right wing … extremist” without explanation and “[wondered] what they are doing that they want to isolate themselves from any law enforcement intervention.”

Sheriff Matthews ran for office on the Republican Party ticket and regularly attended Kershaw County Republican Party meetings until after his election. He then voluntarily isolated himself from the GOP meetings, because, according to him, KCP “hijacked the meetings.”


Sheriff Matthews’ Facebook profile page. He is a member of Kershaw County Patriots.
On April 7, 2009, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a document to federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement entitled: “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”
The document divides “rightwing terrorists” into two categories: “adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.”

DHS maintains a Fusion Center in South Carolina under the auspices of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. One of the main purposes of fusion centers is to disseminate federally-generated intelligence materials to local agencies. In return, DHS collects massive amounts of information on ordinary citizens due to being allowed access to local databases.

Fusion centers have also been known to infiltrate local activist groups, as was the case with the Olympia Port Militarization Resistance, an antiwar group located in Washington state. released a document showing that domestic “Army Fusion Cells” coordinate with local law enforcement to collect information on local activists.

Sheriff Matthews’ current law enforcement position, his federal Drug Enforcement Administration background, his “hateful” and “ultra right wing … extremist” rhetoric and his monitoring of the Kershaw County Patriot group appear to be the “smoking guns” connecting him to the South Carolina Fusion Center and the types of operations that fusion centers are known to carry out against the American people?

Mattox released a statement on July 28, 2011 in which he called for the immediate resignation of Sheriff Matthews.

“Sheriff Jim Matthews has unfairly and illogically compared me to extremists and criminals. He has acted in such a manner as to portray me as a threat to the citizens of this county,” said Mattox in his statement. “Sheriff Jim Matthews has abused his office and I am demanding now … that he resign from the office of sheriff for his shameful and disgraceful efforts to destroy one solitary man on the most ridiculous pretense imaginable.”

Mattox also called for the immediate resignations of Co-Chairman Oviatt and South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly for their complicity in attacking his character and for Connelly’s silence on “the matter of the Lt. Governor.”

“If they cannot arrest me,” Mattox said, “then why do they expend so much effort to publicly malign me by using the power and prestige of their offices to, in the most outlandish and bizarre behavior I have ever witnessed, falsely accuse me of being a terrorist or worse?”

Meanwhile, in a classic case of attacking the messengers instead of the message, Larken Rose’s offer to defend his article goes unheeded:

“I would love to have a public discussion with the Sheriff who claims the article is ‘irresponsible’ and ‘hateful.’ Instead of suiting up for battle, maybe we can have a rational discussion, instead. I’d prefer an exchange of words to an exchange of bullets any day. So how about it, Mr. Sheriff?”

The sociopathic police personality: Is it a product of the “Rotten Apple” or the “Rotten Barrel?”
 The “Rotten Apple” theory states that deviant police officers are those who psychological testing fails to screen out. This concept is favored by police administrators because it offers a quick and easy solution to police deviant behavior. However, there is a growing body of literature that suggests that it is the stressful occupation that is policing that is the fertile soil from which police deviant behavior springs otherwise known as the “Rotten Barrel” theory. This article shall explore police deviant behavior from the perspective that it is the “Rotten Barrel” that leads to police deviant behavior.
What we are now seeing appears to indicate that psychological testing is being used to locate and hire sociopathic deviants rather than to screen them out. Are the people, who ought to be in prisons or mental institutions, now being given guns and badges?  Are the prisons or mental institutions now for religious, or freedom loving people?  Sociopathic deviants are the first line of enforcement in every dictatorship. If they do not have enough sociopathic deviants to enforce dictatorship they have to send them to a war zone be trained as police without concerns for civil liberties. They will come back with habits that will last a life time.





Do you remember when it was the people,

who were being arrested, who hid their faces?

Do you remember when you used to feel safer because police were present?


When police ask for permission to violate the law that governs THE POLICE they are fond of saying
“What do you have to hide?”
 An example of this would be conducting a search without a warrant, in violation of the 4th amendment.
Yet if someone makes a video of their conduct they claim some power to arrest that person.
“What do THEY have to hide?
What would happen if someone asked THE POLICE for permission to violate a law?
What would happen if that someone told them that there would be consequences if they failed to grant that permission to violate a law?

Watch our Police State with your own eyes.

The Proper Role of Law Enforcement by  Sheriff Richard Mack
What every citizen should know. What every cop should believe. “To serve and protect” – This time-honored mission statement of American law enforcement is steadily giving way in police departments all across the nation to an ethos of intimidation, military-style siege, and disdain for citizens’ rights. Richard Mack – the man who as sheriff of a rural Arizona county fought the Brady Bill gun-control law all the way to the Supreme Court and won – gives us an insider’s glimpse into the pervasive forces that are relentlessly driving America towards a police state. In almost confessional style, he recounts how he came to realize, while working as a beat cop, how wrong the all-too-common orientation of police officers is when they think of their job as being “to write tickets and arrest people.” Richard Mack tells of his personal transformation from “by-the-numbers” cop to constitution-conscious defender of citizens’ rights and freedoms. This book is a wake-up call for all law-enforcement officers. It is a must-read for every man and woman wearing a badge. If you have a friend or relative in law enforcement, make sure you get a copy into their hands. You’ll be shocked to learn just how far American law enforcement has strayed from its mission.

Video Caught On Tape: cop arrests reporter for filming traffic in Arizona… (hmmm) Beware of traveling in Arizona.
Is Arizona still a part of the United States? Or is this what is happening everywhere now?
Further info:
The “straw grabbing” contrivance is now to claim that he blocked traffic. The jack boots chose to block traffic by illegally detaining a law abiding citizen. Anderson just wanted to leave, but he was not allowed to do so.
His rights did not just appear when they advised him of them. HE ALREADY KNEW that he had the right to remain silent, and he did so.
They claimed that a DOG gave them “probable cause”, and then they claimed that “probable cause” gave them the right to search. “Probable cause” is not the right to search. “Probable cause” is the right to ASK a judge for a search warrant:
How can law enforcement uphold the law if they violate the laws to govern law enforcement?
The names of the jack booted thugs are in the video. Where are they now?
Real terrorists and smugglers (of either illegal aliens or contraband) know where these “check points” are, and take another route. The only real effect of these “check points” is to condition the American people to accepting the standard practices of tyranny, and to destroy the Bill of Rights. A law that violates the constitution has no authority as much as if it never existed.  

Why is this happening?

Watch the “training” of your police, by your federal government:

Federal government training seminar says founding fathers, Christians and homeschoolers are terrorists.
The lecturer identifies George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers as “terrorists”.
Sit in on an actual FEMA Gestapo training class.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

First they tortured him for refusing to answer questions. THEN they told him that he had the right to remain silent. How can there be a duty to answer questions if there is a right to remain silent?

Story might be on local (Phoenix) late news tonight:


Thomas Jefferson said:
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
We add this:
“The battle for liberty is never won, and is never lost.
The battle for liberty always continues.
It is never too late, and it is never soon enough, to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope.
No matter how free we are we are never safe.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back.
When the defense of liberty becomes a crime, tyranny is already in force. At that point failure to defend liberty makes slavery at certainty.” John Perna
