These are the steps that you must take to avoid getting a ticket if the cops pull you over
January 2, 2013 in Resistance
When Alex Jones recently talked about how he got a ticket for speeding, the first thing I thought was, “Alex, why the hell didn’t you follow Eddie Craig’s step by step procedure for getting out of a ticket?!?!”
For those of you who don’t know, Rule of Law Radio host Eddie Craig has appeared on Alex’s show twice in the past 14 months (once in November 2011 and then later this past August) and in both interviews he has explained steps that any non-commercial driver with no license can follow to get out of getting a transportation ticket. The August 2012 interview he conducts in the video called “What To Do When Confronted by Police” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiHdl-2GW6g&feature=g-all-u is a masterpiece which everyone should watch since America is becoming a police state.
Well folks, it just so happens that I went thru the trouble of watching all of Craig’s interviews on the Alex Jones Show and the Infowars Nightly News and I took tons of notes on the parts where he explains why non-commercial have the right to drive and the steps they must take to avoid getting a ticket if they get pulled over (so sue me, I have too much spare time on my hands.) I shall now post those notes in this article:
So you are a non-commercial driver who is driving on the road and a cop is trying to pull you over. What are you supposed to do? If you do not want to get a ticket, then follow these steps:
1.Pull your car over on private property and not the side of the road. The purpose of this is that police cannot legally tow a car unless it is obstructing public traffic or is being seized for evidence. If you have to drive a while before you can pull over on private property, then slow your car down to show you are not trying to flee and signal with your hand that you intend to pull over once you find private property.
2.Get out of your car, lock your car, and throw your keys in the car (and make sure that you have a spare key in your pocket to get back in.) The purpose of this is that by doing this you remove any possibility of having access to any weapon in the car and you also remove any viable explanation the cop may have to search your car without a warrant. Courts have ruled that cops may search a passenger side of an automobile to ensure the cop is safe from dangerous things like weapons, but this is irrelevant once you get out of the car. It is possible the cop might perceive you as a threat and shout “Get in the car!” at the instant you exit your car, so it’s best to lie face down on the ground with your arms out at your side when you exit the car to show the cop you are not a threat. If the cop still demands you get in the car, then get back in it and explain to the cop why you got out of the car when you get the chance to tell him.
3.The first thing you want to say to the cop when he approaches you is, “What is the emergency and how can I help?” The reason you ask this is because you want to make it clear that you are not presuming that you have broken any sort of law. When the cop turned his red/blue lights on he was implying that there is an emergency reason to pull you over, and he is operating under the presumption that you are engaging in the act of “transportation” since you have a license plate and/or registration stickers on your car.
4.Then you ask the cop, “Am I under arrest?” If the cop says, “No, you are in an investigative detention” then he is lying to you. Transportation codes in some jurisdictions state that when you are pulled over you are in a “warrantless arrest” and the officer can only release you from custody if you sign a promise to appear on the citation, and if you don’t sign a promise then the cop is required by law to immediately bring you before a magistrate (cops almost never obey this, but it is the law in some jurisdictions.)
5.Then you ask the cop, “Am I free to go?” If the answer to this question is different than the answer to the previous question, then there is a problem because you cannot be “under arrest” and “free to go” at the same time. The courts have ruled that whenever a reasonable person feels he is no longer free to leave of his own volition then that is a “custodial arrest.” So when you get pulled over, you definitely are under arrest.
6.Then ask the cop, “Is there a recording being made of this incident?” The cop will generally say yes, but even if there is no recording you always say the same thing next which is, “For the record, I want to tell you that I am not engaging in the commercial activity of transportation and I absolutely do not consent to being stopped for these purposes unless you can show that I violated some law other than a transportation law.” If the cop starts getting demanding and orders that you show you papers, just assert that you believe you are in a custodial arrest and the cop has not shown that you violated a non-transportation law. If the cop explodes at this point, it is probably because he is used to being obeyed. Further, if the cop wants to search you car, he must have probable cause.
So why will following these 6 steps prevent you from getting a ticket? Here are the reasons why: The widely accepted idea that driving is a privilege and not a right is a lie, and the nationwide system of licensing non-commerical drivers is a scam. In reality, driving is a right unless you are a commercial driver, and the proof of this is that courts have ruled that you have the “right to locomotion” since locomotion is a necessary attachment to the “right to liberty” which is guaranteed to all Americans in the Declaration of Independence. According to the law (and not the dictionary which is irrelevant) “transportation” is expressly defined to be a commercial activity, and this means that transportation laws do not apply to non-commercial drivers, and it also implies that law enforcement personnel do not have the authority to enforce transportation laws on non-commercial drivers. It should be noted though, that not all laws that pertain to driving are transportation laws, such as DUI laws and reckless driving laws which are specifically listed in state codes which do not apply to transportation, so the cops can still arrest you and charge you with these crimes even if you follow the previously mentioned steps. But most laws of the road that we are familiar with are transportation laws and they don’t apply to non-commercial drivers. The Supreme Court cases “Corfield v. Coryell” and “Paul v. Virginia” make the “right to locomotion” clear, as do Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 12 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (both of which were created by the United Nations). Further, the roads of America are public property since they are maintained with taxpayer money.
It should also be noted that at no time during the interrogation should you refer to your car as a “vehicle,” nor should you use the term “drive.” The reason for this is because these terms are legally defined as terms relating to commercial activity, and if you use these terms the police can use it against you in court since you give up your “right to drive” when you use these terms. And of course, you do not want to show your license to the cops or say anything which implies that you have a license because a license turns your driving rights into a privilege. By showing that you have a license you make it legal for the cop to charge you with a commercial transportation violation.
Lastly, whenever a cop pulls over a non-commercial driver for a transportation law, the cop is committing a minimum of 5 due process violations before the traffic stop ends. This is significant because a suspect does not have to address the merits of a case if there are outstanding due process violations. This also applies when they stop you at roadside checkpoints, so if you ever get pulled over at a checkpoint then make sure that you also follow the previously mentioned steps. This is not a joke, you have the right to refuse to show your license when they stop you at a checkpoint, and likewise you have the right to refuse to let the cops search your car if they stop you at a checkpoint because they violate your due process rights and your “right to locomotion” whenever they do so.
And that, my fellow infowarriors, is the notes I took while watching Craig’s interviews as well as a couple of other sources which helped me identify the cases that grant Americans the “right to movement”. Now that I have posted it here for all of you, I suggest that you all print yourselves a copy of this so that if the police pull you over you will know what to do to get out of getting a ticket. And if anyone at Infowars is reading this, I suggest you give Alex a copy of my notes here so that he can follow them whenever he gets pulled over. He didn’t follow them when he got pulled over recently, and why he didn’t is beyond me. I could imagine Eddie Craig was going nuts when he heard Alex didn’t follow these steps. And just for any of you who doubt Eddie Craig, here is a news article which shows just how brilliant he is when it comes to matters like this: http://eco2.wordpress.com/2009/11/02/rethinking-speeding-tickets-co-nacagdoches-eddie-craig/
