There is no such thing as a Sovereign and everyone should protect themselves from that scam by researching it and educating themselves so they don't get sucked in by the scam artists pushing it.
That list starts in 2010, but this crap goes back into the 1980's I'm sure.
I know and have known people who are constantly having trouble and complaining about cops, but they cause it themselves.
Only a fool would want to live in a society without law enforcement IMO, but it does need to be policed itself I agree.

What about when they say,"I'm conducting an investigation", when you ask to leave?
I don't keep track of what I do if it is not important, that is a waste of braincells.
This is the EXACTLY the reason why you shouldn't speak to the police.
Not only do people not pay attention to what's around them but they pay even less attention to what they SAY as well.
Your own words CAN and WILL be used against you even when you believe you have nothing to hide...even when you are completely innocent...even when you think nothing can go wrong.
(Even your quote, likely now stored in an NSA computer WILL be used against you if this is what the state needs to contradict your testimony or statement.)
This is what all these data collection centres are for. Eventually, whether you believe it or not, your own words WILL be used against you. In a country with more laws than the population of a large city, this is inevitable.
The videos on the website demonstrate this with example after example after example of why this is fallacious thinking.
SCOTUS Judge Robert Jackson is adamant on this topic and he's forgotten more about law than we will ever know.
I wish you the best of luck.

NEVER talk to any official of any sort.
Even to give a witness statement, have an attorney write it for you.
Anything you say can and WILL be used against you.
Here is another example of how to handle the police...this time at a suspicionless DUI checkpoint.
Once more...knowing your rights and excersizing them is the key to your freedom.
This gentleman obviously knows his stuff and has the cajones to stand up for them.
Notice how many times the officer and even his sergeant try to misrepresent the authority granted to them?
Notice how the encounter ended?
