There's a big difference between people who claim to be sovereign citizens and people who refuse to bend the knee to people who want to infringe on your rights.

YES! Sovereign Citizen is someone who believes the laws dont apply to them, for which these cops or whatever they are would fall under that definition, like soooo many cops in every country. 

 

Fun fact: The FBI trains police in the USA to identify people who might be or are Sovereign Citizens, basically anyone who talks about their rights or of the Constitution, and they report them to the FBI as they are considered domestic terrorist.

I can kind of understand reporting "Sovereign Citizens", but why report anyone who speaks of rights or the Constitution?

Thats just how they identify them. Ive seen many videos of police interactions where the police ask a series of questions all leading to identifying them as sovereign citizens, and it almost always starts with the people talking about their rights and of the constitution. The link to the FBI was exposed in FOIL open records request. I saw it years ago. It was an FBI memo to all police and sheriffs on guidance on how to identify and report all SC.

Ok you made it seem like they were reporting all who talked about rights or the Constitution, regardless of if it lead to them claiming to be Sovereign Citizens.

Irrespective of whether what police does here is right or wrong:

Driving through mexico and demanding people speak english in the way they did is reason enough for a good beating if you ask me.

This is Gavin Seim. He's from the west coast, Oregon or Washington. Had a youtube channel for quite a while now, maybe 8-10 years, where he would video record police interactions and challenge police roadblocks and what not. Ran for some political office(and lost). Then he got charged with some petty crime by a cop who got pissed off at him video taping, then he got charged again for trying to video record his court proceedings, then ran to Mexico seeking political asylum, which he was granted last year. I respect what he is trying to do, hold governments accountable, but yeah, its Mexico. As for the demanding of speaking English and what not, I dont see that as a problem, here in the USA cops do get interpreters for non-English speakers and no one claims racism or think its arrogant of non-English speakers asking for the police to speak in their language they know. The "cops"(Im not even sure if they are, might be military) are representatives of the Mexican government just like police in any other country are representatives of their governments, and should be held to the standards set forth in their Constitutions. 

 

These people dont look like they're fucking around and if it was me, I'd tread lightly. They are probably hestitate on given him an ass whoppin cuz they dont know who the fuck he is, and being a white dude barking orders of some kind at them probably threw them for a loop and are unsure of what to do with him. It would be interesting to see what they would do when they find out he is a Mexican national now and no longer protected by the USA government. My guess is they'd pull his ass out of his car and kick his ass.

My complaint wasn't about asking the police to speak english as such but the fashion in which they did. Learn to read.
