Could any Rumford citizen subscribe to these beliefs?

Sovereign Citizen Movement

2010 UPDATE:
On May 20, 2010, two West Memphis, Arkansas, police officers were
killed and two Crittenden County sheriff’s officers wounded in two
linked shootouts involving an anti-government sovereign citizen with
ties to Ohio and Florida.


The sovereign citizen, Jerry Kane, was a “guru” in the
movement who traveled around the country, often with his teenaged son
Joseph, holding seminars in which he would teach his anti-government
conspiracies and pseudo-legal “solutions.” Kane specialized in a set of
sovereign citizen theories called “Redemption;” he told audiences that his
theories could get them out of their mortgages.


Kane and his son were apparently returning from a seminar he advertised
for mid-May in Las Vegas when their vehicle was pulled over by West
Memphis Police Department Sergeant Brandon Paudert and Officer Bill
Evans, who were engaged in a drug interdiction exercise along the
interstate. The Kanes allegedly got out of the vehicle with firearms
and opened fire on the two officers, killing them both. They drove off.


An hour and a half later, an extensive manhunt located the
vehicle at a Wal-Mart parking lot. As police closed in on the vehicle,
a second shootout occurred. During this shootout, Crittenden County
Sheriff Dick Busby was shot in the arm and Deputy W. A. Wren received a
serious wound to the abdomen. Jerry and Joseph Kane were killed in the
return fire.


The tragic incident occurred during a rise of sovereign
citizen activity nationwide in 2009-2010. In two incidents in April and
May, a Tennessee sovereign citizen, Walter Fitzpatrick III, and a
Georgia sovereign citizen, Darren Huff, were arrested in connection
with attempts to make “citizens” arrests of various local officials in
Monroe County. In April 2010, a sovereign citizen group calling itself
Guardians of the Free Republics issued ultimatums to all 50 governors
to vacate their offices within 72 hours.

Perhaps the Pine Tree Patriots and their band of merry-makers?

Would someone who makes a comment like this:

"Who needs the cops when you got a 12 guage shotgun??? I'll never let another cop on my property again! And, I'm not kidding."
