Earning Our True Freedom by Increments-
Constantin Ochescu's Contribution
By Don Croft <email@example.com>
August 20, 2004
As you may have heard, Constantin Ochescu has been 'travelling'
freely without registering or licensing his private property (truck) or
having a driver license for the past five years in and around Las Vegas.
Lots of people do this but you won't have known that unless you're acquainted
with one of them personally, most likely. Constantin had invited my wife,
Carol, and I to go visit with him and his wife, Lilly, last spring in order
to exchange information about our respective activities. They'd built a
cloudbuster and were disabling all of the new death towers in the city and
surrounding area but wanted some extra protection, as the police had begun
following them more than usual.
The appeal contained in this document is just as much for
your benefit as it is for theirs, by the way. Are you aware that armed soldiers
in full battle dress have been seen and photographed here and there in America,
publicly enforcoing alleged laws? This is a grievous violation of our rights,
as you can tell.
I know you've seen them in the airports for the past three
years and that was the camel's nose in the tent, folks. Now they're showing
up on the streets in some communities. I think you know that there are no
terrorists threatening our nation besides the employees of the various alphabet
soup agencies who make up the Homeland Security Abomination itself. I've
been seeing black-suited federal cops for ten years here and there and I'm
sure not happy about that. Where do they stay when they're not skulking
in unlit alleyways and showing up now and then when we do our gifting expeditions?
A fishtank? A cryogenic chamber? Underground?
A photographer friend of ours who covers the Kucinich campaign
showed us his photos of military police with automatic weapons standing
in front of the entrance of the Fleet Convention Center in Boston during
the Democratic National Convention and another friend told me that she was
taking coffee and Egg McMuffins to some striking nurses near Detroit when
she was accosted by a soldier, dressed in battle gear, who pointed his rifle
in her face and ordered her to leave. Maybe you've seen this in your town
lately. I know you didn't see any of this on CNN or hear about it on NPR.
By the way, I often 'support our troops!' by publicly encouraging
them to arrest the federal government on grounds of treason. They all swore
an oath to do that, after all, whenever the Republic is dying, as it absolutely
is now. It may be too late for CPR, in fact, which may account for the smell
of cheese up close.
All they're waiting for, I sincerely believe, is to hear that
from you, too, then they'll feel confident that restraining these criminals
in Washington, DC, won't lead to anarchy and chaos. 'God's time is the best
time,' though, as the Germans say.
The clear issue here, I think, is that the federal government
has already initiated martial law without actually declaring it. They know
better than perhaps you and I that if they declare martial law they're going
to have an armed uprising on their hands which our military will not be
willing or even able to suppress. That would lead immediately to one of
two things: enforcement by millions and millions of foreign 'UN Peacekeeping
Troops,' or anarchy.
I won't accept either of those options, will you?
It looks like the Las Vegas (the Mafia's privately-owned city,
by the way, for now) judges may use the Patriot Act as an excuse to just
quietly lock Constantin up forever without ever having formally charged
him and we have an opportunity to make this case, through the internet and
chatting, into a public issue that can break the back of this treasonous
legislation and, perhaps eventually, the figurative backs of even its criminal
The bottom line is that the Las Vegas Police Department has
decided that Constantin's flagrant exercise of his and our birthright flies
in the face of their enforcement of the government's assumed ownership and
control of private property.
Did you know that the government owns your car, your house
and even you and your family and pets? Did you know that this technically
makes you chattel? The Uniform Commercial Code, which replaced common law
as the basis of our courts in 1932, is set up on the assumption that the
population of the united States of America and all private property are
collateral for the fake, valueless money that the Federal Reserve Corporation
is printing and then 'lending' to this beyond-redemption federal government.
State and local governments have no genuine autonomy any more because of
the UCC and other betrayals and this federal government has simply been
an toadying sycophant of the Crown (the City of London) for a very, very
This isn't conspiracy theory; it's clearly documented fact.
Do you believe in non-conspiracy theories, rather? This isn't a stage in
human history that favors fantasy, we should realize by now.
The elected County Sherriff is the last vestige of the rule
of law in America, so Sherriff Bill Young is the fellow I'd like you to
send your post cards, faxes, phone calls and emails to in order to encourage
him to exercise his lawful duty and rescue Constantin from captivity, which
he can do with less effort than it would take to grab a donut. No disrespect
intended, of course.
If Sherriff Young will do this, he'll be a national hero for
all people of conscience (the people who actually count in the body politic)
and will certainly be assured of being re-elected.
I know a lot of people who have spent years studying the law
and recommending very wise and clever approaches for anyone who will assume
his or her birthright by exiting the voluntary income tax scheme, gaining
true titles for their private property (a 'certificate of title' simply
indicates that the Fed is generously letting you use 'their' farm, business,
car, house, airplane, RV, yacht, etc.) travel without licenses and registration,
etc., but many sovereignty practitioners are now being quietly rounded up
by local, state, county and federal cops around the US, in spite of their
having successfully tapdanced in front of judges and set free, time and
again, without charges whenever they were abducted by benighted police.
The true nature of the Sovereignty Movement is rather better
exemplified, I believe, by our courageous friend, Constantin, whose approach
now is to simply refuse to sign any documents or voluntarily appear before
a judge. He went through all of the legal hoops and performed all of the
tricks of the trade to the courts' satisfaction, years ago, but as you can
see the cops simply didn't care about that and have gotten too bold lately.
Arresting Officer Kyprios will soon find that this isn't even nearly over
for her, by the way, and we need to make an example of her, rather than
let her make an example of Constantin. I can tell you that I've never encountered
a more arrogant and openly aggressive person than her. I had the distinct
feeling that she was looking for an excuse to arrest even me ;-). Everyone
who knows me can tell you that I'm as gentle as a baby.
In this wonderful, potent, emerging age, we're all finding
that the issue of accountability is coming up more and more in our personal
lives. This is one of the inescapable aspects of gaining our freedom and
I actually believe that personal freedom and responsibility is being sort
of forced on us now by the true Powers That Be, whose handpuppets, the alleged
powers that be, sometimes appear to be getting the upper hand, even today.
Our clear choice, I think, is to go with the flow and to act more and more
from our consciences rather than to attempt to live in denial and be hoisted
on our own petards due to our own recalcitrance. Some choice, eh?
I'm ashamed to tell that many of the sovereignty wonks who
email to tell me all about how this could have been expedited successfully
seem to blame Constantin for not trying one favorite legal trick or another
but of course none of them are in jail and most of them have never been
to jail for their convictions (so to speak ;-) or alleged convictions.
The only reason I never attempted to travel as Constantin's
does is that I didn't want to spend years beforehand, like he did, studying
arcane legal documents, abstruse historical protocols and, of course the
pre-1921 editions of Black's Law Dictionary in order to do what nature intended,
which is to travel without restrictions as long as I wasn't breaking any
genuine laws in the process.
I don't know about you, but Constantin's present sacrifice
on his own and, ultimately, humanity's behalf has rather given me more hope,
instead of less, that we can all exercise this right pretty soon.
Lately, I'm viewing the serried ranks of furtive Sovereignty
Bo Jangles with a jaundiced eye. I'm now a lot closer to my goal because
I know that this can probably be done boldly and simply, instead. I started
toward this goal 8 years ago when I told the IRS, in a certified letter,
to take their SSN and put it where the sun doesn't shine. I stopped volunteering
to pay those unlawful fedral taxes and silly licenses and bonds some years
before that when I had started my own sign painting business.
Since you and I are now fully accountable for our words, deeds,
and thoughts, why not also hold Sherriff Bill Young accountable, too, and
then, by extension (once Constantin can perform the proper court actions
as a free man again) Arresting Officer Kyprios, the few guards in the jail
who have been extorting him, the surviving judges who have been trying unofficially
to consign him to a mental hospital for the past several days, and anyone
else since his abduction on August 5th who, in an official capacity, has
violated any of his birthrights.
Accountability is always a good thing when it's been genuinely
applied to government officials. The dirty ones are then openly seen as
criminals and the borderline dirty ones likely clean up their acts out of
fear of retribution.
In terms of unlawful authority, on a scale of one to ten,
the Las Vegas Police Department probably rated a nine compared to the rest
of the nation for unlawful seizures of property, unlawful deaths, unlawful
arrests, etc., and they have been trying very, very hard in recent years
to undo this image since they are, after all, the police in 'America's Playground,'
and we may look at Officer Kyprios' ill advised abduction of Constantin
as simply a step backward in an altogether forward movement toward institutional
integrity, perhaps. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt.
I'm not at all advocating that the people of Las Vegas should
stand together and put down this institution; rather that Officer Kyprios
should be properly punished for abducting Constantin and that the rest who
are still willfully involved in his unlawful incarceration, including the
judges, should also be made to pay for their crimes in an appropriate way.
Note that I'm not calling any of them Mafiosi ;-)
One of the many guards who are kind to Constantin asked him
not to sue him when he gets released, by the way. Constantin's a gregarious,
essentially peaceful and very witty fellow, after all, and obviously not
a lawbreaker. Genuine cops can tell a criminal from a non-criminal at a
glance, of course. Ask our good friend, Police Chief Billie.
I believe that the justice rests on two supports: reward and
retribution. The proper punishment of transgressors within the police and
justice departments will reward the members of those institutions who are
virtuous and this organic process I'm advocating is no different from the
way we cure diseases in the human body, of course. The aggressive elimination
of disease-causing organisms directly results in the expansion of health
Many thousands of our happy zapper customers concur. Right,
I sell happy zappers ;-)
I can tell you that Detective Steve of the Las Vegas Police
Internal Affairs Division was quite solicitous to Carol and I when he took
our formal complaints about the way Officer Kyprios treated both of us during
and after Constantin's arrest that day and he relayed that directly to Kyprios'
supervisor that day.
Notice that I didn't mention the CIA, Homeland Security Abomination
or any other unseen hands in this case. It's not that I don't consider them
culpable; only that it was Officer Kyprios who did the deed and the judges
and guards in the Las Vegas courts and jails who are directly violating
Constantin's rights. Let's deal with the ones who are directly accountable.
We can get around to dissolving, arresting and punishing the secret police
offenders in due course. Without the overt enforcers of treasonous legislation,
the covert ones will have no cover at all, which is as nature intended for
all bipedal parasites in this emerging age of freedom from tyranny ;-)
Thanks, yet again, Ken Adachi, for putting this appeal on
www.educate-yourself.org! Thanks, also, Sherry Swinney, German Georg, Pablo
the Argentinian, Monsieur De Bellefeuille, Stan Cayer, Herr Wloka, Sue Potter,
Lilly Ochescu (of course) and all of my other extraordinary networking friends
who are sharing this appeal with the forward-seeing, very responsible members
of their extensive, international internet lists!
Here are the several avenues you can use to reach out and
touch Sherriff Young's human heart:
Telephone: 702 229-3231 (a courteous woman answers this phone
during business hours!)
Fax: 702 382-2904
Sherriff Bill Young
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
400 Stewart Avenue, Las Vegas NV
Have some fun with it! Sherriff Young's not a bad guy and
he will appreciate getting picture postcards from you and other personal
touches, I think. Be as respectful as you would be when contacting anyone
of good will, of course.
I want him to experience the effulgent happiness, cordial
determination and enthusiasm which I experience in emails from thousands
of our cohorts around the world and, by the way, this opportunity isn't
just for Americans; it's for everyone. Stopping martial law from being implemented
here will pretty much guarantee that you who live in other nations won't
ever have to deal with the overt obliteration of all human freedom, either.
Can you tell by now that the transition to a workable, entirely
unrestricted global economy (the CIA/MI6's centuries-old dope trade will
diminish to almost nothing, of course) and adequately decentralized national
governments is only a series of steps away? How about traveling around our
lovely planet without passports and visas? That sure appeals to me. Spacemen
or angels aren't going to set that up for us, nor would we want them to
because anything that's not genuinely earned has no real value for anyone
in the long run. We deserve this and we'll earn it.
What better place to demonstrate this principle in a grand
way than in Las Vegas, after all?
Now: below is the nitty-gritty info. I saved it for last because,
while it validates what I'm asking you to do, you probably already want
to do your bit to help rescue our friend from his abductors and to bring
yourself one considerable step closer to your own personal autonomy and
freedom, no matter what country you're living in.
I sent a notarized, signed copy (the notary at my county courthouse
happily did that for me) of the following documents to Sherriff Young this
afternoon by certified mail, please note. Tomorrow morning, I'm telephoning
his office to report the crime of Constantin's abduction by Officer Kyprios.
Statement of facts
1. On the 5 of August around 17:30, Las Vegas Metro Police
Officer Kypreos (6272) assisted by D Yong (8252), stopped Constantin Ochescu
and myself without a reason.
2. As soon as Constantin Ochescu got off his truck Officer
Kypreos handcuffed him without any questions, statements, and reasons whatsoever.
Officer Kypreos never told Constantin he was under arrest and never read
his rights (Miranda rights).
3. Constantin demanded to see the warrant arrest because he
was entitled to, but officer Kyprios who was hiding her badge said that
she does not have one. Constantin told officer Kyprios that it is unlawful
to be arrested without an arrest warrant. Officer Kyprios replied that she
had an electronic warrant. Constantin demanded a physical (legal document)
arrest warrant signed by a judge. Then officer Kyprios said that she doesn't
have it, the jail has it. Then officer Kyprios said: "I'll take you
to jail anyway because you don't have any driver's license and registration".
4. Constantin does not have contracts with the State of Nevada and he cannot
be forced to contract.
5. Constantin is held now in involuntary servitude, being
unlawfully incarcerated, which is against human rights as of today August
20, 2004 being kidnapped by the Metro Police.
6. Attached there is Exhibit A with law cases: MEMORANDUM

MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES
FALSE ARREST, KIDNAPING, FALSE IMPRISONMENT, ASSAULT, BATTERY and TRESPASS
1. Arrest is presumed to be false; officer has the burden
The only thing the plaintiff needs to plead and to prove is either (1) that
the defendant made an arrest or imprisonment, or (2) that the defendant
affirmatively instigated, encouraged, incited, or caused the arrest or imprisonment.
Burlington v. Josephson, 153 Fed.2d 372,276 (1946).
When the plaintiff has shown that he was arrested, imprisoned
or restrained of his liberty by the defendant, "the law presumes it
to be unlawful." People v. McGrew, 20 Pac. 92 (1888); Knight v. Baker,
133 P. 544(1926).
"The burden is upon the defendant to show that the arrest
was by authority of law." McAleer v. Good, 65 Atl. 934, 935 (1907);
Mackie v. Ambassador, 11 P.2d 6 (1932). ( emphasis added ).
"Any arrest made without a warrant, if challenged by
the defendant, is presumptively invalid...the burden is upon the state "
to justify it as authorized by statute, and as not violative of constitutional
provisions. State v. Mastrian , 171 N.W.2d 695 (1969) ; Butler v. State,
212 So.2d 577 (Miss 1968) (emphasis added ).
"As in the case of illegal arrests, the officer ... must
keep within the law at his peril." Thiede v. Scandia, 217 Minn. 231,
14 N.W.2d 400 (1944).
2. Must show warrant upon request
"He must show it to the accused, if requested to do so." Smith
v. State, 208 S.2d 747 (Miss., 1968).
"If demanded, he must produce the warrant and read it
to the accused, that he may know by what authority and for what cause he
is deprived of his liberty." State v. Shaw, 89 S.E. 322 (1916).
"An accused person, if he demands it, is entitled to
have the warrant for his arrest shown to him at the time of arrest."
42 L.R.A. 682, 51 L.R.A. 211, Crosswhite v. Barnes, 124 S.E. 242, 245 (1924).
"A special deputy is bound to show his warrant if requested
to do so, and if he omit, the party against whom the warrant is may resist
an arrest, and the warrant under such circumstances is no protection against
an action for an assault, battery and false imprisonment." Frost v.
Thomas, 24 Wendell's Rep. (N.Y.) 418, 419 (1840).
"It is doubtless the duty of an officer who executes
a warrant of arrest to state the nature and substance of the process which
gives him the authority he professes to exercise, and, if it is demanded,
to exhibit his warrant, that the party arrested may have no excuse for resistance."
Shovlon v. Com., 106 Pa. 369, 5 Am. Crim. Rep. 41 (1884)
"It was the duty of an officer who attempts to make an
arrest to exhibit the warrant if he has one." Jones v. State, 114 Ga.
79, 39 S.E. 861 (1901)
3. Warrant must be valid
A constable justifying an imprisonment under a warrant must
show that the warrant on its face is legal, and that the magistrate had
jurisdiction of the subject-matter. 51 L.R.A. 197, Poulk v. Slocum, 3 Blackfords
A warrant is regarded as insufficient and thus void if, on its face, it
fails to state facts sufficient to constitute a crime. Wharton's Crim. Proc.,
12th Ed., vol. 1, p. 152 (1974).
4. No rubber-stamp "signature"
"The United States Supreme Court ... stressed the need for 'individualized
review' to avoid the issuance of 'rubber stamp' warrants." State v.
Paulick, 277 Minn. 140, 151 N.W.2d 596 (1967).
5. False arrest is assault and battery
"An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted
to be restrained of his liberty has the same right, and only the same right,
to use force in defending himself as he would have in repelling any other
assault and battery." State v. Robinson, 72 Atl.2d 262 (1950).
"An arrest without warrant is a trespass, an unlawful
assault upon the person ... where one is about to be unlawfully deprived
of his liberty he may resist the aggressions of the offender, whether of
a private citizen or a public officer, to the extent of taking the life
of the assailant, if that be necessary to preserve his own life, or prevent
infliction upon him of some great bodily harm." State v. Gum, 69 S.E.
Every person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest ...
and, in preventing such illegal restraint of his liberty, he may use such
force as may be necessary." Columbus v. Holmes, 152 N.E.2d 306 (1958).
6. No handcuffs
"But a constable cannot justify handcuffing a prisoner
unless he has attempted to escape, or unless it be necessary in order to
prevent his doing so." 51 L.R.A. 216.
"The handcuffing was utterly unlawful." Osborn v.
Veitch 1 Foster & Fin Eng Rep 317
7. Go immediately to magistrate (no photographs, no fingerprinting)
The one arresting has "a duty to immediately seek a magistrate,"
and failure to do so "makes a case of false imprisonment." Heath
v. Boyd, 175 S.W.2d. 217 (1943); Brock v. Stimson, 108 Mass. 520 (1871).
"To detain the person arrested in custody for any purpose
other than that of taking him before a magistrate is illegal." Kominsky
v. Durand, 12 Atl.2d. 654 (1940).
"Any undue delay is unlawful and wrongful, and renders
the officer himself and all persons aiding and abetting therein wrongdoers
from the beginning." Ulvestad v. Dolphin, 278 Pac. 684 (1929).
"The taking of the plaintiff's picture before conviction
was an illegal act." Hawkins v. Kuhne, 137 NY Supp 1090, 153 App Div
"The power to arrest does not confer upon the arresting
officer the power to detain a prisoner for other purposes." Geldon
v. Finnegan, 252 N.W. 372 (1934).
"Compulsory fingerprinting before conviction is an unlawful
encroachment...[and] involves prohibited compulsory self-incrimination."
People v. Helvern, 215 N.Y. Supp. 417 (1926)
A warrant must be issued and signed (no rubber stamp) by a judge who has
It must state the facts showing jurisdiction.
It must be based upon probable cause.
It must name the offense committed.
It must contain an affidavit (under oath) by the accuser, stating facts
constituting a crime.
It must name the man/woman to be arrested, or describe him sufficiently
to identify him.
The warrant and the affidavit must be shown upon request.
The arrested man must taken immediately before a magistrate, and hold him
for no other purpose (no photographs, no fingerprinting). You are responsible
for everything that happens to the arrested man even if you relinquish custody.
Unlawful arrest is assault, battery & trespass.
There is no immunity in a false arrest case.
Good faith is not a defense.
