(An Open Letter to Peace Officers)


Tinsley Grey Sammons


The more corrupt the State, the more numerous the laws. —Cornelius Tacitus (c. 55-117 A.D.)


The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the state. —Tinsley Grey Sammons (1936 —)


Unfortunately, few Americans know enough to acknowledge that the Declaration of Independence is America’s primary judicial source. It is the philosophical bedrock upon which America’s Constitution should stand. Any and all power that is repugnant to the principles that inspired the Unanimous Declaration are unlawful and should be eliminated. The worst of the existing unlawful power has been conferred by fraudulent employment of the Constitution’s Commerce Clause. If it can be said that the Constitution has an Achilles’ heel, it is surely the Commerce Clause. In spite of the philosophical clarity of our Constitution, subsequent judicial interpretations by politicians called judges support and perpetuate the legal fraud that is now being imposed on the Many for the financial benefit of the Few.


Since fraud and its consequences are intrinsically criminal, it is unfortunate that peace officers are called upon to participate in judicially approved crime. Compelled by legislative and judicial fraud, the peace officer must face the outraged, and sometimes enraged, victims of unjust laws—laws that are created and underwritten by career politicians, legislating lawyers, and judges. These servants of the People systematically violate their oath to defend the Constitution, which is supposed to be the fulfillment of the promise known as: The Unanimous Declaration.


More than anyone, peace officers should despise the legislating looters and judicial despots who create and underwrite unjust laws. It is the peace officers who must do the dirty work of enforcing each law for better or worse. It is cop who must be the highly visible bad guy in the public eye. It’s the cop who must sometimes put his life on the line while those responsible for the perpetuation of many unjust laws safely reap financial benefits far in excess of a policeman’s modest pay. It’s the cop and not the legislators and judges who must face his fellow Citizens with the consequences of their Cruel Utopian Folly. Where are the affluent juris doctors and sweet-talking politicians while the lowly cop patrols the killing fields?


Officer, you too are a Citizen subject to the equal protection of the laws. As such, you should carefully consider the incremental growth of the increasingly evil Judicial Industry that you now serve at the expense of ordinary working folks—folks who once trusted you to protect their unalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and all rights psychologically derived therefrom.


A peace officer’s modest income is usually much less than that of the legislators, judges and other lawyers who are the major benefactors of the unjust statutes now ruthlessly imposed on your fellow Citizens. Today, unjust laws support an enormous Judicial Extortion Racket, and it is the police who are required to make and retrieve the kills for the law-privileged parasites to financially devour. THEY prosper by sacrificing YOUR honor and self-respect.
