Domestic Terrorism The Sovereign Citizen Movement in Sarasota Fl and New York City.


FBI REPORT 9/22/2011......Domestic terrorism—Americans attacking Americans because of U.S.-based extremist ideologies—comes in many forms in our post 9/11 world. To help educate the public, we’ve previously outlined two separate domestic terror threats—eco-terrorists/animal rights extremists and lone offenders.
Today, we look at a third threat—the “sovereign citizen” extremist movement.

Sovereign citizens are anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or “sovereign” from the United States. As a result, they believe they don’t have to answer to any government authority, including courts, taxing entities, motor vehicle departments, or law enforcement


This causes all kinds of problems—and crimes. For example, many sovereign citizens don’t pay their taxes. They hold illegal courts that issue warrants for judges and police officers. They clog up the court system with frivolous lawsuits and liens against public officials to harass them. And they use fake money orders, personal checks, and the like at government agencies, banks, and businesses.



That’s just the beginning. Not every action taken in the name of the sovereign citizen ideology is a crime, but the list of illegal actions committed by these groups, cells, and individuals is extensive (and puts them squarely on our radar). In addition to the above, sovereign citizens:
Commit murder and physical assault;
■ Threaten judges, law enforcement professionals, and government personnel
■ Impersonate police officers and diplomats;
■ Use fake currency, passports, license plates, and driver’s licenses; and
Engineer various white-collar scams, including mortgage fraud and so-called “redemption” schemes.

Sovereign citizens are often confused with extremists from the militia movement. But while sovereign citizens sometimes use or buy illegal weapons, guns are secondary to their anti-government, anti-tax beliefs. On the other hand, guns and paramilitary training are paramount to militia groups. During the past year, we’ve had a number of investigative successes involving sovereign citizens. A few recent cases.
In Sacramento, two sovereign citizens were convicted of running a fraudulent insurance scheme. Operating outside state insurance regulatory guidelines, the men set up their own company and sold “lifetime memberships” to customers, promising to pay any accident claims against their “members.” The company collected millions of dollars, but paid out very few claims. More


■ In Kansas City, three sovereign citizens were convicted of taking part in a conspiracy using phony diplomatic credentials. They charged customers between $450 and $2,000 for a diplomatic identification card, which would bestow upon the holder “sovereign” status—meaning they would enjoy diplomatic immunity from paying taxes and from being stopped or arrested by law enforcement. More


■ In Las Vegas, four men affiliated with the sovereign citizen movement were arrested by the Nevada Joint Terrorism Task Force on federal money laundering, tax evasion, and weapons charges. The investigation involved an undercover operation, with two of the suspects allegedly laundering more than a million dollars from what they believed was a bank fraud scheme.


 

SARASOTA FL; Link to sovereign citizen movement costly for Sarasota police officer. SARASOTA — Last spring a respected detective for this city's police department went to the local courthouse and did something stupid. At the time, Tom Laughlin, his photo above, a twice-married 41-year-old father of four, was worried about the unstable economy. He found unsettling politicians' talk about cutting the pensions of public employees, and he didn't like President Barack Obama's health care plan. He had some vague notion of wanting to get back to this country's "roots."


Following the advice of his older brother, he filed a set of strange documents, declaring himself "a flesh and blood, living, breathing, biological man," and an "American National Sovereign." The documents seemed to say he was no longer a citizen and didn't have to follow any laws. "I, one Thomas Michael Laughlin Senior, Free man ... " 


He was a government employee proclaiming an antigovernment ideology. He was an enforcer of laws who had affiliated with people who break them. He was trained to spot bunk but in this instance had not. He was fired, and this month, his appeal failed. The unraveling was complete.  Laughlin in 1998 got suspended for five days for hitting in the head a drunk, handcuffed inmate who spit on him. He got suspended three years later for two days for fighting with a fellow officer.


His bosses called him in for a "counseling session." He told them that he filed the original documents "at the urging of his brother" and that he was "in the process of terminating his application." The department opened an investigation in internal affairs.

Laughlin's colleagues had a lot to say about all this. His views, they told the IA investigators, were "wacky," "very asinine" and "absolutely ridiculous." "I think our concern," Detective Patrick Robinson said, "was whether or not, you know, Tom was, I guess, stupid enough to post this thing." "How," Detective Charles Riffe asked, "can you be affiliated with this organization but yet be a police officer?"

U.S. Appeals Court throws out 17-year sentence for "Dirty Bomber" Jose Padilla as too lenient, Padilla aka Abdullah Al Muhajir was gang member of Maniac Latin Disciples.


The U.S. Appeals Court found that Padilla's original sentence of 17 years did not take into account his training in an Al-Qaeda camp. The defense is making all the allegations it can think of including that Jose Padilla, his photo above, was drugged with LSD while in custody and may attempt to take the case all the way to the Supreme Court. "Court says Padilla terror sentence was too lenient," by Curt Anderson for the Associated Press, September 19, 2011.

MIAMI (AP) — The 17-year prison sentence imposed on convicted terrorism plotter Jose Padilla is far too lenient for someone who trained to kill at an al-Qaida camp and also has a long, violent criminal history, a federal appeals court ruled Monday as it threw out the sentence.


A divided three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new sentencing hearing for Padilla, a U.S. citizen and Muslim convert convicted in 2007 along with two co-conspirators of several terrorism-related charges. Padilla, 40, was held for more than three years without charge as an enemy combatant before he was added to the Miami terror support case.

The ruling affirmed the convictions of Padilla, Adham Hassoun and Kifah Jayyousi on terrorism support and conspiracy charges. The sentences of Hassoun and Jayyousi — more than 15 years and more than 12 years, respectively — were also upheld.


Federal prosecutors objected in 2008 to Padilla's sentence and the appeals panel's majority agreed that U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke, who presided over the four-month trial, made several errors in essentially discounting his sentence by 12 years. Among the mistakes, the appeals court found, was not taking into account Jose Padilla's training at the al-Qaida camp in Afghanistan.

U.S. law enforcement officials said that Abdullah Al Muhajir, 40, who officials say changed his name from Jose Padilla after adopting a radical brand of Islam while jailed in Florida, was believed to have been on a scouting mission for possible targets when he was arrested 05/08/2002  in Chicago. Jose Padilla was born in Brooklyn NY he later moved to Chicago, Illinois, where he joined the Maniac Latin Disciples street gang.

The judges also noted Padilla's 17 prior arrests, including involvement in a deadly fight as a juvenile, and ruled it was wrong for Cooke to use as a reference point several other terrorism cases in which defendants got relatively light sentences. The appeals panel also found error in Cooke's decision to reduce Padilla's sentence to account for his three-plus years at a South Carolina military brig as an enemy combatant.


"Although some downward variance is allowed in this circumstance, the district court abused its discretion," said the ruling written by the 11th Circuit Chief Judge Joel F. Dubina, who was joined by Circuit Judge William H. Pryor.


Dissenting was Circuit Judge Rosemary Barkett, who found some problems with an FBI agent's testimony during trial and said that Padilla was not informed of his Miranda rights when he was arrested at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport in 2002. Padilla was initially suspected of plotting to detonate a radioactive "dirty bomb" in the U.S., Al-Qaeda still does.......................

FBI covering up Sarasota Florida-based Saudi family's link to 9/11 jihad plot just like they did in San Diego CA.


Name and vehicle information for hijackers Ziad Jarrah and Mohamed Atta “fit that of drivers and cars entering Prestancia on their way to visit” the Saudis al-Hijji family Sarasota home.

The al-Hijji family abruptly fled the country shortly before 9/11, "leaving behind three vehicles, food in the refrigerator and toys in the swimming pool." Mohammed Atta may have visited their home. The FBI insists they had nothing to do with the 9/11 jihad plot, and has been extremely reticent about sharing information about their investigation.

ST PETE TIMES Sept. 16th, 2011….FBI disputes story tying Sarasota Saudi couple to 9/11 hijackers. The FBI said Thursday that it had interviewed members of a Saudi Arabian family that left Sarasota shortly before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and found no evidence they were connected to the hijackers or the terror plot.In what he called a statement “to correct the public record,” Steven Ibison, special agent in charge of the Tampa office, took issue with a recent story that claimed the FBI found “troubling ties” between the hijackers and the al-Hijji family, the residents of a home in a gated Sarasota community. 

FBI double cover up in San Diego CA and Sarasota FL of Saudi support network and Al-Qaeda linked Imam’s that helped the 9/11 Hijackers. Al-Qaeda Imam Anwar al-Awlaki directly linked to Khalid Al-Midhar and Nawaf Al-Hazmi in San Diego. Al-Qaeda linked Imam Muneer Arafat shows up in Sarasota in 2000 just priorto 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta and his pals.  Al Qaeda in Yemen Headed Up by Anwar al-Awlaki Who Linked to Ziyad Khaleel in Orlando and Muneer Arafat in Sarasota prior to 9/11/2001.

KPBS NEWS, Sept. 7th, 2011…Questions Linger Over San Diego 9/11 Hijackers’ Ties to Saudi Government, but FBI says no link, oh really. The decision to send hijackers Khalid Al-Midhar and Nawaf Al-Hazmi to San Diego was supposedly made in Karachi, Pakistan by the 9/11 architects, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.  Al-Hazmi and Al-Midhar arrived here in February of 2000.
