Video: Cop Insists Travel is a Privilege Granted by the State

Police Brutality

Back when the Constitution was drafted the founders did not explicitly include the right to travel.

Although the Articles of Confederation recognized the freedom of movement under Article 4, the founders considered this right so fundamental they felt it did not need specific enumeration in the Constitution.

So essential was the natural right of travel and freedom of movement considered, it was spelled out in Article 42 of the Magna Carta in 1215.

On numerous occasions the Supreme Court has ruled individuals have a right to travel and not be accosted by the state and its agents.

“The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit at will, but a common right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” the Court ruled in Thompson v. Smith.

  1. Nothing really changes. The only difference is who wears the hat of authority.
    But what goes around will come around in the end.
    The most feared character in American Fiction is the Combat Veteran pushed over the edge by some local goon. They are so afraid that they put them in jail and lock them away for years as insane. It happens.
    My suggestion is to agree with everything the cop says and get away from this person as fast as you can. This character has a lot of NAZI Government people backing him up.
    How did it get that way? Well, you might start with the crazy laws both parties of Congress unite and agree upon like restricting all of your rights under the constitution. Then you have the judges that allow those laws to stand. They do not even need to allow you a lawyer under current security rules put forth not once but at least twice in recent years.
    Now that is scary.
    That means that one day you or even I may just disappear off the face of the Earth, curtesy of the Congress and half a dozen secret agencies of government.
    And you do not have a right under these laws to have a lawyer defend you.
    So, I am not surprised that this cop once to restrict people’s ability to travel.
    Just like they have the right to rob you of all your cash at will by simply accusing you of having drug money.
    The Rutherford group is full of tails of violations of our Constitutional Rights and they do not always win these cases.
    You want your freedom back. Go to some other country because it isn’t going to happen here.
