'Sovereign citizen' opens fire over crawfish



You remember that "sovereign citizens" — who recognize no form of government — were responsible for the deaths of two West Memphis police officers in a traffic stop before they themselves died in a police shootout.

Yesterday, at Boys State, somebody asked me if I could explain the "sovereign citizen" movement. In any rational way, no, I said.

Another exhibit from Talking Points Memo: A "sovereign citizen" in Florida opened fire on a Florida seafood shop because it had run out of crawfish. Nobody died. The shooter was arrested and a number of guns were seized, along with a book, "The Sociopath Next Door."
