Another attack by a “sovereign citizen?”
US News • Views: 27,759

It looks like we have another sovereign citizen trying to murder police.

***CAVEAT*** It is not yet confirmed that the links below are one and the same with this person.

A Bureau of Land Management ranger and a California highway patrolman were shot during an armed confrontation on Saturday, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Authorities identified the suspect as Brent Douglas Cole, 60, according to the Bee. The shooting took place in the Tahoe National Forest in Nevada County, Calif., which borders Nevada. The BLM ranger had called for the highway patrolman’s assistance, according to the Bee.

The injuries for the law enforcement officers were not life-threatening, the newspaper reported. Cole was shot as well and was in stable condition at a nearby hospital as of Monday.

Googling Brent Douglas Cole leads you to a load of links at kookspiracy sites like OPED News, United Truth Seekers, and what might be the suspect’s twitter feed. **NONE OF THIS IS YET CONFIRMED by authorities or media, if you share do so with disclaimers.***

All of that said, this guy appears to be three sacks of hammers full of Sovereign Citizen crazy.

And … he appears to be anti-semitic as well:

The suspect also appears to be a dyed in the wool Birther: see obamaconspiracy.org.

It’s also possible that he and a relative were served an eviction notice in Anchorage Alaska back in 2007.

UPDATE: we have media confirmation from TPM and SPLC

The Southern Poverty Law Center, in research shared with TPM on Tuesday afternoon, linked Cole to an online profile in which he described himself as “a sovereign American Citizen attempting to thwart the obvious conspiracy and subterfuges of powers inimical to the United States.”

“Sovereigns believe that they — not judges, juries, law enforcement or elected officials — get to decide which laws to obey and which to ignore, and they don’t think they should have to pay taxes,” the SPLC has written in its summary of sovereign citizen beliefs.

Someone using the name Brent Douglas Cole uploaded Google documents that were purportedly filed in his defense for the January arrest. Those documents have not been independently verified by TPM, but they carry the same case number as the firearms case.
