Kolender v. Lawson (461 U.S. 352, 1983) in which the United States Supreme Court ruled that a police officer could not arrest a citizen merely for refusing to present identification.
"An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted to be restrained of his liberty has the same right to use force in defending himself as he would in repelling any other assault and battery." (State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260).
"Each person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest. In such a case, the person attempting the arrest stands in the position of a wrongdoer and may be resisted by the use of force, as in self- defense." (State v. Mobley, 240 N.C. 476, 83 S.E. 2d 100).
"One may come to the aid of another being unlawfully arrested, just as he may where one is being assaulted, molested, raped or kidnapped. Thus it is not an offense to liberate one from the unlawful custody of an officer, even though he may have submitted to such custody, without resistance." (Adams v. State, 121 Ga. 16, 48 S.E. 910).."These principles apply as well to an officer attempting to make an arrest, who abuses his authority and transcends the bounds thereof by the use of unnecessary force and violence, as they do to a private individual who unlawfully uses such force and violence."Jones v. State, 26 Tex. App. I; Beaverts v. State, 4 Tex. App. 1 75; Skidmore v. State, 43 Tex. 93, 903.
I knew someone who was hindered from their travels, and they asked the C.O.P. (Constable on Patrol) for their probable cause. First, they will hesitate. Let’s face it, they are not used to you asking them that. They were in a shore town, during off season. The Cop said there were break-ins in peoples’ houses to steal their televisions, and that they were being done by boat. Well the person was just entering the foot of the bridge to go out of the town, nowhere near the shore line where boats would dock. They were not in a boat, or near a boat, or going in the direction of a boat. in fact they were going in the opposite direction of a boat, therefore in opposite direction to what was supposedly being investigated. Clearly they were not the object or subject of such investigation. They were able to part their way with no occurrence.
ILLEGAL SEARCH: If they ask do you mind if they search the car? -- Say NO, you cannot search without a search warrant. If you pay attention, they always ask if you mind. They know they have to get your consent. Usually people agree to the search out of fear, or from the fact that they see them as the authority. However, they are with bounds, limits, and protocols, because they are for the purpose of upholding the law, keeping the peace, protecting the citizens, and preserving the rights of the people.

Owen v. Independence, 100 S.C.T. 1398, 445 US 622“Officers of the court have no immunity, when violating a Constitutional right, from liability. For they are deemed to know the law!.Hoffsomer v. Hayes, 92 Okla 32, 227 F. 417
'The courts are not bound by an officers interpretation of the law under which he presumes to act.,
Murdock v. Penn., 319 US 105
“No state shall convert a liberty into a privilege, license it, and attach a fee to it.”
Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham, 373 US 262
“If the state converts a liberty into a privilege, the citizen can engage in the right with impunity.”
They can only monitor those who are participating in commerce. This means they have to prove first, that you are doing commerce. Going to the corner store, the market, or to visit a friend is not commerce. The license instrument comes under administrative Law, and must be identified as to who it is for. The Division Of Motor Vehicles is an Agency that works on policies and statutes that are not law, although they tell you it is Law.
"A judge ceases to sit as a judicial officer because the governing principle of administrative law provides that courts are prohibited from substituting their evidence, testimony, record, arguments, and rationale for that of the agency. Additionally, courts are prohibited from substituting their judgment for that of the agency. Courts in administrative issues are prohibited from even listening to or hearing arguments, presentation, or rational." ASIS v. US, 568 F2d 284.
You can also say to them, “With all due respect, you are breaking the Law, and I do not wish to participate in breaking the law with you." You may not be able to get the affect on the spot from a policy enforcer, (police), they will probably find a psuedo reason to give you a ticket/summons/suit. It is more and more clear, that they are the one who is breaking the Law. This is why it is imperative that you start suing or countersuing them. The ticket is a suit, so counter it. Usually they will give you a court date for the ticket/summons/suit. Now there are a few ways to do it. Send the ticket back within 3 days to the court, via certified mail, and mark in large letters, “No Plea”, on the back, which means you are not pleading to their jurisdiction. You may get a Notice that it is being referred to Superior Court, which says YOUR "not guilty plea" has been entered. So you send them a “Writ of Error” to correct them saying you put in a “not guilty plea, when you did not. This is coming from possibly an interim “Centralized Infractions Bureau”, or something like that, different in different States. When Superior Court receives it, they will send you a notification of the court date which will also reflect that you made a “not guilty plea”. So you send them a “Writ of Error” as well to correct that you have not made a Plea. Also send a “Writ of Discovery” to the Superior Court, asking for the Delegation of Authority, requesting any information you need to prepare a proer defense for yourself, inlcuding names and Bond numbers of Officers of the Court, etc. This is being done because some of the Superior Courts, are in fact not a Superior Court, they are administrative courts who have changed their name to “Superior Court” (trickery). You ask for the Delegation of Authority to determine what they can and cannot do and exactly what their jurisdiction entails. You will find that it does not include Traffic Court, as there is no such thing as Traffic Court". If any court proceeds with Traffic Court, they have no Delegation of Authority, (as it does not exist), and they are violating their Oath of Office, warring against the people, and committing treason.
US v Will, 449 US 200,216, 101 S Ct, 471, 66 LEd2nd 392, 406 (1980)
Cohens V Virginia, 19 US (6 Wheat) 264, 404, 5LEd 257 (1821)
“When a judge acts where he or she does not have jurisdiction to act, the judge is engaged in an act or acts of treason.”
.Cooper v. Aaron, 358 U.S. 1, 78 S.Ct. 1401 (1958).
“No state legislator or executive or judicial officer can war against the Constitution without violating his undertaking to support it.”
Boyd v. U.S., 116 U.S. 616
“The court is to protect against any encroachment of Constitutionally secured liberties.”
Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137
“The Constitution of these United States is the supreme law of the land. Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void of law.”
At this point, the Superior Court really wants to get rid of it. They may call you into Court, to negotiate, (because they want finance from you). They even say that they want to 'make a deal' with you as if you are on a game show. Once you are not willing to negotiate, they set up a “trial” date. Clearly this is a pseudo trial. They will not call you in to pick a jury, they will not have a jury, let alone have a jury of your peers. . In going to Trial you would demand a trial by jury of your Peers, in line with your Constitutionally secured rights.
In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.
"Ministerial officers are incompetent to receive grants of judicial power from the legislature, their acts in attempting to exercise such powers are necessarily nullities." Burns v. Sup., Ct., SF, 140 Cal. 1.
Identification: Proof of identity. The proving that a person, subject, or article before the court is the very same that he or it is alleged, charged, or reputed to be; as where a witness recognizes the prisoner as the same person whom he saw committing the crime; or where handwriting, stolen goods, counterfeit coins, etc., are recognized as the same which once passed under the observation of the person identifying them. The requirement of identification as a condition precedent to admissability is satisfied by evidence sufficient to support a finding that the matter in question is what its proponent claims.
