The foolishness of a corporation to say they have any rights to Judges, or to put a burden upon the people and the state then becomes treason art 1 sec 27. they are at least guilty of art 3 sec 30. bribery, and or corrupt solisitation, by accepting a pay check then enforcing the municipal code.
From the federal food and drug act. to the controled substance act. violation of art 22 sec 2 and art 12 sec 22 they must forfeite their fanchishes and as vfranchises they have no right or power ovewr the people.
the legislature has dropped the ball on this one, they have no rights to burden the people with jails, fines,and to say or allow the narcotic task force, or any agency to take our property, violation of art1 sec 3,5,7,8,11,12,13,14,16,22,25,26,27,28 art 2 sec 28 subsection 1,5,6,8,9,10,12,14,17.
the legislature does not have the power to do what they have done with or with out the consent and vote of the people art 2 sec 1. they used art 1 sec 12 which was repealed in 1974 as amendment 62 in as much as it was inconsistentand repugnet to the constitution.
the police , the word says it, place our litter in can. it is in our constitution eleven even , which is eleven eleven, they can not enforce any regulations code or other wise that are in conflict with the general law (the state constitution) they violate art 11 sec13,and 14 by taking the peoples property.
the formation of a corporation is found inart 12 all sections inclusive. art 12 sec one says they are to be buisnesses, regulated, limited and restrained by law (IE incase they forgot all ready law means the freedoms ganteed by the state and national constitution)
Art 12 sec 5 the term corporation defined, has no more power then a natural person! and may be sued as any natural person. HOW COULD ANYONE GO TO WHAT THEY CALL LAW SCHOOL AND NOT READ AND STUDY THE STATE AND NATIONS CONSTITUTION? they call them selves the bar what the f@#4 is that!?
For police acdamys to be taught that it is ok to abuse to people to arrest them and take them to jail? were did this low iq ashole mentality come from religion? they are the ones who are moraly wrong.
