Free Inhabitant – a police officer ordered a female passenger to exit a vehicle following an arrest, she tried to to inform a police officer of her status as a “free inhabitant.” The woman apparently believed that she was not required to follow U.S. laws because she doesn’t identify as an American citizen — and it didn’t go over well.
A defiant woman ended up in handcuffs and alleging “rape” after she refused to comply with the officer’s orders.
“Article 4, free inhabitant, pursuant to the Articles in Confederation, you can look it up. It’s in the United States book of codes,” the woman is heard on video lecturing the cop. “It’s your laws, you have to follow.”
The officer is seen on video calmly asking the woman to exit the vehicle so it can be towed following the arrest of the driver. He even told her she hadn’t done anything wrong — yet. She initially refused, but finally got out of the car and tried to leave.
“You’re not free to leave,” the officer is heard saying.
When the officer stopped her, the woman started screaming “rape.”
“This is rape!” she is heard shouting. The video shows the woman only getting more profane and indignant as the video goes on.
It’s unclear exactly where the video was recorded, but it’s unlikely her “free inhabitant” argument got her out of the arrest.
Clearly, she is unaware that the Articles of Confederation were superseded by the US constitution. She is also unaware that “free inhabitant” is literally referencing people who are not slaves, not some sort of protected super-class of people. She is also unaware that the Articles of Confederation are not part of US code. She is, finally, also unaware of the definition of rape.
Honestly, I kind of feel bad for people like this. Someone lied to these people like crazy and got away with their money. It’s a good scam when you think about it. Take people’s money with some bullshit pseudo-intellectual legalese, then allow these people to get arrested by the government, then profit off of it further when they get mad about the arrest. The government can’t come after you when you force the government to keep arresting your victims. I wonder if there would be a way to charge these people with illegally giving legal advice without being an attorney.
According to this University of Chicago website Article IV in verbatim is: “The better to secure and perpetuate mutual friendship and intercourse among the people of the different states in this union, the free inhabitants of each of these states, paupers, vagabonds and fugitives from justice excepted, shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of free citizens in the several states; and the people of each state shall have free ingress and regress to and from any other state, and shall enjoy therein all the privileges of trade and commerce, subject to the same duties, impositions and restrictions as the inhabitants thereof respectively, provided that such restriction shall not extend so far as to prevent the removal of property imported into any state, to any other state, of which the Owner is an inhabitant; provided also that no imposition, duties or restriction shall be laid by any state, on the property of the united states, or either of them.”.
To better understand this Article I decided to look up what a “free inhabitant” was, and according to this Official USA Census website a “free inhabitant” was simply a free person, AKA a person that was not a slave. Therefore, Article IV basically says that free inhabitants, who were not homeless (vagabonds), extremely poor so as to be on state welfare (paupers), or criminals, could travel freely between the several states and be protected in each as if they were a citizen of that state. The catch is that this protection came with a duty to follow the laws of that state (eg needing a driving licence in order to drive in California). In conclusion, Article IV’s goal was to allow the free people of the several states to move freely between the states, so as to “perpetuate mutual friendship and intercourse” (giggity).
TL;DR the girl in this video is stupid and doesn’t know what she’s saying. Video Rating: / 5
