West Memphis (Ark.) Police Chief Bob Paudert, who lost his son and another officer in a roadside gunfight with two sovereign citizens, is stepping down to educate law enforcement groups about the dangers of sovereign citizens.

Chief Paudert, who has been a law enforcement officer for 44 years, said he decided to leave his job after officers Brandon Paudert and Bill Evans were fatally shot at a traffic stop in May of 2010.

The officers had pulled over sovereign citizens Jerry and son Joseph Kane. Joe Kane ambushed the officers with an AK-47 rifle. Wildlife Officer Michael K. Neal of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission eventually stopped the two from killing more people by ramming his truck into their vehicle.

We need strong federal laws against this type of 'movement' since they are getting so very dangerous. And these strong laws need to be made public to warn them of the consequences of their actions. I can't understand why we sit by and let this type of crap fester and grow. My prayers go out for retired Chief Paudert. Enough is enough. Be safe.
