Instead of apologizing for the comments made by his deputy, Sheriff Knezovich essentially blamed Infowars for daring to report on the issue, claiming that the quote was taken out of context while failing to explain how such a brazen statement could be taken for anything other than its face value.

"Last year I was invited to, and attended, a training seminar hosted by Sheriff Knezovich. The seminar was presented by the extremely liberal Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). I wanted to see for myself whether rumors I had heard about the SPLC were true. I observed that they demonized several well respected conservative organizations by name and one local grassroots leader in particular. This was in addition to designating organizations, like the well-known Family Research Council, as a “hate group”(Click here for article). Needless to say I was appalled.
After several discussions with Sheriff Knezovich, it was clear to me that he had no knowledge of the SPLC’s radical leftwing agenda."

Spokane, Washington Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich wanted answers. After a viral Infowars posting of one of his deputies calmly stating that the MRAP vehicle the Spokane Police Department is equipped with is intended to deal with “Constitutionalists”. His youtube video response clearly demonstrates that his logic on the matter pales in comparison to the overwhelming truth that a police state is well under way. Innocent citizens have endured an onslaught of police officers illegally arresting, beating, and exponentially killing the public as their marching orders are modified to carry out the globalist's documented agenda. This should serve as an example to future officials that want to make a bias statement regarding an American media organization exercising it’s 1st Amendment in the face of tyranny on a daily basis.The people don’t need a lecture from authority. The people ARE the authority. As it is declared in the Constitution of The United States. STATE REP SLAMS SHERIFF FOR DEFENDING CONTROVERSIAL MRAP COMMENTS -http://www.infowars.com/state-rep-sla...

"Two antigovernment “sovereign citizens” who refused to get out of their truck – only to be surrounded by SWAT teams near Spokane, Wash. – ultimately were arrested Wednesday by the only authority they truly recognize: the county sheriff.
Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich told Hatewatch today that he excused himself from an afternoon meeting at the Public Safety Building after being informed of a potentially violent standoff involving his deputies and two self-proclaimed sovereign citizens.
The truck, stopped by detectives and uniformed deputies in Otis Orchards, had invalid license plates and “was covered in sovereign citizen signs, including one that said it was a ‘noncommercial private vehicle’ and ‘no trespassing,’” The Spokesman-Review reported in Thursday’s editions.
“I know they tend to only recognize the authority of the sheriff, so I figured it was my job to go out there and help peacefully defuse this situation,” Knezovich told Hatewatch.
When he arrived on the scene, an armored personnel carrier from the sheriff’s office was parked “nose-to-nose” with the suspects’ vehicle. Knezovich, who was a SWAT team commander before being elected sheriff, approached from the safety of the armored vehicle, not knowing if the two sovereign citizens were armed.
Standing two car lengths away from the suspects’ truck, Knezovich told its occupants he was, indeed, the sheriff of Spokane County who had arrived to facilitate their peaceful arrests. From behind the opened door of the bullet-proof SWAT vehicle, Knezovich said he shouted to the two men, “I am the sheriff. Let’s not do this the hard way.”
The sheriff said he didn’t draw his own handgun as he attempted to speak with the two men but tried to convince them they wouldn’t be harmed if they peacefully surrendered. “It’s sometimes easier to talk to somebody if you’re not holding a weapon,” he said.
But nearby, several members of the sheriff’s SWAT team had their tactical weapons pointed at the suspects in case they pulled firearms or things went sour, Knezovich said. The sheriff said he sensed the passenger in the vehicle was inclined to get out, but when no movement occurred for nearly three hours, his SWAT officers cautiously approached.
“They had to cut the seatbelts, and physically pulled these two guys out of the truck, but it all happened relatively peacefully and nobody got hurt,” the sheriff told Hatewatch.
Arrested on traffic and misdemeanor charges were Michael Francis Hicks, 55, and David Ray Galland, 58, jail records show.
Hicks was booked into the Spokane County Jail on charges of failure to provide information; driving with his license suspended; and obstructing a police officer. He was also cited for modified or altered license plates. Galland was booked into jail for obstructing and failure to provide information, said Deputy Craig Chamberlin, the public information officer for the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.
Meanwhile, Knezovich continued his day with three more meetings.
The sheriff told Hatewatch he stands ready to be called out again anytime “if we get into another situation like this. I’d rather do that than have somebody get hurt.”
There have been a number of violent encounters between sovereigns and police in the United States, typically beginning with traffic stops. Sovereigns generally believe they don’t have to pay taxes or follow laws, including those requiring valid driver’s license and vehicle registrations. The worst encounter in recent years came in May 2010, when a father-son team of sovereigns murdered two West Memphis, Ark., police officers during a traffic stop. They were later killed by police in a shopping center parking lot, but only after they wounded two more officers.
A recent FBI report labeled sovereign citizens a “domestic terrorist” threat, and a particularly dangerous one for law enforcement officials. “Law enforcement and judicial officials must understand the sovereign-citizen movement, be able to identify indicators, and know how to protect themselves from the group’s threatening tactics,” the report said."
Between 1,000 and 3,000 showed up at Seim’s rally at the state capitol to protest passage of Initiative 594 which, among other restrictions, now requires gun owners to obtain a background check before transferring a handgun to another party. At the moment the law became effective at midnight, December 4, a You-Tube aggregator called “LaughingAtLiberals” (LAL) posted a video showing just such a transfer taking place — a Glock 22 for a fistful of dollars — without the now-requisite background check.
Seim, at his rally website, explains his real motivation:
On November 4, 2014 a piece of legislation called i594 passed in Washington State. It will make so much as handing a gun to a friend a felony. While this started here in Washington, it was funded by big out-of-state money.... We will stand for the liberty of our children. We’re not waiting for politicians, judges or lawyers. Our birthright is NOT to be touched. We gather and we will affirm that liberty….
We will buy and sell guns from whom we please, we will not submit to background checks, we will not give up our rights, WE WILL NOT Comply.
The most cited legal scholar of the 20th century, Judge Richard Posner, says the NSA should have free range to "vacuum all the trillions of bits of information that are crawling through the electronic worldwide networks." Furthermore, the only reason anyone would object, according to the judge, is because they are "just trying to conceal the disreputable parts of [their] conduct."
His rationale, like that of so many today who have lost the principled understanding of liberty, is that unless you are doing something wrong, you should not be concerned about mass surveillance by a myriad of government agencies. After all, what have you got to hide? He attempted to bolster his position by explaining how good people — people like him — have nothing to hide.
