Sovereign attempts to intimidate LEO

Temple police chief reports threats from 'sovereign citizen'
"It's a mess. It's a nightmare," Timothy Shaw, chief of the Temple Police Department in Carroll County, said about his ordeal that started when one of his officers cited a man for driving without a seat belt in November.
Soon, Shaw received a letter from the man demanding nearly $800,000, alleging police brutality.

Shaw said he told the man to take any complaints to the Sheriff's Office, to avoid bias. The chief said he never touched the man and was cleared of wrongdoing by an internal investigation, but the letters kept coming, and the third letter shocked him.

"I received Mapquest driving directions that he had pulled up, from his personal residence to my personal residence. Also his personal residence to my mother and father's personal residence in Florida," Shaw said.

...and local LEO's don't need training on how to deal with them.
