I am a huge fan of citizens who not only understand their rights but assert them properly.  Henceforth, Ernie Tertelgte is my new hero.

The 52 year-old Montana man was arrested for fishing without a license and appeared in court yesterday.  He proceeded to lambaste the Justice of the Peace stating, "I am the living man, protected by natural law." and therefore the court did not have the authority to charge him with a crime.

The two exchanged heated words before Mr. Tertelgte eventually got up and walked out of the courtroom.

One of the many who showed up in support of the defendant was William Wolf  who said, "It's we the people that run this and rule this country, not we the courts, not we the government, and if the people don't start standing up for themselves and for each other, we are going to continue being subjects of this government."
