The law enforcement agency said followers of The Sovereign Citizens Movement have been known to carry out violent acts, including killing law enforcement officers and other public servants.
The sheriff’s office told KSAT-12 News the warning was prompted by the recent shooting death of Bexar County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Kenneth Vann.
"We have domestic terrorism right at our doorstep," said Capt. Charlie Hicks of the Bandera County Sheriff’s Office.
Hicks said while there’s no evidence Vann’s death had any links to the Sovereign Citizens, it’s the same type of crime followers are known for….
…"They’ve very serious in their beliefs, and very serious when they do go to violence," Hicks said. "They’ll kill you in a New York minute."
Hicks said while a training camp for similar anti-government groups was discovered in Kerr County in the past, there is no evidence any members are currently operating in Bandera County. But Hicks said residents should still be cautious…
That’s the standard, “same type of crime”? Humm
I don’t know anything about the Sheriff or the Sovereign Citizens but the story sure makes the Sheriff look like and idiot.
