  • 2018 Weapons of Mass Distraction: Strategies for Countering the Paper Terrorism of Sovereign Citizens

    Free Webinar 

    Date: November 29, 2018 - 12:00 - 1:30 pm

    Training Description: Sovereign citizens and other anti-government groups affect the judicial system through a tactic known as “paper terrorism,” clogging the courts with nonsensical, voluminous filings, phony lawsuits, and false liens against public officials as a form of harassment and intimidation. This behavior is sometimes a precursor to violence. As such, this training examines legislative measures in various jurisdictions to thwart paper terrorism, particularly directed against the courts and judicial officials. An exploration of the origins of the movement’s history, tactics, violent tendencies, and ideology provides an understanding of the mindset behind this behavior, which in turn informs recommendations for prevention and deterrence.
