    Pembina tribe

    I recently was at stop with a subject who claimed to be a member of the Pembina nation. He had a phony looking id card, registration and also a cardboard plate. When we ran the information nothing came back about the plate or d.l. has anybody ever ran into these individuals? They seem to me almost like Posse Comitatus. he did not want to cooperate and said that we kidnapped him when we took him into custody.

    I believe the Pembina Band of Indians is one of those "We accept anyone who wants to be a member into our tribe" tribes that is favored by the anti-government, we-won't-pay-no-taxes, Patriot movement types.

    Google says that the Pembina nation issues plates, but that they aren't recognized: http://www.worldlicenceplates.com/usa/AI_NDLS.html

    The Pembina were never recognized by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. In current times they are extremists who are trying to make their tax-evasion sound legit and noble.

    I recently saw a "Soverign Citizen" license plate and would have loved to make the stop but was on the way to an in-progress run and couldn't divert.

    Pembina Tribe

    Note of caution concerning these folks. When dealing with them, stay on your toes, and don't take your eyes off them. There is a more than an average possibility they can represent a danger to an Officer.

    I've never specifically delt with the Pembina Tribe, but there are quite a few Sovereign Citizens in my area of Ohio and across the boader in Indiana.

    We'll cross paths with these folks every once in awhile, and PhilipCal is absolutely right...watch them closely. If they hold to the average Sovereign Citizen beliefs, they're very anti-government and will not comply with orders by officers. The more extreme of them will not hesitate to use violence against LEO's.

    They can also become a royal pain in the rear if they think that an officer or agency is "targeting" them, filing bogus liens against individual officers' properties, serving them with "subpeonas" for their kangaroo courts, and even going so far as to file false tax returns in officers' names that would result in tax audits and even freezing of assets by the IRS while they investigate what appears to be an attempt to filch on taxes.

    Thanks for the info, it will help in the future when dealing with these guys. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up when i dealt with this guy so definitely use 10-0 when dealing with them.

    May want to steer clear of 10 codes as they mean different things in different agencies. As an example, you just recommended I use a corpse when dealing with them.

    Hey that might not be a bad idea, as long as they provide the corpse....
