LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas police chief whose son was shot and killed along with another officer last year is on a mission.
West Memphis Chief Bob Paudert tours the country in his free time, reliving over and over what he calls the most tragic day of his life, to educate other law enforcement officers about anti-government extremists known as sovereign citizens.
In the year since Sgt. Brandon Paudert and Officer Bill Evans were gunned down by a 16-year-old wielding an AK-47, Paudert has reached thousands of police and sheriffs through his talks and video.
He tells them about sovereign citizens, people who live in the U.S. but declare themselves above state and federal laws and those who enforce them.
