Assemblies of Yahweh Cult Leader Shoots Two Cops at Traffic Stop-Wearing a Fez Update: School Board Involved-Sovereign Citizens' Movement
[link to www.wbtw.com]

The Sheriff told WLTX that at approximately 1:45 PM Thursday, a traffic deputy pulled over a white sedan near the corner of Highway 441 and Spring Hill Road in Lee County, and called for backup.

Following the arrival of an additional patrol deputy, the two approached the car, and a man in the vehicle then drew a weapon and fired at the deputies, striking both.

Both deputies were wearing vests, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and were able to subdue the suspect


The cult leader has a long history with the police

Judge Martin Reidinger asked Reames to remove his fez, a tall maroon hat with no brim and a long tassel. Reames says the hat marks members of the Assemblies of Yahweh. He said he is a minister of the faith in Bishopville, S.C.

Will the group want revenge on the police? Why are they rounding up Assemblies of Yahweh members now?

Why does this fez wearing individual feel the need to open fire as soon as the cops stop him? Is he paranoid, or is something nefarious afoot?

The Assemblies of Yahweh consider themselves to be the reconstituted Apostolic Assembly that went into dormancy in 70 C.E. The sect's founder, Jacob O. Meyer (November 11, 1934 - April 9, 2010), came into contact with some Sacred Name groups and became convinced of the importance of exclusively employing the names Yahweh for God and Yahshua for Jesus.[4] Meyer rejected the Sacred Name Movement[5] and went on to found in 1969 the Assemblies of Yahweh, which promotes strict adherence to Biblical principles.[4] The organization sometimes refers to itself as "Modern Day Elijah", alluding to Malachi 4 and Mark 9:12 concerning the return of Yahweh in the "End times".

I'm not entirely clear on what a "Sovereign Citizen" is, but anything with "movement" after it sound ominous:

Authorities believe Reames may share the views of an extremist group known as the Sovereign Citizens' movement.

I'd love to know more about this guy-is he nuts, a criminal hiding behind a cult or have they been tossing drugs in his car to shut him up?

Also,why is his fez "sacred"? It was reported in that article that he was into trouble in NC for refusing to take off his fez in court because of religious reasons.

The Fez is apparently sacred to several fringe groups:


[link to www.freerepublic.com]

A representative of Bey's temple sat in court Thursday wearing a red fez with a black tassel. Rashim Barael Bey, chairman of the 18-member First Afro-Centric Temple in Atlanta, was not challenged by Howe.

"I came today to lend support to a brother falsely imprisoned because of our way of life," said Bey, who is not related to Richard Bey. Members of the Moorish Science Temple of America must cover their heads when away from home, he said.

"It is a symbol given to us by the prophet to show our obedience to God," Bey said. "It represents the crown of stars we will receive in Heaven."

The Moorish Science Temple of America, which has headquarters in Baltimore, was founded by a black man from North Carolina named Timothy Drew who believed black people were descendants of the ancient Moabites and that their homeland was Morocco, according to the Encyclopedia of American Religions. The church teaches that only Islam can unite the black man and that Moorish Americans must be united under Allah and his holy prophet.

That would make him a Jewish terrorist? damned Seeing as how the FBI says these "Sovereign Citizen" folks are terrorists.

Today, we look at a third threat—the “sovereign citizen” extremist movement. Sovereign citizens are anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or “sovereign” from the United States. As a result, they believe they don’t have to answer to any government authority, including courts, taxing entities, motor vehicle departments, or law enforcement.

A Black Jewish Terrorist Shoots two police officers in South Carolina. Wearing a Fez. Can't say that every day.

Claims made by the men during the trial are similar to arguments presented by so-called “sovereign citizens.”

“Sovereign citizens” are U.S. citizens, who reject their citizenship status and claim that the government is operating outside of its jurisdiction.

They generally do not recognize the authority of federal, state or local governments and renounce their obligation to adhere to the laws, policies or regulations created by those governments, according to the information provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Sentencing in the case is scheduled for May 14 and all three men face possible sentences of 30 years in prison and fines of $250,000 per defendant.

The investigation and convictions were pursued in furtherance of the FBI’s national strategy aimed at disrupting the criminal activity of individuals claiming to be sovereign citizens. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney T. DeWayne Pearson and John Potterfield of the Columbia office.
