Sarasota detective fired for trying to secede from U.S.
SARASOTA - Last April, a veteran Sarasota Police homicide detective went to the courthouse and tried to secede from the United States of America.
The detective, Tom Laughlin, filed a convoluted document declaring himself a "sovereign citizen." The filing included a thumb print on each page and a photocopy of 21 silver pieces — the price to become a "freeman."
In doing so, Laughlin, 42, joined a small but growing group of U.S. citizens who claim they are not subject to federal law, that they no longer have to pay taxes and that their homes are their embassies.
Last week, he was fired for it.

Sounds more like they got him for lying during an IA investigation. And this whole thing is a case study in why you should thoroughly research and read everything before filing court documents tying yourself to an unknown group or radical action.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\
