Moor or Less: Declaring yourself "sovereign" doesn't get you out of a charge for passing bad paper

Yet another Sovereign Moor case, this one involving the Moor, a Money Order and a Mercedes-Benz.

Man guilty of trying to get Uncle Sam to pay for $62,000 car

Abdur-Rashiid Ahmad had his eye on a 2010 Mercedes-Benz E350.

An employee of Mercedes-Benz of Bloomfield Hills drew up a purchase order reflecting the total price of $62,310.54, including tax and title.

A few days later, the dealership got a curious money order for that amount — minus a penny — drawn from the U.S. Department of Treasury.
This self-stimulus plan didn't end well.
Ahmad, who told authorities that he is “sovereign” and belongs to the Moorish nation, admitted to creating the money order. He was recently convicted of uttering and publishing.
The jury thought long and hard about convicting him of the uttering and publishing charge relating to the bad check - all of 15 minutes.

Ahmad the Moor also sadly seems to lack a keen sense of timing: Man misses scheduled sentencing
A bench warrant was issued Wednesday for a man who didn’t show up to court to be sentenced for trying to buy an expensive car with a fake money order that he created.

Abdur-Rashiid Ahmad previously told authorities that he is sovereign and a member of the Moorish nation. He believes that some laws don’t apply to him.
He's about to find out how wrong he is on that count

Not content to utter a bad check and just miss his sentencing hearing for being sovereign yet stupid, the Moor compounds his mistake by suing the State Court Judge and everyone else involved in the case in Federal Court.

His claim gets dismissed almost immediately:

Reading the well-reasoned dismissal, one can see the The Federal District Court Judge, in a very judicial fashion, just declared Ahmad a Mooron.

It speaks to the inclusive nature of America that anyone can use the legal arguments of crazy crackers, no matter what their race or religion.

I wonder if he went on about the fringe on the flag?

Yep, any scam in a storm. It is pretty ironic that they're using a goofball theory that just doesn't work developed by white supremacists and twisting it to serve black supremacists.

I've seen other Moors in court make the fringe argument (I've also seen a "sovereign individual" white guy try it as well). The judges are just never impressed by that one.
