Jefferson County will join with Clallam County to defend against a “criminal complaint” claim made by a Port Angeles woman who claims the adoption of the “proof of vaccination” mandate for indoor dining violates her constitutional rights.
The complaint is being pursued by Paris Jean Humble, a Port Angeles resident and dance instructor, and was filed in Tacoma Nov. 8 and delivered to commissioners in Jefferson and Clallam counties earlier this month.
Titled as a “First Amendment Petition for Redress of Grievances,” the complaint names Jefferson and Clallam county commissioners as defendants, as well as members of both boards of county health.
In the claim, Humble alleges her First, Fourth, Fifth, and Eighth Amendment rights have been violated.
Her 30-page filing, which includes a “Declaration of Revision” that begins with an extended quotation of the Declaration of Independence, says state, county, city, and local government public servants have established “an absolute tyranny over ‘WE THE PEOPLE.’”
The claim alleges that Jefferson and Clallam county officials have engaged in a conspiracy and have committed treason.
“I understand the matter and have first hand knowledge of the commercial damage to this/our wonderful community, and face to face testimony from my fellow citizens, reports from local newspapers, and news from social media,” the complaint says.
It alleges that “people have been denied the liberty of eating in local restaurants because they choose not to toxify their bodies with untested vaccines (in the 1950s in the U.S. white’s and colored people suffered segregation in the southern states).”
The claim also says people have lost their jobs due to the proof of vaccination mandate, adding “men and women of said community have been denied vital services, such as food and government services, because they refused to show VAX ID cards.”
It also alleges that people’s religious freedom has been denied because of imposed mandates that include Costco and other merchants.
“Men and women have been assaulted by employees of stores while shopping when they were not willing to wear a mask over their nose, mouth, and face which deprives them of vital oxygen to breath[e],” the complaint continues.
The claim also criticizes schools that require children to wear masks.
The complaint, it also notes, is needed to “clean up the legal cesspool” and “overcome the corruption of the courts, officers, attorneys, judges, and public servants.”
In addition to the “Declaration of Revision,” the 30-page document also includes a one-page nearly illegible “declaration schematic,” two-page “supporting tables” of constitutional references, six-page detailing of “explicit ledgering,” which includes checked items that include the statements “No law-abiding person shall be forced to do anything he does not want to do,” “Any action taken against me must be fully described to me in writing, issued by a court of law (not an agency — like IRS), signed by a judge (not an agent — like IRS), and sworn on oath,” and “The right of people to keep and bear arms shall never be limited or infringed.”
The complaint also notes the “civil value” of the claim is more than $5.1 million.
Exhibits included in the complaint include the vaccination public health orders adopted for Clallam and Jefferson counties by Public Health Officer Dr. Allison Berry in early September.
Also included: a resolution passed by the Jefferson County Board of Health that declared COVID misinformation a public health crisis.
FROM THE WEB
The cover page for the criminal complaint is identical to one that is widely available on the internet from a webpage for a sovereign citizen advocacy group, which proclaims on its homepage, “The ‘truth’ is whatever we want it to be.”
An earlier post on the website includes an “advisory to all Patriots.”
Posted Dec. 16, it recommends that patriots have a 10-day supply of food and bottled water and buy an “old school” CB radio for communication, “while you can still get one. At some time between December 18 and 24th, President Trump will tactically implement the sanctions from his 2018 Executive Order on Voter Interference. This will freeze the money and assets of people and entities to include Facebook, Twitter, the Fake News Corp, AND Chinese U.S. financial accounts. (Also why we have prepared our land and sea borders against invasion). Be prepared to assist the National Guard and other military commands in defense of our nation.”
The post concludes: “During this time, local law enforcement will have no authority. So, assemble small Patriot teams to patrol and secure your own and surrounding neighborhoods.”
County officials recently had a Zoom meeting with their insurance risk pool, which offered to defend Jefferson and Clallam officials against the claim, which was filed in Tacoma Nov. 8 by Brent Wilson, who is not an attorney.
Interim Jefferson County Administrator Mark McCauley said the county agreed to the offer via email.
Jefferson County commissioners OK’d the arrangement last week.
Their decision came after a private executive session to talk about potential litigation with McCauley and Chief Civil Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Philip Hunsucker.
After officials returned to an open public session, Commissioner Heidi Eisenhour suggested “that we accept the risk pool’s offer to provide counsel in joint defense of Clallam County to defend the claims made by Brent Wilson and/or anyone related to him.”
There was no extended discussion and her fellow commissioners unanimously agreed.
Commissioner Kate Dean said it was “another example of how we spend county resources; trying to defend claims that are ... most often proved to be frivolous.”
“Here we go again,” she added.
