Charges Dismissed With Prejudice Against Steven Anderson

Very good news from Freedom's Phoenix today regarding the charges against Steven Anderson.

Mr Anderson is the pastor who was beaten and tasered by Border Patrol agents and Arizona DPS officers at an internal suspicionless Border Patrol checkpoint East of Yuma, Arizona earlier this year:


Mr. Anderson's attorney, Marc Victor, called into the radio show Declare Your Independence With Ernest Hancock this afternoon and was happy to report that all charges against Mr. Anderson had been dismissed with prejudice by a Yuma County Judge during preliminary trial proceedings earlier today. It appears that among other things, the prosecutor and Border Patrol refused to turn over copies of checkpoint guidelines, training manuals and other documentation that was subpoenaed by Victor during the discovery phase of the case. At the last minute, the prosecutor attempted to turn over some of the subpoenaed documentation when it became clear Marc wasn't going to let the matter drop. Shortly thereafter, the judge dismissed the charges with prejudice anyway - too little, too late.

I've created an mp3 file of the interview with Marc Victor that you can listen to below. The full radio show segment can be accessed here. It sounds like additional information regarding the case will be forthcoming in the near future so stay tuned:

Additionally, Marc Victor is representing Mr. Anderson in a civil rights lawsuit against the Border Patrol and Arizona DPS. Now that charges against Anderson have been dismissed, the real show is about to begin....

Finally, it should be noted that Mr. Victor represented me when I was maliciously prosecuted by the Tohono O'odham Police Department in a roadblock incident back in 2002. During that incident, a very similar sequence of events took place. The tribal police refused to turn over copies of their (non-existent) checkpoint guidelines (without admitting they didn't have any) and the judge dismissed the charges against me with prejudice.

My civil rights lawsuit against the tribal police regarding the incident is still ongoing after a successful appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this year.

happy for steven, though long ago i passed the point where the "ruling" of any goon court means much to me. seems it will continue to get much worse, as many court edicts seemingly in favor of liberty simply supply footholds with which goons declare righteousness while terrorizing.

the state pays nothing.

Praise God. Now if they would only bring criminal charges against the officers involved.

Good news.

So often blacks will complain (rightfully so) of being pulled over for DWB- Driving While Black.

Steven got pulled over for DWAR- Driving While Aware of Rights.

I've been following this site since it's inception. Your exposure of the police state one checkpoint at a time has given me the courage and the knowledge to step up to what is right.

I remember before I had no problem pulling over to the side of the road because I wasn't sure what to say and I didn't want to be accosted. In reality I was being accosted every time it happened. Now, they are lucky if I talk to them.

The above video is damning proof of what kind of place we live in. Traveling up and down the highway unmolested is a fundamental right we've lost because people can't stand up to it except for the few brave individuals as the good man in that video being savagely beaten. Seriously, he could have been killed 3-4 different ways just from what I could see in the footage of the brutal assault.

One last thing, I'm an amateur astronomer and I can't tell you how many times I've been stopped on the 8 highway in-between Yuma and San Diego, in the name of National Security. Just burns me up.

Keep up the good work, sir.

Congrats Pastor Steve. But as Bible believing Christians we know it will get much worse. I hope all that read this seek out Jesus as your Lord and Saviour because the Rapture is near and the Anti-Christ is coming ! This is nothing compared to what is going to happen !

Just wanted to add something. I'm a former Federal Police Officer. Patrick Henry said, "give me liberty or give me death." He didn't want the King of England's security, he wanted freedom. What kind of cowards have we become that we readily trade away our freedom for a promise of security? 1000's of men died in bloody battles to gain us this freedom ! If this has happened we cease to be America. Don't bother asking God to Bless us. We have turned our backs on God and allowed our Congress and Senate to do the same. Instead we place our faith in corrupt Godless organizations like the ACLU and NARAL. The majority of Americans aren't spineless Godless cowards but do not raise their voice and do nothing to stop or slow down what is taking place. To them it's like a bad movie playing in front of them and when they wake up the bad dream will be gone. WRONG ! They let Practicing Christians and Jews be attacked for their faith ! Satan is having a field day. Adolf Hitler would Marvel on how fast the US is collapsing without even a shot being fired. He would wonder why he couldn't do this to us in 1944. Just a tidbit to help you think. I right my congress and senate. They probably hate me (they're libs) but so what. It's my right and I exercise it !!!

Wow, first time seeing that video. That was hysterical!! The way he screamed when he was getting tasered! I wish they tasered him like four more times. It was just too funny.

Serves him right.

Freedom means not being scared of terrorists.

@ Roger. It seems that you were born out of time. You would have been the "poster boy" for the "Geheimes Staatspolizei-Amt GeStaPA)" otherwise known as the "Gestapo". You would be proud of your shiny black boots and the the deaths heads symbols on your uniform. Yes Roger, The Führer would welcome you with open arms.

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on this Anderson character, but of course he would claim that is was the BP that had a hit out on him. I would definately put that video up on youtube. lol

The individual going by the name of SupportBP above and implying threats of physical violence against those who exercise their rights at suspicionless checkpoints inside the country left the following fingerprint with his message:

IP address:,

As such, it looks like this individual is associated with the U.S. Army and used a military computer to make his threats.

It is tragic our police power has gotten so out of control check points like these are allowed. It is a reflection of the frustration over 911, I think. However, to use the tactics of our worst enemies, tactics used by police states to oppress, is un-American and must be stopped. Dios te bendiga. Tim Paynter, immigrants2bfree

Roadblock Revelations

Welcome to Checkpoint USA's blog. Here you'll find general information and discussions regarding growing threats to our right to privacy & travel.

While I refer to court cases along with state and federal law frequently in this blog, nothing written here should be construed as legal advice. I am not an attorney. Rather, I'm someone concerned about the growing disregard for individual rights present at all levels of government.

My conclusions are my own based upon personal experience and research. The law is made purposely complex however and varies significantly from place to place and circumstance to circumstance.
