Tennessee Man Allegedly Talking To Jailed Memphis ‘Sovereign Citizen’ Charged By U.S. Secret Service With Threatening To Kill President Obama

A man having a phone conversation with a jailed Tennessee “sovereign citizen” and frustrated she could not make bond had “a plan,” the U.S. Secret Service said in a July 25 affidavit for an arrest warrant.

That plan, according to the affidavit, was to “burn” President Obama, “kill” him and “murk” the President and the “Justice Department.”

“Murk” is “street slang for murder,” the Secret Service advised a U.S. Magistrate Judge.

“We gonna [***k] his [**s] up,” the man said, according to the affidavit.

Precisely who constituted “we” remains unclear.

What is clear is that Darrin Young, also known as Darrin Fleming, has been arrested on a charge of threatening the President’s life.

The purported “sovereign” with whom allegedly Young was conversing on July 11 was identified as Tabitha Gentry, a prisoner at the Shelby County Jail. She was charged earlier this year with aggravated assault against two police officers, evading arrest and theft of property over $250,000, amid allegations she illegally had taken over a Memphis mansion and began “squatting” there.

Young, 39, used the identity of Unas Sebhet Re El in an earlier interaction with Memphis police, according to the affidavit. That interaction also involved Gentry and played out after a traffic stop, according to the affidavit.

Gentry used the name Al Cora Bay during the stop and claimed to be “indigenous,” according to the affidavit.

Gentry is a purported “Moorish” national, a group of “sovereigns” that may consist largely of African-Americans. (See some background on the purported “Moorish” movement at the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center.)

See story on the arrest of Young at WREG.com, News Channel 3 in Memphis. See May 8, 2013, PP Blog story that references Gentry and other purported “sovereigns.”

Earlier this month, the FBI cautioned law-enforcement agencies statewide in Tennessee to be prepared for encounters with “sovereign citizens.”

Investigators in Shelby County reported the July 11 conversation and forwarded a recording to the Secret Service, which opened a probe that led to Young’s arrest.

  1. All you people do are to characterize certain people,especially if they are black people.This just shows that discrimination is still alive and well. This whole country was founded under sovereign men that also wrote this great document we call the constitution, and a lot of white peole use this word also. And it’s also use in the bible,you need to find out what this word mean and stand for before you label the people who called themselves sovereign citizens in this courtry.Born in a soverign nation,and these rights are granted to all of us “born as a free human being,guranteed under the constitution. This is just a way for the system as well as the media to target black people or any one who stand up for their god given right. They target these people so they can arrest them as a message to anyone that stand up for their rights.just like the civil rights movement with Martin Luther king as they jailed,him and labeled him a terrorist.

  2. We the people… what’s wrong with you people? You are arguing in favor of someone conspiring to commit murder, of a third party unrelated to the cause of the incarceration of the second party. If you believe that the Constitution of the United States renders murder acceptable, you really ought to talk to your priest, your doctor, and your grandparents about it. All of them will be worried that you’ve become a sociopath, psychopath, or similar term for a madman. Or madwoman, as the case may be.

    There is no “god given right” to extinguish a fellow human being’s life for something they did not do.

  3. We the people.: This whole country was founded under sovereign men

    Actually, the country was founded under mortal men who declared the 13 British-ruled colonies united, free and independent states.

    In fact, these mortal men perhaps most famously declared, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

    For whatever reason — and through a series of increasingly bizarre interpretations and downright idiotic, deliberate misinterpretations of U.S. political/cultural/legislative/judicial/military/treaty events over the years — the so-called “sovereign citizens” and “Moorish American/national” movements have emerged.

    One remarkably disturbing thing about the “sovereigns” is that the interpretations/misinterpretations almost always are used to rationalize/sanitize a fraud of some sort: tax fraud, securities fraud, fraud involving licensing, fraud involving real estate and/or banking, major thefts and burglary.

    Tabitha Gentry’s problems started after she claimed possession of a $3 million mansion that had become a bank foreclosure in Memphis.

    The mansion wasn’t Graceland, but let’s use Graceland to illustrate just how bizarre Gentry’s take on the law is.

    Let’s say Elvis Presley had suffered an injury to his vocal cords that prevented him from singing and acting and had caused a bank to foreclose on Graceland.

    Under Gentry’s apparent theory, she could rush to the courthouse and file a paperwork confection that would:

    * Defeat the claim of the bank and magically confer ownership/control of Graceland to herself, despite the fact she had no preexisting ownership interest in the property.

    * Completely dispossess Elvis and the Presley family of any ownership interests they had in, say, guitars and girlhood photos of Lisa Marie left behind in the mansion.

    These things would be further solidified as a matter of law — under the Gentry theory — by posting signs at Graceland that read “Keep Out/Private Property” and affixing a representation of the purported flag of the purported Moorish American National Republic.

    We the people.: All you people

    “You people” didn’t work very well for Ross Perot.

    I sincerely hope you aren’t trying to compare Tabitha Gentry or Darrin Young, who was accused of threatening the life of America’s first black President, to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

    Heaven forbid if the King family ever experiences financial hardship. Under the Tabitha Gentry theory, she could move in and exercise control over all property.

    But why limit it to Dr. King? She also could go after Monticello and Mount Vernon if they ever hit a bump in the road.
