Carl Swensson: criminal complaint filed March 1 2016: Wood County Sheriff, Ken D. Merritt

Unfortunately, the civil law is retributive in nature and it is clear that civil courts cannot and do not step outside of statutory codes which is not law, as those who comprehend concepts of law may know;

In this jurisdiction, the ‘person’ to which a natural man is en-joined to, is subject to duties and obligations; such as the obligation to be incarcerated as TD has been;

There is only one way to stand in this venue, unfortunately and that is to abandon citizenship beforehand and be baptized as a religious man; a religious nan is civilly dead:
CIVILITER MORTUUS. Civilly dead; dead in the view of the law. The condition of one who has lost his civil rights and capacities, and is accounted dead in law. Rasor v. Rasor, 173 S.C. 365, 175 S.E. 545.

DEATH. The cessation of life; the ceasing to exist; defined by physicians as a total stoppage of the circulation of the blood, and a cessation of the animal and vital functions consequent thereon, such as respiration, pulsation, etc.
This is “natural death,” in contradistinction to “civil death,” and, also, to “violent death,” See those titles, infra.
Civil death. The state of a person who, though possessing natural life, has lost all his civil rights, and as to them, is considered as dead. Quick v. Western Ry. of Alabama, 207 Ala. 376, 92 So, 608, 609.
At common law, the extinction of civil rights and relations, so that the property of a person declared civilly dead passes to his heirs as if dead in fact. Holmes v. King, 216 Ala. 412, 113 So. 274, 276.

The “civil death” spoken of In the books, is of two kinds : (1) Where there is a total extinction of the civil rights and relations of the party, so that he can neither take nor hold property, and his heirs succeed to his estate in the same manner as if he were really dead, or the estate is forfeited to the crown. (2) Where there is an incapacity to hold property, or to sue in the king’s courts, attended with forfeiture of the estate to the crown.
Of the first kind, are the cases of monks professed, and abjuration of the realm; all the other cases are of the second kind.
Strictly speaking, there but two cases of civil death; those of a monk professed, and an abjuration of the realm. In re Erskine, C.C.A.Ind., 1 F.2d 149, 152. See, generally,
Chit.Crim.Law 723; Co.Litt. §§ 133, 199, note; Littleton § 200; 1 Bl.Comm. 132; Avery v. Everett, 110 N.Y. 317, 18 N.E. 148, 1 L.R.A. 264; In re Donnelly’s Estate, 125 Cal. 417, 58 P. 61, 73 Am.St.Rep. 62.
In New York a person sentenced to imprisonment is thereafter deemed civilly dead under Penal Law § 511. See Platner v. Sherwood, 6 Johns.Ch., N.Y., 118; Troup v. Wood, 4 Johns.Ch., N.Y., 228, 260

EXTRA LEGEM POSITUS EST CIVILITER MORTUUS. Co. Litt. 130. He who is placed out of the law is civilly dead. A bankrupt is, as it were, civilly dead. International Bank v. Sherman, 101 U.S. 406, 25 L.Ed. 866.

INTESTABLE. One who has not testamentary capacity; e. g., an infant, lunatic, or person civilly dead.


RELIGIOUS MEN. Such as entered into some monastery or convent. In old English deeds, the vendee was often restrained from aliening to “Jews or religious men” lest the lands should fall into mortmain. Religious men were civilly dead. Blount.

CONSCIENCE, RIGHT OF. As used in some constitutional provisions, this phrase is equivalent to religious liberty or freedom of conscience. Com. v. Lesher, 17 Serg. & R. (Pa.) 155; State v. Cummings, 36 Mo. 263.

Liberty of Conscience
Liberty for each individual to decide for himself what is to him religious. Gobitis v. Minersville School Dist., D.C.Pa., 21 F.Supp. 581, 584. See, also, Religious Liberty, as defined below.

Religious Liberty
Freedom from dictation, constraint, or control in matters affecting the conscience, religious beliefs, and the practice of religion; freedom to entertain and express any or no system of religious opinions, and to engage in or refrain from any form of religious observance or public or private religious worship, not inconsistent with the peace and good order of society and the general welfare.
See Frazee’s Case, 63 Mich, 396, 30 N.W. 72, 6 Am.St.Rep. 310; State v. White, 64 N.H. 48, 5 A. 828.

The body of a freeman does not admit of valuation.

LIBERUM EST CUIQUE APUD SE EXPLORARE AN EXPEDIAT SIBI CONSILIUM. Every one is free to ascertain for himself whether a recommendation is advantageous to his interest. Upton v. Vail, 6 Johns. (N.Y.) 181, 184, 5 Am.Dec.
