Dougiestan: A clear mind and a full heart

A north Texas man in the "sovereign citizen" movement attempted to take over a mansion in north Dallas on Monday.
Upset with the current state of affairs in the United States, Douglas LeGuin attempted to occupy
a mansion in far north Dallas. After knocking on the door and threatening a nanny, he started a dumpster fire. When first responders arrived, he began shooting at them, but no one was injured. LeGuin had also set up propane canisters around the house as explosives but none were detonated. He called 911
and it really is a doozy.
Background on the sovereign citizen movement:
Southern Poverty Law Center:
"Sovereigns are clogging up the courts with indecipherable filings and when cornered, many of them lash out in rage, frustration and, in the most extreme cases, acts of deadly violence, usually directed against government officials."
"The FBI considers sovereign-citizen extremists as comprising a domestic terrorist movement, which, scattered across the United States, has existed for decades, with well-known members, such as Terry Nichols, who helped plan the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, bombing."
