Is This the Person Who Wrote -- ‘When Should You Shoot A Cop?’

"I don't actually like the Constitution"...  "I feel no obligation to obey" the law.

Since we posted the story about a disturbing "informational" letter found on a table at Occupy Phoenix, the Blaze has been investigating the origins of the item and who might have written it.

As best we can discern, the words seem to have come from a man named Larken Rose.

Mr Rose seems to have some issues with authority figures. His website has many postings and videos that take issue with the IRS as well as the police. In late June of this year he first posted "When Should You Shoot A Cop?" as a guest, on an alleged police-watchdog site called CopBlock.

But who is Larken Rose?

From what we could find, Mr. Rose is a man who was jailed for 15 months for failing to pay federal income taxes. (This might explain the title of his online audio rants called "Outside The Cage.")

According to the Tax Protester Guru website:

Rose is a self-described anarchist, who has written in private correspondence (introduced into evidence as a criminal trial) that "I don't actually like the Constitution" because it gives too much power to politicians," and that "I feel no obligation to obey" the law.

It is not known if Larken Rose printed and distributed the offensive flyer at Occupy Phoenix, but they are certainly his words. If you feel the need to hear more from Rose, he has also posted an ample supply of videos on YouTube.

Special salute to Meredith Jessup (over on the Blog) for help in tracking down Rose and his myriad of hate posts.
