I recall reading a historical document from the 1800's which recounted how a woman in Larimer country Colorado came home from a trip, after being away for some time, to find a stranger named 'Scotty' living in her house. He refused to leave despite repeated insistence by the woman. She proceeded to set her own court, a court of original and exclusive jurisdiction to the people and it went like this;

She brought charges via an affidavit and presented it to the sheriff. She then set a time and date set certain for a court to convene to hear the matter. Scotty was presented with the charges by the Sheriff. The woman then arranged for a jury to appear along with 3 justices who were county commissioners.

The date came, the hearing was held. Scotty was found guilty, removed from the house and hauled off to jail. There were no 'State officials' other than the Sheriff and County commissioners and there were certainly no 'titles of nobility' i.e. attorneys (esquires). The woman and her community handled the entire affair on their own.

This is how we avoid the tyranny of the state and start taking matters into our own hands!

What they didn't have trespass laws???
I have a similar issue. The laws on trespass are originally in common law, and more recently under CODES. Under the codes as an owner if I demand a trespasser to leave and they have no lawful right to possession (read that as a contract verbal or written where consideration was exhanged, etc.) then I can do a private person arrest for the misdemeanor of trespass if they REFUSE to leave on my demand. Still the Sheriff refused to comply with my demand to arrest him. The Sheriff refused to take the trespasser into custody upon my performing an arrest on the trespasser. The Sheriff told the trespasser that he had rights as a resident because he had been there for monthes camping out on a deck.

Of course the Constitutional rights to "possession" of my private property meant nothing.
No need to set a court. The Sheriff is derelict in his duty. The way a Sheriff will arrest you is by asking you questions and having you convict yourself. He could easily asked the trespasser if he had a contract and the trespasser stated openly on video that I have, he had no contract, so....After hearing that he had no contract then he had no lawful right to possession and that should have been enough to seal the deal. Of course the Sheriff could never be sued by the trespasser for removing him, so the real deal is that the Courts want to have control, show everyone they have no rights and charge for their services (filing a civil unlawful detainer action $240) and then you have to pay the Sheriff to enforce a Writ of Possession $150 instead of their just doing their job without a fee for services. Its all about control and money.
