Lacy-Lakeview, Texas – Just like a distant relative from his grandfather’s generation, Victor Pool chose to expatriate himself due to a lack of confidence in his government’s classification of his citizenship.
“How can they classify me as African American when they have no proof?” he asks. “Show me some shipping manifests. Show me that my people came here in conditions of involuntary service, then show me who caused them to be brought here as slaves. When you do, I want my reparations.”
Elijah Pool changed his name to Elijah Muhammad and went on to found the Nation of Islam, Mosque No. 1, Chicago. He was Pool’s grandfather’s cousin. He later guided other famous Americans, people such as Cassius Clay, to cast off a slavery name and become Muhammad Ali, just as Malcolm Little, a man with a record as a burglar and convicted felon who served time for his crimes, became Malcolm X.
In an audio interview, he explains the process of expatriation and its implications:
He and his wife Melissa will challenge the authority of prosecutors in the McLennan County Criminal District Attorney’s Office to prove the jurisdiction of the Court in which they are charged with failure to identify, interfering with an investigation and resisting arrest when they came found Bellmead Police officers allegedly assaulting his daughter while making an arrest for shoplifting at Wal-Mart Super Center in that city.
In this audio interview, he explains the process of serving a writ quo warranto to challenge the jurisdiction of the court in adjudication of a criminal lawsuit filed against a chattel of the corporation known as the United States. He will require that they show cause in the U.S. District Court of Washington, D.C., that the Courts of McLennan County and the State of Texas have jurisdiction over the “straw man” known as Victor Pool.
His daughter, who is charged with resisting arrest, failure to identify, theft by shoplifting, and assault of a police officer in a melee during which the entire family was subdued by numerous police officers and arrested through the use of submission holds, TASER guns and pressure on nerve endings of the face and neck, is still in juvenile detention. He and his wife have been unable to obtain her release in their custody because they will not agree to a psychological evaluation. He has some interesting ideas about that.
The mother, Melissa Bias Pool, said that when the police officer who placed his fingers in her nostrils and tried to pull her nose back over her eyebrows grabbed her, “He tore off the scarf she was wearing on her head.”
Both say they plan to attend a march against police brutality to be held at 1 p.m. Saturday on a route from Indian Springs Park to the Waco Municipal Court at Police headquarters.

A writ quo warranto is a demand issued by a demandant to a respondent filed with a court of competent jurisdiction, to hold a hearing within 3 to 20 days, to present proof of his authority to execute his claimed powers. The writ is unlike a petition or motion to show cause, because the burden of proof is on the respondent, not on the demandant. This is an example of one such, filed in all federal Courts:
