You're not answering the question, taintluck.     Why is pulling out your wallet and showing a driver's license such a big deal?
8/29/2014 5:05 PM
To me it's not. To some it might be. I'm sure there's a shitfuckton of crazy anti government rednecks that could answer better.

It's funny that some of the same people who are OUTRAGED by the AUDACITY of a policeman asking you to produce identification also think it's perfectly OK for the government to REQUIRE you to purchase healthcare insurance, whether you want it or not.

Perhaps.  But, as you so eloquently put it, I want the cops to know what the shitfuckton of crazy anti government rednecks are doing.   Especially if they refuse to show an identification.   The people who act like they're hiding something are the exact ones I want to be protected from.

Do you know why I refused to allow the cops to search my car and residence?  Because I knew what they were looking for and I had it.   I didn't do it because "I KNOW MY RIGHTS!!!!"

No one is outraged by a cop asking for ID. They are outraged by that cop using a taser on the person for legally refusing the request.

Maybe outrage is too strong.  But you certainly seem that it's an egregious enough request that you'll refuse to comply.

What do you tell a co-worker who asks "what time is it?"  Do you tell them "sorry, I don't have to tell you"?

What do you think a biker would tell a cop who told him to put on a helmet in a state that didn't require helmets?
"You bet. Thanks for the tip officer."

Unless I was black... In which case I'd probably call him a racist pig.

The only thing that was egregious/outrageous/wrong about this situation was the tasing and the arrest. The request was fine. The legal refusal was fine. Should have ended there.

"some states have "stop and identify" laws, but the officer is still required to have a reasonable suspicion before demanding it. The problem is the officer is not required to advise you what his suspicion is at the time of the stop, so you may not know if the detention if valid. The test is to ask the officer if you are free to leave. If he says no, then you should produce ID. If you feel the stop is illegal, it is unlikely you will win the argument in the street. Show your ID and challenge it at a later time."

If I've learned one thing re: business politics its this... 'Being right at the wrong time means you're wrong'. There is a time and place for a stand like this. This guy chose poorly.

MN is not "some states."

Stop being so retarded, no one buys your "I'm a big shot" act.
