    I have no idea where you got all of that crap. I answer the questions because he is there to do a job I ask him to do, we are the same, we both don't like crooks and we chose to pay him to catch them. I respect both him and the job and the rule that says don't steal our ****. I have zero fear of him ****ing up my life, I'm not a paranoid nutcase that fears cops. Most people that do, probably have a reason to.

    I don't think we are really at odds. My point was from the perspective of a non criminal. If a cop in a parking lot of target ask to see in my bag, I will show him the contents and the receipt in order to avoid getting arrested, getting a lawyer and having him show him the items and receipt. If I at all think that there are serious charges about to be levied at me I will certainly take advantage of all my rights.
    You didn't say you will show him the contents of your bag because you respected the guy or the rules he is enforcing, but that you didn't want to get arrested go through the legal system.

    ? Again, because it is his job, I'm not stupid and understand that he needs to do this and by helping him get through it quicker we both can get on with our day. No fear, just respect and common sense.

    The badge and uniform is just that a badge and a uniform. What gives him the advantage is that he has greater numbers and is the aggressor in the situation. All I'm doing by driving around in the neighborhood is....ahhhhh...I suppose drive around in the neighborhood. I can't really think of anything else I'm doing.

    At this time we have no idea about what happened except that the police sustain that the teen pointed a gun at the cop, which may or may not be true (see post #66).

    All other assumptions are premature until more facts are known.
    Funny post (#201)! Nice writeup

    Sorry, but you said flat out that you are showing him the contents of your bag because you want to avoid getting arrested and dealing with the legal system. I never said it was fear, I never said it wasn't common sense, but I did say your motivations are not that you agree with the law or that you respect the officer and what he does. We don't do what the officer wants because we like them, but that we are trying to protect our own asses.

    Shoplifting? Is that worth a gun fight with the PoPo?
