    Correct as far as motor vehicles go. But NY Law provides that the officer must reasonably suspect you have committed or are about to commit a felony or a misdemeanor before you are required to provide ID. Normal caveats about police and "reasonable suspicion" naturally apply.

    Yes, in NYS you are required to show ID if the police have a reasonable suspicion. My understanding is that this varies from state to state and that in CA it is not a requirement and does not violate laws about obstructing an investigation

    Since when are you not required to show ID when you are the subject of a complaint of potential illegal activity? Is it your position that every individual who is a potential suspect has to be arrested, taken to jail, so that ID can be determined and police can ask a question?

    The need to exert "rights" in order to escalate an incident above and beyond the common sense of deescalating an incident is a symptom of the whole increase in disrespect for law enforcement and the escalation of confrontation as a standard MO in some circles.

    Always taking the cops side.

    All this cop had to do to complete his "investigation" was to see if this woman and this man were engaging in sex while parked. If, when the cop arrived after his trip from the donut shop, and saw that this man and woman were dressed and not having sex, that should end the so called "investigation."

    But, when the man is white and the woman is black, you see what happens.

    ... said the worst detective ever. Let's say you call the police when you see someone robbing your house. The police pull up to the curb and don't see anyone robbing your house, but they do see some people walking near the house with a bag of stuff. You expect him to not even ask them to identify themselves because the officer didn't personally see them in the act of robbing your house?

    Well yes. As shown on video and audio, the black person goes apoplectic and spits on the graves of those people who fought and died for equality.
