    Some crimes must be observed by an officer for charges to be laid.

    Can you cite any legal authority for that? Unless there is some recent Supreme Court decision to the contrary I'm not aware of, the fact a person does not identify himself when police briefly detain him under reasonable suspicion does not give them a basis for detaining him any further. See Kolender v. Lawson, 461 U.S. 352

    "Terry encounters must be brief; the suspect must not be moved or asked to move more than a short distance; physical searches are permitted only to the extent necessary to protect the police officers involved during the encounter; and, most importantly, the suspect must be free to leave after a short time and to decline to answer the questions put to him." (Brennan, J., concurring).

To me it's just kind of hard to feel like I'm a free person in a free country if someone can just come up to me for any reason and demand that I identify myself.
    That was your brother's take on cop work? He must have been Schenectady PD. This cop had a perfectly good reason to investigate the complaint and the individuals involved.

    My apologies for the boner in phrasing.

    Intereview with them... She seems a bit crazy.. So the psych unit that the cop offered may have been a good idea.. And he must be part giraffe. He can certainly reach the leaves at the top of the tree with that neck.

I'd use your phrase back at you and say it's usually not helpful if you're obstinate "for no good reason".
    I think we come from the same generation - I'm middle 50s. I was raised the same. And when we were kids the local beat cop - we still had them back then - was a frequent guest, sometimes in uniform, at weekend cookouts. Those were different times though.
    I've personally never had an interaction with a cop that didn't involve me driving and I'm always courteous and respectful (and I've never pulled the "my brother is a cop" bit either fwiw) and have managed to not get more tickets than I have gotten. But I'm also
    a respectable looking middle class white guy which no doubt helps.

    Fifteen years a sergeant of the NYPD. Similar advice from other NYPD cops and a retired Nassau County Lieutenant.

    Oh yes, quite common. Accusations of racism ares reported all the time in order to excuse abysmal behavior. It's appalling given how much it demeans the real history behind the effort to stamp it out.

    The Cop was great in the audio I heard. Thanking this little princess from throwing down the race card. I hope she is embarrassed into oblivion. Enough with this entitled crap from self effected morons.

    Read several accounts dated 9/15 and that wasn't mentioned. All said it was an "anonymous call" - not even a 911 call.
