You missed a whole lot of points of the issue...basically what you said is right...and court is where you will be...if you refuse to comply to my orders...your going whether you like it or not...PERIOD....I know some alphas males think they are the top of the food chain...they learn they are not..even if its temporary...
What you are assuming is that every traffic cop is going to be following the same guidelines. That is not 100% true, as there are many recorded instances of cops going overboard. If they pulled me over for a traffic violation, and then ask me where I'm going...then I could tell them that I wish not to disclose that information, but yes I was speeding, ran the light, or whatever.
If they say that I'm under arrest, read me my Miranda rights, and tell me why I'm being arrested....then they grab my wrists and attempt to cuff me...at this point any sort of push back, or resistance would be a minor form of violence. Now if it was something as simple as the cuffs pinched the skin on my hand or something and I get nailed with a baton then that is overboard....but if I resist by throwing my body around into the officer or whatever then I am crossing the line.
It is a two-way street in these sorts of situations. Just like some people you have to taser, shoot, or arrest; there are some cops who go well beyond what they are supposed to do.
A police officer's first job is to keep the peace, not enforce the laws. I don't think we'll ever reach and accord there, but we maybe able to on where the line in the sand is for people and cops.
Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
