Re: It's More Of The Same, Someone Thinking They're Above The Law, As They Have A Cam

-Well apparently thr rextent of those rights and the demarcation between allowed areas and not-allowed areas is up to the whim and mood of law enforcement officials. That's not right. That's not the way things are supposed to work. I suspect your interpretation of 'polite and respectful' is 'docile and obedient'. It says 'To Serve and Protect' on the side of the squad car, not 'To Command and Harrass'. It's everyone's obligation to follow lawful directives from the cops just as it's the cops' responsibility to KNOW the law. The minute you say that you'll do as you're told regardless, you're no longer a Citizen, you're a slave.
