  3. It sounded to me like the trooper asked the passenger for his driver's license.

    As a courtesy to the officer ... TXDPS has CC info for Texas residents in the computer and know CC when they run you. Why risk making a police officer mad just because the law says ...?
    And I consider the encounter lucky as some DPS would have spent much more time at the scene pursuing their appointed duties.

    And what would those appointed duties be in this case?

    Maybe he was appointed to discus the merits of carrying with a round in the chamber vs. carrying empty chamber.

    I also would like to know the officer's justification for running (or even asking to see) the passenger's license...

Thats when he asked me bluntly,"are you carrying". I said no I am not at the time. And he forcefully hands back the Id's and walks away.

    So I guess because of the new law that passed for us is that if your not carrying your not required to show ID, I didnt intentionally do it, but the fact he was mad that I didnt through me for a loop. I guess I would be on my guard knowing I just encountered someone who was carrying and failed to mentioned it. What is he hiding or something. But I a good guy here, right?
    And THIS is why I inform EITHER way, carrying or not carrying.

    The law needs to be consistent. Either we DO inform or we dont in both cases.
    Making a cop play a guessing game is the worst thing on earth we can do.

    Well said.
    I agree that the OP did nothing wrong.
    However, that fact wont make much difference when hes being pistol whipped and handcuffed by some rogue cop with an attitude.
    Best just to go ahead and not try to play rambo with LEOs in the off chance that this one needs an anger management course.

    Sorry, been gone for a while - the appointed duties are to make your life miserable and with any luck offer a ride to the station where we can relax, drink some coffee, hit the bathroom, and fill out some paperwork.
