    Treat the cop with respect. Assume he is doing his job, which includes putting his life on the line for you and a lot of ungrateful people who are afraid of him because he carries a gun - which is the normal attitude of sheep toward the sheepdog. If you have not broken any laws, you have nothing to fear. Show your id. While you're at it, thank the cop for his service.

    If a real bad guy came in right then and started shooting up the starbucks, guess who would be the first one to step in front of a bullet for you. Cut the cop some slack.
    well said !

    This is what I was talking about. Police need to start policing their own if they want people to start trusting them again.

    I lost interest somewhere around the eight minute point. What finally happened? Was he released after the OC vs CC within city limits question was sorted out? Presumably the on-call DA rep was consulted since these cowboys clearly slept through the applicable training sessions.

    I would respectfully tell the cop "NO" how many criminals open carry? how many rob a store at gun point and just trot over to their local starbucks?

    A cop has no more legal right to ask for my ID because I'm OCing as they do to ask purely because of someone's skin color. Citizens have rights to privacy. Rights arent just something we have or get to play with. they are a responsibility that we must use! the day we stop being responsible for our rights is they day we lose them. I for one will fight to the end for my rights, all of them!

    AO, I think the fellow in question pushed the envelope about as far as he could and showed remarkable resolve in the process given the circumstances. He doesn't need anyone to tell him how to suck eggs. The next step was going to be a police baton up side the head. But good on ya for fighting to the end through that keyboard.

    You mean like this: Ex-Cop Nailed for Stealing Power Tools | NBC Miami Ex-cop arrested by current cops.

    Felix, from what I am aware of he was released 45 minutes later and all his possessions were returned. The cops apparently made several phone calls trying to find the law if any that he had broken but was unable to do so and sent him on his way. As for the recording he had started it before he left his house but removed the 2 minutes of dead time for video purposes. It appears he is seeking legal counsel at this time.

    I was replying to ccwaz about their comment to just give over ID if a cop asks. Is that OK with you? I thought that is what this forum was for? to discuss our views and opinions about related topics... Am I wrong? If you do not agree with my view that is fine, you can say so but there is no need to mock me for my comments.

    Who is ccwaz anyway? I scrolled back three pages on my laptop and didn't see anyone by that name. Please include a relevant quote the next time so it's obvious who you're talking about unless you're the next poster. Now that I know who you were responding to, your comment makes more sense. Sorry for believing you were telling that ballsy YouTuber how to suck eggs when he went a lot further than I know I would have given the equivalent circumstances. I see a lot of keyboard bravado but as the popular saying goes on another forum, "It never happened if there's not pictures (or video/audio)." In this guy's case, there was audio and he didn't give an inch until it was obvious the consequences would have been some physical harm, even though he was "right" by the letter of the law. But being dead right/seriously injured at the hands of an out-of-control cop doesn't cut it...there's a time to capitulate and continue the resistance in a more civilized setting...in a court of law. And that guy took it right to the brink...and was ultimately released according to FloridaBlue.
