    specific law that he is alleging that I have broken. That is his job!  If he can't cite the law accurately I would suggest that he radio someone for reference or leave me alone.

    These guys carry weapons and are authorized to kill people unfortunately based upon the law. I don't think I am expecting too much to expect them to know it.

    Further what often happens when a person questions what law applies, and the officer can't quote a specific law, the officer will become combatant with the individual.  

    The problem is that cops are human and the canon of laws is enormous, far more than you can expect them to remember off the top of their heads.

    So they sometimes operate the way most of us do, sorta figuring if it seems like it might be illegal, it probably is.  There was some blather about this sort of thing back after mid sept 2001, with all sorts of paranoia about refineries, chemical plants, nuke plants, etc, etc, etc.

      et al. repealed.  You are a dumbass is you can't see the real world consequences of the collective paranoia and then the wholesale give away of our rights when bush broke our laws and WE decided not to take him out of office.

      Start doing something to change the status quo of the "pelosi"ies.  Or this is what you can expect.

        having to resort to calling you names.

        These issues with the police and their knowledge of the laws they enforce predate the unfortunate Patriot Act. I'm surprised that in your infinite wisdom you aren't aware of that.

          The "dumbass" wasn't personally directed, sorry.  Just to anyone who supported/supports the give away of our freedoms and liberty for the sake of security.

          Didn't mean to lump you in.

          Also there is much that has changed since the great "look the other way while our government rips up our Constitution".  Things like cops/people being scared of other people photographing oil refineries.
