The ability to argue your case is the most important part of your case.
Also, your Order of the Universe is not law which makes the rest of what we read questionable.
A patrolman (I refuse to call them 'officers') having a bad day is more apt to taser you than argue with you. You may debate a reasonable man to a standstill...but the police are not paid to be reasonable. In the end, like the case where the pastor was tasered at the INS highway checkpoint, if they want you, they will take you.
I like the idea that you can decide the terms of the contract if an officer detains you without warrant. I'd like to know if that has ever stood in a court of law - their law.
It's tough to win when someone else makes both the rules and the decision.
I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...
