What a story; unfortunately not surprising. When you try to exercise your rights they will try to throw the book at you. Blatant abuse of power selectively enforcing on individuals who dare to question their authority. The wise cracks from the officers involved in the incident are par for the course, for them it is all a joke; some piss-ant kid isn't gonna tell them what they can and cannot do, they'll show him. Of course if you bow down like an obediently little boot-licker and comply without question to whatever demands they make you can be on your way.
