Give me a break.

The overreaction started with the idiot who called the cops on them. Ending w/cops cuffing her for not showing id. I don't have a problem w/cops at all but that is so freakin' over the top it's ridiculous.

I agree that it was escalation for no reason, but not on the cops' part.

If a police officer asks for your ID give it to them. I don't care if you are white, black, blue or striped.
You are correct. You are not REQUIRED to show your ID to police, but if they ask you for ID, and you've done nothing wrong, why would you refuse? If you are a law abiding citizen, cooperating with law enforcement is not a bad thing.

Sad. How about because they have no right to harass you.

In that case, I would show my ID to avoid escalating the situation, then I would make note of their name and take my complaint to their superior.

I'm not interested in getting in a pissing match with a cop "just on principle." It WILL NOT end well.

No, not sad, because again, as a "law abiding citizen", I don't consider simply being asked for my ID to be harassment. Is the bank somehow harassing you when they ask for ID when you cash a check? Is the liquor store harassing you when they ask for ID on a liquor purchase?

Since I've done nothing wrong, and have no past record or warrants out for me, why would I consider a simple request for ID to be harassment?

I think it depends on whether they were told what was going on before they were asked. I don't think people should be expected to just randomly hand over ID on demand just because. Respect should flow both ways.

But none of us were there so we'll never know. It is fun to chat about on the internet however. LOL.

Personally after listening to the tape of the encounter I think the cop was very polite and courteous to her considering her ranting and going on like a loon. They were called by someone else, and he mentioned several times he had to investigate as someone called in lewd behavior. All she needed to do was show ID, and it would have been done with. She sounds like a spoiled brat.

In the recording, she refers to him as her boyfriend.

In the recording, it even sounds like her boyfriend thinks she's acting ridiculously.
