Yeah right. The first thing a black guy should do when a white cop approaches him is to quickly go into his pocket or jacket and point an object at him. Everything'll be fine after that.

Never said it was. You might try responding to what was posted instead of what you imagine was posted.

In this case a woman alleges the officer solicited oral sex from her then took her in for DUI after she refused though no alcohol was found in her system.

So has there been any follow up as to why this cop decided to hassle this guy? Is there any indication why the cop did not show identification? Was he disciplined?

Lol , cops don't even get disciplined for murdering people and blasting kids' faces off with grenades...you expect one to get disciplined for this? Unfortunately no.

I just tend to normally be in somewhat of a hurry, and would prefer not to waste time with police if I can avoid it.
I'm as much against pointless, unlawful searches and seizures as well.

What if the police officer insist you perform oral sex on him in order for you to be on your way?

Christopher Lamont Beatty, 28, was arrested on April 27, 2013 in the parking lot of ABC liquor store as he drank Arizona iced tea. The plainclothes officer demanded that Beatty turn over his iced tea, but Beatty refused, explaining that he was drinking half-n-half, which is iced tea mixed with pink lemonade.

did he have a license to drink that iced tea?
