What do you mean by respectfully? Would you physically resist him?

If he took it from me and poured it out I would arrest him for theft. I would not pour it out myself.

Really, it's a sad place where people are getting upset over people getting arrested and hassled for drinking Ice Tea.

He had no cause to comply with the officer, he wasn't doing anything wrong.

you always have cause to comply with the officer. Your rights allow you to appeal it after the fact or to press your own charges, but resisting an officer is a crime.

No you don't. The police are not above the law.

Obviously it isn't. Did you not understand what the judge said? The officer had no reason to arrest him so the charges were dismissed. If it was a crime they wouldn't have been dismissed.

arrest him for theft? Im not sure i follow. Or do you mean you would press charges? That would be within your rights, however if you physically resist him that would be a crime. I have no sympathy for degenerates/idiots who resist officers, whether the officer is right or wrong. It is not up to the citizen on the street to decide when the officer is within his rights or not. There are avenues to get justice, resisting an officer is not one of them. If hes wrong, simply comply and leave him holding his dick like a fool.

You don't have to comply with an unlawful order. Bonus points for being respectful about it.
