You were very unprepared for this encounter. You let him put you on the defensive. You need to be ready for his incorrect behavior. You should have asked for what you were being detained for. When he refused to answer your questions, you should have told him that he works for the public and thus is required to answer your questions. Also when you ask for him to ID himself, don't take the it's here on my nameplate. I usually intentionally mispronounce their name when they do that and they usually correct me audibly or I continue to use their incorrect name for the duration of the detention (it is great fun if you can pun their name into something funny, because this usually gets them to correct you easier).

+Armoured Skeptic while you have a point about government agents not being allowed to refuse to marry gays or straight people. You missed the second part of the Establishment clause. While the government cannot establish a state religion, it also cannot prevent the free exercise of a person's relgion. Since many Christian factions believe homosexuality is a sin, they have the legitimate argument to refuse marrying them. For example, Christian Scientists (the religious faction, not scientist who happen to be Christian) are allowed to pray for God to heal their sick child with appendicitis, instead of rushing him to the hospital for an appendectomy which is more likely to save his life and won't get into trouble with the law.

As an aside, I believe we have long surpassed the stated need for giving tax exempt status to religious institutions. It was a stopgap measure from when they instituted federal income tax to compensate churches for any revenue lost by people now having to pay money to the government. So whatever monies lost from the donation plate would be offset by not having to pay taxes themselves and there would not be any diminishing of their good work for the community. Utter bull crap, as I have yet to see what good the church of Scientology is doing for its community to warrant it tax exemption (besides it hasn't had any revenue loss to compensate for from its members who gladly pay hand over fist to be designated as "clear").

Too bad there isn't an alarm attached to the external cameras so when they move them it would go off and effectively shut down the checkpoint until they let you leave. They might try some bogus disturbing the peace bull, however.
Also is it possible to file complaints about them, as they seem to know who you were and still detained you excessively.

+Riftsrunner _ They shut the Checkpoint down without any noise and the next time through the Agent simply waved me to the Secondary Inspection Area instead of leaving me in the way of Traffic.

I hope in the future you learn to exercise you constitutional rights. I understand you not wanting to cause a fuss, but you were walking into a situation where if you wanted to get your message out you had to expect opposition to you. And if you don't use what the Constitution gives you, you might as well not even attempt to do what you were doing. And you need to be willing to go to jail to defend your rights and get your day in court to get the passing out of literature to be as hassle-free as possible

Firstly, stay calm and be as considerate to the cops a possible. Never ID yourself unless you are accused of a crime in Michigan (it isn't a Stop and Identify state). And handing out paperwork is not a crime. Second, when in public never turn off your cameras. You are constitutional protected to film anyone, thing or building in public as there is no expectation of privacy. And NEVER for a cop who has instigated contact with you. They are public servants and are thus accountable to the general public knowledge of what they are doing in the course of their duties. As soon as he touched you camera, you should have stepped back and claimed he had assaulted you and asked for his credentials. Also follow up with filing complaints when you feel your rights have been violated by cops (this is where credentials and names are useful)

First of all this presentation is taking place at night on a Saturday, so not during school hours. The article doesn't explain how the school auditorium was booked, but I am going to assume the local church contacted the city to make arrangement for its use. As long as the city government doesn't endorse it there is no constitutional violation. (I know we hold our schools as some sacred off limits to religion zone, but it is a public space when not in use as a learning institution). It is similar to having this person giving his presentation in a public square or park which is a perfectly legal undertaken.
Now his presentation is pure nonsense. And neurologists have shown that a brain deprived of oxygen produces vivid hallucinations usually based on the religious beliefs of the person. And have shown that there is certain areas of the brain that when stimulated can induce "near death" experiences. So his claim to visit heaven is without merit. Also he had 29 ailments? And now all are cured? That seems almost as far fetched as the near death claim. Might make an interesting night if I had nothing better to do, because I always love a good fairy tale, but I have used up all my patience with the self deluded fundies this month.

When they bring a dog to do a "free sniff" search, I always ask if they keep records on how often the dog has alerted falsely? I also ask for the address where those records are kept. I usually get the response that they aren't required to. To which I say "my attorney will find that interesting. I hope you are willing to put your reputation on the line for when it falsely alerts on my car and you search and find nothing. Because this is going to cost your department the use of its canine after this." I also tell them when they go around my car to not touch my car, as the dog is supposed to sniff the air himself not where his handler indicates as is the dog's responsibility to alert on his own.This usually get the dog to fail to alert.

Unless he is willing to forgive the debt, he is required to accept any US legal tender you are offering. (While some transactions can be for specific forms of currency, unless he has a legitimate reason he has accept it. A legitimate reason for example, is on a bus which has a money counter that cannot read bills or certain coins. Another is a vending machine for similar reasons.) I would have asked him why he refused to accept the pennies (and not wanting to count them isn't a legitimate reason for refusal) and then try to get him to say that due to his refusal, was your ticket forgiven?

The one feminist that Anita cited by name in that speech is a true communist. She believes that only by following the teachings of Marx and forming a "worker's party" of women will they ever get to rule the world. That if they could only recreated the Soviet Union, except with just women will they ever be free. And any women who are against this Misandry Union need to disappear just like the Soviet disidents. This is the kind of results you get from a runaway liberal education system where the only issues that can be freely discussed are issues that everybody has agreed upon. And if your issue is not accepted, well you can go ** yourself.

If me and my friends did what these cops did in the first segment, we would be get ticketed for inhibiting pedestrian flow on a sidewalk (as cops are so fond of trumping up violations to get you to move on). Were they all on break and decided to meet on this corner? They were literally blocking the sidewalk and couldn't seem to get out of each other's way

Officer Stringfellow cleaned of the plant debris and bag up that syringe very nicely in an evidence bag. Wonder who is going to get this planted in their belongings so that they can trump up a narcotics charge?

I understand that you were proving a point with this video about profiling. However, in the future, when you are asked to exit a vehicle by a leo, close and lock all doors and windows to the vehicle. Then exit the vehicle with your keys and lock driver's door. When they remove you they are escalating their investigation of you and you need to escalate your refusal to cooperate. Once outside your car, assume they are going to arrest you (they may not) and fall back on your Miranda rights. State you refuse consent to a search, you want an attorney and you are exercising you right to remain silent on video (hopefully being uploaded to a streaming site so they cannot erase the video that is on your phone). If they continue to question you restate you request for an attorney and you are remaining silent. When and if they bring out a dog, inform the officers that you want to try and capture all of the handler and dogs actions around your car from a safe distance from both. Also inform them that they are not to touch your vehicle (handlers like to touch you car and get the dog to alert to their hand and claim that it was a hit).
