These are things you don't have to worry about in the UK. At worse, they may rough you up but even then, you have free health care so... whatever.

1. Pull into a well lit area. If possible on a camera aka walmart or a convince store
2, turn on hazards to attract attention of passersbys to the stop
3, turn key to accessory position
4.wait until officer arrives at window and dont answer any questions put to u. Always play dumb. They will try to get you to slip up
5. Keys in accessory position incase you have to outrun bullets
6.keep lights off to make yourself a harder target
7.never roll down your windows further than needed to hand the officer any requested info
8.always be ready to fight or flight
9.never address the officer as this could be taken as a threatening action
I decided not to duplicate the two you did
Thats how it is now in america
The police are your enemy and should never be appeased
Or your children will suffer
Good advice and thanks for posting. I recall being popped for some drivers licence/insurance paperwork, and I asked the cop "Got time for a story?" He said "Try me" and I laid out the extenuating circumstances involved. He told me to fix it, fax him the verifications, and see him in court, where he'd get the Crown to drop it. All was done accordingly and worked out fine. Yes...I'm a white male...but I also get mistaken for Native...or a Biker...or a Native Biker...lol.

Great post Steve!
As a former LEO, I'd like to offer the following as food for thought:
1) Most of us will be professional
2) Were all humans, and some of us still have compassion for others
3) We also have bad days, and some of us unfairly take it out on others
