The thing that would have myself concerned is now the LEO has my address. What is to stop him from taking this to a personal level (made him look like a chump in front of his peers). Look at how he acted when it was not called for, is that a sane person's reaction?
I would be concerned that he has the "authority" to make me and mine lives a living hell.

I dunno. You'd be surprised how far a 'how's your day sir?" will go. Not long ago I got pulled over for no seat belt plus I was speeding, motorcycle cop. Had my drone sitting beside me in the passenger seat too, was heading out to fly. We talked, even got into a minor debate about seat belt fatality statistics and I bragged about how amazing of a driver I am. He asked me about my drone and we talked briefly about how far it can go and how much it costs. All I got was the seat belt ticket and and he let me know he's letting me off the speeding. Point is, cops are just regular people too but when you immediately jump out of the gate on them, they go into 'work mode'. You don't want that. You want them in 'people' mode. Tone of voice and choice of words means everything.
