What you say is true, but without supernatural powers, how is one to know a good cop from a bad cop.
What Johnmike suggests is the only good approach as far as I can see.
If a good citizen runs into a bad cop, that citizen must take whatever Constitutional precaustion offered to protect himself.
I've run into a bad cop myself.
And semper, no good can come from assuming one is a cop hater.
exposes their constant lying
they have been exposed as liars and they hate that.
cop was bullying, threatening, lying and demanding.
they twist and squirm and you can read their minds as they try and figure a way to lie without making it seem TOO outrageous, and salvage the case for the home team!!
overbearing and pushy cops who lie routinely
pulling their typical bully and lie routine
While I agree with you that cops are unstabe for the most part and likley to lose their tempers and violate Rights
cuff hard until the hands are damaged, strike with fists and sticks, Tazered, maced. throw around in a cage car( cops love to get a person handcuffed in the back of a cage car and then stop fast, accelerate fast, and laugh as the citizen bangs his head and body around on the matal cage..they LOVE hearing the screams!).

You did NOT respond to my central issue with your first mistaken reply: The police can NOT impound a vehicle for refusing to grant consent to search.

You did NOT respond to my central issue with your first mistaken reply:
Changing the discussion to try and put me down is the hallmark of a person who has lost the battle, cannot reply with substance and yet does not have the grace or character to either stay silent or provide evidence that proves I am wrong.
All of you who are finding something helpful in my posts have my thanks for reading, and maturely comprehending, the facts. Those who will not prove me wrong with FACTS and EVIDENCE should retire from the issue as they make themselves look extremely void of substantial abilities to contribute in any menaingful way. In other words, either put up or shut up as you are looking like fools when you cannot refute what I say and have to resort to personal attacks and supposition.
Two NJ Libertarians win false arrest case
On April 15th, 1996, Libertarian Party activists John Paff and Timothy Konek were arrested for the "crime" of passing out anti-tax literature on Post Office property in East Brunswick, New Jersey, during a Tax Day rally.
But on November 10th, they got their revenge: A federal judge ordered the town to pay the Libertarians $29,882 in legal fees for their federal civil rights lawsuit against township officials.
"I'm glad the judge ruled in our favor, but I'm sorry that the taxpayers have to pay,' said Paff, the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Somerset & Middlesex Counties. "I wish there was a way to hold public officials personally responsible for the harm they cause."
Court Finds State Liable In 17-Year-Old False Arrest, Assault
Seventeen years after Arnold G. Chapman was beaten by a New York State Trooper and then charged with resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration, the Court of Claims has ruled that the state is fully liable for the damages he incurred as a result of the assault and battery and his false arrest which resulted in him being in custody for over six hours.
Judge Richard E. Sise has scheduled a conference Wednesday between Chapman's attorney, Robert H. Ballan of Norwood, and assistant attorney general Dennis Acton to plan for a damages trial.
The case centers on an incident on Oct. 23, 1988, when Chapman was a passenger in a vehicle stopped by a State Police unit after a pursuit. The driver of the car had passed by a State Police car at nearly twice the speed limit and when police attempted to stop the car, the driver took off and tried to outrun the police before finally stopping and fleeing on foot. Chapman stayed in the car.
