Why do so many of you continue to believe that there is some law that says that we have to carry and present ID? There is NO SUCH LAW!! The Supreme
Court has ruled that if a person is ' reasonably ' suspicious to a cop for some DEFINED reason, then the cop may ask for IDENTITY, NOT
identification. Get the difference?
No one has to carry ID. All you have to do is idenify yourself and if the cop doubts you are being honest, tough. Let him PROVE that you are
providing false information, or release you. Citizens have NO responsibility to make sure that some cop is satisfied with our answers. That is NOT
what the LAW says. If the cop doesn't like the fact that you are giving him a verbal reply, then let him write his Congressman and suggest a new law
that demands that we carry ID and present it to any cop at any time, like the Nazi thugs want .
But for now, there is NO law that says we must do so. NONE. AND, you CANNOT be legitimately charged for ' obstructing an officer' or some other
nonsense. It is a false charge and NOT appropriate. NO judge will convict someone because they did not choose to give paper ID. No law covers that.
Cops MUST be satisfied legally with a VERBAL identity by a citizen. They may not like it, but so what? Are we here to make cops happy? I think
Cops cannot demand some specific form of ID. If that were true, then each and every cop could insist on a different form before becoming satisfied,
correct? One would accept a drivers license, and another would take a library card, a real hard ass would request a Passport and throw you in jail for
not having one if he decided to, right?
See where it goes when cops are allowed to determine what is acceptable? The COURTS have already spoken and decided that if you give VERBAL
identification that is enough. Cops cannot find a law, anywhere in the USA, that insists on written ID or some other form of paper. That is Nazi era
stuff, " Papers Please!! ". Then the PLEASE stops and the rest of the police state apparatus begins.
No, no ID is required and NO LAW saying so can be found anywhere in this nation. You ARE required to IDENTIFY yourself to an officer IF he has '
reasonable grounds ' to believe that you deserve further scrutiny for some ' articulable ' reason. Cops cannot legally just walk up to a citizen
and demand identity just for the heck of it. Alex was not charged with anything to do with ID. He will walk from this nonsense and we all know it.
The cops got to exercise their brute minds and remove a critic of the killers in charge; Geraldo Rivera is a total sell out, a wimp, a washed up and
subdued lap dog for Ruperts empire. He sold out for dollars. Murdoch wanted him on his side because Geraldo used to be able to dig up the real dirt;
but when the chips are down, he folds and uses totallyu UN professional language and shows he is far from being a real man and human being by
disrespecting the entire truth movement due to a small demonstration.
To make gay jokes and bathroom jokes at a time like that shows the DESPERATION that the mainstream media is in to keep the truth down. It is a
sickening example of a totally sold out press and a gulible and apathetic public too weak and lazy to research and read.
Shame on Geraldo and Fox, as always, and shame on the cops for another phony charge meant to strip 1st amendment rights away. This is a sick nation
led by sick people and we are watching this sickness destroy us all. And Geraldo makes potty jokes. Too much.
