Point taken. So here we sit in our "free" society and we register for school, apply for mortages and rental agreements, acquire licenses to buy
firearms, drive cars, sign up for cell-phone accounts, Internet accts, Cable, satellite tv, dish tv, insurance policies, retirement accts, Library
Cards, credit cards, postal services etc, etc,etc, etc.
For such a "free" society...there sure is a lot of "registering" and documentation required that must be updated periodically. So. All of these
can verify who you are and what you do, and where you go, listen to, look at and buy. To check your "I.D.'s" and verify...at-any-time-upon

In the course of their duties, they are required to stop, detain, check, verify, affirm and otherwise find out who you are, what you are doing, who
you are doing it with, when you did it and how often...and smell your breath and sniff out your home or car for "weed"...well? There you go.
They can...and are supposed to...check us all out for our own safety and theirs...Illegal searches that we think, and they dont. The laws are in their
favor now-a-days...to protect us and assure our freedoms to have those things as we do.
Dont like it? Once you get out of detention...go file a lawsuit...that'll take awhile to even get to any court if it even does. And then? "Just
doing their jobs". Might have been wrong to you...but they have that right and are enforcing it everywhere you go, visit, bank, buy, travel the
freeways, roads, air, rails etc. All in check-pointed applications, in the name fo freedom. Ours. So, there you go. And that sound was the sound of
the 4th Amendment slamming the door.
PS If you havent noticed...every law and guarantee by our Constitution we have...is in a check and balance-by-determination-of-credentials-and-proof
of who we are and why we are doing what we choose to do at any given moment. This is the way TPTB snuck in ways to hassle us. By providing our
