in essence, you can't name the person you are going to meet.

I gave the name - but I'm not posting it on ATS for privacy reasons,
Why should you have to give them the name of who you are meeting anyway?
I'd tell them i was meeting someone and when asked for the name tell them it's none of their business--and it ISN'T any of their business the NAME
of who you are meeting. If they asked where they live, tell them the city, no more. That type of information is NOT their business, even though some
might argue it's "procedure," as in "what is your business here, how long are you staying, etc," but person information about a party NOT
Back to the OP, that encounter sounds absolutely INSANE. It sounds worse than Nazi Germany, the way they tossed your car for NO logical reason other
than you were coming to meet an "unknown" who you met via the internet, which is still not a reason (IMO) to treat you like they did, unless you
were acting--or looked--EXTREMELY suspicious or nervous to begin with. I am sure this type of thing does not happen THAT often, so there has to be (i
would think) something else that caused them to act this way (and i am NOT one to give cops the benefit of the doubt). I mean, hand on the gun,
tossing the car, taking you into a room...something is definitely up, there.
You wanna know the name if who i am meeting? NoYF business.
Still a pretty freaky encounter, and affirms the police state into which we are descending, made even easier by people who just quietly go along with
the processes and infringements of the rights and freedoms of travel.
