Let me get this right, your on your own porch, just smoking a cigarette. And A Officer of the Law comes onto your property and inquires to what you
are doing. He then asks you for ID?
Is it not your right to stand or sit in your own porch? Your not in violation of anything.
And you should have asked if he was ordering you to show your identity or requesting.
If he had ordered then he should have placed you under arrest.
Seems to me he was looking, to hit yous up on something.
I would continue this, so not let it drop like others have suggested. But make sure you keep note of everything. You might just need it later.
Do yous have a system over there such as Legal Aid or anything? I know over in the UK Legal Aid can be applied for if your income is under a certain
amount. Which helps towards paying for a Lawyer.
