Profiling by authorities is the accepted method, they've always done it. They used to do it for good reasons, such as stopping an unknown because he
fits a height/build/color description of someone who has just committed a crime, even though they may not be wearing the same clothes.
Personally, I never mind giving a cop my ID. I'll willingly give that up for a couple of reasons:
First, I have no record, and I want them to know that. Second, I carry 6 forms of identification, 4 with pictures, issued from state and government
agencies. I carry my passport in my car as well. The first part step in passing "The Attitude Test" is "proving who you are" or relinquishing to
an officer, which strokes their egos oh so nicely. I do it with gusto.
They can have my ID, because it's not me. It's some plastic with a picture of me, and some numbers that represent my locality and my credentials. I
don't care if they take my ID rather than my word for it.
But I agree, there are a lot of cops who shouldn't be.
