I'm not totally familiar with these situations, but I would like to understand them, so please forgive my ignorance.
Was it because they politely asked "Am I free to go?", and said nothing more, that caused the officer's cordial response?
My assumption is that by asking this specific question they must let you go if they have no lawful reason to detain you. It's in the US Consitution,
We have a similar right in the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms (secure from unreasonable search & seizure) so I assume it would be a simliar
situation up here.
If all my assumptions are correct, then what is the point of these checkstops? Are they not unconsitutional?
