I'd say the cops handled that pretty well. They gave the guy every opportunity to comply, and he refused. When he began to physically resist, they used their Tasers which is exactly what they were designed for.

Jaywalking, dude. Jaywalking.

A two sentence lecture would have easily sufficed. We pay these morons to fight (real) crime, not to be pissant thugs.

Maybe they did follow the correct procedure, but that seems like an awful lot for jaywalking.

I did the people of Fark a great favor today.

I re-watched the video, and actually counted the number of times that the lady yelled "GET YOUR SUPERVISOR!"

The magic number?

40.

Am I required to give my ID to a police officer when asked to do so?

Am I required to identify myself with my name and date of birth?

No, we pay them to enforce the law. All of it. They didn't taze the guy for jaywalking, they used tazers to subdue him after he refused to provide identification.

They did just fine.

Of course, in OTHER news: Peurifoy and Price were first stopped by the police after they crossed State Road 436 at a crosswalk while the pedestrian light was red, police said.

And, BOY, doesn't that piss me off when pedestrians feel so self-entitled that, hey, I'm a pedestrian. I don't care if there's a red hand on that light, the cars have to stop for ME!

Yeah, go fark yourself, buddy.

...

Maybe the cops did the right thing, after all.
 
2012-07-12 11:04:17 AM
Hell, now, the more I think of it, maybe the guy refused to tell the cops his name and/or hand over his ID because he felt he has such an embarrassing last name.

I know I would.

The officers stopped the pair outside a nearby Amscot store and asked for their IDs, but police say Peurifoy refused, which is against the law.

if all you are doing is walking around...I don't think the cops can demand to see your ID. This is a quick run down on what to do if stopped by the cops. they can demand your ID, you can refuse and ask to leave. if the cops want to hold you, they have to arrest you first...and then things change quite a bit. Basically - if the cops stop you, STFU. don't argue, don't be aggressive. be firm, be polite and above all - BE SILENT.

it can vary by state but...in general, no - the cops can't simply stop you and demand your ID. you can refuse to answer questions, (politely!) ask to leave and then walk away and the cops can do anything about it. in some states you have to tell them your name if asked but that's about it. as far as I know (and my quick and dirty google search says) NO state can stop and demand your identification. you can always refuse and then make sure you aren't under arrest, then leave if you aren't arrested.

I know this is already being discussed, but I find it to be the most objectionable part of the story. It is this that directly lead to the tazing. Is that the law in Florida? As far as I understand it, in most places you can't be forced to provide ID, you are only required to identify yourself with your name and, possibly, your address. What if you don't have ID or don't have it on you? Can they just taze you?

Quick CSB time:
That being said, my few encounters with Miami-Dade police show them to be assholes. My girlfriend and about a dozen other people got pepper sprayed when officers decided to use it to subdue someone while they were standing in a 10' x 10' alcove. We were sitting outside and got caught in the cloud that came out. She ended up doubled over and unable to open her eyes. This resulted in a lot of yelling and me calling them farking idiots. They threatened to arrest me, I asked on what charge, "being in the way of your pepper spray? I'd like to see you explain that to your supervisor." or something like that. They decided against doing so.

Every law, no matter how minor, carries with it the possibility of violence, up to and including fatal violence.

Every law considered should be considered with this in mind. No law should ever be passed that we are not willing to kill someone for during the execution of that law.


A lot of people, especially lawmakers, don't farking get this.

What are you talking about? The jaywalker was 7 feet tall and 300 pounds of muscle. There was no way to bring the criminal into custody more safely than to jolt him repeatedly with thousands of volts.

We all know that jaywalking is a gateway crime. First you cross the street when the light is red, next you're running a prostitution ring and executing the immigrants you pay to package and transport the heroin you're trafficking.

If you commit a crime, no matter how minor (in this case it was crossing against the signal), then the police have every right to ID you. If you refuse, they have every right to arrest you. Your "stay silent and walk away" nonsense is what leads to such messes.

Also, the cops don't have to arrest you for an investigation. That's called investigative detention and doesn't kick into effect the same rules and procedures that an actual arrest would.

If you are witnessed committing a crime (crossing against the signal) by the police then you have to provide your ID when it is requested...if you don't have one on you then you have to provide your pertinent information.

um...no. sorry - but at most, some states require that you give your name. NO cop can stop you and demand your identification. you can always refuse, ask if you are under arrest and if you aren't under arrest, you are free to leave.

Also, the cops don't have to arrest you for an investigation. That's called investigative detention and doesn't kick into effect the same rules and procedures that an actual arrest would.

I live in IN as well. It's my understanding that we are required by law to have ID on us at all times (when not on private property, and other various exceptions blah blah blah). So if we are stopped and that information is requested, not having it is breaking a law right away. As mentioned by Weaver: I think you are allowed to decline and leave if you are not under arrest...but as you are required to have ID, I'd say this then becomes a problem.
I'm not really sure why people need to make a big deal out of it anyway. Just give them the damned info and they go away, seriously...really don't see why it's so hard. Zap him once for me!

And this attitude is exactly why we have 60+ year old women being tased by a 30 year old 6' male cop. Tasers are supposed to be a LAST resort for people on PCP etc. Not just because they won't lay down and listen to an idiot.

You have to provide your information if you've just committed a crime. If you want to remain silent, that's certainly an option, but the police are then legally justified in taking you to the jail until you decide to identify yourself.

That is incorrect.

Police are paid to keep public order. The law is merely the cudgel they are allowed to wield in order to keep that public order.

Unfortunately too many cops have forgotten that fact or believe, as you do, that their job is to enforce every law all the time. The resulting deaths of dogs, deaths of innocent citizens, tazering of innocent citizens, and over-reactions like the one in tfv have had the counterproductive effect of making the public increasingly suspicious and wary of the police.

WHat used to be "to protect and serve" has rapidly become "us vs them" in the eyes of many police and many "civilians". As I said....counterproductive to their supposed mission of "protect and serve"

You are confusing Miranda, which is read AFTER an arrest, with some made up right to refuse to identify yourself to an officer so that he can write you a citation.

And they have the right to let you sit in jail until you identify yourself so that they can fill out the ticket. Do you really think that if you get pulled over for speeding you can just stay silent and not hand over your ID and they will magically let you go?
