Apos: Would a laminated library card suffice?
Relatively Obscure: I guess I'd end up getting my ass kicked handily and arrested :(I'm a pretty cooperative and compliant kind of dude, but no.
timujin: Relatively Obscure: I guess I'd end up getting my ass kicked handily and arrested :(I'm a pretty cooperative and compliant kind of dude, but no.This."If you're out walking, we're going to stop you, ask why you're out walking, check for your ID."And I'm going to say, "because I can" and "No, you can't see my ID"And then get my ass kicked handily and arrested, I'm sure.
Raharu: They have those weapons thanks to the war on drugs....
Dancin_In_Anson: Next, the populace is disarmed...for the children.
thomps: "To ask you for your ID, I have to have a reason," he said. "Well, I've got statistical reasons that say I've got a lot of crime right now, which gives me probable cause to ask what you're doing out. Then when I add that people are scared...then that gives us even more [reason] to ask why are you here and what are you doing in this area."uh, i don't think that's how probable cause works.

Darth_Lukecash: Oh? I thought this would be the exact thing you'd like- a no nonsense, if you are innocent you've done nothing to fear style law enforcement.This is a red state southern strategy facism showing its ugly head.
thomps: uh, i don't think that's how probable cause works.
BunkoSquad: Hmmm, I wonder if there will be a racial element to enforcement of this
scottydoesntknow: BunkoSquad: Hmmm, I wonder if there will be a racial element to enforcement of thisWhat racial element? The city is 98% white.
ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: "They may not be doing anything but walking their dog," he said. "But they're going to have to prove it."Ah, yes; the central tenet of our justice system, guilty until proven innocent.
revrendjim: The correct answer is "That's none of your business. Am I being detained? Am I free to leave now?"
BronyMedic: thomps: uh, i don't think that's how probable cause works.Reading Arkansas State law, you don't need probible cause to do a stop and identify. 5-71-213 provides that anyone suspected of loitering in an area can be stopped and asked to identify themselves with their State ID.(a) A person commits the offense of loitering if he or she:(1) Lingers, remains, or prowls in a public place or the premises of another without apparent reason and under circumstances that warrant alarm or concern for the safety of persons or property in the vicinity and, upon inquiry by a law enforcement officer, refuses to identify himself or herself and give a reasonably credible account of his or her presence and purpose;(2) Lingers, remains, or prowls in or near a school building, not having any reason or relationship involving custody of or responsibility for a student and not having written permission from anyone authorized to grant permission;(3) Lingers or remains in a public place or on the premises of another for the purpose of begging;(4) Lingers or remains in a public place for the purpose of unlawful gambling;(5) Lingers or remains in a public place for the purpose of engaging or soliciting another person to engage in prostitution or deviate sexual activity;(6) Lingers or remains in a public place for the purpose of unlawfully buying, distributing, or using a controlled substance;(7) Lingers or remains in a public place for the purpose of unlawfully buying, distributing, or consuming an alcoholic beverage;(8) Lingers or remains on or about the premises of another for the purpose of spying upon or invading the privacy of another; or(9) Lingers or remains on or about the premises of any off-site customer-bank communication terminal without any legitimate purpose.(b) Among the circumstances that may be considered in determining whether a person is loitering are that the person:(1) Takes flight upon the appearance of a law enforce ...
Revek: This sounds like bullshiat. Just one trip to the judge will give little hitler there a crimp in his mein kampf. Unless of course he avoids the people he knows can beat him about the head with a lawyer.

Unless of course he avoids the people he knows can beat him about the head with a lawyer.Your assumption is that the "good judge" in charge of the court in Paragould will give a shiat.If you've ever been there (I have.), you'll find it's not the case. In that corner, once you get out of Jonesboro, the cops and the courts are slimy. Hell, I've never heard of a city department being prohibited BY THE STATE from speed trapping until I heard about Tyronza.
