I see what people are saying about trying to be MR HELPFUL when it comes to law enforcement personnel
BUT you see they are looking for something to CHARGE you WITH or USE AGAINST you.
while you may feel like you have nothing to hide; a smart ass investigator with a sharp eye or grudge against you may be able to make something out of nothing.
All because of your own stupidity in letting them into your HOME to look for things like this or safety regs.
THEY ARE NOT THERE TO HELP YOU.
Believe what you want, but they already think you're the bad guy- fair or not. Their actions have proven this. They'll be an witness at your trial for the kids or whatever!
<--did not quite make eagle, only life. I have two brothers and a dad that are Eagle scouts.
Overzealous law enforcement can fathom all kinds of reasons your breaking the law. Just ask one about the law, few know it that well in my experience. Therefore they are uneducated and just doing the best job they can, which is typically half assed justice at best. Be the polite asshole who has rights. That's your only chance is to defend what is left.
You have no duty to prove your innocence. Don't be fooled by these morons posting on here. If people would only believe they have these rights (because they do!), law enforcement would not feel as though they can easily trample everyone's privacy. That's when I say, "no you can' t search my (insert). It's obvious you have no probable cause , or you would not be asking me"
"I am not interested in waiting for you and your team to trod through all of my belongings to prove I am innocent" "That isn't the way it works in the country, and you should know that"
Maybe if you can level with them , they will back off and just respect you. I doubt that , but hey everyone else has the pipe dream that after they inch around your house they'll just go away too. Some of the men that died for these rights would probably cry for what this country has become.
