As to your other question about being put on the hood of a car, if I don't follow the officer's instructions, act belligerent, etc, you're damn right they can do that.
Most cops - and most rational people - won't get to that extreme. Most cops are going to know that a guy walking down the street is likely just a guy walking down the street. And the guy walking down the street generally isn't going to become a blithering idiot like the guy in this video.
Now, you take that circumstance, and put a gun in an operational-ready position and it changes the whole game.
Earlier I stated that I've seen your posts and believed you to be smarter than you were demonstrating. You're doing a good job of showing me that I may have been wrong in that sentiment.
What case law supports a stop and frisk unless an officer witnesses suspicious behavior?
Just walking down the street. Some old lady calls because she doesn't recognize him. Officer arrives. Still just walking.
What case law says he can be detained and put on the hood of a car if he declines to stop and answer questions?

Getting to the point now, IF more of society were just like you are (and lets not forget CF in this) in your law enforcement grudge. I would spite the Constitution and do everything in my power to see that your protections were stripped away as soon as possible. I would do this just to throw it in your face because I could. I LOVE the Constitution BTW, I just really dislike dirtbags like yourself. -- BlackPaladin
