No matter what a cop tells you to do, just do it. If his demand was unlawful you can survive the encounter, with only a little damage to your ego, to face him in court at a later date.
Or, so sayeth the copsuckers.
Unfortunately, this belief of theirs ignores reality.
The main problem isn't even that the courts are controlled by the same gang, and will give the cop every benefit of the doubt, while viewing you as an enemy.
Sometimes, cops are delusional and irrational, and dangerous to decent beings. OK, not just "sometimes".
Once, years ago, I was picking up lunch from Taco Bell for myself and co-workers. Right at the entrance there had been a minor fender bender, and a cop was directing traffic.
I stopped and waited for my turn. The cop looked directly at me, pointed at me, and then waved me through. I turned into the lot and parked.
As I got out of my car, here came the cop (leaving his apparently non-essential duties). He was red-faced and screaming at me.
He said something along the lines of "Next time a police officer gives you directions, you had better follow them!"
I didn't even know what he was talking about, and admitted my confusion.
He claimed to have clearly indicated for me to wait. That's NOT what I saw, and (perhaps unwisely) I said so. I've rarely seen such an angry individual, and the truth didn't calm him down one bit. Strange beast.
But, to the best of my ability, I had done exactly what he told me to do. He was either daydreaming and not paying attention to what he was doing, or he changed his mind. Or he was lying.
I survived. Not everyone is as lucky.
Yes, cops are scum, and you can't always expect to survive just because you obey their insane demands. Sometimes you may have to defend yourself from these gangsters. When that day comes, good luck to you.
