Doesn't matter if you are doing something wrong or not. It is intrusive and shouldn't be allowed. We are innocent UNTIL proven guilty. I don't think someone has to give their name unless probable cause exists. I'd never do that as an officer.Originally posted by: MartyMcFly3
Why is it a big deal to give them your name? If you aren't doing anything illegal, then you have nothing to hide, so why not tell them your name? You tell a whole bunch of people it whether you realize it or not. Its in the phonebook (unless you are unlisted). They aren't stealing your identity by asking it...Originally posted by: Vic
What do you mean? This has always been an issue to me. If I am driving a car, I can understand why an officer would need to see my drivers license, but not if I am just walking down the street or otherwise going about my lawful business.Originally posted by: FallenHero
Yes, stealing it is a crime. But I dont think the police ask for your name to steal your Identity. Tell me, why is this an issue NOW and not 2 years ago? 4 months ago? Yesterday?
