Here’s another video of an armed government worker enforcing the non-existent law of “suspicion.” It’s a law thats not on the books, but you’ve probably heard of it by now. It is in the same book as “officer safety” and “stop resisting.”
All are used by AGWs to justify their illegal actions – in this instance, pressuring a man taking video of things in public view from a public right-of-way to produce ID, which – as the man attempts to convey to the AGW – he is not legally obliged to do unless the AGW can adduce some plausible/specific crime he suspects the targeted person of having committed or which appears to be on the cusp of committing.
The AGW confuses that legal requirement with “suspicion” – also known as “someone called.”
This – in the mind of an AGW – serves as a kind of substitute for pesky legal requirements. More than that, actually.
For an AGW, there is no law except the law he confects on the spot, according to his whim and his affronted sense of his Authority and entitlement to automatic deference from a Mundane.
This AGW is eventually schooled by another AGW – but note that the second AGW does not arrest the first AGW for illegally accosting the man, threatening him and detaining him under duress.
Hut! Hut! Hut!
