    Video from Maine, how would you handle this encounter?

    In this case, would you have complied with the officer? Rattle off your arguments and case law like the OCer did, or would you have just zipped it and not said anything?

    just turn around and walk away ... if he stops you, then the cop has an issue .. no RAS here ... no lawful activity by the cop...

    the officer had already (unlawfully it appears) detained him and took his firearm. He was not free to leave.

    The main object of the officer talking to you is to keep you talking. Every answer leads to another question, every question directs more to criminal activity.
    "Just give me your first name, so we can be friendly" leads to "Do you live around here?"
    Do you live around here just leads to "what do you do for a living?"
    What do you do for a living just leads to 'what's your boss' name?"

    Officer Friendly is looking for reasonable suspicion of criminal activity
    Officer Friendly is looking for probable cause to make an arrest
    Officer Friendly is looking for a criminal
    .... Officer Friendly is looking at you.

    Answer ONLY the questions required of you for a Voluntary Encounter or Investigatory Detention according to the laws of your State.
    Disengage, disengage, disengage.

    Good on him for staying on point, asking "Do you suspect me of a crime?" again and again as the officer attempted to deflect and evade the question.

    There's only ONE reason for someone to attempt to evade a simple question like that, boys and girls, it's because the answer isn't something the officer wants to admit.
    Hammer the question, again and again and again.
