Although not in CT. This is a video you may have seen of a similar situation. He produces no id. Not required to.Mr. Ridleyis required to correctly identify himself. He is not required to "prove" his identity. Now in CT you would have to prove you have a CT permit to carry pistols and revolvers if asked- due to open carry in this instance, (I believe.) Now the guy being "Detained" (Mr. Ridly)is acting fine. The other clown is possibly walking a fine line of interfering. This video would be of a greater educational value without the second "non-involved" party.
I truly believe this situation was valuable in instantly educating the entire police force of this town. I would bet a memo was circulated informing all officers how to handle these situations.
FWIW, The officer getting all pissy about people blocking the sidewalk and trying to look to see if the signs on the pole belonged to these guys, (They belonged to a girl scout troop) show a lack of respect for the common citizens. That part annoyed me. They simply could have shaken the man's hand and said "carry on"
