Man files complaint against police - so they raid his home and seize his wife
You just can't make this stuff up. Until they eliminate qualified immunity, or, at the very require that you must have an IQ which exceeds your shoe size to work as a police officer, this kind of crap will continue.
On fucking camera. These morons have no idea whats coming down the pike.
longer than most cops have been alive, that they cannot compel an ID unless they have Reasonable, Articulable, Suspicion of a Crime, that has been committed, is being committed, or will be committed, by the person they are seeking to ID. The suspicion must be based on specific, objective, facts.
Brown v Texas, 443 U.S. 47 (1979).
Why do they so crave ID? They will tell you its to figure out whats going on (the ID wont tell them that), to see if you are OK (it wont), for their report (not your responsibility). They really want it to run you for warrants in the hopes of an easy arrest to bolster their statistics.

occupation holds. It undermines the constitutional rights of every person in this country.
