This is the part where some clueless, gutless sheep always says, "... you have to always show them respect and kiss their ass no matter what the circumstances". A 16 y/o kid working at McDonald's deals with a difficult customer by being polite and professional, but if you're a cop, you get to use your power to fuck that person over. Case in point was a story recently relayed by a friend of mine: Pulled over for a bullshit ticky-tack reason, stops drags on and on, fishing expediation with all his paperwork, lots of questions, etc. Eventually conversation gets heated, tempers rise, etc. As things are finally winding down, cops says to him, "there might be a warrant for your arrest, I need you to follow me to the station". At the station, he has him sit and wait in his car in the parking lot for 40 minutes before finally coming out and saying, "Nope. No warrant. You can leave now".
