Stopped and Asked For ID For No Reason

A few days ago, my friend and I were leaving some construction work in a small town called Nyack, NY. We started heading home when we passed a cop going the opposite direction. Before we got to the end of the road, he appeared behind us. At that point, we knew we were about to get stopped and harassed by the Orangetown, NY road pirates. We turned left and the lights and sirens went off and we pulled over. Before the thief could come to the window, my friend already had his license and registration ready; he gave it to him without even asking why he was stopped. After a few illegal questions like, “Where are you coming from?” and ” Where are you going?, he went back to his pirate ship to run my friend’s information. I recorded both interactions, but the first one was worthless. This is what he said when he returned to our car after about 10 minutes, during which time backup arrived.

Notice how he already assumed my friends license was no good. It’s terrible how we’re all guilty of something in their eyes….
