Never had any reason to be anything other than respectful and cooperative (when dealing with an LEO in a professional setting)

Then again, I've worked with LE agencies for over 30 years so maybe I have a particular mindset.......

Define "speak your mind". Do you mean like the traffic stops on you tube?

Would you speak your mind to a Cop?
You have the right to remain silent.......

Anything you say CAN AND WILL be used against you.....

With that, I say **** NO.

I'm respectful as well. But that sure as hell doesn't mean I'll speak my mind or act like their best buddy.....as they often try and act with people they are "helping".

that's a pretty "vague" request. Speaking your mind could take many forms. I experienced lots and lots of people who spoke their minds. Most did it in a frustrated non-condescending manner . . .

I've never been given reason to HAVE to speak my mind...maybe that's more succinct?

I tried that once

With his pen and ticket book out, he said:
Buddy my pen has more ink, than your checking account has cash now we can go all day
I shut the **** up

Not sure if this is real or not....but that's an attitude I've experienced in the past.

******** with power and not afraid to abuse it (not all, but most definitely some). THAT is why you don't speak your mind to a cop. Never, ever, speak your mind to someone with the power to take your freedom or legally steal your money. It's not honorable, it's just foolish.

The only thing I've told the police on the rare occasion that I'm stopped is that I have a CCW (which they prob already know). I put my hands on the steering wheel and if its at night I turn on the interior lights...

Making them feel safe goes a long way - beyond that its best to keep quiet..

Been there myself (here in OR, when they run your plate, it comes back that you have a CCW, if you do.)

In fact, having one has gotten me off with just a warning on more than one occasion

This.
Keep your mouth shut and go to court. Had an *** cop lie about a traffic infraction. He wrote me a ticket, I laughed and said OK. "Whats so funny? You'll see in 45 days. Met in pretrial, my video proved he lied, got a letter dismissing the ticket due to "lack of evidence and/or officer no longer with the dept"

there's a real good chance that if you're not an ******* to start the pen will probably not come out at all. Just try being civil . . .

I too do the same exact thing Frankie. In my 54 yrs and my 38-40 yrs of driving ( yes I started young) I have never ever given a Police Officer attitude. Probably why I have never been arrested or seen the inside of a jail cell.

Most of my friends are LEO, FEDS, State bureau type Officers.

I could share a conversation that I had w one of my FED buddies about Cohen.... That one almost came to blows... lol
