Today around 10am, I was on my way to my dentist appointment which is a 5-8 minute walk from my house, I was stopped by the police. It started out as me talking on the phone with my friend and I also had headphones on so I couldn't really hear my surroundings so out the corner of my eye, I seen the grill of a black car pull up beside me real fast which put me on alert but I assumed it was someone parking their car and I just kept walking then 5 seconds later, the car drove in front of me and on the car which put me so I told myself that i need to defend myself so something is about to happen and all of a sudden 3 officers get out the car and I asked them "are y'all looking for something?" One of the officers said "You didn't hear calling you?" I said no because I had headphones on, then he said "what's in the bag? It looks heavy by the way you were caring it". I told them "The bag wasn't heavy at all. It was really light and it was windy so I tried to keep my duffle bag centered so it wouldn't be blowing all crazy". The officer said "I'm going to need to feel the bag" so I was nervous and let him feel it and the other officer ask for my ID and wrote some stuff down in a note pad.
Pedestrians must produce id in the same manner as motorists. The police, however, must have a reasonble suspicion to have stopped you
