any questions from the police. they keep repeating AM I BEING DETAINED? AM I FREE TO GO?
i'm curious. have any of you ever carried it that way when dealing with the police? so far most of the people in the videos are white so if you've done this, i'm curious to know how it worked out for you and if you're white.

Cops gave us a hard time for about 45 minutes but let us go once it was clear our friend was just being a dumbass & he could tell that the other 3 of us that were in the car wanted to whoop the other friends ass for it. Cop was cool too until the friend pulled that stuff.

They mostly want to observe your demeanor as you answer a basic question - you should know where you are going and be able to answer without drama if everything is cool. If you're hiding something you may answer oddly. Based on how you answer they may begin to develop reasonable suspicion of criminal conduct that might lead to follow up investigation. Or not. They usually don't care where you are going or where you came from.
