i was taught at a very young age that in order to avoid problems with the police, you should always follow their instructions, say 'yes sir/officer' or 'no sir/officer'. I can not say i always succeeded in that, but i never owned a gun and try to be aware, to the best of my ability, about what i can and can not get away with whatever the circumstances.
