Seems pretty simple to me.


I will of course comply with commands made that are required by law. After all, I am a law-abiding citizen. I would probably comply even if it's not a legal requirement if I feel it's in my best interest to do so. It's my choice to make. Whether I choose to comply with commands that I am not legally required to comply with is up to me, and I would expect an officer of the law to respect (or at least accept) my choice, and not make unnecessary (and illegal) trouble for me simply because he may see me as a "radical."
