I would call it being interviewed. An interview is with both party's talking to each other. An interrogation is more severe, usually when being detained.
You said he was not detained, does that mean he could have just walked away? What is the correct term for what happened.
Since doobie was doing nothing illegal, doobie was free to go, and doobie knew that all along.
doobie was not free to go. therefore he was detained.
Being free to go at any time was not an interrogation. Obviously, your version of the word is different than mine.
he was interrogated.
You call that harassment? Get real man. Asking someone questions that they can answer freely or not is far from harassment.
and he was harassed.
Actually he was not. While I do not in anyway condone the speech used by the officer, he was not verbally assaulted. Using cuss-words to describe a gun or a town is not verbal assault...at least not in this part of the country.
not to mention verbally assaulted.
I am under no illusions. Why would a thug protect me? Now there is a straw man argument.
do you stand up for the thugs in hopes that they will protect you when you need it?
Ah I see. You have had "encounters" with your local police so you are an expert on how they behave everywhere. I get it now. Of course the cops with tell you that they are not there to protect you. Saying anything different would be a lie.
I have had enough encounters with my local police department to know that they are not there to protect anyone. i know enough cops who have told me exactly the same.
Wrong. A crime does not have to be committed for an interview. An interview can be done on a witness to a crime. They did not commit the crime. An interview could be as simple as you walking down the street and me asking you whats up. No crime has been committed.
Interrogation or questioning is interviewing as commonly employed by officers of the police and military.
The interviewee is also referred to as a "source". It is used for getting information from a suspect, witness or victim after a crime has been committed.
Interviewing is not necessarily to force a confession, but rather to develop sufficient rapport as to prompt the source to disclose valuable information
An interrogation is when I have arrested you and you are sitting in a room by yourself. The camera is recording you. I walk in and start asking you questions. You are not free to leave, you may or may not be in cuffs. Yes it is accusatory, otherwise you would not be there to be interrogated.
Interrogation is accusatory in nature, and the suspect is told that they committed the offense, and presented with facts to obtain a confession
Asking for an ID is not an interrogation, now matter how much you would like it to be. Asking where you are going is not an interrogation.Asking why you are wearing a gun is not an interrogation.
Understand just one thing. If you act like a jerk, you will be treated like a jerk. Cops deal with jerks all day long, its nothing new.
