Of course problems arise when the police threaten to spuriously bring a charge against you, as happened in the case of Byron Sonne. Now, I’m not a lawyer, but it seems to me that since the police got away with using this ruse against >Byron Sonne, isn’t the the effect that any police officer can now threaten or even lay frivolous charges against any citizen and force an identification?
What I wonder is if Canadians have been stripped of this right? — laurelrusswurm
