Your Papers, Komrade
If you're caught speeding or playing your music too loud, or other crimes
for which you might receive a citation, Green Bay police officers will ask for
your drivers license and your finger. You'll be fingerprinted right there on the
spot. The fingerprint appears right next to the amount of the fine.
Police say it's meant to protect you -- in case the person they're
citing isn't who they claim to be. But not everyone is sold on that
Oh, thank goodness - it's for our protection.
Citizens do have the right to say no. "They could say no and not have to
worry about getting arrested," defense attorney Jackson Main said. "On the
other hand, I'm like everybody else. When a police officer tells me to do
something, I'm going to do it whether I have the right to say no or not."
Mr. Main need to read the 2nd post down from this one.
