Ok, I thought he had his badge clipped on or something and he knew he was a cop. We're on the same page now
It doesn't matter if he had a badge clipped to his suit. That's what you don't seem to be getting.
I’ll say it again, people who don’t know their rights in any civilian-law enforcement interaction deserve whatever they get. That goes for citizens being detained, under arrest, or during just casual contact with police on a public street.
Know when it’s casual contact and know when you are being detained. The simplest way to determine that is to simply ask. ONCE AGAIN, if you’re not being detained, you have no legal obligation to answer questions, give your name, or produce ID.
So, in review…
Tomorrow, if you are “stopped” on the street by a cop IN UNIFORM and he starts asking you questions or asks for your ID, what are going to be the first words out of your mouth?
Yes to me it matters...if he didn't think he was a cop then he was an idiot for giving his ID to a stranger. If he knew he was a cop, he might have reasonably thought he was being detained and therefore complied

Instead of making videos, maybe his time would be better spent watching them -- particularly those that talk about citizen rights during police encounters. There are a ton of them.
That way, he can be a "reasonable" person and be "reasonably" informed.

Also, the guy obviously knew in advance that Nanny Bloomberg has a NYPD security detail. He purposely went there to confront the mayor over that fact. So shouldn’t a guy who plans to troll Bloomberg about employing a security detail know beforehand what his rights are when he comes into contact with said security detail?
Just asking. Not that I think the guy is a dumbass or anything.
I'm still wondering what "hypocrasy" is?
