In the video, Virginia police officer Don Daryl ( Badge #137) approached a Virginia man demanding Identification after he noticed him shadow boxing, next to a light pole. The man declined to hand over his ID because the officer couldn’t articulate a reasonable suspicion. However, The officer claims Rodriguez vs United States is a Supreme Court decision that give him the authority to detain whomever he wants but that’s not true.
The issue in “Rodriguez v. United States” was whether a dog search violated the defendant’s Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable seizures.
