does anyone know this information. if i do research it. i'm more then glad to share the info as well...
but can you be arrested for not having an i.d.? someone stole my wallet a few weeks back, and i have yet to get a new one. i was just hassled in st. louis, but the cop just let us go. i was just wondering for future reference.Regardless of what anyone tells you, you are required to give a cop your identification in all 50 states. I don't care who tells you different or what you've read on the internet about it. Anyone on here that wants to argue with me about it I'm not gonna waste my time. A cop needs nothing in order to be able to ask for your id and only probable cause in order to search your possessions. Probable cause consists of anything the cop wants to say made you look suspicious.
Yeah I know SF helps you get your BC and ID, but right now i have no form of ID. besides my information. I should get one, but I don't know about the process of getting my SSC and BC without even having proof of who I am. It's kind of a fucked up situationbest bet is just to get another ID asap. i finally got a new one here in sf
Santa rosa is the same way we just got accused last night of being on meth and shit and were not the cop was just an ass hole at first tell he ran our names and we have no warrents out here then he was chill. But yeah he sat there and implied that we are homeless which yeah but we have been staying at a place that took us in. We were spanging but he said we were on meth and all kinds of shitLiving proof of all the above. A cop asked for my I.D most likely because I looked suspicious cuz I had a shirt with a bunch of studs on it and a skateboard and where I was I REALLY didnt fit in. I said I didnt have one he searched me because I was acting suspicious he found it and I taken in. Good plan if you're looking for a free meal. I then told the cop that I was a vegan and had been for years and if I eat any animal biproducts that I would get really sick because my body wasnt used to it, so they let me go haha. In reality I'm not vegan, and I'll admit it I'm not strong enough to do it I just didnt want to stay in jail I had a party to go to that night.
To answer your question, YES it is a crime; both state and federal. Now, generally, they'll just take you in and hold you (legally) for up to 72 hours to run your prints (which NCIC takes about an hour or so) and then release you. The can; however, charge you for failure to present identification. Two theories here: First under Terry v Ohio the controlling caselaw for inquiry before detention), the 4th Amendment controls the police discretion, so you might have a fight IF they charge you; and the other theory (which controls, by-and-large today) is the Patriot Act and Patriot Act II Pub.L. 107-56. You're not going to win. And here's the kicker: run your game of no id on the streets and the law is just going to hold you 72 hours, at most. Run it on the tracks and get asshole? Under Pub.L. 107-56 they can hold you until you die because your right to habeas corpus is suspended! In theory, you're on that train to derail it with a tanker of HCl inside a metro area.but can you be arrested for not having an i.d.? someone stole my wallet a few weeks back, and i have yet to get a new one. i was just hassled in st. louis, but the cop just let us go. i was just wondering for future reference.
