She shouldn't have given up her ID. With my ID, they could see that I have a CHL and escalate the confrontation. They were trying to get her caught up in her own words.

I noticed they cut the initial contact from the footage...it starts with him asking her to pull up and over. Why would they cut the initial contact out?

Just curious...

She is one of those..... The officer tells her she is not free to go and is detained, and she keeps asking the question.

"Look at me, I'm acting stupid on youtube".

I don't think it is stupid to refuse to be illegally searched and detained.

Rights not exercised are rights lost

maybe she could have handled it better, but overall I won't throw stones

Since she is at a BP check station I would say she is with in 50 miles of a border, which is a constitution free zone. Technically I believe she has no rights,

I agree that she shouldn't have shown her ID. From what I gather she should have asked if they were detaining her under suspicion of a violation or crime and, if so, what that violation was. They walked the sniffers around her car and came up empty so why do they have the right to force her to pull over and submit to a search?

I think she could have handled it better and not continue to parrot the same three lines over and over again...

I'm curious though - when they asked her if she (and her passenger) were U.S. citizens how do they verify that? I don't know too many people that walk around with their naturalization papers or birth certificate to prove their citizenship...
