Big cops love to intimidate.
I got stopped, many years ago, for something I forget... open carry, if I remember correctly. The statement was, "You can be arrested for..." whatever. I held out my empty hands and replied, "If I am under arrest, I wish to speak to my lawyer that you provide for me. Am I free to go?" I was not arrested.
Remember: cops are allowed to intimidate. They are also allowed (and WILL) lie to you. They are allowed to threaten to arrest you for something that is not illegal. They just CAN'T arrest you for it. Keep that all in mind.

If you are driving or in a police regulated place (bars, entertainment events), then you are required to present ID. But if you are on a sidewalk walking... and have not committed or are not about to commit a crime, you cannot be compelled to produce formal identification nor answer questions.
