Agree 100% here. I've found in all my dealings with police over the years that the coolest head wins. Make the other person look like the raving lunatic and you got it made. lol
Even works with judges. Faught a ticket years ago and I just calmly stated my side of the story while the PO stammered, referred to his notes and changed his story. Judge let me off and chewed the officer a new one in front of the whole court, said he needed lessons in professionalism. I could barely contain myself but after the courtroom door closed behind me I let out a "WHOO HOOO!" that I know everyone inside heard.
