When confronted by law enforcement…

Continuing the discussion of the appropriate demeanor when confronted by law enforcement, unexpectedly, it is important to be cognizant of your rights.
Again, be calm and respectful.
You are required to identify yourself to the point of showing an ID.
You are not required to explain where you have been or where you are going.
If you are asked to step out of the car, your liberty is being restrained, which equates with an arrest whether the officer says you are being arrested or not.
You should remain calm and comply.
Do not answer any questions other than to identify yourself.
Anything you say from that point can be used against you in a court of law.
The officer does not have to tell you why they are asking you to do what they are asking.
The officer does not have to tell you why you are being detained.
Remember you cannot win on the street. You can win in the courtroom if you keep your words and emotions under control. Do not let the matter escalate.

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a nonprofit organization of conservative state legislators and private sector representatives that drafts and shares model state-level legislation for distribution among state governments in the United States.[2][3][4]

ALEC provides a forum for state legislators and private sector members to collaborate on model bills—draft legislation that members may customize and introduce for debate in their own state legislatures.[5][6][7] ALEC has produced model bills on a broad range of issues, such as reducing regulation and individual and corporate taxation, combating illegal immigration, loosening environmental regulations, tightening voter identification rules, weakening labor unions and opposing gun control.[8][9][10][11] Some of these bills dominate legislative agendas in states such as Arizona, Wisconsin, Colorado, Michigan, New Hampshire, and Maine.[12] Approximately 200 model bills become law each year.[8][13] ALEC also serves as a networking tool among state legislators, allowing them to research conservative policies implemented in other states.[10] Many ALEC legislators say the organization converts campaign rhetoric and nascent policy ideas into legislative language.[5]

ALEC’s activities, while legal,[14] received public scrutiny after being reported by liberal groups in 2011 and after news reports from outlets such as The New York Times and Bloomberg Businessweek described ALEC as an organization that gave corporate interests outsized influence.[8][9] Resulting public pressure led to a number of legislators and corporations withdrawing from the organization.
