I think you misunderstand my method a bit..... No real spook would make a scene, they would try to escape at the first hint of trouble. I plan to call almost no attention to myself. My intent is to sit quietly in the corner (back to the wall), drink my purchased coffee and work with the laptop. Most of my internet traffic will be via VPN, with a few encrypted attachments sent through GMail from time to time. If approached, I will immediately power off the computer, collect up my cell phones and prepare to leave, while having as little contact with who ever approaches me as possible. If they demand to see my computer, I will eject the SD chip, surrender the computer to them, and depart without any argument or explanation, if they demand the SD chip I will attempt to destroy it. If they try to detain me, I will ask if they are sworn law enforcement officers, if they are not, I will leave. If they are sworn officers I will repeatedly ask if I am free to go, if I am arrested I will instantly demand a lawyer and answer no questions at all..... Yes, I intend to waste as much of their time as possible. I've used similar tactics before, and I've been arrested for it, several times. I will never post any bail, I have plenty of time for them to waste. I've been held for as long as 4 days for passing out pamphlets in front of our county courthouse, I'm not allowed to discuss the terms of the settlement. When I troll for pigs, I'm very careful to give them no excuse for their behavior, at all. I have the time to mess with them, so I will. My behavior protects honest working people by keeping these idiots busy. Most of the idiots in the field are far too stupid to catch real terrorists, messing with me is far safer for them, a real terrorist might hurt them..... And I do have a Geiger counter too, but that's a different hobby..... My digital camera hobby is more fun, cops hate to have their picture taken. The whole key to getting away with this tactic is having a perfectly clean criminal record, cash in the bank, and lawyers on retainer.... most cop intimidation tactics don't work on me..... in my 50 years, they have never been able to stick anything on me, I'll rot in jail before I take any plea deal, or pay any bail.
