    Many of the "stops" are completely random. Play subservient and stupid, like a USSR citizen if they stop you. When they have you singled out is not the time to challenge their misbegotten power. Ultimately, the intention is to humiliate and "break" the citizens. Many of the goons get off on the power trip.

    Realistically, chances are extremely small that you are going to be more than inconvenienced (and scared and frustrated and angered). It only looks easy in the movies.

    "...just ordinary people, you know, people who are not famous, if they get together, if they persist, if they defy the authorities, they can defeat the largest corporation in the world. - Howard Zinn
