Here's What Experts Say to Do If You're Approached by Police

Police bodycam video of the arrest of a 21-year-old college student riding a bike is sparking fury and questions about the rights of cyclists. Genesis Hansen, a student at Oregon State University, was stopped by a cop after police say she was riding her bike the wrong way on the road right outside the campus. There was an intense 20-minute stand-off as cops asked her to identify herself. She was not legally required to provide identification, so she didn't. The situation escalated and she was placed under arrest.

Experts watching footage of the incident say the best way to defuse a situation is to "comply then complain." These experts say if you believe your rights were unfairly infringed upon, file a complaint later with the police department. What do you think about this?
