    Papers Please!

    It's not like the concern about being forced to produce "papers" is a non-issue.  Take, for example, the case of the teenager in Ohio who was arrested by police for not giving authorities his driver's license as proof of ID when they were questioning him about declining to show his store receipt to a loss prevent agent at a Circuit City store.  No, the teen had not committed any crime - except not show his receipt to a loss preventer - until, that is, he called the police when the store's staff tried to keep the family car from leaving the shopping center parking lot, as I read the story. Michael Righi was not driving a car, so why should he have to produce a drivers license, right?  Wrong.  At least wrong in Ohio, it seems.  Quite an adventure and his point about showing receipts when leaving a store is like a presumption of guilt, isn't lost on us either.  But being thrown in the klink after telling his name and address, but not backing it up with paperwork?  Where's the Constitution?
