Though others will disagree, I will share my view...

I feel there are many that do not understand the differences between Consensual Encounters vs. Detentions, plus they also try to play "ego games" with others. In a consensual encouter a person is free to leave, and is not required to answer any questions generally, in that its just a conversation, like speaking to another person while waiting in line. A traffic stop is a detention, and a person (depending on the state) is required to identify, and follow lawful orders.

The person in the video asked if he was being "detained", and was "he free to leave" though it seems he was making a big deal out of it, and was probably seeking an encounter.
