Well, if you can point me to something that spells that out I'd happily agree but everything I've looked at indicates what I said above. I can't even find a single definition of "lawful order" in any penal code or other official place, despite the fact that the penal codes are filled with the phrase. Everything I read basically says that you must do what a LEO says to do unless the action ordered is itself unlawful. There are, of course, exceptions and specifics that have been clarified by courts but, generally speaking, it seems that a "Do this..." is a "lawful order".
