Most places have a vagrancy law. You are considered a vagrant if you do not possess proof of an address, usually with an ID card of some sort like a driver license.
Too many people, when asked for their name, lie about it and claim they don't have ID on them. Vagrant and they go to jail.

Why? Will they suddenly not be a vagrant when they get out? Do you really need to be punished for not having any place to live? (Sorry, not "shooting" the messenger, here. You're just telling it like it is.)

I sorta see proving who you are when you fly. Even more so when you vote. However, to walk out to the front gate in your bath robe to retrieve the newspaper, should you be required to have ID? An ID to just to walk down the street?? If you break a law, they can throw you in jail for it even if they don't know your name. If they really want to know if you have a record, they have your finger prints. We've given our "protectors" an awful lot of power over us. Could we regret that someday?

I disagree if this is true.... again, I will have to spend some time looking it up, but unless the officer has a legal right (maybe probable cause), you do not have to give them your information... so what was it that caused them to ask in the first place
