They have a hard enough job to attend to and the last thing they need is a smartass, put yourself in their position. I respect the man behind those uniforms and if I can make their life a little easier by cooperating why not? violating my rights? are you kidding? As far as dealing with cops a simple polite yes or no will be sufficient unfortunately some people tend to get mouthy and technical after watching a few episodes of CSI, I've seen a few here outside my work that definitely need to get their rights violated (at least if I'm the responding officer) fortunately the men/women in blue that often respond to these disturbance by these shitheads are a lot calmer.
