Interesting question. I am actually paranoid. I never break the law but I still feel like there might be something I'm missing and end up getting in trouble for. The thing that got me annoyed by police has to do with my hobby. I like doing photography of transit. Trains, trams, buses, etc. I know that filming is permitted in that transit system but I still get stopped and questioned by police. It's annoying. I even print the rules & regulations page from the transit system's website and carry it with me so I have proof.1

I feel protected, but to be fair, I'm a very non-threatening middle-class white female living in a low-crime area, and every interaction with the cops begins with that impression, so that's a definite influence.
I expect I'd be a lot more afraid of cops if I'd been born into different circumstances.2
