In Re H.H. (Cal. Ct. App. - June 1, 2009)

Just a little hint: When you're riding a bike, minding your own business, and the police stop you because you don't have the proper lighting equipment thereupon (and, yeah, I'm sure that was their real concern), the first words out of your mouth should not be to proclaim: "I'm not on probation." Because, my friend, such a sua sponte statements tends to -- oh, I don't know -- maybe raise a little suspicion about what the heck's up with you. Like maybe we should pat you down and find that loaded gun in your jacket, eh?
