It's also disappointing to hear that being told he was not under 
arrest he didn't just ask for his stuff back and leave.

But really police intimidation is designed exactly to ensure that 
you give them more power over you than they actually have. I don't 
blame him at all, I probably would have done the same thing, despite 
knowing it was wrong.
