Great post!
"It is still perfectly legal to be angry at officers who rush to treat you like a criminal though you're the one who's been subject to unwarranted aggression" It is certainly legal but is it prudent? Given that police have wide latitude in these situations, what's the point of agitating them? The likelihood that it improves one's situation is low and the downside of them ruining your day is real. Tactically, I would think one is better off saying 'yes sir, no sir, thank you sir, have a good day.' Ultimately, are people responding primarily for one's color or one's attitude? I don't think it's prudent to agitate people in such mundane situations.
