Maybe I've seen too many WW II and cold war movies ("Give me your papers"), but the idea kinda gives me the creeps.

Waaaaaay back in the late 50's, I was driving through North Beach in San Francisco with a buddy, when we ran into a police roadblock. We got pulled over. Nothing happened for a few minutes, while we sat in fear, because the SFPD had a reputation as a bunch of Fascists. And we were a couple of beardy beatniks.

Eventually a cop came up to my window and said, in a very noticeable German accent, "I was in Germany during the war. I don't like this any more than you do. Now get out of here."

We got out of there. Yeah, it's a totally creepy idea.
