It doesnt matter if you answer the clowns questions politely or not. It is up to the individual clown to determine if your answers or actions are suspicious enough to warrant futher search and questioning.
Real terrorist know this and will practice to answer questions politely and as specific as possible to achieve their end goal.
For a border agent or cop to say that someone seemed supicious is just bullshit. Most people although innocent get nervous around these asses.
These asses don't have a clue what they are doing and are just playing the law of average. Every now and then, they pick some poor soul and decide to make their lives a living hell.
The ass in the video stated they catch 3 terrorist in a day. How many real credible terrorist does your law of average allow to pass through in a day?
Once they've ran your documents and everything is in order, everything else they do is bullshit.
Your post just goes to show how little you know. The border guards aren't there to make you feel comfortable and be nice to you. You seriously think "running documents" is all they need to do? Do you think drug runners, human traffickers, and terrorists, have a stamp on their passports that say "criminal"?
Just like a criminal psychologist, they are able to ask questions in specific ways, and based on answers determine potentially dangerous behavior or someone who is trying to hide something. Everyone has a "tell".
The whole reason they are dicks at the border, and why they ask ridiculous questions is because it gets people agitated and heightens their natural involuntary defensive mechanisms. Certain mannerisms and ways in which people answer can give a very specific insight into their overall intentions. And unless someone is a psychopath, these "tells" are something a human body doesn't control, and will naturally appear when confronted with an unusual line of questioning and aggressive behavior from the guard. Lie detectors work under the same principal. All they do is monitor some of those exact same body functions to determine if someone is lying or not. They are things most people can't control.
If you just answer the questions, and suck it up for a few minutes of dealing with a guy doing his job, then you'll be fine, and let through. Otherwise, if you don't like it, then you don't have to go to their country. There's plenty of shopping in Canada.
