    My argument is "you look like that other guy" is not reasonable grounds. How you still have not gotten that...

    Because its amazingly stupid. You look like our suspect is reasonable grounds according to law, the citizens advice bureau which I linked earlier and common sense.

    In fact, when they don't have a photo to hand and only have a vague description (for example, around six foot, white, wearing a grey hoodie [the grounds on which I was once asked to identify myself to police]) it's objectively 'reasonable grounds' because you match the description of their suspect ie a person they need to arrest so they're making a positive confirmation.

    What other grounds could they possibly have for such stops? They can't know your name unless you identify so if they're searching for a suspect and they see someone that looks like the suspect why is that not reasonable grounds to pull them up in your eyes? It's easy to sit and go 'nuh uh' but what actually is your logic here?
