So, people wonder why I don't trust the police. Well, I have a story that happened to me about 15 years ago. It's true. I have just changed a couple
of details to protect myself from this headcase, because he is still out there, even though he's not in any sort of LE.
It happened in 1993. I was married to my first wife. We were very young and I worked to jobs. My night job was bouncing in a club.
Well, normally, I would ride my bike from the club home after work because we had only one car. However, on the night in question, I was driving our
It was late. Red and blue lights flashed in my mirror so I immediately pulled off the road. I placed both hands on the steering wheel and waited for
The officer came to my window. I looked up and there was a light in my face. He asked me to step out of the car. I complied.
As soon as I stepped out of the car I realized something was wrong. His uniform did not look right. It was not the same color as our city police
officers. A few years earlier I had been a police explore with the boy scouts.
At once I was nervous. When I got a look at his badge I realized it was a security badge.
He asked me, "Where is the girl that usually drives this car?"
I said, "You mean my wife?"
His reply, "What's she doing married to a ***hole like you?"
I was young, I got a bit defensive. We exchanged a few words. And I said, "I want to talk to your watch commander."
He told me he didn't have to call anyone!
The next thing I did was a big mistake. I grabbed my license from his hand. A split second later he smacked me with the maglite he was holding. I
stumbled back. And in all honestly, I let out a frightened shriek.
I put my hands up defensively. Boxing style. He took another swing and caught me on the arms. I lunged and we wrestled. He started going for his gun.
I freaked and I managed to trip him. He fell. At which point I ran into an alley.
I ran 5 blocks home. I called the police. They came to my house. Took me to my car and followed me home. I filed a complaint. But he disappeared.
Three months later he was arrested. It turns out he was former security guard. He got caught when he pulled over a 16 yo girl and harassed her and
made sexual advances toward her.
He went to prison for a grand total of 6 months less a day! He got out and went to work for a well known package delivery company.
True story. I feel lucky to be alive. When he was questioned about the incident with me. He told the arresting officers he "was gonna shoot the son
of a ****! But he ran off like a chicken ****!"
