Apparently I fit the description of a local car jacker. As I was walking home from the grocery store just now (1:30 am Tuesday morning) I found myself
surrounded by a combination of no less than 6 police and sheriff cars, lights and sirens ablaze. They scared the living s out of me, which I expressed
by telling them that they scared the living s out of me; shined all their lights in my face, put me on the ground and frisked me. All the while I was
politely asking them to tell me what I did wrong. They eventually told me I fit the the description mentioned, and then told me I was seen walking
from the direction of the Goodwill store (which I wasn't, I came from the exact opposite side of the street), and would be detained while they
searched me. I literally had grocery bags overflowing from my backpack, I couldn't even close it. They asked me what I was doing. For the second time
in a month, I had to tell the police I was in the middle of writing an English paper on social injustice. (had a similar experience while walking home
from the same store.) While the cops were ID'ing me, one of them was going through my groceries when she pulled out the Ben and Jerry's Half Baked
ice cream. After a thorough examination of my ice cream and the the receipt from the store, she proudly proclaimed (I couldn't make this up) "The
ice cream is still cold, it's not him." I am no longer sleepy. Back to my English paper..
Moral: Ice cream is both delicious and a great alibi. No conspiracy, no brutality, no charges filed, no harm done. But they really did scare the s out
of me, and waste my time! Why do the cops keep messing with me?
