Yes I agree with this.
Cops had nothing to do where I am from but chase around 2 white kids who were walking around most days.
click beep (I hear that dreaded cop radio sound) "that's them." I heard someone say behind me. I could feel a car aproaching from behind as 3 more
crept around 2 sides of the mall and one from across the road...
I was questioned for 20 minutes about me walking, where was I going, where did I come from. This happened a lot to me so even though I was "walking
dirty," I knew there was nothing to worry about.
I mean one time they stopped me and the guy calls for backup. I'm only going to the circle K (convenience store) to get some snacks. So I am waiting
by the front of his car in his headlight "where he can see me."
To my surprise 8 cops cars came screaching down the highway zooming into spots behind the first car...
I was WALKING.. The first guy made 4 of the cars leave...
Now where I live they hardly even bust parties, and there is like 0 crime. They have nothing to do really, but either I'm older and know how to live
without cops in my face, or they just don't really sweat the small stuff, I don't really know.
I like some cops... now...
But back in the day (ie my whole life until the last 2 years) I have hated, feared, and loathed the cops... Especially when walking through "blacker"
neighborhoods. Maybe they thought I was a drug dealer walking around with my backpack on? Without a car a backpack is good for groceries... In any
case they were always trying to charge me with random things, like jaywalking, or trespassing, or whatever... Yea trespassing the street is a crime,
I swear if I wasn't white I would be in jail right now.
