I was never arrested, but I have had confrontations with the police. When I was a teen, a friend (no longer after that) who was hitch-hiking, was picked up by an Assistant DA who he tried to rob. He tried to use me as an alibi stating he was with me. A sheriff came to my door at midnight & demanded my parents turn me over to him for questioning. My dad said, no warrant, no do; and he told them truthfully I was home all night. I never heard of it again.
Another time I was involved in an incident trying to locate a run-away. In my attempt to help the parents, I called police & met police in a school parking lot where they told me to wait as they checked out my suspicions of where the child might be. A third cop pulled up next to my vehicle with his hand on his gun & a Shepard in the back & rolled down his window & yelled at the top of his lungs demanding an answer why I was parked there & that he had a dog. Without hesitation I yelled back that his buddies told me to wait there & he should talk to his fellow officers before treating me disrespectfully. He backed off & called them. The first two officers drove back & then yelled at me for yelling at their buddy. I told them he was rude & threatening & I don't take kindly to such behavior. We ended up nose to nose yelling at each other until they backed down.
Another incident I was rear ended by a vehicle with my baby in a car seat. The cop that came to take the report was rude & not the least sympathetic to me, my child or the older gentleman who rear ended me who had two crying children in his backseat. It wasn't the older man's fault as he was hit by a teen playing with his stereo causing the older man's car to hit my van stopped for a car making a left turn. After 30 minutes of the cop sitting in his car, I politely asked if I could leave because I had two more children (6 & 9) who were to be coming home off the school bus & I needed to get home. He rudely shouted at me, he'd be done when he is done.
I am not a fan of the police & will never call them anymore except for dire emergencies or if required by law. The moral of my stories is do not take their rude behavior. We deserve to be treated with respect; as innocent citizens, not as criminals until proven otherwise. If cops can't treat us decently out of fear that anyone or everyone might be a criminal, then get another job.
