I was walking to the bus stop.
And, next thing I know, the police stopped me. They told me I look like someone they were looking for. They even asked me for my ID.
I showed them my ID; they didn't say anything further; and they went away.
I have never been stopped by the cops before and was very surprised by the experience.
A part of me wondered what would have happened if I didn't have my ID with me. Would I have been knocked over, handcuffed and dragged off to jail? Or even worse?
I think I now understand how some folks feel that they are always being harassed by the police. In my area, nerves are still frayed over the shooting death of Oscar Grant by a BART police officer. A BART police officer claimed he was trying to taser Oscar Grant but mistook his gun for a taser. Instead, he shot him in the back. Oscar Grant later died.
