Me and a buddy were smoking a bong in his car and driving around. We were close to my house and decided to stop by taco bell because thats what you do when you're high and driving around. So we get the food and pull into my neighborhood, but my friend can't wait so we start eating our food in the car parked next to some dudes house. A cop car drives by, we don't take too much notice to it, but we notice it. We decide to rip the bong again, he won't come back right? He does. We pull away slowly and the lights come on. I shove the bong under my seat, water goes all over the floor. It smells like straight up weed in the car, totally hot boxed. The cop walks up to the window and tells my buddy to step out and tells me to keep my hands on the dash where he can see them. At this point we were both thinking we were fucked. A k9 SUV pulls up behind the first cop. My buddy gets back in the car. We don't say a word to each other. The first cop and the k9 cop have a conversation, and then the k9 SUV pulls away. The cop who pulled us over says they'd been looking for people casing houses in my neighborhood and wanted to make sure we weren't robbers. After that he let us go on our way. I have never been more tense and terrified in my entire life.

I grew up in a bad neighborhood and the cops would hassle the Mexicans who lived there a lot. I'm mostly white so I avoided the brunt of that but I remember one time they got onto me. I was hanging out with my friends on this abandoned bridge and we followed some train tracks to get there, I left early and while I was following the tracks back home these cops stopped me and asked what I was doing. They wanted me to name my friends and I, assuming I was in trouble for trespassing, refused to rat them out.

As it turns out there were some storage lockers at the end of the tracks that got robbed so me not giving out details made me seem super suspicious. They called in backup but once I told them my phone number and where I lived they were able to verify with my mom that I didn't do it. I still kinda wonder why they thought I was responsible, I mean I was like 12 at the time so I think I'd have been a little young for armed robbery. That's my only real interaction with cops, I never did drugs or shoplifted or anything so my record's nice and clean.

I get escorted by hot redheaded policewomen to do work on occasion.

Except when they send an officer that don't have those traits, but I swear they have those traits more often than chance would imply.

I'm a law-abiding citizen, so no stories about me.

Found out I got a cousin currently in prison, though. He's apparently going to be there for quite some time (not sure for what, thought it was for drugs but it must be worse than when my older cousin was busted for heroin), and I'm frankly not surprised by this.

Serious:

I talked myself out of a speeding ticket. I was male, but also white, so it was on medium difficult.

Although given details related to my last post, I suspect he may have seen me as a potential source of future annoyance. I could be overthinking it.

Last month, I had to go to the police precinct station to present some evidence and a full account of what I witnessed during a break-in and trespassing incident. The police detective assigned to the case insisted on interviewing me in one of those soundproofed, locked from the outside interrogation rooms, even though their whole office floor was empty and he could have just talked to me at his desk. He offered me a water bottle, but even though I was thirsty, I didn't want to waste his time getting one, so I refused. I had to wait alone locked in the interrogation room for like 5 minutes, but I couldn't figure out where they had hidden the surveillance camera; it must have been one of those buttonhole type ones. When the detective returned, he spent about fifteen minutes interviewing me and he made me look at headshot photo lineup and it was just like in the TV and movies.

It was not a total waste of time, because I was able to point the detective to the witness whose account was ultimately what they needed to get an arrest warrant for the guilty guy, who ended up going to county jail for a few weeks, but the DA isn't very tough on petty crime, so he is out there reoffending again.
 
I wasn't detained but I remember when I was at a bus station at like 5 AM waiting for a bus to go on a transnational flight, a cop at the station started hassling me about where I was going, asked to see my ID, asking me like 4 times where I was going and if I already had a ticket.

Same trip I had a girl at a Walgreens ask me if I was a marine, so it might have been the haircut

There was one time I was caught by the fuzz. I was still on a buzz at the time. I ended up in the back of the van with my head in my hands. It was just like a bad dream, I was only fifteen. I remember thinking 'If only my brother could be here now. He'd get me out, he'd sort me out alright.'

I knew I should have stayed at home that night

Huh, weird, had almost the exact same experience. Except I was locked in a police cell and was feeling quite unwell. Then I talked to a man who smirked at me and said it was better to tell them who sold them the blow. I lied and said it was nobody I knew. They let me go eventually.

This is uncanny! Did the police also make you a deal regarding some form of favour if you told them the truth about what you knew, before likely threatening prosecution/violence?

When I was a CO, there was one inmate who was batshit crazy and was always featured in the daily briefings at shift start for pulling some shenanigans or another. He was always being moved in and out of the suicide tanks for self-harm.

One thing that was absolutely disgusting about the guy was that he was always covered in scabs from cutting himself, and he had a habit of hiding razor blades in his scabs (inmates would obtain the razor blades because we would provide razors for shaving, and then they would take the blades and try to replace them with the foil from chip bags and such and hope we wouldn't notice when they returned them for disposal), so we would actually have to search his wounds and retrieve the blades.

He would also regularly smear his shit all over the walls of his cell. I was surprised that we never had an issue finding another inmate who would eagerly volunteer to clean it up in exchange for a bagged lunch.
