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

I was surprised this wasn't Moz for a change.

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.

Most people in a cell all day will do damn near anything just to get out of the cell.

When I worked at a convenience store for a while on night shift, my co-worker was nearly always a convict out on work release. They'd work night shifts, double shifts, any kind of shifts that didn't involve being in jail. The manager loved them.

So did I. They'd do all the actual work.

Attention Everyone!!!

To preface what has happened recently, I simply remind everyone that Sonic The Hedgehog's Arms Are Not Freaking Blue!!!

If ‪#‎SEGA‬ had Never changed them, or reversed the change between February and November of this year in the new Sonic Boom video games AND Cartoon Series on Cartoon Network, as well as the Toys and whatever else, I would Never Have Had to Protest and Rebel the way I have, including the creation of my group, FIX SONIC'S ARMS IMMEDIATELY, SEGA!!!

Within my groups, I have lead by example to push forward to the path of Waking SEGA Up and Forcing Them to Change Sonic's Arm Colour Back Immediately. And to confess, I HAVE DONE MY PART FOR REAL! I had personally gone into three of the four local GameStops(EXCLUDING the Fashion Square one) THREE TIMES to Personally Protest in my Silent Way. First Attack: I printed, as seen on the Facebook Group, the Fronts of the Sonic Boom Game Inserts, affixed double-sided tape onto the backs, and affixed them onto the fronts of their respective display game boxes on the shelves. Second Attack, about a week later: I checked the success of my first attack: damaged a few original inserts pretty well to full removal. And of what were still there, I made attempts to transfer the inserts from the original cases into Behind the inserts of different games. I've had to briefly explain my reasons and the Protest, and told them that they should NOT BE SELLING THE BLUE_ARM_BANDIT GAMES IN THE FIRST PLACE. AND THAT THEY SHOULD SEND ALL OF THEIR REMAINING STOCK OF SONIC BOOM GAMES AND STUFF BACK TO SEGA, TO MAKE THEM CHANGE SONIC'S ARM COLOUR BACK IMMEDIATELY!!! They did nothing. And one last week later, the Third and Final Attack, and the ONE and ONLY time that the Fashion Square Location had been involved as well. I made up and printed faux price tag decals, with the short note to discourage purchase of the Blue Arm Bandit games, and promote the Protesting Boycott. And with the Five Wii U software cases that each melted a bit from the MY House Fire Last January, as well as Five Smoke Damaged 3DS Game Cases (no melting), I had printed a full front, side and back insert with the boycott encouragements, and the notes on the back to make the stores send their remaining stock Back To SEGA!

I Have ran into individuals giving me Bad Grief for my Protest and Actions, OUTSIDE from the Fashion Square Location, but I HAVE done my duty in full to the best of my abilities at the individual moments and circumstances.

I also HAD Hidden ALL of the Blue Armed Sonic Toys at Toys R Us here, concealed hidden amongst their metal cupboards, so they ALL would NOT be SOLD, and Best Boycotted for The Protest! They remained hidden for the longest time of over a Month; found and reshelved near the 20th of December to my personal dismay and crestfall. And at Best Buy, ALL Copies of THEIR Sonic Boom Games are STILL SUCCESSFULLY CONCEALED AND HIDDEN from View AND Purchase!

Anyhow, AFTER the Final Attack for the Protest, near a week later, on December 8, I had typed, signed, addressed and US Mailed apology letters, with the promise to have been done with my In Person Protest Deeds with No Further Action therein, to ALL but the Fashion SquareGameStop, and I had sent one to Toys R Us as well. I had thought the FS GS would overlook the ONE attack of Protest on them, but obviously, I was mistaken.

Which brings us up to now.

Last Friday, the 26th, my mother and I were at the mall, getting pizza and spaghetti for lunch. She had informed me of a good Mini Refrigerator deal at Sears, so after eating, I made my way to check it out. NOTHING ELSE HAPPENED AT SEARS, and I went NOWHERE NEAR JCPENNY that day. There was a good 3.1 Cubic Foot Fridge for $129.99 that caught my eye, but that is to be purchased later.

On the way to Sears, I peeked into the GameStop, and I spotted a New Skylander Figure: Blastermind. I was set to buy it, and I was going to consider checking out their Wii UPreowned Software selection in their 3 for 2 deal. Innocent; I was NOT Looking for Trouble. But then this MALELoomed out in front of me, frightened the crap out of me, and he said in a BOOMING VOICE that ONLY scared me worse, "YOU ARE BANNED FROM HERE. YOU NEED TO LEAVE NOW." But still determined to continue my shopping, I veered into the Wii U direction, when his female accomplice startled me and boomed in as well. Still feeling frightened and mentally overloaded, I made a grab for my pepper spray to use In Defense. I offered a few Peaceful solutions, but she ended up sending him to go get security. So, I shouted, "Fine! I'm Leaving", and I dropped the figure. And on my way out, I told the MALE to Not Get Anyone, and we both stopped near simultaneous. I still felt my own worse from wear with the fear, startle, paranoia, and I did NOT want him following me and causing more trouble upon me. And then in my defense and to make my escape, I spritzed a miniscule amount of the pepper spray Downward; NOT into his face. And then I left.

I did not learn until much later that the spritz had done a lot worse than I had imagined it would, as well as learning that they were the so-called "Manager" and "Ass Manager" of that particular store.

I had No Idea of the contents of the Pepper Spray, OR that it was Illegal for use in certain situations in the state of Virginia at all.

And, I HAD tried the stuff on myself days before in the upstairs bathroom. A Two Second Spray onto my left wrist, some of it got onto the bath tub wall as well. Like sampling a perfume or deodorant. It Took Me Out damn well. I had to open the windows, turn on the bathroom fan AND aim the box fan into the bathroom to air the place out, and I wiped the wall off as well, and OF COURSE I washed my hands. It took fifteen to thirty minutes to make it bearable in there again.

In the end, Yes, I went along peacefully when the "Police" arrived to collect me, and I had to spend a miserable weekend in Jail. And I just got out on a bond and bail; yada, yada, yada.

In the END, I WAS the Victim; I did not cause the original provoking; The "Assistant Manager" Made the First Attack ONTO ME and Provoked my defensive response. I was Minding My Own Business; NOT Looking for Trouble, and then HE Startled Me, similar to a potential Rapist in a Dark Alley in a big city. ANY of you would have done the same as I Have in Defense AND Escape!

And we can SUE SEGA for Changing Sonic's Arm Colour and Ultimately, this MALE getting Pepper Sprayed! Think About It Seriously!

And my Protest Actions are NOT acts of "Vandalism", regardless of your individual perceptions. It was NOT Vandalism, but Good Protest when in around 2004, At Fashion Square, I tried their NEW Soda machines with a credit-debit card slot, and then I learned of the FIVE DOLLAR SURCHARGE that brought my bank account into the Freaking Red! I subtly Posted Sticky Note Signs onto each machine shortly after, "This Machine Charges You Five Dollars per Card Use". A few days later, the Original Machines returned! Nobody gave ME Any Freaking Grief or Complaints at all about that!

AND if you REALLY want to see the Whole Mess Happen, go find the Security Tape of the time of Point A, my finding Blastermind to Point B of my departure from the store.

Now, if you will excuse me, I have a LOT of much required Packing to Take Care Of.

Good Day.

When I was young me and my brother got poked by the police because we were shooting off (bright orange) Airsoft guns down in the woods and it made a dogwalker uncomfortable
we were good Christian children though so we were terrified and submissive enough that they let us off with a warning

Yeah I'm sure I've already referenced Shoplifters Of The World Unite a lot in the past (probably around the pepper spray incident) and I just thought the Supergrass one would be funnier.

Squeeze me.
Eighteen, got pulled over by MP's which is federal charges. They took me to their station and handcuffed me to a school chair. Gave me a breathlyzer and I only had .02.

Thank god they weren't certified to have my blood drawn.

Skated five charges.

Save the Loli
When I was a little kid I laughed to my parents that I smuggled a water bottle into the movie theater (and saved my parents a few bucks) in front of a cop and the cop said "young man, come here" and I ran and my parents had to talk it over with the police.

Had a legitimate psychotic break and ended up sneaking on trains until I got to Hungary. Got stopped by a police car in a random shithole village, but since I was SOMEWHAT out of it I refused to believe that they were police. (The hungarian name is somewhat close to 'cleaner' in my original tounge.) Refused to get into the car until one of the police gave my a punch to the face, which made me somewhat compliant. Had to sit and answer a lot of questions, who I was, how I got there and so on. For some reason they were very keen on looking inside my butthole as well. I obliged. After a while I gave them my real identity instead of 'Elton John' which made things easier. They contacted my country and when my identity was verified I was let go.

Due to said psychotic break I was convinced they were fake police though, and after a while I ended up strapped to a bed in Hungarian loony-bin and got shot full of Haladol. Made me drool like a tard. The hospital looked like something out of "One flew over the cuckoo's nest". Not quite jail but good enough.

At a separate occasion I found a bag of white powder in a holding cell. Police tried very hard to get me to admit that it was mine. Still kinda wish I would've kept it.

At 16 years I stole hundreds of dollars worth of stuff I didn't need from Target. The girls in my group handed me the bag on the way out and since I was naive, I agreed to take it. Which obviously meant that they took me to the back room. Apparently these girls who I thought were my friends lied and said that the whole thing was my idea.
So I had no problem giving the cops the names of the girls and the address of one of them. One had to go to juvenile hall because it was their second offense. I got out of going to court because I had a therapist but had to do months of community service. One guy who used to be nice to me in school started yelling "you made so and so go to juvie" whenever I'd pass by him.

Verified nobody
Had just arrived at the town I'd be spending my vacations at, middle of the night, friends were too much of pussies to do anything after the trip and just wanted to rest. I go out by the beach and light up a blunt, all by myself in the darkness just to have some quiet time and hear the waves crashing.

Literally a couple minutes later a huge police truck with some five cops inside stops right next to me. I'm all like "oh gee what a buzzkil you guys" (to myself) and just throw the blunt on to the sea and start walking back to the place we were staying. Didn't even have any documents on me or anything.

Fucking cops follow me on their huge mofo truck, going literally half a mile per hour and shining this blinding police light on my back for some ten minutes until I arrive at the apartment. They don't even get out of the car or talk to me at any point or anything. Faggots!

Not complaining though... could've been worse. Shitty walk but after a minute I realized they were too much of a bunch of small-town cops to do anything besides pretend to be big guys doing big police work in their big truck.

I don't give a fuck
Okay I have one, but it wasnt really serious. Me at age 6 and my brother age 4 dialed 911 on a payphone on a military installation and hung up when someone answered. Minutes later, heavily armed policemen stormed the building to noticed that nothing was out of the ordinary. My dad made me write "I will not phone prank the cops" 100 times in a row at home. That was pretty much the only incident where I got in trouble. Other run ins with the cops resulted in them asked for bribes or jokingly asking if they could also have a drag from a joint.

Actually a nudibranch in disguise
A pair of cops brought my little brother home because he was starting a our backyard. He and some friends were trying to roast marshmallows on the grill. My parents were really confused...he still got grounded, though.

A few months later, some police officer tried to chase me off my own property because someone was reporting intruders...apparently some dumbass kids were catching frogs in our backyard and the neighbors really hated that.

Kind of sad, actually. Are kids not allowed to have fun anymore? (:_(

This one time when I was a kid me and my brother kept prank calling operators at a restaurant in town. The operators got mad. It was a stupid thing to do but I thought it was hilarious back then. We ended up leaving the restaurant later on after getting bored. I was told later by a friend that right after we left, a couple of cops showed up asking for us.
