    I've had the unfortunate experience of being harassed multiple times by Police in different cities. My experience has been similar to this. This is crazy how our rights are being stripped.(Not that we have any, when it comes to the police) Now I know this is nothing new. Police have been this way forever. Now it's been brought to light, that they're being told to stop and frisk anyone just to meet a quota. So you could be walking down the street anytime while in NYC, and have your "rights" violated, simply because they need to produce numbers in 250's which is stop, question, and frisk. Reasons for them to stop you- to them "you look suspicious". Now what constitutes as suspicious. It's an opinion. Maybe because you look a certain way. Or you looked at the officer a certain way. They stop more than 1,800 people everyday.600,000 stopped last year with this new policy. It's not police protecting civilians. It's police vs. civilians.

    Here is the video, and I just wanted to share it with you all. (I would open it up to see the full screen)



    Here is the full story.

    That truly sucks. Do you think that you are being profiled in some way?
