--Forty years ago a man (white) living in Ann Arbor built his daughter a go-cart to ride around the neighborhood. One of his neighbors called the AAPD, who responded by impounding the go-cart, placing the young daughter in the squad car, and bringing her home all shook up and crying. Her father became enraged at this and lambasted the idiot policemen who then arrested him. He served a year of probation. When he lambasted them, they placed their hands on their pistols, which enraged him even further.
Then 7 other police cars showed up. They leave their cars and talk in groups. Steve and his friend were put into to separate cars and taken to holding rooms in the police station.
Steve asked when he’d be able to leave and was told, “When you explain why you have so much money in your wallet.” Police had noticed it when he got out his license back after being stopped. (He had cashed his paycheck, and also collected rent from a tenant he had.)
They didn’t let him go until 2am and he had a long walk to his car. His friend was in jail for 2-3 days.
There are many, many more incidents -- we wish we could report all of them.
