    even if i'm not doing anything wrong, which is pretty much always when i'm in public, i still feel paranoid and rarely, if ever, feel protected.

    and don't even get me started on police sirens.

    Depends where I am...Jersey is funny. Like, where I live, there is sort of an unwritten rule, that the cops dont bust tax payer's balls....But, there are some towns around here where the police obviously have a directive to generate revenue. The cops just fuck fuck fuck with people. I feel most comfortable in high crime areas, because if the cops are busy doing something they generally dont have the energy to fuck with regular folks :rofl:

    I avoid the police. They make me nervous.

    see that's the problem is that we've been conditioned to fear the police even though we're law abiding citizens (weed thing aside), pay our taxes, and just want to live our lives peacefully. i got pulled over once for going 40 in a 35 mph zone through some small shithole podunk town and the cop gave me and my gf a huge interrogation and asked even for my gf's id despite the fact she was just sitting there in the passenger seat looking pretty.

    Drives by me is fine.

    Following me, is a little nerve wracking.

    Passing a trooper on the highway is always done with great care.

    I'm more afraid of black cops than white ones.

    Don't bother me at all. Cops are just people like you and I. Doing a job and making a living. I'm not doing anything wrong so have nothing to worry about.
