I live in a city, but not NYC. A smaller, rural city, upstate NY. There were no gangs up here, but its sliding more in that direction. But even still, There was no connection to any sort of gang in my instance. I was just driving down the street. Didn't break any rules, no running the red light, nothing. To have that happen, where if I did anything slightly provocative, well, that's just wrong. Even if they were looking for a ******** criminal, I wasn't that guy. Until they have to goto that level, cops should always ****** the best in people. Yes, its a crappy ***, probably don't make enough doing it, but those are the breaks. You cant ****** every man is gonna kill you and treat every man as a criminal. And my point it, had I been white, I doubt that ever happens. But being black is reason enough to go run up on my car with guns drawn, without even pulling me over first, asking for my license, to even see if I was the man they were looking for.
