Thank you for writing this very informative piece. As a civil rights attorney, (who mostly deals with issues of employment), I’m not often encountering the police, but my sister is always lamenting the government sanctioned attacks on lawyers and journalists.
As a lawyer, I’ve complained about police unnecessarily bothering me at routine traffic stops, complaining about the violation of my civil rights…just the principal!
I’ve never experienced what you have though. It must be very disturbing to know that you have been targeted in that way.
