I believe I got the officer’s attention because I am black and live in a nice part of town. Friday afternoon around 4:30 I decided to go to the grocery store and rode my bike to the bus stop. While I was waiting there I was harassed several times by an officer. First, the officer told me to move myself and bicycle out of the street over his loud speaker from his car. I complied. The second time he approached me in the street and I didn’t recognize him. He stated that he previously asked me to move, and that he was for a second time asking me to move my bike into dirt. I told him that I keep my bicycle tires clean and that I wouldn’t move my bike into the dirt. From there he began getting more and more hostile.
He asked me if he could see my ID. I told him he could not, and that I was not breaking a law. He then grabbed my wrist tightly and said, “You aren’t going anywhere.”
