GUEST,Van BS: NYC Police and folkies (33) RE: BS: NYC Police and folkies 06 Apr 04

Dangerous people your polis. I had one come round saying I had stolen a cat. Hard to believe it was a stray we were feeding. Anyway he decided to arrest me and take me to the station. I went upstairs to dress in something other than my gardening clothes as I thought there might be someone sensible at the station. I'm in my natural when the nutter bursts through the door and beats the holy crap out of me. Charged with assaulting a PC, resisting arrest etc. Hauled out in jogging bottoms, bare feet and handcuffed in front of the neighbours - 4 polis cars - they thought it was a drugs bust so I got a bit of street cred. They dropped all charges but what I found worrying was when I saw my doctor she told me that it was a regular occurence. How can you support these people? It took a year before the damage to the nerve in my arm recovered. I was also advised not to pursue a case against them unless I wanted my life to be hell.
