Back before we were married, I used to live in Montgomery county. More than once, my now-husband was pulled over for "tail light out" when leaving my place. 4 police cruisers called each time. Once, they tried to physically pull him out of the car (he was then 305 pounds, 6'4", and sitting very low down in a TransAm).
When they were unsuccessful. They ordered him out, pushed him against the car and hit him with a baton/asp or whatever. They impounded the car and left him on the side of the road. ‎- Christina Pikas
He walked back to my place. When he went to get his car from impound ($500 later), there were no lights out. ‎- Christina Pikas
Another time, they pulled him over in a neighborhood and tossed the entire contents of his car including his spare tire, jack, etc., on a lawn and then not finding any drugs left. People all over the neighborhood were freaking out but it took him a long time to put everything back and drive away. ‎- Christina Pikas
His mom made a complaint, but nothing was ever done. ‎- Christina Pikas
We do not call the police. We are afraid of the police. We have all the privilege - particularly in a majority minority county. ‎- Christina Pikas

Montgomery County, Maryland? ‎- MoTO Babycakes

Sadly, the fact that things were and still re this way in Montgomery County (assuming Maryland) doesn't surprise me one bit. The whole Metro DC area suffers from this, as do most metropolitan areas. ‎- Mr. Noodle
