For No Good Reason_Issac
Description: Issac, of the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan, says he’s been stopped numerous times since he was a teenager, “too many to count.” Recently he was stopped on his way home and showed the cops his ID. He says the cops stop him all the time, “It’s not cool. Last week, actually. Walking home, and I guess it was mis-identity, so they stopped me, and they searched me to make sure I had nothing on me. They said, ‘Stop, where are you going?” I told them where I was going, ‘I’m going home.’ They said, ‘alright, stop where you at’ I stopped, I showed them my I.D. They frisked me for no apparent reason. I felt violated. I’m not gunna front, they go all in. Like they grab the ballsacks, they grab my cahones.” He thinks they could also stop him based on his clothes. “They see a red coat and automatically assume that I’m a hoodlum. But no, I wear red because that’s my favorite color."
