O Dot, if you act that afraid, they would surely notice and be suspicious.:o

Perhaps it would be good for you to say hello to some police when you have a chance, get over your apprehension.


There is a difference between fear and suspicious lol

I was married to an Iraqi and lived in Iraq and - quelle coincidence - they stop me everytime I go to the airport. I've not had the cavity search...........yet.

Having had very little interaction with the police( except at work ), I am quite scared of them.
Don't ask me why, maybe because as kids we never saw them locally, I have no idea,
If one approaches me and looks as though theyre about to speak I get a sudden rush of terror.
I would probably faint if one stopped me in my car lol.

Have you?


Yes, but not in the current climate... Many years ago, while driving past past the local Marine Camp, a cat ran out in front of me, and I hit it. I stopped at the kerb, and went back to the cat which was lying in the road, it looked dead, so I went back to the car to grab a blanket so I could wrap it up, and take it somewhere for treatment. I walked back to the cat, and got about two feet away, all prepared with the blanket, and the bloody thing scarpered off into the hedge! Frightened me to death as it upped sticks, I can tell you!

Anyway, I got back in the car, and probably drove for another 3-4 minutes when the old Blue lights came whizzing up behind me, and pulled me over. They immediately ordered me out the car...

Bit odd I thought, but whatever....

After some very brief questioning, (on both sides!) it turned out I'd been reported as acting suspiciously near the Marine Camp, and that it was thought I'd planted a bomb...!!! I laughed, and explained the cat story. They still searched the car, and copped a feel, but all ended well. ;)

This would of been about the time of the IRA in their hayday, so understandable I guess... If I looked different, I guess things could have been very different, but thems the breaks... ;)

Mary, you don't have to say!

In America, from time to time, the police set up checkpoints where they look at everyone's driver's license, registration, and insurance card. If any are lacking, they write a ticket. If they see evidence of drunkenness or illegal drugs, they can search the car. I have had to show my documents. (Yes, I had them.):)

Never ever...yet!

If you don't mind me asking mary mary, why would there be a flag against your name?

Is it that suitcase of cocane they found last time? Or the bomb in your spongebag?:o

Apparently 30,000 people were randomly stopped and searched this year at railway stations and in their cars on certain roads. The anit-terrorism laws allow this to take place.

The only place I always get searched is the airport as there is probably a flag against my name.

I've never been stopped at a railway station or while driving.

Have you?
