I don't know what else you were wearing or what time of day. Cops don't waste their time, they get points for making arrests.<quoted text>
I have several hoodies, but I also have several hats I bought in Ireland (I go there every other year).
I was walking down the street in Manchester, CT, when I noticed a cop car slowly following me (he thinking I did not know he was behind me). I was wearing a traditional Irish eight quarter cap. The stupid cop thought it might be gang colors. After a while I stopped and looked at him quizzically. He then took off. Sad.
How could an effing' cop who allegedly knows the latest in gang colors think a traditional Irish tweed cap has a friggin' thing to do with gangs? I was a corporate professional walking down the street and this moron thought I might be a gang-banger? Because of an Irish tweed cap?
Unbelievable, but true.
When I was trucking I would still have to walk my dog and a lot of people thought I was an RVer. I also noticed that if the truck stop restaurant was near full, a woman would sit down next to me. I guess they think I am a grandfatherly figure.
