I was reading another topic on this board and I wanted to bring this up. I live in a nice neighborhood in AZ. I havn't really heard of any crime since I moved out here about a year and a half ago. I live in a house that basically has a wall surrounding this community of homes. I was out getting my mail at night, and a couple patrol cars came screaming down my street and pulled up in front of my house. I was in my damn boxer shorts and flip flops grabbing my mail. They got out of their cars, and I asked them if there was a problem. Then they immediately started questioning me. I aksed why I was being questioned for getting my mail, and how they even saw me. They said they saw me out behind my house, which is where the wall of the community opens. This is bullshit because I wasnt behind my house. I was in front of my house, getting my damn mail. I told them this, and they had nothing to say. Then they continued to question me...asking questions such as which home is mine, which car is mine, what my name and dob are, what my tattoos mean, what I do for a living. Everything I told them, they wrote down on a peice of paper. I asked why they were taking down this type of information, and they stated that they have to do this for every person that they come in contact with. The good citizen I am, I did not give them ALL of the info that they wanted, but really didnt want to get hassled late at night, so I wished them a good night and went back inside. Now that I look back on the situation, I really shouldnt have said a god damn thing, but my ex was a cop, and I wasnt thinking anybody was out to get me. Then I peak out my window, and they moved their patrol cars up the street about 10 feet and were clearly running my plates. I walked back out and asked if there was going to be a problem. They said no. I walked back in.

This frustrates the fuck out of me. I was out getting my damn mail. They lied about how they saw me. I clearly had my mail in my hands. They had no reason to be there or run my plates of my car that was in my driveway. I really should have just asked if I was being arrested or detained and walked back inside, but I wasnt trying to make enemies, as I am new to Arizona and the area in general. I was being profiled. I probably have a freaking red dot on my damn mailbox now, for all i know.

This is what things are coming to now. Its sad, and its pathetic.

I wanted to share that...pretty much just a rant. None of it made sense to me. I'm really debating calling the department and asking them if that is SOP, and asking what they do with the info of the ridiculous questions that they ask law abiding citizens.

Thanks for reading.

I'm also an inkie... But I am also clean cut and dress nicely. Honestly the thought of profiling rarely comes into my head.

If someone in their underwear is going through mailboxes at night they might look suspicious.

Look I can confirm one thing. Most departments have a policy that every contact with a citizen must be documented. EVERY contact and sometimes a small field report (mdc/computer) must be conducted. That's usually part of their policies. As for the rest who knows. But as a citizen you can request a copy of the field report.

Or, I don't know, maybe he can put pants on before he goes outside to get his mail? People frolicking about at night in their skivies is going to tend to draw attention.

Nosy neighbor called the fuzz on inky as a "suspicious prowler."

I have three tattoos total. All are on the inside of my wrists and can be covered by a watch. No skulls, no gang symbols, nothing that would offend anybody. I'm a clean cut white boy. They even asked me if I was this big from steroids. Are you kidding me?

yeah ok

so let me get this right. the cops in AZ are profiling "clean cut" white boys?
Link Posted: 7/20/2013 11:16:51 AM EST
Makes me wonder if there's been burglaries in your area.

However, no burglar will run around in flip flops. You'd have to kick them off to run.

LoL, all my neighbors know and like me. I'm not exactly a mean person. And it was late at night, so I ran out to my mail box in some shorts that I walk around the house in. I call them my boxers. "Officers, my neighbor is outside getting his mail with no shirt on. I think you should come take him in."

So which is it? Shorts or boxers? Some inconsistencies are emerging here.

ETA: Everyone I know calls shorts, shorts. Not boxers. Why would someone call a pair of shorts, boxers? One are shorts. The other are underwear.

Does the OP live in a "Nice neighborhood"? or does he live in a neighborhood where you can walk around in your underwear?

Not necessarily, but most folks who live in nice neighborhoods have the decency not to traipse out to their mailbox in underwear.

At least around here.
