The year was the early 80’s and he had just picked up his new Cadillac Fleetwood and we were driving back to my home in New Jersey. My parents were in the back seat and my son who was a little boy at that time was sitting in the front with me.
Yes, I did notice that as soon as we passed he pulled out. Minutes later we were pulled over. He walked slowly to the car eyeing everyone in the car. He pulled me over not because I was speeding but as he said “there were reports of stolen cars”. I am like really “stolen cars with senior citizens sitting in the back seat”. He wanted all documentation on this “nice car” as he put it. I literally had to show him that yes my parents just bought this car with all the accompanying documentation.
After checking everything over numerous times, I knew, not to respond, make any “quick moves” etc. because in the blink of an eye, I could have become a statistic like these issues that are going on in the US today
A new generation but same effect
