The other night an officer stopped a male on a bicycle and asked for a follow up to assist. When I arrived, there was guy with a shaved head and wearing baggy clothes sitting on the curb next to the patrol car. The officer was talking with him and writing down his information.
The officer asked, “What’s your phone number?”
The suspect said, “I have an Obama phone.” He then gave her the number.
“They gave you a free phone?” I asked.
“Yeah. They give you a phone if you’re on welfare or food stamps.”
I asked, “Are you going to get a Trump phone next?”
He turned to me and gave me a confused look. That’s when I said, “If Donald Trump becomes president, does that mean you’ll get a Trump phone next?”
The officer said, “I think Trump would get rid of the Obama phones,” as she laughed.
I had some time to kill and you never know what you’re going to hear when you talk about random stuff, so I asked, “What do you think of Trump?”
Mr. shaved head said, “He’s winning because he’s keeping it real. He tells it like it is.”
That made me laugh because I wasn’t expecting him to say that. “Would you vote for him?” I asked.
“Well, he’s better that the rest and Hilary is full of shit.”
That’s when I asked him if I could take his picture from behind. I knew I was going to write a blog about the stop. He said sure and just sat there as I took my phone out.
After that we talked about all kinds of things like his two Baby Mammas and to his prior arrest record. He had quite the busy life compared to most people and he was entertaining. He ended up having a warrant and was arrested. As he was put in the police car I told the other officer, “I Wish everyone was as nice as him.” She agreed.
A series of bad decisions.
Great post as always! Too funny… isn’t it refreshing when they are nice and just keep it real?
