    oh man, today, me and a friend, went to a place to get paint. im gonna make this long story short.
    we go on with a cart. we put the cans in our bags. then my friend proceeds to pay for 1 item, while i go outside. all of a sudden when im outside, some UC grabs me. i didnt know it was a UC at the time, so i tried grabbin her off of me. but then the UC starts screaming 'YOU RESISTIN ARREST?!YOU RESISTIN ARREST?!". then the uc pulls me back to the store. when a different uc, pulls me harder. so im getting brought back into the store, and theres my friend, waiting to pay. the UC grabs him and brings us into the back. they tell us to empty the bag, and we do, 22 cans in total. the UC "reads" me our rights. then takes my information along my friends.they went through the surveillence tapes, and they friggin calculate that i took 14 cans of paint, and my friend took 8. then two cops came, and talked to us, shit, i was honestly startin to get worried that they were gonna be corrupt cops that were gonna take us to the station and beat my ass up. all i know is, i was lucky i didnt have no fuckin graff shit on me. i had umm, a glass cutter, and i had some mini bat. while my friend had sticks, markers, streakers.

    so the cops let us go, under one condition, we have to tell our parents ourself, and they gotta call them back, if i dont tell them, and they dont call them, im getting charged waaay up my ass. im at home right now, a little worried. but im happy im not in no holding cell.
    well, thats my 'short' story.

    oh another fuct up thing that happened, was some cop asked me if i was in a gang, and i told him i wasnt, and he straight up says "i dont fuckin believe you" ohh man. that bothered me, its bullshit that graffiti gets all tied up with being gang related. and another reason why they probably i was in a gang is cuz im filipino, and around here, filipinos are pretty known. oh well. i cant complain, i got off easy,

    when a uc pig grabs your bag/person,you either drop your bag and run like hell,or twist and turn to get away ,then procede with the running like hell.

    i wouldve but, first, my friend was still in there, and they knew that he was with me, i dont know bout you guys, but im not about to ditch one of my close friends. and second, even if i did get to run, that parking lot is fucking huuuuuuge! its one of those major chains.

    and to 'johndoe' dude, 22 cans is all that we could fit into the bag without it ripping or something. and how embarassing is that.

    and, to dazzle, thats great, im an idiot :cool: but shuttup man, ive stolen from this store before, i think they got new security since they changed to RONA.
