    i was shopping in the scummy part of my city today, this is where i do all of my grocery shopping because its so damn cheap. its the kind of neighborhood thats lined on both sides of the street with dive bars, porn shops, and tittie bars. crack heads everywhere, fools sleeping on the sidewalks, and signs in the front of bars that say "do not do drugs in here, do not sell drugs in here, we will call the police." you get the picture. i've always come through this neighborhood even as a young kid so i've never felt afraid. but today, as i was done and walking back to my car, this guy runs out into the street right near me and yells, stop police! i look behind me and some crackhead was running toward the direction of me and the plain clothes police officer. he was being chased by a whole buncha other plain clothes police officers, all shouting at him to stop and others speaking into walkie talkies. the crack head kept running right towards me to a position between me and the cop, just then, the cop pulled out a gun and aimed it at the guy. the crackhead paused. at this point i thought the cop was going to fire, AND I'M RIGHT BEHIND THE GUY!! i immediately throw myself on
    the ground and hurt my ankle in the process, but the crackhead kept
    running. god, for that moment right after i realized i coulda been
    killed, i saw the guy running away and cops chasing him, it was like slow
    motion, reminded me of the OJ simpson chase on the freeway where they weren't even driving fast. on the sidewalk near me was a business woman wearing her nice business clothes (the yuppie-business district is a few blocks away), she dropped to the ground too, dirtying her nice clothes. i asked if she was okay and she didn't even respond. just walked away. probably figured i was some scruffy wacko like the rest of people in this part of town. i was also quite shocked to see how many plainclothes cops there are in this part of town considering there's so much crime....now my ankle hurts and this
    is all i'm thinking of today, all the superstitions "why were there so
    many delays and peculiarities that happened on my way to shopping,
    placing me right at that place and time?" was the "higher power" trying
    to remind me that my life is short so i stay on track? what about all
    the unfinished stuff i have in my life? should i use this as a reason to
    live more in the present? really, if i did believe that there is a higher
    power, there's just too many of us silly humans for her to look after, so its probobly just a series of strange coincidences. i mean, little things like the computer at the store not working right so i was delayed a few
    minutes, my ATM nearby was blocked off for no reason (it said men
    working, but there were no men working) making me walk a couple more blocks. actually, i'm not superstitious at all, but maybe i imagine
    these strange possibilities to give myself hope that there's something
    more to existence. oh well, in a week or two i'll be in the exact same place buying groceries again. i'll see what happens.

    Yo that's some hefty shit.. glad to hear you're okay bro. I know exactly what you mean about the sequence of events before an 'incident' and you can't but wonder if it was meant to happen.

    Keep on truckin..

    i have two cops with guns comments...

    first: a cop actually shot a friend of mine for holding a loaded gun to his own head. my buddy's dead, but that cop doesn't work anymore...

    second: I called to complain to the chief after having a gun drawn on me (by a cop) for the fifth time in my home town. The chief asked if I was accusing his officers of... (insert dramatic music here) ...profiling! so i said sure. He asked me to describe my self and my truck, and I've yet to be pulled over since then, even when going 40 mph in a school zone in front of a cop, among other things.

    that wasnt too exciting..i thought you would tell us you saw a warhead coming down at your house and your grabbed your ps2 and captain morgans and ran outside to safety..oh well..my back is in pain from some pig kicking me in the back..it always sucks when cops have their bright lights on top of the car on and they stand behind it and when they step into the light they have their biscuit pointed at your head..oh yes and in my city we had a little rodney king type of incident..a kid from around the way is wanted on gun charges and the portland maine cops thought some other kid was him so they approached him and whipped him in the head with a nightstick cracking his head all open and shit..the kid got $600,000 last week though..the real suspect is still around the neighborhood..this case also opened up a shitload of police brutality cases in portland that had been settled out of court to keep away from the media...fuck cops.

    I hate cops.about 7 years ago my house got broken into while I wasn't around-thank God.A neighbor called the police and they came to check it out-meanwhile I end up coming home to police lights and shit in my driveway-they are inside the house and I pull up(in my own driveway).and immediately get questioned by them,get frisked and all that shit-this happens about 3 times with 3 different cops-then they wouldn't let me in the house even they told me there was no one in the place-it was too much to deal with at the same time.The cops didn't even bother checking the next-door neighbors' backyard-he has sheds back there and the whole time you could hear someone walking in the bushes-eventually the uniforms left-and my neighbor went over to the house next door with a .44 Magnum and found this dumbass chilling in the shed.The cops were called again...but this time they got it right.

    Man I've had nothing but good run ins with police. Let off for speeding tickets, broke up a domestic disbute me and my ex got in, found my stolen purse, and I've got two cops who are regulars at the pub I work at who hook me up with shots of yager everynight I work the door even though I'm underage. One cop followed my best friend for like 10 minutes after she had picked up a hitchhiker and dropped him off, then he pulled her over and said he was following her to make sure she was okay and that guy didn't try anything funny. Just lookin out for her, didn't arrest her or give her a warning. I've even been invited to jacouzie(sp) parties cops are throwing. I'm not saying they're all cool or that they're all not shady, but I had to drop a little credit since this was starting to turn into a police bashing thread.

    Oh and I'm glad you didn't get touched by that crackhead or shot by the cops, that shit would SUUUUUUUCK. and yeah, I don't thinkt hat shit just happens for any reason, you should definately take the coincidences seriously.
