Re Paul Craig Roberts` column, "Americans Are Oppressed, Too"
I couldn`t agree more with Paul Craig Roberts` column, "Americans Are Oppressed, Too." Last January I was stopped and frisked for no reason at all while walking in my hometown of Sebring in Florida. I wrote a letter to Vdare.com about this horrible experience, "Walking While White."
Since then, I`ve been stopped while walking at night by at least eight other cops. One of them even tried to confiscate my out-of-state driver`s license, which had expired, saying I didn`t have proper Florida I.D. His supervisor thankfully made him give it back.
Needless to say, every time I venture outside my apartment, I`m extremely paranoid, afraid I`ll get harassed by a cop. (I`ve never committed a crime in my life.)
I`ve contacted lawyers, none of whom think it`s a big deal.
This has never happened to me before.
America is truly a police state now.
Keep up the good articles on VDARE.com; keep writing the truth about what this country has turned into.
