    Fair was probably a bad word in hindsight. The overwhelming majority of interactions with cops dont lead to a complaint, even accounting for supressed complaints the percentage is extraordinarily low considered the nature of their job.

    I've had some run ins & including two arrests. Several times (non arrests) I was a smart ass & am lucky the cops kept their cool. I've no doubt my experiences would have been much worse if I were black.

    Bicycling while black is yet another dangerous undertaking.
