So you are stereotyping entire LE personnel? If someone has been questioned aka as harrassment in your book that many times by LE perhaps you should look inward.

It didn't matter what time of day it was (between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.), if I'm walking casually down the street, that isn't suspicious behavior.

Running? Loitering? Talking with other people? Sneaking down darkened roads and alleys? All that is. Walking down the sidewalk on a well-lighted road is in no way suspicious.

But I've been stopped for it. And it seemed like they needed five or six guys to question me.

I'm a white female and have had the same treatment. It has nothing to do with skin color.

I take it you've never been thrown out of the theatre.

Who do you think does it? The ticket taker, the guy selling overpriced sodas and candy bars and popcorn? No...the ushers.

Yes you take it correctly that I have never been thrown out of a theatre. LOL

Your seatmate? What is a seatmate? Were you sitting on someone's lap?

Yeah, and you need to shut your popcorn hole at movies.

There are codes of conduct in movie theatres. One, is that you don't chit chat during the movie because it disturbs the other moviegoers. A whisper once in awhile is one thing but talking loud enough for others to hear is quite another. They didn't buy a ticket to hear you talk. You sound like you just like to defy any authority from your posts then you wonder why you are "harrassed" all the time.
