I was on my way back from the subway when a cop stopped me and told me that I had to show him my id.
I immediately told the cop that I wanted to know why he was stopping me.
I had not done anything wrong. He told me that I’m actually the description of a suspect that had just stolen marijuana from a recreational and medical dispensary a block down the corner. I told the officer that I had just gotten off the subway. I showed that guy my ticket stub. He still made me get down on the ground until I showed him my identification card. I honestly didn’t know anything about the theft, but the cops thought that I looked exactly like the suspect. I thought the guy was profiling until I saw the news later that day. There was a story about the theft from the recreational and medical marijuana dispensary, because the perpetrator had gotten away with almost $5,000 worth of products. I guess he had a gun and held the staff hostage while he emptied out an entire refrigerator that was filled with live resin and rosin marijuana products. The news station held up a picture of the perpetrator and they asked people for details about the crime. They wanted people to call into the station if they knew the whereabouts of the suspect. When they held up the photo, I almost spit out my drink. The guy in the picture did look almost exactly like me. I was lucky the cop didn’t shoot me in the face.
