I've been held up at gunpoint three times. It’ a very scary feeling.
Once by LAPD, once by a druggie at a gas station and another time by a car jacker.
The police pulled me over and 'claimed' that I looked like a suspect they were after. (of course, all of us Blacks look the same
) Four squad cars just swarmed on me at an intersection in Los Angeles. They had their lights on and their guns drawn standing behind their car doors. I was instructed to get out of the car via bullhorn with my hands up.
Once they realized I wasn't the guy they were looking for, they just pat me on the pack and said; "sorry fella, have a good night". They all jumped in their cars and left.
The drug addict was at a gas station in Inglewood, CA
right beneath the final approach to LAX
after a concert at the forum. After I paid for my gas, this strung out drug addict came up to me and demanded all of my money. I told the punk I didn't have any. He pulled my coat and forced the gun up against my chest. As I reached in to my pocket to give him my wallet, this big huge dude just came out of nowhere and picked the drug addict up and threw him down like a rag doll and his gun feel out of his hand. He began beating the $h!t out of this guy. He had owed that big guy money. He might have been his dope pusher. I got the hell out of there as quick as I could.
The car-jacking situation was again at a gas station at night. This time it was in San Bernardino, CA
. This guy was standing at the gas station. When he saw me pumping gas he started begging me to give him a ride to his car that was out of gas 1 mile away. He was acting very aggressive about it and so I didn't really believe him. I told the guy I would do it but let me finish filling my tank. Once I put the gas nosil back on the tank, the guy started pulling the handle on the passenger side of my car. I jumped in started my engine and he started pounding on my window and them he reached under his shirt and pulled out a gun. I ducked down and speed off real quick. He fired a few times but missed. I ended up taking out some plants and flowers as I jumped the sidewalk and curb going on to the street.
