Hope it goes through this time-for some unknown, cryptic reason, my last message was cut off before it even began-alright, then-There used to be a law back in Detroit (and I understand a few other places, but hardly nationwide.) called GENERAL PRINCIPLE which translated as "suspicion of being suspicious". The cops could just pick up anybody whose faces they disliked and they'd be held up to 36 hours uncharged while probes were done to see if they had warrants on them elsewhere in the country. From what I could see, there were definite "PROFILE" groups: hippies, bikers, stereotypically ghetto-type blacks, the "probably" homeless, overt gays, suspected prostitutes, dudes wearing gang colors. I was in on GENERAL PRINCIPLE a few times although only once did I serve all 3 days. The rest of the time I was discharged before the second day was up.
