When I've been sectioned in the past. The police have performed searches of my person in the hospital. When being transported to the hospital by police they have cuffed me for some reason. Anyone else been mistreated by the police when they are involved?

Why are the police mistreating you guys? That's mean! They are abusing their power.

When I was asked if I had a police record I said, yes, Walking On The Moon.

I may have exaggerated a bit. I did have an experience in a police station and it was interesting. I was also having a severe psychotic episode.

The police are like my group of people
Some are good some are bad.
I don't like the mind set of some of them it feels like they are still little boysw trying to catch the 'baddies'
I got rested and this police man was mashing my head into the wall of the car.
And the new handcuffs they use are BARBARIC
I had wrist problems for months afterwards!
My lawyer even said they should not be allowed to use the cuffs they do now.
Things are more complex than the police think.

Sorry. Thanks for correcting me. :)
The fact that you realise it does make me humble. You shouldn't go around correcting people of course but it's crept into our language so much now that I find it incredible! And you know what, most likely in a few decades everyone will do it as the norm and the English language will have evolved into the txt-spk format, heaven forbid! :D
