What action can one take if they are being harassed by the cops? In the last few months it seems that my neighborhood has become flooded with the police and you can't seem to go 3 blocks without running into a cop around the corner. Isn't there some kind of limit to the number of cops in a neighborhood? I live in the suburbs for god sake. It is ridiculous that my tax dollars are being spend to hire an unnecessarily large number of cops who seem to have nothing better to do with their time other than stand around the streets and make people uncomfortable.
