The Mars Uranus Opposition – And Then There Is The Time I Was Stopped For Rape

rapist-horan.jpgSpeaking of surprise (Uranus) police (Mars) like when the Police Came To Get Me At The Airport, one time I was pulled over as a rape suspect. I was about 25.

Now I can tell you there is nothing gets your heart pumping like driving home alone late at night, passing a police car, hitting your brakes on reflex only to see them look directly at you as they pass.

Next thing I knew, the cop had made a U-turn and was coming up behind me sirens screaming.  I quickly pulled over with my heart pounding and he was at the side of my window with his gun drawn and pointed at me in all what seemed like 2 seconds. I looked at him dumbly.

He looked at me dumbly so I looked at him dumbly some more and then he looked at me dumbly… and then he lowered his gun.

“I thought you were a rapist,” he said. Is that shocking or what?

“I am not a rapist,” I said. I almost said, I am the kind of person who gets raped though…. also just on reflex.

“No, you’re a woman. We are looking for a man,” he said. “He just raped a woman and he is driving a car just like yours, same color.”  The car was not that common actually.

“Oh.  Well it’s not me, you better keeping looking,” I said.

“Yes, have a good night, ma’am.”

  1. I had the same thing happen. The difference being that they thought that I was a guy that they had just had a high speed chase with.

  2. woooooooah. scary. all my life I’ve had an unnatural fear of the police, seriously big fear. recently I realized that’s no longer the case. what a fucking relief.

  3. I am scared of the Police, not in Spain where I live and where they all carry guns, because you can nearly always rationalize with them. I’m pretty sure they get very good training in defusing and calming down situations.

    No, I’m scared of the Police in the UK, where I grew up, even though most of them don’t carry guns, because you can’t rationalize with them and they take a zero tolerance approach to every tiny infringement, enjoying their power. I get the impression it’s even worse in the States. No tolerance + guns = very bad mix.

    I got stopped for speeding once in California and the cop had his hand on his gun butt as soon as I reached for my driving licence. What is that? You risk getting shot for a traffic violation?
