AIBU to report abuse of police power?

Without going into too much detail as it may be outing I was harassed by a uniformed police officer on the street and then he followed me into my place of work. This went on for an hour and forty minutes.

For the record I have committed no crime whatsoever, he just was just on some sort of dictatorship. I suspect it was possibly my religion or the fact I’m a young woman that wouldn’t give in to his bullying behaviour.

Obviously I haven’t been charged with any crime, as I didn’t commit any, so apart from the embarrassment & fear I’m no worse off in the long run. Should I leave it & rise above it? Or report it and risk being targeted again?

We don’t ask to be deified. It’s a difficult job carried out under difficult circumstances with impossible pressures placed on us. I just find some of the comments on threads like these thoroughly disheartening.

So you think police should be allowed to do as they please without scrutiny or criticism @HopefullyAnonymous ?

The police are really bad. Was told not to go to refuge after some really bad domestic abuse because my house was nicer.
