    Police Bullying and Harassment

    On Thurs March 13 at approx 4:15pm, I, Wendell varner, and my 12 yr old son was stopped as we were leaving his school by Officer Crawford of the ncpd. He then said that I disrespected him by saying "man" instead of sir. I apologized, as at this point i was intimidated. He then said he smelled something, but never said what he smelled. He then searched me and my son without permission. He then searched the vehicle, even removing the items from my son's bookbag. He then came back to us and told us to remove our shoes and socks. He then looked in my pants to my underwear. I recorded the incident with my cell phone. My freedom was violated and I was bullied as I felt helpless to defend myself from this injustice. I was helpless as this Officer violated my son, who I couldn't protect. My son is now nervous when we see law enforcement. I am 33 yrs old and have been a taxpayer in the city since 14yrs old. I feel like the city that I support does not support its citizens. There was no probable cause for the extensive search. This is a criminal act as it removes the freedoms and protection provided to us by our Constitution. I have it all on video and would like to share it with you to help resolve this issue in our community.
