Police officer stares, makes kissy faces at woman

Last year, I was sitting at a bus stop and a police car was stopped in traffic right ahead of me. The policeman inside kept staring at me and wouldn’t stop. He eventually started making a kissing face at me. It was disgusting. I was 22 and he appeared to be in his 50s. I have several street harassment stories but this one was the most disturbing because it was a policeman doing the harassing.

    Next time, get the plate number or whatever code the car has, call local police. They are supposed to protect people, not make them feel unsafe and uncomfortable.

    That IS pretty disturbing. At the very least, you’d think law enforcement could work on developing better male allies.
