Terrorism: Stop & Search

Things I remember

She was left handed
She used a black biro
She could not spell “Surrey” or “Mansions”
She was transport police
She had half the form filled out ahead of time
I told her it should be electronic – she agreed

Things I felt

I’m already running late
I’m not white
You didn’t really think I had a bomb in my rucksack
You marked me as slim-medium there fore I am not fat (yet)

Things I did

Filled in the ethnic classification as Chinese
Smiled and walked away

Things that did not happen

She asked for my number, smiled seductively and told me what time her shift ended
A naked body search
