Being stopped, frisked, searched, handcuffed, arrested, placed into the back seat of a police cruiser, taken to jail, questioned, fingerprinted, booked, and held over for trial on criminal charges is a humiliating and frustrating experience for anyone. For those who “don’t know the system,” it can be downright frightening.
