To Kill a Mockingbird
"Freeze! Mr. Robinson put your hands behind your head right now! Slowly, get to your knees. Lay on your stomach now!" said the police officer as I walked out of my house.
I did what he told me to do and I got on my stomach, and as I did so they jumped on me and slapped handcuffs on me as fast as you could say pancake. They then picked me up and hurled me into the police car, where I sat as they told me my rights. I didn't know what was going on at all at the time so I didn't argue, I had to wait till I got to the police station before I could figure out what I had actually done.
"Sir, you have been told to us to be a suspect in a rape case that had happened earlier this morning," exclaimed Officer Bennett as he placed me into the jail cell.
"Don't I get a phone call at least? I know that is one of my rights!" I screamed at the officer.
"You can have your phone call, but you just have to wait till we actually book you, that cell is just a temporary for now, in a few minutes we will be moving you to your own cell," he said.
As I wait in this cell with these 5 other guys, 2 white boys, and 3 black guys, all I could think about was what had happened. I don't remember raping anyone, so I have no clue who would think such a thing. Just like the one officer said, a few minutes later they took me out of the cell, fingerprinted me, took my mug shot, and gave me my phone call that I have been waiting for.
