She was at a truck stop in Connecticut. I lived there for 14 years before moving to Texas and I can say that there are plenty of actual prostitutes at the truck stops there. I'm not really surprised at all, late at night, girl who's walking not driving, at a truck stop ect. I don't really blame the cops.
I agree 36, but read my factors that lent to the police's decision. I went to go piss in a truck stop bathroom near New Bristol at the young age of 13 and a woman outside of the bathroom propositioned me for sex. This was during the damn day. Just imagine the same location at night.
I've been stopped by the police for walking around late at night. I work overnights and travel through a bunch of different neighborhoods, I've always been allowed to continue on my way. OP your problem is that you're young enough to be living with your parents. The police were just looking out for you.
If the cops thought you were a prostitute, then there is a possibility some random guy might assume you're a prostitute. He may have even pulled you into his car/truck if you refused. You should count your lucky stars it ended the way it did. Don't make yourself look like a slut if you're planning on wondering around the streets alone in the dark; you'll attract unwanted attention.
For every decision there's an adverse reaction. if we lived in a perfect world those reactions would all be positive because we don't live in a perfect world, however you need to guard yourself. if people don't guard themselves then bad things will happen. Be smart or live with the consequences.
In these times did you really think "going for a walk at 1am to clear your head" would really turn out well?
When the cops asked if you were a prostitute you should have said, " that depends, how much are you willing to pay?"
It doesn't matter how, she was a young female that looked unhappy wandering around a truck stop. The cops jumped to conclusions and picked her up without proof. They're morons, likely (to go off stereotypes, though they could just as easily be big city cops) small town cops with hero complexes and too much free time that they spend 'studying' by watching cops, drinking beer, and patting themselves on the back.
61- I agree. Although OP might not like being taken home by the cops at the time, I'm sure she will appreciate it in the end. Personally I'd much ether explain to my parents that I was going for a walk and the cops took me home instead of explaining to them that i was raped.. So I think the cops did the right thing and I'm glad you're okay and safe OP:)
