Today, I went running. I live in a small town and people know me fairly well. It was dark when I went to avoid the heat. I was almost finished with my run when the cop comes up and asks me what I'm running from. Clearly being fat and out of shape is not a good enough alibi. FML

At least the cop cared to make sure you're safe :)

I don't think it ended well for OP.

There are 2 ways to interpret the cop's question. Like #1, I think he was asking if OP is being chased by a criminal (rather than being one.)

Well... it was the opposite of that from how the cops took it hahaha

I don't know about that. As a person of color i can't read an fml like this and assume the cop had the best intentions....

So basically Just cuz ur black u assume all cops are racist and all they want to do is oppress black people

They aren't usually so nice to stop a random person minding their own business but hey whatever!

So I'm guessing he arrested you or something op? I'm sorry maybe they will figure out you did not do anything wrong

Running is nowhere near sufficient evidence to accuse someone of breaking the law. OP doesn't have to prove anything.

This isn't North Korea you can do things outside without fear of harassment.

I hope you've learned your lesson OP. Next time walk.

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

she might be joking. orr possibly trolling. Not tooo sure haha

I took what #4 said as a joke

I hope you learned your lesson, #4. If you're making a sarcastic comment, add a smiley face or make it obvious. (EX1: I hope you learned your lesson, OP :]) (EX2: C'mon OP, you know running is outlawed.)

I was being sarcastic.

I guess he's just doing his job; you must know most joggers are lunatics and like to risk heatstroke every time they run!

Maybe he'd miss the fresh donut alert announcement across the please broadband and he was hoping you could help guide him

You dare live a healthy lifestyle in my town. Thats it, ticket.

Now you better drive home or else boy!

Yikes OP. That kinda sucks but hopefully that doesn't happen again if you choose to go running again.

Were you wearing a ski mask and dressed all in black?

Should've said "trying to beat you to the donut shop!"
