For No Good Reason_Moinur
Description: Moinur, 19 of Queens, has lived in the US since he was two, having moved to New York from Bangladesh. “I would just walk down the streets and they would just stop me. Me and my friends went to a store and like the corner the store is on, is known for selling drugs or whatever. We just went into the store and bought a couple of Arizonas and the store sells loose cigarettes and my friend bought one, but that’s not why they stopped us. One of them was undercover police and they stopped us and asked us why we had went into the store. We were like, ‘How did you know we went into the store?’ Basically, they just stopped us, and they checked us, they frisked us, went into my pockets, they wrote down all of our names, we didn’t buy drugs, we didn’t do anything, we went into the store to buy some drinks, that’s it.”
