early morning: me, my fiancée (baby)and son stops at a store, my son who's only 5 months old at the time went to sleep so I told baby go ahead I'm gone carry our son and catch up to her.so upon me making my way threw the store this guy bumps me as I'm trying to prevent contact by tucking my shoulder and shielding my son. I apologized and kept moving after noticing his lack of apology and fault. approxiamitly 5 mins later same guy bumps into me and my son who's in my arms woke now due to the aggressive nature of his bump. I stopped, checked my son for injuries and turned to this guy who kept walking, requesting an apology for bumping into me with my son in my arms and waking him up. His reply was "what you gone do about it". caught off guard by his reply I said "so you not gone apologize", he repeated his self saying " what you gone do about it". I ran off gave my son to baby to further assure he was out of harms way due to this already being our second encounter in less than 10 minutes. Upon approach of same location in which this guy never moved, still not aggressive but more stern I said so you're not gone apologize for bumping into me with my son in my arms he turned like he was gone walk away, then turned back toward me and said it again "what you gone do about it". next thing I know he was under the clothes rack, with a lady I presumed to be his wife come running up saying "STOP, he's a COP"... now I've been going to court for 4 months and the offered me a deal that I wasn't eligible for, for 3months and come to find out if I would have signed that "deal" it would have voided the plea and trial and they could have sentenced me to anything within my guideline. Now trial is set and truthfully my concern is my family if I'm found guilty. the max penalty is 6months county jail. Just want to know it's people out there that would have stood up for human morals and still demand respect and can protect their family even IF it's not just in the eyes of justice because this man assaulted me and my son twice then press charges against me for defending us toward a possible third bump/ assault. no one tend to want to mention the fact that if he's a cop or how he suppose to be an advocate for peace. I feel right in my decision to protect my family/ son and would have never did that to another person with their child in their arms. please find it in your heart to help me and my family. I really believe he intentionally bumped me, because if he didn't attempt to apologize or see if the baby was ok. Furthermore becuase I'm an african American man, with a mild muscular build, i'm presumed to be the aggressor, and suppose to continue to accept disrespect or abuse. When the first time I turned the other cheek and even apologized when I did nothing wrong, or harmful.
