      I'm sorry that happened to you. Very traumatic. The real perpetrator could have been there though, so it's a double-edged sword. Cops are damned if they do and damned if they don't...

      Which means you have been under the micro-scope for some time only that there was no clear pretext to get you. Sorry mate, but next time wear a different face..
