Stories of Stop & Frisk: Natasha

Natasha was on her way to the library when she was stopped and verbally harassed by the police. They insinuated she was a prostitute asking “How many blow jobs did [you] give out?”. Natasha was transitioning from male to female and identified as a woman however her identification card read male. The police were intimidating and accusational because of their perception of her and not because of anything that she’d done. She just wanted to go to the library.
