This morning around 11 am (June 1,2015) I was dropping of a passenger in Queens, while on my way back i saw two unmarked police cars rushing towards a car . For a moment i thought that they are after some serial killer on the run, so i stopped my car. The cops stopped the car in a style, like one of those cops cars entry scene in the Hollywood movies, and started investing a gypsy cab limo driver. The gypsy cab limo driver was surrounded by 5 cops and was standing scared traumatised.
Looking at the pictures you can see two police cars parked at the back of a lincoln town car with 4 police officers standing outside and one in the car. I tried to take some pictures but these cops started staring at me specially the woman police officer at the back. So in order to avoid anymore trouble i just moved and continue my day because i already got 2 tickets this week and didn’t wanted to pay my week’s salary in fines.
Well again i will ask why the police and TLC harass and abuse cab and limo drivers, they (us drivers) just want to earn bread and butter for their family. Why there is none to raise voice for us drivers, why the powerful have to enforce their power on the weak and poor. On one side Uber is killing us and on the other side is the police, TLC clowns and traffic wardens giving us summons on daily basis.
