If you saw a lot of police activity on Jackson Street, here's why

A person was reported running behind houses between Maple Street and Morton Avenue, Batavia, and members of the Local Drug Task Force happened to be in the area and took the young man into custody.
The person was cuffed and questioned while other law enforcement officers also by chance, apparently, who were in the area (Batavia PD and State Police) stopped by.
A search of the area found nothing amiss.
With no further reason to hold the young man, he was going to be released, police said.
Trespassing my arse, how about "harassment" ??
A trooper followed me a few blocks on Ellicott St. Thur. evening, While attempting
to view inside my vehicle, the trooper was driving in the bike lane for at least a block.
When he finally lit me, he walked up to the passenger side and asked the passenger if his seat belt had been on the entire time he was behind us, which it was buckled as always in my vehicle. Myself and another passenger assured the officer the seatbelt
was being worn. That should have been the end of the stop, but next he starts asking questions, where are you going, how old are you, then asks for my lic. and reg.
I've done nothing to provoke this officer to pull me over, let alone be subject to
answer any questions, its really none of his business where I'm going, or the
age of my passengers.
It's a good thing my "papers" were in order.
With that said, you should know who, "who" is.
Looks to me like the police need to lay off a few officers, why were they all hanging out in the same area? I didn't hear about any major arrests in the city over the past couple days, so that can't be the reason.
Maybe they were taking turns harassing drivers who were doing nothing wrong, except for being in an area full of bored police officers.
Once again, the great police state rears its ugly head.
Well at least I now know why so many police were in the area
