Today, I got on a bus to go to a doctor's appointment. I bought a ticket and put the ticket in a pocket, which has been partially torn. A few minutes later, transportation authorities called on the bus to pull over in order to make sure that all the passengers had tickets. When the person making the checks came to me, I couldn't at first find my ticket. He started writing me a citation and escorted me off of the bus. I dug through all my pockets for a few minutes, starting to think that it might have fallen out of my pocket or something. As he continued writing out the citation, I asked him whether there was anything I could do about it if I did end up finding my ticket. He said that since I wasn't able to provide him with my ticket at the time of the inspection, no, there was nothing I could do about it. He told me to sign the citation, which I did. Then, continuing my search, I found the ticket in the torn area of my pocket. Now very well on my way to being late for my appointment and somewhat pissed at the ticket checker, I made the mistake of letting my frustration get the better of me, and, pulling out my ticket, said "Fuck this," or something to that effect. He said that, just because of that, he was going to send the citation to my permanent address, even though the ticket cited my inability to provide a ticket, which I now could do. I said as much, and he wouldn't budge. Then, pissed and not wanting to deal with citation that, in effect, would now be a lie, I threatened him with legal action. At this point, after some heated words were exchanged, he said that he would beat me--"I'm going to beat you," or "I could beat you;" I don't remember which. I called him out for threatening and harassing me. Another passenger, who was also given a citation, overheard and verified that he had indeed threatened me. When I pointed this out to the authority's coworker, she said that she hadn't heard anything (which I believe was a lie) and that nobody would believe two people getting citations who accused the officer of something, since we weren't reputable sources. Then I asked the original officer for his ID number and name. He refused to give it to me. I asked two of his coworkers for his name, but they refused to give it to me. At this point, one of the officers said that I should really just let it go, since I wasn't getting a citation (which was news to me--the original officer never said as much). Then she said she could give me a citation for harassing them. I said that they couldn't very easily get me in trouble for harassment for asking for ID numbers and names as a result of harassment. She continued to threaten me with a citation, and I continued arguing with her that she couldn't, adding that I'd been harassed and wanted the information. They never gave it to me, although they also realized that I was technically in the right and therefore, in the end, didn't give me a citation. Do you think this counts as harassment, and do you think it would be worth going to the police with this matter? Thanks in advance for your responses, with the exception of the inevitable flame-throwing remarks this post will likely receive.
