LAPD / Racist and bad Treatment
A couple of days back, the police forced into our apartment saying that they have heard a complain of the domestic violence. I was surprise because the only thing that happenned was our child was crying during that time. They come inside and started searching our small apartment and started to interogate me.
In our bedroom, there is space where we keep our deities and do Puja. My wife is a little bit more of the religious than me - so she request them not to go to that space with shoes on.
However, they did not listen and just went wherever they wanted. They said they did not have to remove their shoes. This I think is a disrespect to other culture. I am Indian in US on the H1B Visa and work of the Vierzon and pay tax on income help the economy. Later, when they did not find anything, they just left. We were dumb-founded and outrage. We were scared too for the safety... In our building, we are the only Indian/foreigner. This might probably leave a permanant scar in the child's mind when he sees his father interrogated for nothing.
Can someone advice if we can take the matter to someone? Any advice or help will be greatly appreciated. I need to know of the lawyer and of the damages could be claimed for this injustice. At the very least we feel officers involved need to take of the diveristy training class to learn the respect for other Culture and Values.
