I used to believe that my pulse from when my head was against a pillow was a police man's feet stomping to come upstairs and get me.I always pictured them looking like ythose rescue heros but life size and with guns and much scarier. i was terrified that one would take me away to kjail and i would stay there forever and ever

my parents had me convinced as a child that there were special kids police. whenever i had a tantrum they would literally get on the phone and tell the kids police that i had been bad and that they would need to come and get me. i would scream and cry and tell my mum to call them back and tell them i would be good (which she did)

My mother always said I should write a book called, "I Useda Think.." Finally There's a place out there for all the rediculous things "I Useda think" as a child. One of them goes like this..

I Used to think that it was illegal to eat in your car. As me and my mother did this all the time, I always got so scared and put all the food under the seats every time we passed a police car.

I believe that police ran Dunkin' Doughnuts and the reason they ate so many was because it helped them fight the bad guys.

It could happen...

When I was younger, I was terrified of riding in a fast car, so to get my mother to slow down I'd shout that she was going to get a "lottery ticket" if she didn't stop speeding.

When i was little, my older sister and cousin (who were 5 at the time) locked my uncle's keys in his car, so my uncle, slightly angry, called the police to get his car unlocked. Well my sister and cousin believed he called the police to get them arrested, so they hid under my bed until my uncle finally made me tell him where they were.

On a rest stop during a long road trip there was a parked police car. My mom told us that if we ran fast enough past the car, it would think you were speeding and the lights and siren would go on. I believed it long enough to get very tired running past, which was probably the plan.

When I read the newspaper about a person who was 'jailed with bond set of what amount' or a person was 'released without bond,' I thought that the person was jailed with James Bond.

When I was little, we lived in a state that had a law that required all children under the age of 5 to be in a car seat. Well, I was about four or so, maybe even a bit younger, and I was already too big to fit in a car seat, so I didn't ride in one.

In case we were ever pulled over, my parents coached me into telling the police I was five. They would ask, "How old are you?" I would say "Four" and they would ask, "How old are you when the polieceman asks you?" And I would say "Five"

The thing was, I didn't understand the concept of what they were trying to do. I thought there was some law that when I turned five years old, my parents had to take me to the police station so the policeman could ask how old I was. So when I actually turned 5, I remember wondering when the policeman was going to ask me how old I was.

I guess if my parents had been pulled over before I was five, there would have been trouble. Lucky for them, it never happened.

my brothers told me that whenever you went to sleep you had to keep your arms inside the duvet. And if your arms were ever out of the duvet then you would get arrested by the police as having your arms outside of the duvet was against the law. I believed this until i was 8 when i saw that my brothers had their arms outside of the duvet.

When the police are talking about "rap sheets," I thought that the criminals were making rap music.

For some reason, I thought if you were arrested by the police, they were protecting you from something, like, if you were being robbed, they'd arrest you. I'd hear on the news about there'd been some protest and twelve arrests, and think "good, those twelve people will be alright then". Not sure how that happened.

When I read the news about crime and saw the word "rap sheet," I thought that "rap sheet" is where you compose songs on it to make rap music.

When I was about five, I was bored, and I decided to rip the tag off a mattress. "DO NOT REMOVE UNDER THE PENALTY OF LAW." I was afraid that the police would get me for at least 2 weeks!

I didnt rip the tag off! Honestly!

I used to belive, when I was little, that police used to just shoot people. They shouted "Freeze!", then fired.

When I was little, I overheard a policeman on a TV show say, "You're under arrest". I thought that meant that the person being arrested was about to go to sleep (rest).

I used to want to be a police woman. Why, you ask? Perhaps to fight crime, and make the world a better place for all my bunny friends?

Actually, I just wanted to "undress" bad guys, because I misunderstood the phrase, "You're under arrest!"

Say it quickly and you'll see the confusion right there.
