I used to belive that the law was a number of rules on a notice board outside Buckingham Palace.

Back when my family got our first VCR, I used to think the police or FBI could spy on everyone, everywhere, 24 hours a day, and even if you were just making a copy of a movie on video tape, they could immediately track you down and come after you.

When I was little I used to believe in the phone police. Whenever I would make a prank call I would at the end pretend to cry and say "I am sorry, I wont do it again theres no need for the police".

I used to believe that if your house was ever robbed, that the police department had to pay for everything you lost.

My friend's kids used to come into the room, holding their little fingers like a gun and yell, "Hands in the air, you're under duress!!" Or alternatively, "You're under the rest!" We still say this to them, thought as high schoolers they know that it is Under Arrest.

My parents always told me to behave when there was a policeman around and for a couple of years I was under the impression that if you just spoke to a policeman you were instantly sent to jail. You can imagine my terror when my father was pulled over for not wearing his seatbelt...

When I was little, I often forgot to buckle my seatbelt. My parents constantly reminded me, stating that police officers can see everything. This lead me to think that they all had x-ray vision, and many times I tried to wave at them through the car door, to see if they would be able to see through it.

When I was little, everyone around me said "Don't wave at a police car, fire truck or ambulance because then the drivers would think you were in trouble and needed them." Well, I often saw those vehicles on the road and when I did, I'd just stare at the workers in the car with a determined look on my face, probably scaring them. They'd wave at me out of politeness (because I was about 4) and i felt bad because I couldn't wave back! The one time I accidently waved at a cop car, a different one sounded it's sirens and sped past my mom's car. I thought to myself "Whew, lucky someone else waved at the same time as me!"

I thought cops were out to get me when I was three and I would scream "Get a gun! it a cop!" I just love my dad for teaching me.

When I was 4 i broke a window by throwing a stone, and my mates told me the police would come after me. For the next 4 years I was hiding whenever I saw a policeman.

when i was about 4 or 5, i first heard of "kids jail" (juvenile hall). i don't remember how i learned about it or who told me about it, but up till i was about 8, i thought it was a place where there were lots of toys and you got to go and get as many toys as you wanted. needless to say, when i learned what "kids jail" really was, i felt very stupid.

When I first started driving I always hid my cigarette when passing a police car. I didn't differentiate Mom and "the law"!

When I was little, I used to think that "drinking and driving" meant any beverage. -I would get upset when my parents would drink soda when they were driving because I thought they'd be arrested.

Up until the age of 13 I believed that cops told you to put your hands in the air so that if they chose to shoot you, you couldn't deflect the shot with your hands. Somehow I thought that if you put your hands in front of your heart, if someone shot you there it would just bounce off your hands.

I thought Jaywalking meant you crossed the street without looking both ways and holding an adults hand... I think I was 12 before I realised that I wasn't jaywalking when I didn't look both ways..
