Details in first comment.

The story with your husband’s mom is wild. Makes me really count my blessings because I’ve been pulled over three times for speeding (one being 30+ over the limit and at risk for reckless endangerment) and I’ve been let go with a warning every time.

(Cont.) I was an unrestrained passenger in a car accident and my head hit the windshield (can’t remember if it cracked). The police made us sit on a curb. I got up and asked the cop the date. He told me. Apparently, I got up 3 more times to ask him the date. He told me if I care back again he would cuff me and put me in the back of the car and that’s exactly what happened. Rather observing my odd behavior and getting me medical attention, he threw me, a 12 yo little girl, in the back of his car. Someone had to drive me to my mom’s job and she took me to the hospital, where I was diagnosed with a severe concussion. With my husband, apparently his mom was stopped going 10 miles over the speed limit as she drove them to elementary school. That resulted in the cop making her get out of the car and holding a gun in her face. She had 3 kids in the car at the time.

Visiting family in the rural south as a pre-teen, walking with a relative of similar age. We walked towards a nearby property where young white children were burning crosses, yelling ‘white power’, and throwing the salute. We were scared and told an adult relative that ultimately took us to the local police station to file a report despite other relatives not believing us and saying we were just causing trouble.
