Earl Sampson has been stopped and questioned by Miami Gardens police 258 times in four years.
He’s been searched more than 100 times. And arrested and jailed 56 times.
Despite his long rap sheet, Sampson, 28, has never been convicted of anything more serious than possession of marijuana.
Miami Gardens police have arrested Sampson 62 times for one offense: trespassing.
Almost every citation was issued at the same place: the 207 Quickstop, a convenience store on 207th Street in Miami Gardens.
But Sampson isn’t loitering. He works as a clerk at the Quickstop.
So how can he be trespassing when he works there?
Response from city officials here.
The parents of a blonde-haired Roma boy taken from his family overnight have spoken of their distress at the ordeal.
The father, who has been living in Ireland for a number of years, told how gardai came to his home late yesterday evening with questions over the identity of his two-year-old son
He said his girlfriend - originally from Bucharest, Romania who is the mother of the little boy - had been extremely distressed and unable to sleep after his son was kept overnight.
Outside their home in Westmeath, the father – who cannot be identified for legal reasons - said he was extremely relieved when he got a call from the Health Services Executive (HSE) health centre telling him he could pick up the boy at midday.
He told how his son repeatedly asked him where he had been.
This is at least the second instance since the story of Maria in Greece broke of authorities taking away blond(e) Roma children from their families on no basis other than their coloring. The first instance, also in Ireland, is not yet resolved.
