Default Harassment from local police...

Iíve been out for two months after serving 11 months in a young offenders prison and Iím now on probation. Basically, the island I live on is almost ďcrime freeĒ and consequently the police get bored. Since my release I have been stopped and searched four times by the police. I was locked up for possession of an offensive weapon so I can kind of see their point.

However it is quite upsetting for me each time it happens because it is always in public and I know that people who see me shoved up against a wall or a police car will be thinking that Iíve offended again. Also, each time it happens they always seem to like cuffing my hands behind my back, which brings back horrible memories. When it happened today I politely asked them not to cuff me but they said it was for MY safety as well as theirís.

My question is, should I try to make some kind of complaint or will this just make things worse? Should I just suck it up and hope they get bored of it soon?

I try my best to be calm and polite each time as I donít want to violate my probation by getting arrested for resisting a search. Are they deliberately trying to get me to mess up and end up back inside?
