    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.

        But they're not profiling, just ask them...

    Be the kind of person your dog thinks you are.
