Gregory Levy said he views stops as a “gateway,” a means
for police to investigate whether a person has committed a
crime – mainly drug crimes. He’s been stopped for a crosswalk
violation in 2019. In 2017, Levy was ticketed for a loud
muffler and driving with a suspended license, suspended
because he’d fallen behind on child support, according to
court records. The loud muffler charge was dismissed, but
he was fined $260 on the other charge. “Black people get
targeted because they (police) are looking to find drugs all
the time,” Levy said. “It’s like we’re trapped.” Photo by Max
