Employees at a 14th street Union Square New York City Trader Joe's store asked to check my bag and accused me of shoplifting today. I refused, they called the cops and an emt ambulance on me with their cell phones and told me to never come back to their store today even though I didn't steal anything. I finally showed them my bag when the cops arrived, they saw I did not steal anything and still accused me of shoplifting and told me never to come back to their store again. I am lucky to not be in a jail or psych ward after this incident and wonder if I have been a victim of discrimination. Is there an organization I can make a complaint to? Thank goodness there are other Trader Joe's nearby that I can go shopping at hopefully without a similar experience.
