Why when I show odd beliefs and behaviors related to Autism Spectrum Disorder, the police do not really care? They just analyze my odd behaviors and drive by.

I tend to try my best to mask my symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder in front of police officers, but not all the time.

Why should they care? They are busy catching criminals.

Autism is not a crime.

Oh, you're sinking back into the paranoia that was caused by someone misleading you. Hopefully life experience will help

I also had profound prosecutory delusion that currupted police officers are plotting against me.

I will get therapy soon.

not a representative sample

it could be for a lot of different reasons

your post does not contain enough information to determine the reason

or maybe they did not see you do anything too odd

or they have seen a lot of odd behavior

or maybe they were not paying attention

Odd behavior is in itself not a crime unless you give good reason for them to suspect your up to no good.

Most seasoned officers can tell the difference between criminal behavior and odd behavior caused by mental health issues although sometimes they do cross over.

It’s best you speak about your concerns to your parents/ care givers who can tell you if your doing something wrong

Cops have bigger fish to fry. You know....muggers, gang members, rapists, etc.

They have no time, especially in cities, to harass somebody who exhibits autistic behaviors in the street. They probably wouldn't think it's autistic, actually.

Autistics are not a threat, so the police don't care about your autism, even if you are speeding and you get a ticket.

I don't trust the police anymore, but autism is not the reason. If they try to shoot a 16 years old boy in a tractor in Heerenveen (the Netherlands), and then accuse him of threatening the police and throw him in jail; that is a real threat to me. It is a part of the Dutch dictatorship.

Perhaps they are good at knowing when odd behaviors are something to care about.
Not all cops are s**t!

They would probably care if you carried a knife.
Odd people are not always the dangerous ones.
Odd behaviour can be seen in people with Down's syndrome, ASD, stroke or even NT.

Off topic but I heard about that really shocking behavior by police at demonstration.

Apparently the gov claim it’s all about reducing nitrogen caused by farming.

Since nitrogen is about 3/4 of the air on earth it all sounds a lot of rubbish to me.

I am sorry for being paranoid, it just that someone mislead me into believing bs about police officers, and I used to have profound prosecutory delusion that SWAT Team is plotting against me, and that was in 2016.

Have you tried having some casual conversations with policemen so you can see from experience they are not like that?
