There’s a man in Florida who’s been arrested 62 times for “trespassing” at work. His name is Earl Samson. Miami Gardens police have stopped and questioned a 28-year-old Florida black man a total of 258 times in four years, reports the Miami Herald. In addition to the stops, Earl Sampson has been searched over 100 times and arrested 56 times. The instances have even followed him to his place of work – the 207 Quickstop – where Sampson has been arrested for trespassing 62 times even though he works at the Convenience store as a clerk.
