A: What is the question? I don't doubt you were being followed, and the police were just looking for reason to charge you with something. Whether it's "harassment" really depends on whether they had legal reasons to stop you each time. It sounds like they did, at least for the time they got you with CCW.

Part of the negotiations for your charge now will be premised on your willingness to cooperate. If you don't have anything to say, or refuse, then you might face conviction on the CCW charge. On the other hand, you should approach any agreement to cooperate with caution. Many people have been in your position and promised the world by police for their cooperation....
