So why couldn't the bicyclist go around the cop, mind his own business, and keep his mouth shut?

Sounds like the bicyclist wanted some attention so he got it...

CruiserTwelve: I agree with everything you said but I'll add this: In my experience with three different law enforcement agencies, cops that are bullies rarely last very long. They burn out quickly because they find out police work is generally boring and repetitious, or they get tired of being constantly scrutinized and disciplined for their bad behavior.


I find this hard to believe- if the bad cops 'burn out' quickly, then there would be no more bad cops. People who would make bad cops wouldn't apply to such a "boring and repetitious" job.

Of course, there ARE bad cops, so, since the logic is sound, the assumptions we start with ("cops that are bullies rarely last") must be wrong.

Stay fat, America.

Also, a speed limit for cyclists, seriously??


It looks like a mixed use path. If that is the case you need a speed limit to stop cyclists from going 20-30 mph and running over little old ladies walking their dog.

CruiserTwelve: Tymast: CruiserTwelve: Deathfrogg: Felony arrests get them the promotions. Traffic citations do not.

I suggest you research the promotional system in the LAPD.

That being said, I'm sure the cop was assigned to patrol the bike path because of complaints and he was just trying to do what he was assigned to do. He stopped a violator and got an argument so he wrote an attitude ticket. I don't agree with attitude tickets so the cop was wrong in doing that, but I doubt this was as big a deal as it appears to be.

hey, do you cops have to wear weights to go swimming? must be hard when you walk on water all the time

Read my post again, especially the part that says this:

"the cop was wrong in doing that"

Then tell me more about the "walk on water" thing.


You know what they say about everything before the ", but" in a sentence.

The legend is that LAPD is pretty tame compared to what it was in those days. Not sure how true that is, though.

Somewhat true. But the average citizen wasn't harassed like today. Back then the small percentage of the population with criminal behavior anybody they thought might possibly be a criminal or darker than a caramel had the fear put in them. The guy riding his bicycle was never a problem. There's a difference between rolling a perp for snatching a purse and tackling a skateboarder for skating where he shouldn't be.


There, fixed that for you.

Subby, I think it just goes to show how rare it is for them to get recorded. Probably less than 1% of the time they are engaged in morally, ethically or legally bankrupt behavior.

That is just the nature of our police force, it corrupts from within as there is too little accountability for these people.

I happen to know Chris in person and helped share this virally. The comments above show how blinded by reality so many farkers are. The cops were blocking the path. He had to switch sides to ride past. Its a huge possibility the cop recognized him as someone who does activism in the area. He's also a Veteran. And I doubt he was speeding either as he was recovering from a leg injury.

/the more you know
 
2013-01-19 12:14:00 PM  

Tat'dGreaser: Wait a minute, at what point does he start recording? If it's after he's been stopped by the officer, we're supposed to take his word that he didn't do anything wrong? Most police officers will give you a break if you're not a dick.


Well, I think as soon as you have this on tape:

"Listen to me, sir. The reason why I'm going to write you for unsafe speed is because you are arguing with me"

...you're pretty much guaranteed the cop's actions are not going to see the light of court...

We have become a society where lying is polite and plain-speaking honesty is criminal. The police are creative contributors to society in this, and only this respect.

Yes, cyclists can act like jerks, so can cars, so can pedestrians, so can everyone. Why the particular hate over bikes? Plus, that guy was riding a granny beach cruiser ON THE BEACH. I could see hating on some spandex clad speed demon, but this guy? Come on.

Yep, 15 MPH on our local "bike paths", too, which allow any non-motorized use. There are plenty of bikes using them, but also pedestrians (who often have an iPod plugged into their ears, so can't hear me coming), joggers, grannies with their walkers, little kids, roller- and skate-boarders, dogs, etc, I have two horns...a classic bell and an airhorn for the dumbshiats who can't hear the bell over the sound of whatever shiat is playing on their iPod.

I've seen city cops with hand-held radar guns on the path, too...tho always at the same spot at the bottom of a hill where it'd be easy to exceed the speed limit. 15 MPH works for me on the bike path. If I need to go faster I use the surface streets.

I live close to that path. Its actually supposed to be bike only but people walk and run on it all the time so technically, the cop should be removing those on foot. I am not familiar with the multitude of redundant laws, so I don't know if he should be ticketing the walkers/runners, or if there is a speed limit on the path. I have never seen a speed limit posted, so if it exists, its only in the cop's head.

payattention: You mean the 'bad publicity' of harassment, injury, and even deaths that were caused by the very people who were supposed to 'protect' us from these very things? Face it, if you guys did not desire to be seen as 'above' the rest of the population, if you did not always act like you were the Lord's gift to society, if you would stop acting like your crap does not stink, if you would just admit you have problems in your department as opposed to 'good ole boy network'ing to save those who created such 'bad publicity' in attempt to back up your 'holier than thou' attitude, then you might just find the rest of us won't have the reactions some of the people on here are having. Not that you should worry about anonymous commentary, but for those who directly suffer from the people who say they are here to 'servei and protect' when they are really here to stroke their own ego and prove their overblown sense of superiority, I doubt they will be so bland as to say it is 'bad publicity'.

I was reading a review about the movie "Gangster Squad" and the reviewer said the portrayal of LAPD cops in that movie wasn't close to how it was back in the 40s and so. The reviewer said a close portrayal of how the LA cops were like is shown in "LA Confidential" where the cops repeatedly tried to frame people for crimes they didn't commit and did anything to close a case, plus treated minorities like crap. One reference about LA cops.

The trouble is, once that path is there, and you avoid it because of the speed limit, and the overcrowding that made the limit necessary, you get the "Why don't you use the bike path?" bit. Bike paths are for pedestrians and children as far as I'm concerned. Walking is a better workout than fifteen MPH on a bicycle. Unless you are riding a bicycle against a stiff headwind, or uphill.

The area where that happened has (off the top of my head) 3 picnic areas, a dog park, a BMX park, and a couple of little beach areas along the river. So it's going to tend to be congested after 5pm on a Friday in June.

I bike to work everyday in regular clothes and on a "regular" bike, and I definitely encounter some bikers who are complete tools to both cars and other bikers, acting like they own the road. On the other hand, about 95% of my trip is in a dedicated bike lane and I've almost been hit 10+ times by cars turning through the bike lane, using the bike lane to drive in or pass cars near intersections, and just generally not paying attention. I can see where the biker jerks get their rage from, cause at some point the lack of concern for your safety in the interest of saving a few seconds commuting starts to grate on you.

Slappajo: How is mouthing off to a cop (who was doing something completely unrelated to the bicyclist) as you go around him the "right" thing to do?


You don't see how parking a motorcycle on a bike path is unrelated to a bicyclist?

Fat cop was too stupid to realize or too lazy to care that he was impeding traffic. He should get called out on that.

Saying "get out of the way, asshole" to some asshole who's in everybody's way is always the right thing to do.


I know right? Every time there's a traffic accident and the police have a lane of traffic blocked off and I have to merge into another lane, I always yell something at the cops.

CruiserTwelve: muck4doo: Look at this gun grabbers. This is who you think should be defending you and have your interests at heart.

In the "gun grabber" fantasy world, wouldn't the cops actually be the gun grabbers?


Why yes, yes they would.

Venice was my old stomping grounds. I see nothing has changed in 20 years.

A traffic accident in a bicycle lane?

My statement was made under the assumption that it is not against the law or that it is permitted for police officers to use a bike path IF it is parked there because they are doing their job.

If it is parked there so he has a shorter walk to the hot dog stand, then he shouldn't be parked there. But I still think the bicyclist is still a dick for mouthing off as he went around him. Just go around him. I go around bicyclists who are on the road all the time in my car. They're impeding traffic. Should I yell at each one of them?

However, if he was doing something related to his job, the the bicyclist should STFU and mind his own business.
