Godscrack: Cop should have ran his ass over.Dick rice burner jockeys like to play games by hitting their brakes to scare people behind them.
Slaxl: I don't see what happened. He rides past the cop, and then the cop pulls him over? I don't get it.
LesserEvil: Well, to be honest, aren't motorcycles supposed to stay to the left side of the lane?As for the cop, they always tailgate people. It's rather stupid, but it is what they do... if I'm on a motorcycle, I sure as hell am keeping aware of my surroundings and somebody tailgating me. If nothing else, put your hazards on and slow to a stop and ask the police officer why he is following so close BEFORE it becomes an accident.
Ego edo infantia cattus: I knew someone who got t-boned by a cop who was running a red light without their sirens / lights on. It totaled her car, and messed up her back. The dash camera footage went "missing" All of the officers who responded to the indecent lied under oath and said that it was her fault. It took her years in court just to get her medical bills paid, and I think that's because one of the paramedics finally came forward about how the cops acted at the scene. None of the cops were prosecuted for lying under oath or obstructing justice.Remember kids, police officers are your friends just another street gang.
Wise_Guy: I get that it's the cops fault because he rear-ended him, but the guy on the motorcycle was driving like a moron.
Lsherm: Wise_Guy: I get that it's the cops fault because he rear-ended him, but the guy on the motorcycle was driving like a moron.Yeah, the cop only had one cogent point: the motorcyclist was driving damn near on the shoulder for no good reason.
TheMega: Lsherm: Wise_Guy: I get that it's the cops fault because he rear-ended him, but the guy on the motorcycle was driving like a moron.Yeah, the cop only had one cogent point: the motorcyclist was driving damn near on the shoulder for no good reason.Except for the fact that a CAR was changing lanes and you have no idea if the car driver knows you are there or not.
John Buck 41: Besides being an arrogant bastid, I was astonished how the cop became Mr. Polite the last 10 seconds of the video.Rule #1---you rear end someone? It is ALWAYS your fault. Period.
ComputerBob: Holy fark you people are idiots. A car can use the whole lane but a motorcyclist is only allowed to use one half? Jesus, it's obvious none of you ride.
ComputerBob: Holy fark you people are idiots. A car can use the whole lane but a motorcyclist is only allowed to use one half? Jesus, it's obvious none of you ride.Yes, in safety class they teach you to ride on the left half of the lane so people (in front of you) can see you in their left hand and rear view mirrors better, but there's absolutely no reason a motorcyclist can't use the entire lane to safely negotiate the street when needed. I'm not saying he/she can weave back and forth like a 4 year old, but you have every right to ride anywhere in that lane that you need to. It's not necessarily safe to ride in the oil slick in the middle, but to say he "must be on the left" means I immediately stop listening to what you have to say.There's nothing this biker did that was wrong. There's no law that says, "You must follow as close to the car in front of you as you possibly can." or "You must not put your brakes on when someone's behind you." That's just idiotic and the cop's trying to scare the guy into not getting the cop into trouble.
mrlewish: yes cops tailgate.Happened to my brothers wife. She stopped on the road got out and yelled at the cop to stop doing that.Worked for her because of her CIA badge.
American Decency Association: COP: you gettn this on film, cause i am?BIKER: great. name and id?
Happy Hours: American Decency Association: COP: you gettn this on film, cause i am?BIKER: great. name and id?No, the biker handled it correctly. Notice how they shook hands and he didn't get a ticket?Somewhat related - did anyone see COPS tonight?A guy in an old Maverick spins his wheels going around a corner. Cop pulls him over.At first, Maverick guy is polite, admits he did it to impress his passenger. Cop says he understands (used to have a '74 Gran Torino). Maverick: Like Starsky & Hutch? Cop: yeah.Cop walks back to his car, says there's no sign of intoxication, the guy was honest, is going to let him go with a warning.Cop goes back to Maverick. Maverick starts saying the cops lights are reflecting off his mirrors into his eyes. "How can I drive like that? I can't see the road?"Cop says you're pulled over right now, you don't need to see the road. Maverick guy keeps whining.Cop asks if he's had anything to drink. Maverick admits to 3 drinks.The cop is still not even going to write a ticket, but tells him he should pull over to a side street and walk home.Maverick guy keeps on being a dick and tells the cop he still has his wallet. Maverick guy realizes his wallet is in his lap.Cop then decides to give him field sobriety tests. Maverick guy flunks miserably and gets arrested for DUI.I'm telling you, it was a sight to behold. This idiot literally talked himself out of a verbal warning and into a pair of handcuffs.This is why you always treat cops politely and shut up and let them talk.
mrbach: cop should be cited for following too close and for saying stupid stuff.
OgreMagi: As a motorcycle rider, I noticed the car on the left was a possible hazard and I would have stayed back, too. Cop was a douche. When the cop said, "what do we need here?", the proper answer from the rider was, "your insurance information."
Happy Hours: This idiot literally talked himself out of a verbal warning and into a pair of handcuffs.This is why you always treat cops politely and shut up and let them talk.
kim jong-un: What city is this? Really pissed at the cop threatening the guy.
