Somebody should have helped out the cops and opened up their car door while these guys were white-lining.

Bolivar told the cops who his buddy was, so what is the point of his helmet cam "evidence?"

The two cyclists are accused of passing numerous cars in no passing zones and speeding over 75-mph in heavy traffic, according to a news release from teh Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

Which one of you farkers wrote this article?

It's a lot harder to win in court or get a decent plea offer if there's a video proving everything you did wrong.

Ended up being evidence that can be used in court, apparently.  The cops apparently went through it and wrote them even more tickets for doing illegal stuff.

BTW, anybody else get a bit of a giggle at 'Islamorada'? I know it doesn't have anything to do with Islam, but it just seems such an odd word to have, and I wonder if there were idiots, given that it's in Florida, pushing to change the name about a decade ago.

It's not like we wouldn't have seen the video on Youtube eventually, then everyone in the world would be laughing at their stupidity while the cops wrote tickets...

Ok, let me put it in Fark terms.  Remember your mansion in Vice City?  The one on the secluded wealthy island?  That one.

These were a couple of priveleged kids that got busted for being dumbasses.

Plus, cops don't like cameras.  Here's an opportunity to discourage their use, so cop logic  goes.

Please don't let the acts of thousands of stupid motorcyclists destroy the reputation of the two who are responsible riders.

I won't because they hang out with the two honest cops and the one reliable drummer.

About 15 years ago I was sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic on a freeway in Pittsburgh (or maybe it was Cleveland). Suddenly three motorcycles came racing between the cars, going at least 50mph, sometimes speeding up. Three young guys on crotch rockets, none of them wearing helmets.

About 15 minutes later, as I managed to creep another mile, I passed the scene of an ambulance loading a covered body, with two of the motorcyclists talking to police.

Checking the news that night I learned that someone had pulled their car in front of the lead motorcycle causing him to fly over the handlebars, head-first into a guard rail. Killed more-or-less instantly.

I felt bad because as they passed I wished that they would get into an accident.

I don't do that (as much) anymore.

The honest politician is always hanging around too.

That's like feeling bad because you wished it would be a day later 24 hours from now.

I'm somewhat confused, they say he "told them" who his buddy was, why did they need the video?

And did he just give them the video?  Article says he "inadvertently" provided the video.  Was it seized and used against him? Did he try to use it to prove his innocence or something???

And that's exactly what I expected the perp to look like.  Uncanny!
