25 years old and he'd already racked up convictions for robbery, larceny, witness intimidation, assault, resisting arrest, and trespassing?  It doesn't sound like he was on a great track there, but even more interesting is that after all of those convictions he never received a prison sentence - just probation.  Maybe if he'd been locked up for a while he would've thought better about driving on a suspended license and then trying to run from the police.

TuteTibiImperes: robbery, larceny, witness intimidation, assault, resisting arrest, and trespassing?


With the way America's laws are written, that could be one incident at a 7-11 where the clerk refused to take two 50 cent coins for a dollar cup of coffee and you yelled at him until the police showed up while drinking the coffee and said "You're arresting me!?" incredulously to the cops when they arrived.

Not that I'd know anything about the blatant unfairness of the oppressive legal system.

400 yards...so that's what...the total distance inside a football stadium (including the green space behind the goal posts)??...so wall to wall?  Jesus that's farking far to hurl ones body...

I'd think it would be longer than that.  A football field is 100 yards goal-line to goal-line, even accounting for the space inside the end-zones and behind to the wall I'd say you're looking at quite a bit more than would fit inside one stadium.

Similar thing happened to a friend of mine but it took 3 days to find him.
He hit a guardrail, went airborne. He was found at the bottom of a ravine and his motorcycle was found in a treetop.

I'm sure your scenario is exactly what happened.  Sounds like people are just profiling him.  Where's Jess Jackson and Al Sharpton?!

Wait..what?

White guy?

See?  All those crimes and not one day in prison.  The system is biased, unfair, and oppressive!

Sounds like douchebag got what was coming to him.  Carry on.

At 100 MPH when the bike hits the guard rail they get what the EMTs and cops here call the "Cheese Grater Effect" which would explain the missing leg and other wounds. Far as him being thrown 400 yards that's pretty impressive. Would be really surprised if he were still alive when he hit the ground.
 
2013-07-30 12:27:13 PM  
Maybe someone can do the math - I'm not that smart - but I can't see someone being thrown 400 yards from a motorcycle crash unless they were doing Mach 1. On ice. Downhill. With a strong tailwind.

Well, I assume the bike was a write-off, so not "nothing".

Maybe its the unit of measure that's messing you up.

How about this: "He was thrown the distance of 100 billion ants placed end-to-end."

Does that help you visualize it?  :P

More likely that the bike did most of the travelling post-crash.  If the bike rolled or slid a long way it could easily account for most of the 400 yards of separation.

Saved taxpayers a lot of money. But I wish he didn't put other people in danger on his way out. Should have just offed himself in the privacy of his home.

what i think may be more likely is he hits the guard rail and goes one way.  the bike stays on the road and slides 400 yards.  i could be completely wrong, but i feel like a bike might slide on the road a lot farther than a person.

the bike's got a lot of intertia (100+ mph with more mass), probably a better coefficient of friction, and it's much less likely to break apart like a person.

2013-07-30 12:32:37 PM  
400 yards? That reminds of the sidegame in "Flatout: where you crash your car into a barrier to hurl the driver as far down as you can into a dartboard.

And from reading the article, it sounds like the guy's motto was YOLO.
 
2013-07-30 12:32:44 PM  
The comments are gold.  We have one who has "inside information" that the cops are covering something up, and another that swears the cops moved the body......

guy seems to be a douchebag who brought this on himself.  too bad.

More likely he was thrown a few feet and the motorcycle slid 400 yards farther down the road.

FTA: "He looked like he was trying to crawl out of there," George Santiago told The Eagle-Tribune yesterday. "We feel he was still alive (after the crash). We won't know more until the autopsy."

Surprised much?

There's a good GP clip on YouTube somewhere where the rider eats it at high speed and the bike travels onward and upright unaffected for at least another couple hundred yards.

400 yards?  This is when reality emulates a cartoon.
 
2013-07-30 12:35:43 PM  
In order to achieve that distance he would have needed to use a trebuchet.  At 200mph on my bike and a low side skid I might be able to get 100 yards, downhill,  After that the energy is all used up.  Nothing fishy here at all, move along citizen, here is his rap sheet so he was a bad guy ok?!?  IT was a GOOD KILL, stop questioning the police.

You'd think they'd track the skid back to the guard rail and search there.  Perhaps the bike didn't slide for a quarter mile, but rather stayed on 2 wheels till it hit a guardrail further down?
