Of course someone would be a dick and make sure a friend was filming them doing it.  I assume this was more for the sake of vandalizing nee art rather than malice, but that is probably giving too much credit to the yobbos who did it.

Brunswick police offered a statement to NEWS CENTER Maine late Wednesday afternoon, claiming they were seeking two individuals who allegedly rode on sidewalks and left marks in the street.

What are the odds the two vandals are police officers?

ME have any hate crime laws that this person can be prosecuted under?

A single snow flake can ruin your day.

Trust me. I'm Canadian.

they got a good shot of his plate.  should be no trouble to fine him for reckless driving, destruction of property, etc.   i'd be his license isn't exactly clean either. i suspect the next story is going to be how his bike got impounded because he has several unpaid fines.

A lot of bikers are attention whoring assholes. Who knew?

I am concerned that a state that re-elected Senator Collins would have citizens that would do such a thing.

Hope that bloated, shiat-encrusted hobgoblin's taint is exposed, loses their job, and enjoys the notoriety that comes from being an outspoken bigot.

Southern Maine is pretty pro-LGBT in the sense that it's pretty common to see lots of pride flags flying, the Portland area (near-ish to Brunswick) has had an open gay community for 30+ years, the state was among the first to legalize gay marriage, etc.  That said, once you get outside the population centers, there's plenty of right wing dickishness to go around.  In that part of the state, they're a minority but as usual they make themselves obnoxiously loud when they crawl out from under their rocks.

How sadly damaged that guy was, to feel so personally attacked by some stripes of paint. They were obviously calling him queer if he DIDN'T do something to affirm he is hetero. As if the bike didn't already confirm how manly he was. Definitely hetero, absolutely, and not at all secretly a little worried he isn't. Now to go hang out with an exclusively male, manly, macho bunch of guys in leather, sit on big, greasy, vibrating machines, and talk about... um, those dang queers everywhere.

Definitely not closeted.

Brunswick is nice. I'm guessing a lot of gay men kept sucking their dicks so they had to do something about it.

I miss that rainbows were just intrinsically cool all on their own with nothig but the majesty of nature on display to appropriate and be awed by.
Now we've ruined it, now it's a political/culture statement and no longer just, who don't enjoy the majesty of a rainbow of colors?

I am glad for anyone that needs a symbol that gets one.
but god dam it now we can't just enjoy rainbows any more. Now rainbow suspenders are a political statement and you can't just enjoy and want to have rainbow imagery to be seen cause fooking rainbows are awesome all on their own, now like it or not you are political messaging if you sport a rainbow of colors anywhere in anyway.

You should ask the both Hindus and Native Americans how they feel about having a certain good luck symbol stolen from them forever

Maybe he was trying hard to make his tires rainbow colored. Kidding, but seriously he has to have some paint all over that bike, so it shouldn't be hard to find him.

"Biker vandalizes new pride crosswalk hours after being painted"

I might be tempted to vandalize something too, if I had been painted like that poor biker, as the headline seems to imply.

he is probably off wondering why all these homos keep sucking his dick.

If your crosswalk can be "ruined" by a rubber-tired motor-vehicle traveling over it, you need better crosswalks.

Vacationed in OOB for 8 summers in a row, early August. Twice is snowed on us while we were there.

Just like every state...

I'm straight. I'll take a bro-job anytime someone wants to offer.

It's an early start to pandering month.   That one month of rainbow washing and pretending to care while not changing anything.

God forbid that wearing whatever you want might show a degree of empathy for a historically persecuted group.

Went to college in Brunswick and lived there for 12 years. It's a great town and community. Very sad.

/Go Bowdoin!
