  • If everyone practiced open carry this would not have happened.
  • 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.

  • Cops who do this sort of thing are not really interested in fighting crime. They're interested in the power the badge gives them. They're basically lazy and go for the low hanging fruit. Such individuals are often lackadaisical with other aspects of the job and this can easily be seen by superiors who are conscious of their subordinates behavior and trained to observe their working habits outside of just keeping the positions filled and their own positions protected from scrutiny, especially when their own position is dependent on a conscientious application of the rules and responsibilities of the job.

    These people need to be weeded out early in their careers, they are unsuitable for for the work.

    That doesn't apply to everyone, at all.

    Actually,. the way I read it, the biker DID, in fact, break the law, and the cop explained to him that, more or less, he probably wouldn't have been cited for it--for the law that he did break--if he hadn't been a dick. So, kind of like every traffic cop interaction ever, huh?

    There are an awful lot of cops out there who will do practically anything to escalate a situation from a traffic citation into a felony. Felony arrests get them the promotions. Traffic citations do not.
  • Bicyclists are assholes and should be ticketed. Don't break the law and you won't have a problem! Oh right. Laws don't apply to bicyclists.
  • fark's he doin' in Italy?
  • He should have been ticketing all the retards that walk on that path. It only says bikes only about a million times.
  • Here's my plan America.

    So, we need stricter gun control. The gunsturbators need to feel like bad-asses.

    Let's send a memo, all gun owners who wish to participate are allowed to "practice" on all these bike assholes - imagine them wearing red coats, coming for your liberty.
    Once they're all gone, you need to turn in your gun.

    It's a win-win.

    It's dumb cops like this that are the reason I'm gonna get a helmet cam for the spring motorcycle start

    /also for recording funny things on my trips, and the dumbass drivers who almost always nearly run me down

    Stop driving on bike paths.

    The ticket was cancelled so it sounds like it was the cop who was in the wrong. And just because someone's acting like a jerk doesn't mean they're breaking the law. Since when does wearing a badge means the cop is assumed to be in the right?

    I hate this story because it makes me defend the bicyclist. I feel dirty over it.

    Read the article again, slowly this time. Pay particular attention to the quote where the cop outlines his rationale for giving the guy a ticket.
