    Obstructed license plate is a citable offense, but not something you can be arrested for in most jurisdictions. It's amazing that they would abuse their power on something like that when there should've been plenty of the same footage on their dash cams. I always wonder if something happened before the video footage that we are not being made privy to.

    I'm all for motorcycles but dozens and dozens of them blowing down a busy commuter highway together seem like a recipe to get "screwed with".:rolleyes:

    Not saying the Cop was right but whether it's bikes or open carry, these amature video guys are out looking to encounter LEO's so I don't have much sympathy.

    Pro and Cons; for or against; legal or illegal --- it still comes down to the blatant fact that we live in a POLICE STATE.
    (Brown shirts & Gestapos soon to materialize in our lifetime).
    And I am truly tired of the political police-worshipping comments normally read around forums hither and thither on the web.
    The 'militarizing' of our law-enforcement; the intrusive and abusive weight of their 'authority'; and the plain-old scenario of
    police brutality are indictative of a nation gone to political hell in a waste-basket. I always did and always will respect the individual.
    I will never ever respect injustice of any kind whether it wears a uniform or not. :mad:

    There are lots of LEOs getting fired, sued, suspended, jailed, and fined for doing dumb things. I don't know where departments find these guys but they need a better recruiting system.

    We've all seen the occasional video of Cops who cross the line but a Gestapo police state? Really?

    Maybee I live in too cushy an area up here in the PNW because I've had my share of traffic stops and never been pulled out of my vehicle, never been harassed, never been given a hard time by any of the LEO's I've crossed paths with despite being a bit of a smart ***. Hell, I even called a vertically challenged OSP officer "bacon bits" to his face without a response.

    Do bad Cops need prosecution? Absolutely, they do, but I'm just not seeing Cops out there trying to screw with people and I'm a guy who travels 40k miles per year for work.

    Maybee I'm wrong, maybee my lifestyle of "bed by 10 pm, no MC club, and no open carry" just keeps me out of the Nazi Oppressors cross hairs...:rolleyes:

    Exactly. Personality evaluations should be a major contributing factor in my opinion.
    Also, cops hassle citizens who carry because they don't know if the person is competent or in the right mind to possess one. But the same goes for LEO. We don't know if they're all in the right mind or properly competent with their firearm. Why does a badge and a uniform make then automatically trustworthy.

    Umm...hold on...I'm going to take a shot at this one...because they are sworn police officers in a Country where its pretty much taken for granted that the Police CAN be trusted. :rolleyes: Yeah, pretty sure that's it.

    Every profession has some bad apples but honestly guys, the only folks I see drawing the attention of LEO's are criminals and THOSE OUT LOOKING for a confrontation.

    That cop was a douche bag. There's a cop in every town and city just like him. Loser in high school who now has power and likes to abuse it to make up for his high school days. He gives good cops who are out there to serve a protect a bad name and is one of those guys that makes people dislike law enforcement

    He should be fired

    Don't ride with idiots.
    Stick to the middle of the pack.
    Don't argue with cops.
    I saw multiple lane changes couldn't tell if a signal was used. Easy driving to endanger charges and we should all know by now you cannot video the police.
    Why the cop couldn't come up with a reason for stopping him is beyond me.

    I got a good lawyer to take care of bad police. The first I pay his salary with retainers; the second I pay his salary with taxes. I don't trust either one.

    Tack I have to say I usually agree with most things you say but this is way off. Go to D.C. and see how many douchebags were sworn in to office and almost all of them don't have a clue what that means. Your analogy to open carry is just plan wrong. According to your statements anyone who exercises his right to carry is looking for a confrontation. Why should it be confrontational to do something that is perfectly legal? Do you ever break the speed limit? If so why? Are you just looking for a confrontation? Should you be disrespected for minor infractions of the law?

    I'm not saying we shouldn't trust them. We should be able to trust them and make co-operative relationships. but we do not personally know them all and humans are not perfect.

    I've learned to not trust cops, lawyers, and judges. Why? This is why. I live in Oklahoma. The law here ain't worth sh!t. Cops take what drugs they can from people, judge puts them in jail for a few days. Cops sale the drugs. Then the criminals are back out on the street in no time. And the cycle goes over and over. In the county I live in some are nice and some are pricks. But they're all in it together. Few years back we had a big drug bust on one guy. Only remember his last name. It was Carson. Ritch people. They basically own the town. Well anyways there was a big drug bust on his land. Feds were everywhere. Few days later he was back home. The news was in the Tulsa World but it sure as hell wasn't in our local newspapers. I have a cousin. Crack head and theif. He gets caught all the time but the next day I'll see him at his grandmas where he lives. I've heard from some crack heads that live around here that have seen cops pull up in their driveway while they were hiding in the woods and watched them walk into their house, take their stash, and leave. Don't really know if it's true or not. One of the worst county's is Sequoia County. Thank god I don't live there. When I was in high school my English teacher had told me that one of her family members had actually seen a cop pull someone over in town late at night, walk up to the drivers window and shoot the driver right in the face, then just drive away. Also went to high school with a girl who's grandpa use to be a sheriff in the same town. She always said he was always crooked as a question mark. Now back in my town again. A few years back my grandpa had went to my aunts house to talk with her. She had got back with her freeloading boyfriend that wasn't worth a dam. Grandpa was pissed. He went to her house. Walked in. Turned around and pulled of his muddy shoes right by the door. And as he turned around to walk into the living room my cousin shot him 17 times from front to back. Guess what, he got away scott free. If you don't believe then so ******* be it. Just my 2 cents.

    One other thing I would like to add is that in the court room the lawyers bicker like nobody's business. And they always talk sh!t about each other. But guess what, on lunch time they're all eating together at a diner laughing and talking away. It's like one big game to them.

    Simplest way to put it. It's just a job to some cops. They don't actually care about doing it well.

    I don't know, seems to me that most departments have more police on payroll than they did a decade or so ago. With the addition of more people the more you will see people that shouldn't be doing that job. Go to a small business and look a tthe people working there. Say they have 25 employees. They will more often than not have a couple that are about useless. Now..Go to a shop that does the same work that have 150 on the payroll. There will be more useless asshats. The problem in this particular instance is these people are supposed to be keeping the people as safe as possible. So they are usually going ot be held to a higher standard by the public.

    I know pretty many that work for police departments around here. Most are pretty good guys, some not so much, and some need to be taken off the payroll. Just like in many aspects of life you will have those that believe their opinions should be much more important than they actually are.

    When it comes to LEO if/when we do things that attract their attention they will most often give you the attention you are looking for. It's a be careful what you wish for deal.

    I kind of have a problem with these videos all over places like YouTube because I question why they are recording in the first place unless they expected to get the attention of LEO to further some kind of agenda or another. Like the open carry guy that just happens to be vid recording walking around with his/her weapon and all of a sudden they get shook down. Don't get me wrong, I don't ever like seeing police overstepping their bounds. And maybe it is a good thing that they are being brought to light to be dealt with within their departments. I just don't think people should be surprised when they end up holding the stinky end of the stick when they are using it to stir the poo.

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." That's your tag line isn't it drumjunkie? So, I'm confused, how do we get rid of the tyrants if we don't stir the poo?

    I can't say the cop handled this the best......but if you start out arguing then it is only going to get worse as it goes on.

    A wise man would pick his battles a little better. These video protesters are just trying to get their 15 seconds of fame.:confused:

    I usually side with the leo about 75% of the time but while the biker could have responded better the leo was a total dick head .
    It may be wrong but the crotch rockets are always on their radar and cross hairs . if you have 2 rockets driving normal by 10 harleys or such driving a bit wreckless , the rockets will get pulled everytime .

    I got pulled this afternoon by a state boy who dont play around , Soon as he walked up i told him I had no endorsement and I found the plate that had expired in 2009 sitting in the shop and had no clue what it went to lmao .
    Gave me a simple warning and sent me on my way with a have a good day and be careful

    But I did have a city boy sitting 5 miles out of his limits '' fact '' running radar and only pulled me as soon and i mean AS SOON as i hit the city limits sign and burned me for 67 in 55 and he was a 100% ******* but it never even went to court and poofed into thin air .
    There are good and bad but its never good to start off with cursing or to start spouting off laws , statutes or the classic I know my rights or I dont have to do '' fill in blank '' or Your not / your cant .

    I agree with the amature camera people about going out looking for an encounter
