Was the COP right or WRONG

Here is the latest story from my squid friend, I can't belive what the cops can get away with!!!! Yes this guy is giving us all a bad name,, no flaming ME please.. But it sure is funny listen to some of his stories Anyway my friend is going through a spread out neighborhood on its main though road and speeding, he passes a cycle cop that has some one pulled over. The cop yells slow down!! Friend turn as passing and gives the Bird, and contiues on. Stops a few miles away picks up his girlfriend and goes back the same way he came and OH CRAP,, the cop is still sitting there. So the cop hears him coming ( and yes he was speeding) gets in the middle of the road and pulls out his gun and pionts it strait at him, yelling something? Now the friend has the back brakes locked and is hard on the front, girlfreind on the back. Said he slid right by, a few feet to the side of the cop doing about 20mph and the cop tried to reach out and pull them off the bike. My freind regained control and took off. So the officer calls in a attemped assault. (since he was almost hit) (what bullcrap) and the helicopter was put in the air, (our tax dollars hard at work) But luckily he went to a freinds house and stayed there. That is such crap!! Just think about what would have happened to the girl if he would have grabbed them, She sure would'nt have deserved that. And no it was not the taser, it was a gun.(I asked that too) Lesson learned? some cops are SCUM

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

I woulda shot him.

Seriously though, if the story is true, the guy has no respect for the law, and no respect for the safety of others. So, he deserves to be off the streets.

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

it is too bad she was on the bike, yes. It's also too bad she cannot find some one better than this twit. Not to mention that it's also too bad that people are so fricking retarded when they are riding sometimes.

do I think it was too much to have the gun out on the suspect....yah, sorta, but then again the kid already flipped off the cop, and the cop could be ready for a drive by coming his way. So I think it was justified.

what an ass...nothing against you...but I hope your friend gets nailed (busted) before some one gets hurt.

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

Sounds very unbelievable to me, BUT, in the small chance thats real, it is my understanding that a cop can't pull out a gun unless he feels his life is endanger or is threatened, blah blah. I am not cop, so i dont know the laws that well though. I would say the rider was in the wrong by flipping off the cop when he was being nice and letting him ride away with a warning to slow down, but the police officer was taking it to the extreme by pulling a gun and creating a make shift road block. Reaching to pull the rider off, even if all he did was knock him off his balance, would've been detremental because we all know what happens if you lose control of your bike at any fair rate of speed.

YUP!

he passes the cop, insults him by giving the finger even though he was just telling him to slow down ( no ticket), then comes back and most likely was gonna attempt to run away from the cop.

things that stand out from the story.

he was speeding, gave the bird to the cop, he came back speeding obviously not learning his lesson (and endangering a passenger), then almost tried to run the cop over. HMMM LET ME THINK!! i hope they caught him.

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

When you run from the police in a car, they ram you/push you off the road/etc. I don't see any difference if you're on a bike. If you're dumb enough to evade the police, all bets are off.

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

The cop was wrong and should not have tried to grab him...
He could have gotten himself hurt as well. I think a cleanly placed head-shot would have saved everyone future hassles.

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

Your buddy has committed a felony, and deserves to be in jail and his bike forefeited. Do you have the balls to turn him in?
I sure as hell wouldn't want him on a bike any longer.

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

This story sounds like total bullshit...Ask this squid what is the biggest fish he ever caught, and I'll bet he's landed a 50' Great White......

clearly the cop has an ego like most do and just couldnt live with someone giving him the finger .... i would never flip a cop off but its scary that we have cops that dont have anymore self control than to point a loaded weapon at someone for flipping them off

Only reason I beat ND4 to this one is 'cause he's out of town.

What about the passenger?
I guess she deserved to die as well?

Flipping off a cop may be rude, but it isn't a crime.
The officer was in the wrong by pulling out his gun without just cause.

Of course the rider was breaking the law by speeding, however the officer is in the wrong by pulling out and aiming his gun.

Both parties were in the wrong, and both (imo) broke the law.

Riders get a bad reputation because of this guy.
Cops get a bad reputation because of the cop.

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

well put sinister

i still think the cop was the worse of the 2 evils because point a gun and trying to yank someone off a bike is phsyco behavior IMO .... correct thing to do if the biker was speeding was to put his doughnut down and persue him in his crusier

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

Some people I know tell these type stories. If you don't ask any questions nod two or three times without laughing they usually go away. You BS meter must be in need of batteries.

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Re: Was the COP right or WRONG

why flip off a cop? He has done oyu a favour but not pulling you over? Idjet...

Not too sure pulling the gun was such a brilliant idea either, but then, how would the guy know about the radio call and helicopter if he was sitting in a friends house?

You're f%#&king up my Chi...
