police harassment

Today I was pulled over for no apparent reason.I was stopped at a red light about to make a left.A cop had the green(to my right at intersection) and made a left passing me.I made the left the next thing I know I have 2 fanwood cops on my ass.I dont even know how he turned that car around so fast.He said he pulled me over because I had my blinker on.I was like whats the ploblem, I turned in that direction.Anyway,once they see that my papers are ok they start saying how nice my bike is. The one officer appoligized for his sargent when he pulled off...

I dont understand these bastards!They act I have 15 or 20 minutes for their hunches.This was probly the worst case.He couldnt even come up with a halfass reason for pulling me over...

2 things come to mind:
1) they wanted to check your bike out and were being tacky
2) someone reported a bike stolen similar to yours or committed a crime on a bike similar to yours

Of course maybe they were being bad

Must obey the sheep dog

Re: police harassment

Of course I wasn't there so it's hard to say exactly how bad it was. If it was truly harassment by your standards then go down to the PD and complain.

On a side note..... This is yet another reason so many guys on sport bikes take off. Although I don't condone it, I sometimes see why they do it.

So if you've done nothing wrong, and are all legal, you'd take the risk of either dying, or having major charges against you for running? Doesn't make sense...

Re: police harassment

I know a lot of the time in ontario they "check for insurance" (B.S.) especially in the colder months or the later fall months...they are still under the impression that you can cancel your insurance and save 6 months premium, like you could before the insurance companys figured it out(in ontario anyways)

I would not worry about it, I normally get pulled 2x a year(early spring and late fall) for license and registration, no tickets(knock on wood) they're "just checking"( )

Re: police harassment

I guess its my fault I knew that fanwood and scotchplains P.D. have a bad rep for that sort of stuff.And I also think that in the begining of the riding season that the cops seem to be quick to jump on a bike because they think youre out riding without insurance...
