Re: Traffic Cop

Uh, what just happened there? Appears the cop pulled out facing in the wrong direction had any of the bikes wanted to run I suppose he had backup downstream though.

Bikes are on one wheel, cop pulls out and blocks the road.

Re: Traffic Cop

It's a repost, for one, and I'm almost certain that it was shot either in the Czech Republic, or Poland.

Re: Traffic Cop

Why would fellow riders be cheering? Looks staged. You'd think the people would be screaming for them to stop.

It just doesn't make sense.

That was the best race I have ever seeen....

I don't think they're cheering. The noise is made after the impact. Do you hear the screech off-camera, a moment before the standup guy drops the front? Sounds to me like the cop peeled out just to get in the way and not give the rider much (enough) time to react. I could be wrong, of course, but either way, the punishment exceeded the crime in this case, IMHO.

I'd have to agree. Ghastly video.

FWIW, in the US that sort of response from a peace officer could (and probably would) be construed as deadly force. The point is, in the subsequent inquiry (in Nebraska's case, a grand jury), he'd have to justify what he did in the same way as if he'd have pulled his sidearm and fired on the biker.

At the very least it's a training issue. More likely, it's a judgment one, and unfortunately you cannot teach common sense.

Re: Traffic Cop

Didn't something similar happen down near Deal's Gap? I thought I read about it on one of the sites. The officer deliberately hit and killed a motorcyclist and then tried to erase the video recording from his squad.

According to Conq's new rule, you just insulted me Moto.

Re: Traffic Cop

If the asshole didn't have his front wheel pointed to the sky, he would have seen the cop in plenty of time to stop.
