His views on the world and humanity are so obscured and biased it makes me sick.
LOL! Keep up the good work Ed(X) Bluewave he'll never change or stop saying Stupid $hit

There was a thread about this incident on Stuntlife a while back, and apparently the cops in this small township were being real about pullin over bikes. The guy shot was a friend of some of the members, and it got real heated over there. Apparently the cops didnt even lift the bike off him and he ended up with 3rd degree burns all over his legs, I will see if I can link the thread, that cop had no justification for shooting him and that video is really sad.

by all means people can act/do whatever they want during a traffic stop. But one needs to understand, you need to be very calm, very cool, and very diliberate with your actions when pulled over.

I personally think the LEO was out of line for being jumpy, but on the other hand, if the M.O. didnt do much (actually nothing) to help with the situation

I have posted about this thing before. I have a routine I follow.

right hand up
pull keys out with left hand,
extend out to the left
slowly place keys on ground
tilt head way WAY back
slowly bring in both arms high to remove helmet
place helmet on the ground. while keeping right hand on handle bar
then place left hand on the handlebars

after that I sit there, I do not look back. I wait, until I am approached, OR I am given instructions on what to do next.

it may not be your fault, that an officer puts lead into you spine, but you dont help yourself if you dont act in a very clear manner, showing that your going to be a cool customer..

do you really want to take the risk of the guy approaching that has a weapon, that your not doing you best to ensure, that you arent a threat?

I you kill the bike and sit with your hands on the bars...what can you possibly do to hurt an officer?

That cop was totally in the wrong. He's be convicted. State will be sued.

yea I even put my hands on my head when pulled over in the truck or car (after turning off the engine)

many times the officer ask "why you put your hands on your head, you a felon?"

I reply

"No, Sir. Just don't like guns pointing at me"

besides, if you still happen to play "lead catcher".. the video will show the proof of you playing along.

I agree the motorcyclist didnt look a threat, but come on, a jumpy situation for the officer to determine whats going on, and you got your hand near your hip.. it gives him ideas that may not be what it looks like

I usuallly shut the bike off, place the keys on the tank and sit on the bike with both hands on the bars. If I have to wait long enough (before he/she is directly behind me) I will take my helmet off. That is after I have pulled well off the road as well. No need to give a LEO any reason to be stressed when he is about to decide whether or not to give me a ticket.

My 0.02 is that this LEO made a mistake and from the partner's testimony, he knew it as well. Might have been a good guy that made a bad decision; could be a DB that did what he wanted for some reason. Who knows?

It is crappy that his partner felt he was at risk being down range of the shot. I think it points to the need for more training in this instance.

First of all, I am the first person to say that if a person runs from the police, I don't care what happens to them (including being shot). Do whatever it takes so the LEO can get back to patrolling my neighborhood.

I'm also one of the first people to stand up and defend law enforcement officers in most cases.............

HOWEVER,

From watching the video, this shooting was NOT justified in any way. No indication that they were running, no movement (to me) that looked like he was drawing a weapon, and his back was to the officer.

Again, just from the evidence I saw, I hope the officer goes to jail for awhile.

And just FYI, Racer X does NOT teach at our school.

Sitting with your hands on the bars, showing that you are not an immediate danger to him is one thing.

Not removing the keys is seperate issue going through the LEO's head. Until the officer sees keys out of ignition , you are a flight risk in his mind.

I eliminate all possibility of having a motorcycle on my , an officer on my back, contorting my arms into painful manuevers, screaming at me
and my face in the frozen grass, with dirt in my mouth.

once when you cross that line of " i made a mistake..my actions were not clear", you learn to not do anything that will put you even remotely close to that mistake again.



yes the officer F'd up. but the motorcyclist did nothing to help himself out of the situation.

I heard the same thing. Pretty messed up that the cop shoots this guy in the back, let's the bike fall on him...and demands that he put his hands up while he's gushing blood, probably in shock, and his leg is melting from the exhaust/engine heat.

I have never owned a cruiser but have had a few friends that have or still do and from what I recall most if not all of their keys are down on the side of their bike. So if they were sitting on the bike they would have to lean down and reach to turn it off which from behind would prob look like they were trying to find something, which I would think would have ended with the same result. I could be wrong but that is what I keep thinking in refrence to taking the key out and the bikes in the vid.

Bad judgement caused this guy's life to be forever changed. I don't know all the circumstances, but I'm sure someone's getting sued.
-
that being said - what's up with these threads?

1) some run from cops, and are not aware the serious situation they create
2) some have elaborate processes for dealing with getting pulled over
3) some know they will get their tickets dismissed by a lawyer

I guess I spend too much time enjoying the riding, and not enough planning for 'inevitable' incidents with the law....?
