That would be cool. Have a news story where they take a sportbike with a lot of "attention" getting mods, run it past an inspector and get his/her word that the bike is not breaking any laws, then cruise down to Kemah with a chase vehicle filming the harassment, all on hidden mic.

That would be cool, except the general public doesn't give a about sport bikes so, sadly, there's not much of an audience for this kind of story and tv stations are all about audience size

It all depends on the angle of the story... If it's about harassing sport bike riders, you're absolutely right. Public doesn't care. But, if the story is about how sport bike riders' demographics typically spend $ on a weekend cruise and how the KPD is essentially "hurting" the Kemah economy by their abuse, THAT gets attention.

FWIW, I work for a major television/film/media corporation and I have spent the last 9 years working directly in television. I know a lot of the anchors/reporters on a "certain" station in Houston.

Uh, I've worked in a certain TV news department in Houston and one of the largest entertainment corporations in the world since 1986. BAM! I'm looking forward to seeing this story make air. Let me know when to expect it

of all the things i read this is the most important; he threatened to throw you in jail because you called him a liar. why would anyone do this? just dont argue cause a ticket doesn't care save it for court. call him sir or ma'am if its a lady. if you choose not to do that then at least be compliant and not call him a liar that just escalates the situation.
if he's wrong/an idiot (an officer being wrong about the law makes them an idiot, since it IS their job and all. You don't see a physician having to go to WEBMD when you go see them to see what this "strep throat" thing really is all about) you might as well try and explain to him why he's wrong so you can save yourself the hassle of going to court.

not all of us have a ton of time to sit around and prove to the court that our law enforcement officer in question needs to be flipping burgers instead of driving around in a company car our tax dollars paid for.
