It was a bike cop, right?

Not saying he was at fault, it's kinda hard to see, but he was reckless, I've seen bike cops do like this several times, one time I almost creamed one when he went the wrong way in a two lane road in Houston.

He was struck??

It looked the other way around!...

I had a post a while back where a moto cop got hit while in a funeral escort... but I would also like to add that the cops were being a little wreckless...

That was crazy though, it didn't seem like he was going THAT fast for that.

He was escorting a funeral procession my guess is he had just finished stopping traffic at an intersection an was headed back to the front of the pack to block the next one. From the funeral processions i have been in and stuck behind there are usually 2 motorcycle cops one at the lead that block a busy intersection and a second one that blocks the next busy intersection. The SUV got impatient with the procession and decided to cut between cars when they should have just sat there and waited like a decent human.

They do that to get to the front quickly to stop traffic driving perpendicular to the procession, with that said, I don't think the cager was at fault, if he can cross the street safely, I would do it, if the moto cop was at the intersection to stop traffic, then stop.

also as far as i know it is illegal to interfere with a funeral procession such as cutting between two vehicles.

Maybe yes... but the bike saw it and just kept going.... it almost seems like it was target fixation... the moto was on the left lane, by that time the suv had cleared that, if he woulda stayed there or braked, this woulda been avoided. He went against the SUV, and he lost or did he win?
He did flip the Focker.

It's not legal to cut across/through a funeral procession.

I have always been a strong proponent of the banning of these escorted funeral processions. Its complete horse . I have almost took out a bike cop when I was changing lanes on the access road, he changed lanes at the same time but I couldnt see him cause he was coming up in the same lane but there was a car behind me. Well, he actually went on the grass and saved it.

He got to the ramp to clear traffic for the procession and when I passed he gave me one of those "sorry, my bad" waves.

These cops are off duty when they are doing this and are pretty much forced to ride recklessly by the nature of the job.

Buddy of mine did this for a month and he quit, he said it was just way too dangerous and didnt see how anyone would want to do it.

Hmm, should we ban large bike rides too? You know, Toy Runs and the like?

Even that I'm not Leo fan, when they are escorting they have to push a little bit to do their job. I didn't see it as reckless as he was probably coming from the back of the back to make it to the next intersection to block it off. The recklessness was the SUV trying to cut a funeral.

I'm going to play devil's advocate.

Every time you see a hearse that has no cars for hundreds of yards behind it do you automatically stop thinking there is a funeral procession behind it? I have seen hearses driving without a procession many of times. With that being said, I'm glad they didn't ticket her for more. I don't think the cop was being wreckless as I feel keeping up with processions has to be tough. Either way, the car doesn't anger me. The hears was WAY ahead of the rest of the line.

What I do think is funny is how the news commentator said "Bike was struck by an SUV"

like stated above the hearse was way ahead maybe since the road wasn't blocked he didn't think it was a funeral? and the cop got cause she cut through...i see it as the cops fault he could have just chilled out let her go through and pull her over....the SUV was pretty much all the way across the street... the cop sped up and swerved at it.... i say cops fault
