He sued him "multiple times?" Where did you see that information? You keep saying it like it's a bad thing, when in reality his boss was actually in the wrong. He sued him and he won, sure it may not put him in his good graces, but at least he stood up for what he believed in. Wait, isn't that what you are trying to do? Sounds very similar to me, except I bet he didn't take up a collection tray before doing so

My worry is not even that. I worry for HIS sake that he's going to one day pull over some guy who outweighs him by about 100lbs and proceeds to stomp the snot out of him when he attempts to give a ticket...or worse...

I know i know - many of you say we should all just take the ticket and say thank you as we bend over, but the fact is, there are many people who are quite legitimately offended at having some pompous, self-important Eric Cartman wannabe waste our time and money. Real life dictates that one day, he's going to pull over the wrong person - and unleash a storm.

Yes they did. Even to the cops he's giving tickets. And it's funding their system. But need to show as a collective what he's done. He's harrassing people.. When he can flat out say he doesn't like bikers to a biker he has pulled over on the road, there's a conflict of interests. Wich means he is not longer a law enforcement. He's has put some people's personal info out in public websites and thusly endangering a person of the public so thusly a liability to the uniform and the institution. (of course my opinion).

I know of some bikers that orginize to bring a case on him, all that complain should be there (like when I posted about people riding his area so that he'd pull people over.. but he wussed out that day and didn't pull not one biker over and everyone I saw was running loud that day).

Well the example of showing up to work high and drunk probably not a good one, but I'd say if you ever became a liability to your business, see how quick they'd let you go.

Not as hard as people think, but everything has to be documented. Not because it's not easy to get let go of a government job, they just don't want to pay workers comp as that's not in the budget.

They are no long noise violation tickets as he's has wised up and was also told no more noise polution tickets. I forget the city code but it's been a range of things like defective exhaust sistem. Although he doesn't right that, he writest the city code violation. So yes, he's with in his rights, but he's playing the system and working around it to use his badge of authority. He targets all bikes, not just sport or h/d.. and now says he's going after the corvettes. Saw a posting of his where he pretty much professed has him doing it... He's not a saint, but a tyrant. If it were Waco and he said that, the FBI would be burning down some compound. lol

Instead of getting pissy about it here.. if you really want to get involved in it, I'd suggest stopping at the Dam Icehouse on 6 and ask for one of the owners and ask them to get you in touch with the other groups that are setting up against him and become active in it. If not.. take your ticket and go pay it. (which by the way he loves.. been quoted at saying he loves to see how your lawyers rape you just to get you off his ticket)..

He can continue his ways as far as I'm concerned. Karma seems to always come back and bite the people with that sort of mentality...

I'm either having a hard time understanding what you're trying to say or I think you have a lot of misinformation, possibly both.

Bottom line is he is not going anywhere as long as the majority of the citizens of his precinct (beat or whatever you call it) are happy with what he is doing. I have a feeling they support him. ....and I say if the citizens in that area support him then more power to him. No one is the area is going to give a about young (or old as the case may be) punks riding though their neighborhoods.

I ride and and I can't stand that loud going through my neighborhood when I am trying to relax. I ride out of the neighborhood in the early morning in in 3rd or 4th gear just to be as quiet as possible for my neighbors.

Good luck with your fight. I will be avoiding the area.

Thats the whole point - why should your movement be curtailed because you're engaging in a 100% LEGAL act?

No i didnt respond, because i felt others had done an adequate job.

Im sorry you dont see anything wrong with a single officer misusing his authority to apply a statute in a way it was never intended.

There is one difference between what he is doing and what I am doing - mainly that I am not spending taxpayer monies to harass the public.

Just cause the guy sued and won means nothing. They could have appealed but figured it wouldnt be worth the trouble. Just cause one judge found in his favor doesnt mean that a higher court would over turn it, which it just might have.

Some people think that just cause one judge rules that its all over and it is the right decision. The reason that you are allowed to appeal to higher courts is because they are less biased to local situations.

The judge doesnt want any grief over a police on police suit so he just rules in his favor and lets the higher courts deal with it if it goes that far. Happens all the time.

Depends, but riding a legal motorcycle on a public road in a safe manner certainly is legal.

As a condition of ownership, all motorcycle owners should be required to stay in a locked 10x10 feet garage for 30 minutes with their bike revving up and down from idle to full throttle. Of course, their hearing is already shot, and the noise would not bother them. Maybe that is the problem.

Like cigarette smoke, in time the public will be protected from excessive motor cycle noise from the idiot few.
