Cop couldn't keep up

Sounds like a cop couldn't quite take the high speed lean that a bike can

http://www.king5.com/news/local/Troo...100488169.html

repost? nooo! what is your opinions, the cop shouldn't have been in a high speed chase dealing with bikes to begin with, I think the cop was probably embarrassed about the situation or this is a story made up by the news. I dont see riders doing this.

I'm just wondering, why not find something a tad more current?

Wow, "the news" is going all out on this story. "the news" even made up some names and fabricated court documents:
Quote:
King County Prosecutors charged Kevin Reyes, Christopher Anderson, and Rodney Alexander II each with reckless driving and attempting to elude a police pursuing vehicle.

Court documents showed on August 10, Trooper Brian Salyer pursued three motorcyclists driving recklessly on Interstate 405 southbound and Interstate 5 northbound.
"the news" sits around all day thinking about motorcyclists and ways of making them look bad

Sometimes certain officers get a reputation. Even in Houston certain officers are known to target riders just to give 'm 773H. I'd like to know his history with bikers. Is it possible that the "original" taunting came from him? Does he have a history of harassing riders?
Sometimes it's just the police in a certain area. There are places I try to avoid when I'm on my bike and when I do ride there I actually feel fear of getting pulled over even if I'm 100% legal.
Seriously, I'm not sure how far I'd go to help the total a$$hole that pulled us over last year for NOTHING, lied to us about our insurance, and then at the last minute, after sitting there for 30 minutes, decided we were speeding. Of course if he were injured I'd help, but you know what I mean.
If Salyer didn't have a rep before, for sure, from now on Salyer has a one.

I'm going way out on a limb here, like on the very last leaf, and say the percentage of "bad" bikers is higher than the percentage of "bad" cops.

You're going to fall off that limb and hurt yourself.

Depends on what you mean by "bad".

Generally speaking:
What defines a bad biker?
What defines a bad cop?

Are they even in the same catagory?

I'd be willing to bet those "bad" bikers were NOT out looking to find a cop and give him a hard time. They weren't looking to give "anybody" a hard time. I'm also willing to bet the cop was just overjoyed that the opportunity presented itself to chase a few Baaaaad bikers around and give then for having too much fun. He was so busy fantasizing about writing out all those tickets and feeling powerful he lost track of were he was.

That's the key right there. If you define a motorcyclist as being "bad" just because they speed, then I would agree with Bevo's assumption. If you define bad as asshattery, then I'd venture to say the percentage is about the same.

yep I figure come in all races, religions and professions at about the same percentages, mostly cause they are all people.
