The trick is to just show the cops you won't take any by running from them every time. That way eventually they just will leave sport bikers alone, and will never hassle you again.

Regarding spike strips and PIT, there would be some kind of backlash after the first couple of fatalities. Most cops would probably refuse to use it, and the ones that do would probably end up abusing it.. (Tazers -> "don't taze me bro!")


The other thing is, if a rider is going fast enough, there's a chance they don't realize that they're being chased. So they don't know they're "running" and continue with their spirited ride. But the cop could call in spike strips 2 miles down the road? Talk about buzz kill. lol

I don't think this has anything to do with bikers speeding or evading the popo. It's an intentional jab by a feminist media against the male side of the species.

How in the 773H do they know it was a guy? They just FARGIN ASSUME IT'S A GUY. They say "this guy" because most people automatically think only guys will jump on a bike and act the fool so the feminist media takes full advantage of it and prods the thought process by pretending they already know it was a guy. They're guy haters and they want all guys off bikes. Did you see the bish smile every time they said the word "guy"? They never once even said "this person". No, it's always a GUY that's doing something bad!!!! Ever notice that? Did ya? Personally I think that there should be different speed limits for the two genders. Feminine riders (or those in a transgender quasi human totally confused mind I-don't-know-what-to-do-with-my- state) should be required to ride 10 under the posted speed and never allowed on a track (just kidding about the track thing. only trying to light some fires. ).

I'll bet my next bike it was a woman!!!

Not advocating the persons actions in any way (speed, get spotted, get your ticket), but I like how the media said that the LEOs' stopped the chase because THE RIDER was making it too dangerous. What, too dangerous for a bunch of squad cars to be zipping in and out of traffic at speeds of 100+mph? Naahhhhhh, really?!

Still, the person shouldn't have run, hope they catch him and find out the bike is stolen or he has warrants for something serious enough to begin the chase in the first place.

You realize the media reports what police tell them, right?

Hmmm, I didn't see "a bunch of squad cars to be zipping in and out of traffic at speeds of 100+mph"

Hmm I wonder what those noise makers and colored flashing lights on the police cars & ambulances are for?

I didn't see the video, filtered at work. Are you saying the police lied to the media? Not sure what that even has to do with the fact that usually, an officer has to catch up to someone or at least have a visual to be involved in a "chase". Was there no chase?

When they flash you like that, they aren't being friendly.

You said "squad cars... zipping in and out of traffic", to me that sounds like changing lanes recklessly. There's no evidence of that

What do you not understand?

Probably the part where you input an ellipsis where the crucial part of the sentence lies.

Did not know as I did not see the vid, but if the motorcycle was zipping in and out of traffic as this is what I read, would'nt the officers be in the same environment? Again I am missing details of the video and can only speculate what I have read from the link and on here. Either way, it was a dumb move on the rider and it is good that no inoccent bystanders where injured in a chase that was abandoned because it was "getting too dangerous".

We should hold our cops to the same levels of suppression as they do us. If we see them speeding without lights, running red lights, breaking the law, etc. We then can spike strip them, run them off of the road, citizens arrest, shoot them, etc...
