Wow.

NYPD DESTROYS ILLEGAL MOTORBIKES: Last month, the New York Police Department said it planned on cracking down on the prevalence of illegal motorcycles and dirt bikes in the city by televising the destruction of them. The NYPD followed through on this threat on May 17, when two
bulldozers crushed a number of the illegal bikes, as the NYPD broadcast it live on Facebook. Police commissioner Bill Bratton waved a checkered flag to signal to the drivers when to start the destruction.

Government at its finest hour - destroying the personal property of its citizens. I dont know what was "illegal" about them. Assuming that the city was formally awarded title to the bikes (I doubt it) they should have been sold to generate revenue for the city.

I'm confused. What makes a dirtbike "illegal" and why can't they sell them. Is he saying there is no place in NYC to ride one so therefore illegal. So sell them somewhere else.

They should bury them, then dig them up and run them over again.

The city probably doesn't want to open itself up to any liability from a sale cause 's in NY like to sue

I think this is justified as the most wasteful thing I've seen today. Or this week. Probably longer.

If the bikes aren't stolen, they should have never been seized. Have our lawmakers and judges forgotten about the Constitution?

The Constitution give you the right to keep the that you used to conduct illegal activity?
Ride the streets without a license or insurance and see if your bike can't be seized
