IMO, ALL cops should attend and graduate from the Official Sheriff Andy Taylor police academy before being set loose on the public.

I do understand completely the yellow fringe on the flag and the "Admirality/Maritime" law that is used in the courts of Equity we have and NOT Common Law courts as it should be.

If you are being facetious, I understand the humor in that most people do not understand where our country took that left turn!!

My first question would be..... why does it take a van full of pigs to write up a guy on a bike? Or were they going somewhere and saw easy money. I mean..... a law being broken. And had to protect the community by writing up the offending biker..

Sometimes I wish a crowd would just beat the crap out of moronic cops.. bring them down a peg.


Well basically, if you ever been to NYC I think it is pretty rare you will see just one officer acting alone. During the period I have lived in NYC I used to see them in pairs. They probably do it to protect the officers ... to cover each others back. Which makes no sense because there is a cop in every corner anyways in NYC and backup is usually less than a minute away anyways.

One popular method I can specifically remember well are when the cops set up these hotspots in specific areas where tourists and unsuspecting people will break the law (unknowingly really). For instance there are bus lanes and only buses can use them of course and the only way to tell that they are bus lanes is of course if it is written on the asphalt. So I remember a time where they just basically sat outside of their pulled over police cars and flagged literally anyone who crossed over to the bus lane. No mercy. They didn't care if you were captain America ...they had tickets rewritten already and all they needed was your info. They did this as fast as possible so they could cite the next poor person.

A cop is paid to take risks just like a fireman but you dont see firemen who have had BAD days leave people to burn or argue for no reason then beat the public for having a bad day.

A Bad day for a cop

1. No donuts
2. No coffee
3. No respect from fellow officers
5. Public back chat

A bad day for cops victim

1. Record you might not deserve (Millions worldwide)
2. Innocent people sent to prison (Millions worldwide)
3. Abuse of power towards woman Eg, rape and indecent assault (Hundreds of cases)
4. Death ( Thousands of cases)
5. Prisons effects on family especially the kids) (Millions of cases)

check google for miscarriages of justice, victims of the police or be blunt in your search eg: cop rapes woman or cops who kill theres tons out there.

i didnt see them arresting him for making a joke, i heard them telling him that the situation was nothing to do with him and to just keep moving, he then said " i wasnt talking to u"! then the police officer got out the car and asked him repeatedly for his ID and he wouldnt do it...

so had he just handed over his id when asked then it wouldnt have escalated into that....

however the amount of police on the scene was rather excessive....

i think if i remember right, they gave about 260 cyclists tickets for running red lights along the park drive in Central Park in one given week. WE ARE NOT V6 ENGINES!!!! what the hell makes the city think that they can enforce traffic laws that were designed to REGULATE CARS, NOT BICYCLES? as a messenger, yes I'm gonna keep riding through red lights cause I'm on a time limit and I'm not a V6 engine, I'm a human being. i slow down when pedestrians are present, of course they got the right of way, but i do not have time for a full stop and there are no cars or buses passing by, do you know how much energy you're burning just to maintain a high enough speed?

if anything, i would love to be in Arizona....


Per the NYDOT Website

Follow the Rules of the Road

Obey traffic regulations: stop at red lights, obey signs, observe speed limits, and follow lane markings.* Cyclists in New York State have the same rights and responsibilities as motorized vehicle operators.
Never ride against traffic.* Drivers do not expect bicyclists riding on the wrong side of the street. Even in marked bike lanes, ride in the direction of traffic.
Use hand signals. Signal in advance of turns.*
Never wear headphones while cycling. *

I used to live in NY and been hit by bike messengers more than once because they do not follow the rules, you have to stop at the red like every one else.

The OP video was about a man who did not break the laws, you in your own admission did so and was caught. Way different thing.

I and currently live in Phoenix, if you ride the way you do in NYC here you will not last long, the drivers here are some of the worst in the nation.

but i am not a V6 engine. i cannot afford to come to full stops. you have a package that needs to move 40 blocks in 15 mins, not utilizing the versatility of the bicycle wont do you any good.

furthermore, pedestrians are the ones who blindly throw themselves into danger. just because no car is coming does not render me invisible and you can automatically cross into my path when i CLEARLY have the green light. thats how all pedestrians behave when they cross the street: it can be as bright as day and they do not see nor hear me shouting at them until im forced to deviate, possible in front of another car, just to get around them. we need to be in the street as well, and just because we're skinny doesnt mean we're invisible. its like i need to use the cars to escort me across intersections. hell, heres a video i made after the winter mess last year



you can see how much little respect we cyclist get at 12:10, and imma make alot more videos soon, dont you worry. and what pisses me off even further is what gives them the right to walk in the bike lane made for bikes? you are not riding a bike. the sidewalk is over there. get the hell out the bike lane.

Rhetorical Question: What if you were just you and asked him to show his ID?

Oh, you wouldn't do a damn thing about it and would be rude to ask him in the first place. So first look up the definition of hypocrite. Then do me a favor... keep at least 300 miles away from me because I don't like your Naziism, and because I don't want your attitude to spread like cancer to my neighborhood. If you ever learn common decency you are welcome back.

Here is a good link for this guy to file a complaint against the officers involved...

Well, you sound reasonable when you say he should have just handed over his ID, but then that brings us to the whole point of authorities demanding to see our papers(ID) any old time.That really does smack of Nazi Germany and we all know it. Of course if the guy walked by and said nothing and cops came running after him to show ID they know they cannot do that, but the cops are also pushing this line. I would bet they are told by higher ups to ask for ID any time. What if that guy was just walking from the corner store to get milk and didn't have an ID on him? Would they have arrested him for not showing ID?
The real funny part of this is the biker guy just sat respectfully on his bike watching the whole thing, and was ready to get written up anyway. One is compliant and the other isn't.

Very typical of individuals who may have Megalomania. Unfortunately they always seem to have a position of power / authority anyway. No matter how minor that position really is.

Once again proves what I've said for decades: There has NEVER been a situation I was involved that wasn't somehow made worse by the presence of a cop.
We could lay off half all the cops in America and would never know the difference other than how much more peaceful things become.

See, when you get "arrested" and they try and book you and they ask you your name, you state, in no uncertain terms, "if you do not know my name, how can you arrest me?" Stick to this line no matter if you think they will beat the crap out of you, eventually they will let you go as they can not hold you without your consent. Yes, by talking to them you consent by assent, BUT, they still do not have the authority because you talked to them under threat and duress, threat of arrest and detainment and duress for that very threat, so it is all null and void in a "Court of Law".

You do not have to show any ID. We are humans and do not need to have identification, that is for corporate fictions only. All law is based on Commerce, an ID is your Corporate Identification, so they can cite you for breaking or violating the corporate statutes.

I know where you are going with this...GreatScot

agreed, and the non-compliant one is the one who was arrested.

i agree that it smacks of nazism, but the police are doing thier jobs, the man was rude to the officer and was getting involved when it was none of his business and the officer warned him from the car to keep moving..had he been compliant at THAT point instead of mouthing off to the police then the officer wouldnt have got out the car and asked for his ID...

as a society we need to know that there are consequences for our actions, im not saying that the officers were right in my opinion it was a bit "overkill" but if everyone walked around talking to police officers like that then there would be no point in us having them....we may as well have joe bloggs off the street in a badge....

wether we like it or not they are authority figures and are such for a reason,

Thats right, blame the victim. If someone gets raped, next time they'll know better than to dress in a short skirt or wear makeup on their face. If you don't self-mutilate your face, you should know better than to walk outside after 6PM and deserve the rapes you've got coming. Right?

In point of fact he did not "mess with NY cops"... he was joking about them. Big difference. And if he didn't do that we wouldn't realizing what pond scum they are, so I'm glad he heroically shed some light on the situation. Most big-city cops are like that... authoritarian sadistic monsters.
