    But that's not the scenario we're talking about here.

    Maybe you should start a new thread.

    Oh and I don't wear gloves when I ride.

    theicemanmpls, you really are a troll. Your immaturity is mind boggling and a waste of time for people to read, I can see why you are on so many ignore lists.

    Consider this my notice that you are now on mine.
    unfetteredJOHNSON,
    if you are ignoring me, why did you bother to say so? Is this the act of a desperate man?

    I think the point is that the officers actions could have gotten himself shot. Maybe the person on the bike would have been shot too, infact that would be likely due to the uniformed officer being right there behind the bike. But the point is that for his own safety and the safety of all others 1) the officer had no need to draw his weapon, and 2) IF he is going to draw, he damn well ought to have already announced himself as an officer and have a badge hanging from his neck.

    I'm wondering why the guy on the bike even stopped in the first place. I would NEVER stop my vehicle for anyone unless I was certain they were LEO (badge, uniform, flashing lights, etc.).

    A guy with a gun out in the open like that is the last person I would stop for. Plus, how many of us would have seen that gun drawn from the guy coming out of his car without ID'ing himself as a cop, and drawn our own weapons? Likely that one or both of them would be dead or seriously injured at that point.

    Either way, a cop should always have to ID him/herself WITH a badge of some sort for every stop unless it's obvious they are police (cop car, uniform, etc.). This cop put everyone, including himself, in extreme danger in every way.

    ray, if you review the video again, in the last frames there is a police car, with a uniformed policeman. Chances are the perp knew both of the vehicles contained police officers. The cop pulling the pistol was doing it to protect himself. I don't think he had to ID himself, as the red lights of the patrol car had already provided the perp the general idea he was about to meet law enforcement officers.

    Well, this dumbass has been riding for 40 years and never been down, so there ya go. Although I'm sure that won't satisfy you.
