    If the cop was on a private sidewalk (we do not know one way or another), then he broke no law. Could you please tell me from this footage, what law the cop broke by parking his bike there?

    If the sidewalk is owned by the convenience store, he could very well have permission, may even be encouraged to park there for reasons I gave in post #4.

    I hate videos like this, because it shows just a small part of a larger picture and it seems most people bring in their personal bias to understand what that larger picture is that we can't see. Here are the facts: A motorcycle policeman has his bike on a sidewalk. Whose sidewalk? You don't know, I don't know. You assumed he is not on official business... maybe he just finished responding to a call at that convenience store. You don't know, I don't know.

    There was a missed opportunity here. This cop imo should have used the parking lot, but here is where I think he messed up. Cops, a lot of them have a bad rap and the bad ones pollute the good. When this child asks him a question he immediately goes on the defensive. A good cop would have assessed the situation a little and instead of being a **** given the kid an explanation. He could have said the store owner lets me park my bike here. End of story. Anything but he is just a ****. The kid asked for his badge number and he refused? WTF Lets not forget he is a public servant paid by us. In this situation be probably was not breaking any laws so use this time to educate a 12 year old kid not further enforce his dislike for police by being an ass. Just my opinion

    This is a pretty huge non-event. Motorcycles park on sidewalks all the time...myself included among them. This is just making a mountain out of a molehill

    Sounds like when this "kid" is older and god forbid gets CCW is the type to strap a AK on his back and carry a video camera waiting for a cop to ask WTF is going on.........I agree that some cops are real *********s but that kid sure as hell is a junior ball buster
    Bad Guys of the world beware the next time you think about jumping on a old guy, because its a fair bet he's to old to fight and probably to fat to run, but can put one in your eye at 50ft with his weak hand

    A couple of things here... we all like cops to cut us a little slack over minor violations and judgement calls. Shouldn't we do the same? And... the much vaunted, "don't they have better things to do than...???". In this case the policeman definitely has better things to do than to dink around with being harassed by a minor over such a non-event as parking his bike on the sidewalk. Is it technically illegal - probably - does it serve any real purpose to query him about what is common procedure with just about any motorcycle cop in most any city - by a 12 year old? Jones and his group is elevating this kid to hero status for being a royal pain in the tail.
