Indeed. Even when the command is dangerous and unlawful.

Generally I find the NYPD's apparent need to humiliate, punish and imperil motorcyclists to be quite repugnant without last week's additional trifecta of insisting I push the bike through a U turn into oncoming traffic and onto an even busier and more dangerous (for everyone involved) roadway.

Their union should not be liking this any more than us.

He asked me to shut the bike off as soon as we made eye contact and I did.

I retained the key until it was demanded. It's hard to hear in the sound track but it's there.

I was not going to re-start the bike until it was clear that I intended to do so to move the motorcycle in a safe and legal fashion.

What annoys me the most about this is, I had just spent over an hour sitting on the bike and chatting with someone less than 150' away from where I was stopped, out in plain view. If they wanted to check me out they could have done so at any time. Instead, they felt it imperative to wait until I rode into their net so they could sneak up on me, delay me, annoy me and subject me to their unsafe bullshit in midtown traffic.

Fuck them.

Well, it looks like you may not be the only one wearing a camera.

This mayor's such a POS. He's got that same double standard with guns if you think about it. It's okay if he's surrounded by them, just so long as absolutely no private citizens have any (including people out of his city)...

On a side note, the last time I rode through Times square was about 8 years ago, and I'll never ride through it again willfully. I was actually riding with a buddy who happens to be a cop (another state) who wanted to see TS at night while visiting. Of course we were pulled over too.


It'd be great if we could just use the old Jedi mind trick; "This is not the drone you're looking for".....

They'll figure out a way to place their arm in the way during filming, and say it's a matter of personal safety.

It's a familiar pattern to those of us who grew up with authoritarian regimes. Their executive investigative arms generally practice the philosophy that there are no innocent people, and that once you have been stopped some infraction must be found.

It helps justify the means and preserve the principle of their infallibility.

From a visible point of view they didn't do much. Checked a couple of obvious lights and the plate/registration and that was it. Unlike the HWY guys who have been known to whip out tire depth gauges. What I find more intriguing was (a) the dumb looks on ther faces while they were looking at my paperwork and (b) the time it took them to do whatever it was they did with it. It should only take a moment to run it all. Probably ended up being a nationwide search for an unpaid $5 parking summons from Bumfuck Iowa in their desperation to find something to nail me for. And then another moment to add me to the NYPD's super top secret database of people like me.

Ever notice how during a demonstration many are wearing raid jackets with no shield #'s?

Coincidence?

He's living in upstate NY, and goes by the name Adrian Schoolcraft.
