Those are very special "creatures"...

They are action men, be it on this side of the fence or the other.

The fact, that there were cops present, although in civil clothing, does raise several tough questions.

But the claim, that a cop actually took active part in the beating of the SUV driver – that for me sounds so incredible, that I donīt know what to say! I mean, this isnīt happening in some 3rd world country, where crooked cops are a part of everyday life.

Though the distinction is slight, the detective was beating the car, not the driver. The fact any were there at all is disturbing, and there were several.

It must have seemed like a good idea at the time. What was going through their heads?

That's today's story but as more video emerges and is analyzed, stand by for even greater revelations of douche thuggery!

No, it's NYC where crooked cops are a part of life.

Sure you can. Picture it as you and your family under attack, and pick the side that thinks a mob dragging a man out of his car and beating him in front of his wife and infant daughter is wrong.
Must have been too hard.

Exactly. All this does is give a bad name to good motorcyclists, and make the majority of the public that hates us, even more reason. I am sure there will be a ripple effect from all this, and I just hope that myself and my riding buddies ,are lucky enough to not get caught up in it.

all he needed to do is arrest him after the beating and it would have been just another day on the job!!

arrest 'em for what? no worries just think something up, real fast. like being out for a drive with a slashed tire or something

Go figure.
Well little wonder then that these gangs use motorcycles as their mod of operation since the cops have publicly posted a "hands-off" policy. Also explains why these vermin ride bikes without plates, and wear full face helmets or face masks (like Jayzee is shown wearing) so public cameras cannot record them accurately.

Seems time for some creative device, like a Tazer, that immobolizes the bike ignition. Aww hell,....just tazer the dumbshits while they are riding so we can enjoy the videos of them falling all over. They call themselves the "Hollywood Stunters" right? They know how to fall.

1. You're a mechanic and you like to drink beer with your brother and your (17 years old) nephew around a campfire during the week-end

2. You're a high school teacher and you like to drink beer with your minor students around a campfire during the week-end


If you don't see the difference, you're either stupid or acting in bad faith.
One of the better teacherss I faced in my life went to a bar with us for a drink. At a school trip we had a bottle of whine with our teachers. There's nothing wrong about having a good time with your teacher. In fact it's better that way.
