    Of course it's easy to play desktop vigilante ... I suppose that my reaction would be different if it actually happened and I were just merely inconvenienced by this type of thing going on.

    Sometimes the most unassuming people when placed in situations can be the most dangerous, I learned that as a kid a few times when both my parents were placed in situations where they had to protect their children. Once with my mom and twice with my father, even calm and level headed people can react in ways you never expect.

    Yeah, but my sense of "justice must be served" will quickly be balanced against my level of "need to not have attention drawn to myself" ... It's easier to get work done when you're in the shadows.

    So it looks like there were at least 5 off duty cops and and few correctional officers in that group of bikers:grrrrrr:

    One is supposedly an undercover cop so based on what he was undercover for (was he with people he was undercover for etc) he might get a pass, but all the others, definately not.

    I just read an article that said one of the members of the biker group was an undercover cop and there were several off-duty cops in the group as well.
  6. This should totally surprise me, but unfortunately it doesn't.

    If it were me I'd have driven the wheels off that range to the closest station.

    He did. Not any rubber left front right. Right rear shredded. Problem he ran into was getting off the freeway but who knows how far he could have kept going

    I just read an article about the undercover officer, even if he gets his superiors to believe that wasnt him on video he still has issues that he didnt report the incident for three days, since he admitted being there, which evidently still leaves him in trouble.
    Who you gonna believe? Me? Or your lieing eyes?
    I guess the New York District Att. is taking this very serious.

    Well if any off-duty(not undercover) officers were involved they should be charged because I know most dont have a problem flashing their badges at any other time for their own convenience.

    Wow. It just keeps piling on. I've been in groups of 4 wheelers going camping before and I get the feeling of having a group ... but we're law abiding citizens. These bikers are stopping traffic so they can do stunts.

    They don't care about law ... until they get caught then they get a high profile lawyer to demand their rights.

    I'd of called 911 and hope the police can make to me before these parasites catch up.

    In an unrelated incident, I had to call 911 on Monday morning the call didn't go through. I called with my wife's phone ... Didn't go through. On both phones I called about 35 times and they sometimes got through for about 3 or 4 seconds and sometimes nothing. I ran to my neighbors house and same thing, they couldn't get through either ... except one time to give the address.

    Long story short ... You can maybe count on the emergency services 99% of the time, but it doesn't hurt to have a plan of action for yourself and your family either.
  15. "one of at least two off-duty undercover officers who were riding with fellow bikers that day..." So if they were off duty wouldn't that mean they were riding on their own time and not be investigating the motorcycle club? Maybe I'm reading into that statement wrong.

    Man, I don't even know what to say except this is really terrible and I hope they continue to get to the bottom of all this. These are the people the SUV driver is supposed to depend on to keep him safe.

    I hate that I'm associated with this.

    Yep some will do that and some will understand that this was a group of thugs.

    Of course, before the 9/11 attacks, who would have tried to stop a hijacking of an airliner? Very few. If the same thing were to happen again, everyone on board would jump in to stop it.

    Before this video ... who would have dared to confront and/or try to video the events for evidence? Probably not all that many, but now we know that nothing less than the safety of our streets and the freedom from being assaulted are at stake. Maybe it's a game changer.

    Haven't heard much more about it. This is probably when details slow down until more charges and investigations are done
