This is the first time I got the see the video. I had my gopro on my bike last weekend and my fellow riders told me about this happening.
I live in Dallas and those guys do that shit every year. Last year they blocked a major highway to prevent cars from passing while they did stunts. Then this crap this year. These antics put a target on all of our backs. I'm not going to say I don't break the speed limit but I do it in a fashion and on roads that do not put others at risk.
The video does not show this particular rider doing anything wrong but who knows what was going on prior to the video. Still does not give the cop a right to arrest him for an obstructed plate. Sucks that as a citizen, you are at the mercy of some guy that has a chip on his shoulder and can basically do whatever he pleases. Guys like him give the good cops a bad name.

It will be interesting to see if Five O has any inputs. I definitely know why the Sheriff was pissed off. However, he took it way too far. This is just another reason for me to have great disdain for officers who think they are above the law.

Got to admit the riders who were fecking about in front of the officer don't deserve to have a licence to be on the road! If that is an accepted practice to ride like a complete cock then the laws need tightening.
Officer Dibble has overstepped the mark with his actions. The guy may have "evidence" on his camera but procedures are procedures. They must remember that they are not the Law the uphold the Law.
Rank over ;-)

Man, so many people sucking at being people in this situation. Honestly, wanted to run down the biker blocking the police car and taze the cop abusing his power.
Two people giving their brothas a bad name.

Cops deserve to be called pigs when they act like that.. the guy did nothing wrong, actually he was going very slowly on the highway while many other bikers passed him. On the other hand, I hate the moron "stuntahs" as well, for giving us all a bad name. Once I was in my cage on the highway and a pack of the idiots were in front of me, they tried to block me out of a lane so one of them could do a half mile long wheelie. I wasn't having it and took the lane anyway. Pissed em off quite nicely..
