Don't shoot, I was just speeding!

This seems a little excessive?! Some cops are a little out of control these days.

I wonder what happened before this? Going over 100 mph?

Is this a case of play stupid games, win stupid prizes?

Officer is already on leave, head of the Sheriff's department came out very bluntly against it to the press

Sheriff: Detective placed on leave after video shows him holding gun on motorcyclist | Q13 FOX News

it doesn't matter how the rider was riding previously, there is no acceptable reason for a stop to be conducted in this fashion unless the rider himself was armed and brandishing

being stupid doesn't mean you get a gun drawn on you without a cop announcing himself or showing a badge. Unless they directly fear for their own safety they are not to pull their weapon in traffic, period.

At the end of the video he states that he did not receive a ticket.

Cop is lucky someone didnt shoot him (Plain clothes, unmarked car, red and blue lights not visible in every direction...)

These were my thoughts as well.

Also, for the "100mph and weaving in and out of traffic"..I dunno. It takes a lot of track to get to 100mph and everyone on this forum should know that motorbikes "appear" to the eye to be going faster than they really are.

BTW, my wife showed me this vid last night and she was more pissed that I really was at the time. I think more from fear that the dude on the bike could have been me.

Walking up behind motorcyclists in traffic with drawn weapons without identifying yourself is a good way to elicit a fight or flight response. Another example of police action with impunity because they know they can get away with it.

just a note: not all cops are bad all the time.
the only problem is that it's so god damn hard to tell.

this is what makes us good: it's SO EASY to do the right thing.

It's funny to note that his bizarre threats to knock the bike over in the street don't merit a mention; that's how off the reservation this cop was was. I don't blame our guy for believing he might get shot right then and there. I wouldn't have even challenged him on the stop because I would have been thinking: "I make this loon feel uncomfortable and he might decide it'll be better if I'm not around to contest his side of the story."

Here's somebody's capture of a KIRO 7 report, who take credit for bringing the video to the Sheriff.



Edit: on watching the last part, the Sheriff looks really angry that this shit happened to his department. Watch his jaw and lip when he stops talking for a second when describing how he's going to use the video as a teaching tool. The guy is majorly pissed.

This member of the King County Law Enforcement Squad is out of control and threat to civil society. Remove this man from his duties before a dead body is involved. My opinion!

Not much more than road rage combined with a feeling of superiority. Good thing the cop lost his job and he didn't kill anybody. I guess it would be interesting to see what lead up to the cops reaction. The few seconds on the video seem like pretty normal R1 riding to me...

It's interesting that the video fades in, rather than cuts in sharply the way it would if he had just powered on the camera, meaning he's edited that end of it. He's decelerating and the speedo is just dropping through 44mph as the video comes up.

This is just an aside observation, so don't anybody yell at me: I'm not defending crazy-ass off-duty Deputy Douchebag for a single second and I'm not going to kid anyone about how closely I observe speed limits myself, mmkay? But I'd lay good odds our guy was doing over 45 and cut the video to make sure that didn't show.

He wasnt fired, hes on paid vacation... He'll probably kill someone eventually and still keep his job.

Nothing dumber than filming yourself breaking the law and then putting it on youtube. He did admit that he was probably doing 10-15 over the limit.

I might add, if he is a detective, his car IS NOT equipped with calibrated speed measurement equipment, and he would have had to pace motorcycle guy to get a not-at-all accurate speed measurement, which would have dubious validity in court. This won't go well for the cop.
