The irony in this cyclist's recent youtube video.

His YouTube channel, where he talks about the incident. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFr...10W819w/videos

Apparently, the King County Sheriff has zero tolerance for officers who abuse their power.. (cough) After 4 months of paid administrative leave (vacation) he "might" face a 10 day suspension (paid/unpaid? we dont know).

But another officer faces federal charges for pulling her gun out..

while another remains on paid leave after pleading guilty to groping co-workers...

You ride super Moto it looks like, so easier for some than others r1 is barley out of first gear and pretty much a 2.5 second roll on gets you to 100

So you're saying you're unable to control your motorcycle?

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.
My ZX14R could get to 100 pretty quickly... Particularly if I was already rolling.

Didnít say that, said easier for some than others, a Harley or supermoto can pretty much jam a few gears and ring it out to get 100, new day super bikes are past 100 real real fast a lot of times before you expect it to be and I like to have fun sometimes for more than 4 seconds I feel I ride very responsibly and only try and risk myself so sue me, right me a ticket or catch me but itís not a capitol crime

Lame. Seems like a "firable" offense to the average person. I wish citizen review boards had more power around here.

They have as much power as we give them at every election. The first politician who will make it a campaign issue gets my vote, party be damned.
