dunno, maybe if that bike was stolen they'd have stuck around and looked harder?

it feels like the police "protects" property, not peoples.

If the keys were in the ignition, someone in the WSP should be fired.
I'm sure that the family is already lawyering up.

On the "upside" I'm sure he didn't lay dead there for the full three days like the article says...he was probably moaning in agony for the first 48 hours or so...

Not only that but they had the bike towed, or allowed it to be towed which made him more difficult to find. I imagine there will be a lawsuit and the family will at least be compensated for his suffering.

The WSP clearly needs to implement some type of protocol in cases where crashed motorcycles are found without a rider. Tragedies are bound to happen, but hopefully they will make changes to minimize the chances of this happening again in the future.

Had something similar happen out this way about 14 years ago. State Patrol found a car parked alongside Hwy 3 right near Mason/Benson Rd. Keys in the ignition, guy's wallet and such on the passenger seat. They tagged the car and had it towed 24 hours later later. About 2 days after that a delivery driver stopped on Mason/Benson just near the intersection to go down a dirt road to relieve himself, and found the body. What they think is that the car driver had thought he needed to go..well...number 2, pulled off the road and went down the same dirt road to relieve himself, only to have a heart attack. I lived out that way at the time, it was summer, and we just thought the bad smell was a dead deer.

Yep, troopers didn't seem to think it was odd that the car was unlocked, keys in the ignition, wallet on the seat.

I carry the SPOT

Sad,if he was alive but could not move, the SPOT could have saved him? I carry it on the bikes and even in the car now.

The video posted earlier of the bike launching off the hill side and him crawling to the road, SPOT.

Unless the bike/car was stolen wouldn't that cause concern, to at least do a perimeter search? Also, wouldn't they try and tell the registered vehicle owner they have his car/bike?

maybe an app that detects a crash (hi g-forces plus gps shows it is off-road and then stationary for a while) and then starts asking you questions - "You alright, Bro?" and if you don't answer - wait for it - it doesn't call 911 to report a crash, it calls 911 to report a STOLEN bike and that maybe it was MUSLIMS who stole it. Then the Police are gonna come 'round for sure.

#1 stolen or not, a scene of a crash/accident should be swept for victims and starts of fires (in dry seasons like right now)

#2 sadly in WA no its the responsibility of the tow/ impound lot to contact the owner (and some times they take there sweet ass time at doing it, i didnt get a call that my stolen bike was recovered till about a week after it got impounded)

Ah, the stolen part would be just that the bike was dumped/left behind. Like a joy ride kind of thing, so to not waste too much resources looking around.

I think the WSP should have listed their remedies for preventing that in the future. Saying they are reviewing their procedures and they hope the family has gotten closure is a nothingburger.

Chipotle doesn't food poison somone and say "obviously our hygene wasn't effective and we have room to improve; we will review our procedures and we hope the family can take solace that we are thinking about the problem." They come out with a fuckin' action plan.
