Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

I've never thought too highly of laws that allow seizures of property based on an accusation alone. And now its not just those pesky drug dealers losing their property. Is slumbering middle America about to wake up and smell their civil rights swirling down the toilet? Probably not as most of us do ride like sensible people and rarely run from the police.

Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

Once again, I must have worked for the only ethical police department in the country, since my time as a police officer completely contradicts most of the comments made on this topic. Unfortunately, some cops with bad attitudes give the rest of the officers a bad rep.

I don't doubt that most cops are decent and ethical, the vast majority of the ones I've come into contact with be it as neighbors or on the job have been entirely reasonable people. However all it takes is one or two with an attitude and your day is ruined

Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

That's funny. I've been pulled over two times. Both times, "I can't believe you stopped. Thank you." And then, "Please sign the back of your $400 ticket. Have a nice day." I never shoot my mouth of, I wear ATGATT, and ride very safely (i.e., I don't speed around other traffic).

Advice for the 20somethings from someone older

Here's my plan. (Disclaimer: I'm not an attorney, and I don't play one on TV.)

Step 1: Find a local criminal attorney, for future reference. Pay a small retainer if required, especially if said attorney is known to lunch regularly with local govt. representatives and/or judges. Point out that you have no intention to break any laws if you like; you'll likely be told not to include your attorney in any such planning in any case. (I need to update this relationship, myself, as I doubt the guy who handled my divorce still remembers me.)

Step 2: The phrase is "I need to speak to my attorney, and I do not consent to any search." Practice it, don't just memorize it. Aside from identifying yourself and being pleasant, it's all you'll say of consequence. Remember to accept the ticket in whatever manner is indicated, as it's a crime to refuse to sign in some places.

Step 3: Consider earning a JD yourself, just so you can keep up with what thery're trying to do to you...

I would LOVE to post on this, but i have some cyber stalker on this site who crys when I talk about stunting and cops and such...

bet that will upset him...
look at these

These are the @ssholes who cause more and more motorcycle legislation. These people are the REASON for tiered licenses in Europe, they're the reason for helmet laws and laws like "haha I can take your bike!" I honestly wish the coppers would find these guys and follow THEM around. They could get plenty of tickets given out and maybe these arses would loose their licenses.

Either that or one of them is going to die from wearing this wonderful gear! That's a +4 baseball cap of protection! "Nothing can hurt me now!"

Now, a serious question, out of 11 posts you have started two threads advertising these idiots. Doesn't that constitute spamming? or can i get on here and advertise the **** out of my photography business too?

bet that will upset him...
And isn't that argumentative flame bait? Just trying to pick a fight with people eh?

He's advertising these idiots because he is associated with the site. His link has been removed.

Thanks Zod!

What will Zod do about "Stuntaz" on the highway? does he have any plans to prevent goverment forfeit of bikes? Is there anyone that Zod would like killed?

(just a little to drink ;-))
Obviously a lot to drink because you were talking to Non, not Zod, squishy terran.

Under Zod's rule stuntaz will find new employment as shock troops for the invasion of Planet XwsZTTL%-7, home of the arachnid giants.

I am Non, not Zod. I will be the Vice President of Planet Houston when we crush the opposing parties in the upcoming presidential election!

Stuntaz do not concern us as their squishy forms tend to end up smeared across large stretches of highways leaving nothing but flip-flops and baseball caps to be recycled.

In regards to government forfeiture of bikes, the Zod/Non platform has learned many things from previous squishy Terran leaders. Thus, Zod/Non will promise anything to everyone to ensure votes which will lead to our victory. No government forfeiture of bikes equals a Newagetwotone vote!

Another Terran converts to the Zod/Non Campaign! Hail Zod!

Ah, Planet XwsZTTL%-7, Non's in-laws reside there. It is a hot and damp planet with hideous bugs and violent, stormy weather. Most life forms go there to die.

It is much like the Florida, but nicer.

Oh great General Zod, excuse me for my slightly drunken mishap. Thank you for your new employment of the stuntaz, it will suit them well!

General Zod, Cthulhu would like to join your cause if you will so have him. He promises much death and destruction through slow terrible insanity and with his power to travel through space may oversee your armies all over the universe.
