Cop in Texas messes with a rider for no good reason.
I don't know if this is a repost, but check this out.


To make things even better, his license wasn't obstructed. You can see it here:

And this asshole has had previous complaints like this one:

Here's a fun article about it:

Arrested for an obstructed license plate? that's BS, but the rider was a bit of a dick in the first place. However, that officer needs his badge taken and needs to meet Bubba.

One cool fact: I know exactly where that's at. I stayed in the hotel where dood got pulled over!

Not illegal to be a dick, though personally I prefer to be fake nice and avoid offending officer friendly's power mustache whenever possible.

No, it's not illegal to be a dick. However, it's usually in your best interest to not be one.

Compared to some of the things the officer did, that rider was pretty levelheaded about it, he didn't even physically fight back.

Ok, I see a problem now. Look at the picture of his plate taken with his GoPro:



Then look at a real Texas plate....why do the two not look alike at all? Maybe dood really did have something covering the numbers on his plate.......

To me, it looks like there is a sticker of some sort covering the bottom half of his plate obscuring the numbers. Maybe dood's not so innocent after all..............

Cop's outta line. Sure the under tail license plate is relocated from DOT spec's.
Sure, its illegal too.
But, the threating attitude isnt fair or right. (so say's this crap-house lawyer)
BTW in Washingyon you can get a ticket for the same offence.

I must have watched a different video, I didn't think the motorcyclist was being a "dick" at all, just attempting to stand his ground. The cop was way out of line, as was the dick wagon second cop that arrived on the scene and tried to pull his helmet off.

Why did the other cops run off at 7:46? Almost looks like the one that pulled the helmet off realized he was being recorded on the go pro and bailed out. Where did they go?

There is also dash cam footage of the shenanigans the group of riders were pulling, including riding hte wrong way down the freeway. Yes the cop was out of line, but look up the dash cam footage from that day...douchebaggery abounds from both sides
