According to what I found (Google) it's a $200 fine in Texas, and for some reason classified as a misdemeanor. Don't believe it's an arrestable offense. Not the first time a cop was unaware of the actual law he was trying to enforce.

In the DFW (dallas/ft. worth) metroplex........ MOST NON-moving violations involving vehicles (i.e. talking on phone, obstructed license plate, texting, etc.) are classified as misdemeanors. It's up the to cops discretion whether or not they decided to arrest for said offense (get pulled over for license plate not visible and be real nice and polite, possible just warning, maybe ticket. Get pulled over for talking on phone and be billy-jo-bad-ass and run your mouth and get uppity, cop is within his rights to arrest you for a misdemeanor charge.)

I'm not agreeing with THIS cop. THIS cop is a rag-nugget. But other cops make the decision as the situation permits. Just FYI. (ask me how I know)

I wonder what camera he was running. Glad it didn't stop recording on its own like some tend to do.

I hope dude and his lawyer make an example out of the cop.

I find it sad that the only reason the officer is suspended is because he didn't book the other guy before speeding off to hassle the group of riders. I wonder if anything would have happened if he remembered to book that guy?

Gee, so the thug with a badge gets an unpaid vacation to cancun. Wow! That'll teach the thug.

The sooner we ban police the better. Police are a menace to society. I'd rather deal with the "bad" guys.

So tell me, just exactly what do police do to protect you?

Show up AFTER the fact and take a report?

Oh wait...they can only show up after the fact to take a report when they aren't busy collecting revenue...err, I mean writing tickets. Of course, they can only collect revenue when they aren't too busy sitting at Starbucks slurping coffee and eating donuts.

Has a cop ever actually prevented a crime? Even once?

I'll repeat, I'd rather take my chances with the "bad" guys.

Sad but true. Like I said before I think individual police officers, as human beings, are usually decent. But they signed up for a job that is pretty much just about enriching the state now. Some of them buy into it wholesale and become the guy in this video.

To quote Blade Runner: "If you're not cop, you're little people." That seems to be the mantra of today's police force.

This is really a pointless conversation to have... No police = No law enforcement and no laws = anarchy and no "civilized" society... You wouldn't even have the bike you ride, let alone the "modern" house and all the amenities like great medical care or all the other things that come along with our "fucked up" society that so many now a days like to think we'd all be better off without...

Love the privileges and amenities but hate what allows it all to happen..... But I'm sure you won't say anything bad about our countries military or that we should just do away with them all just like the police will you? Want to deal with all the "bad guys" that are across the pond? Have fun with all that.... Or is it that the local police enforce small laws so the majority stay "civilized" while the military enforce larger things so the country as a whole is allowed to bitch and wine about speeding tickets and other dumb shit like that instead of living in a mud shack with no running water trying to fight for their next meal.....?

Actually i have a lot of respect for our military, but that's a different discussion.

Last time I checked, Japanese engineers and factory workers built my bike. Also last time I checked architects, engineers and contractors built our houses. No cops needed in either case.

So what exactly do cops do again, other than keep donut makers employed?

This time try to focus instead of incoherently rambling nonsensically... if possible.

So do you actually think any of that would have come about without any law enforcement of any kind? Really?

Yes. Exactly why would I need a cop to help me design or build buildings?

The only law enforcement that is truly needed is for people to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms. I PROMISE you the rate of crime in this country would be CONSIDERABLY lower than it is now if people had to think twice before doing something. If everyone carried their own sidearm, and could defend themselves against any crime with any force needed; then other would think twice before attempting something because they would know it could have the potential to get them shot. That right there would be worth it in itself, and make the need for cops (like the corrupt or the shady fuckers we see all the time) non-existant.

If we are so "civilized" as you think having cops makes us Thrifty, then we should be civilized enough to police ourselves and handle our own problems. Cops just make shit worse because they get power (the badge) and then get power hungry and think everyone should do what they say simply cause they have that fucking badge.

I totally agree with Bluuu. Get rid of the fucking cops, especially the corrupt ones. WTF do they protect us from anyway?

Nice edit... but,


It's actually not a different discussion at all... One is local and the other is international... Get rid of the cops like you'd want and how long do you think it would take for the shit to hit the fan? Then guess who would take over the job? Martial law ehh??

And there's nothing incoherent or nonsensical as you tried to bait.... You understand very well what I typed..... You only hate on the local because you won't get the backlash you would if you said the same shit about the international...

Think of the oath the military take as to how and what they protect us from.....

You're trying to miss the point entirely and it seems like you're doing so on purpose.....

And here we go.....

I have no problem with the second amendment at all... in fact I own...

But to say that the riddance of all "police" is asinine.. Just for starters.. I'd look forward to all the "stoopid cagers" threads started when the only speed limit or traffic rule is the .45 one.... lol

You're comment that the police keep us "civilized" is asnine. Police abuse their power worse than any other form a authority ever. Period. They think they are untouchable, and are above the laws that they are sworn to protect. So how do we, as a "civilized" society, protect ourselves from the corrupt when the ones who are corrupt are the ones sworn to protect. If we, as a society, were truly "civilized" we wouldn't need the police because we'd be civil enough to handle our problems/disputes with each other in a "civilized" way. The police don't make us civilized, they make us targets. They abuse their power and try to run rough shod over people's rights whenever they feel they are justified to do so.

(as said by bluuu) What exactly do the police do again??

You're dealing in generalities again.. Lumping a couple as the whole.. There are bad apples on every tree.. No ones arguing that.. This has become a get rid of the tree discussion...

If you haven't been able to tell from your first hand experience and history.. mankind isn't exactly civilized of their own accord...

Ya'll are trying to state that having NO local "police" would be a good thing for our civilization as a whole and I'm saying otherwise...
