google3it, your post is VERY disturbing and i must point out, a bit ignorant. in my opinion, that brings you down to their level in terms of mental attitude. i say this not to attack you, but to get you to think about what you said and your attitude.
regardless of his conduct on a bike, he is STILL someone's son, someone's cousin, someone's best friend, someone's brother or sister, etc. if he was to die due to his own stupidity, then good riddance while i would feel his family's heartfelt pain. but to say you'd kill someone over something as stupid and trivial as that... makes you look like an ass.
no, i dont agree with how he was riding, and no, i dont agree with riders of the same mindset or whatever, BUT i wouldnt say i'd kill them or run them over or whatever. hell, what if some dude in a cager didnt like how you passed him for whatever reason and then ran you over because of how he felt?
my point is, if someone's being stupid beyond using logic with them to get them to stop, distance yourself and wait for them to bite the bullet. all the while advocate for safety, "real" riders, proper conduct, etc.
I understand your position. If you re-read my post, I stated I would not put my family in danger (ie, swerve violently to miss him) if such an idiot rider did to me what he did to that cop. I never said I would go out of my way to 'take out' that guy. Just that I would not put the safety of my family above his idiotic preservation.
He has his right to be stupid. We all do. But the instant he crosses that line, my rights step in to preserve myself and family. If I was the one in the car and he was antagonizing, threatening me, trying to force me off the road, I would take defensive action, no questions asked. I wouldn't hesitate at all to call the cops if I saw some dangerous riding on his part as well, but I'm surely not going to play the cop.
Sorry if my post seemed aggravated (I was) as I had just come off of a ride where a cager purposely cut me off to get out of a turn lane, rather than brake and wait for me to pass. No doubt, he's probably just annoyed with motorcyclists, but it's guys like Demon Dogz that give guys like ME a bad name and put me in danger because of it.
Just like people shouldn't (but do) classify Islam as a terrorist religion (it's not, just has its extremists), motorcycling has the same taboos, especially when dealing with sport or superbikes. But nothing will change if we don't speak up. Islam has to do the same to deal with that part or sect of their religion, we have to do the same with these 'extreme' individuals.
If I never got angry with him, never talked about it, never took action to prevent his (or others) disastrous choices, then some day MY FAMILY or MYSELF will pay for the actions of his choices; or even someone else's choices because they have just categorized me by my ride. Just backing off and 'watching' doesn't really do a lot of good. There has to be some action, even if it's just tagging his plate and calling it in.
Sorry, but I won't stand by and let that happen.
Just to point out as well, I'm not angered by your response. I love me some good, thought-out dialog. But just to point out, swerving in front of a COP, causing him to roll his car at triple digit speeds, is not something I would call "stupid and trivial as that..." as you said. This was not some Squid just popping wheelies. He assaulted a cop.
They probably have good reason to try him for assault & battery and maybe even attempted manslaughter or assaulting and officer. Maybe that happens a lot where you live (I really hope not), but here, you try that, and you will get it handed to you.
