The Man!

Postby Tarmac » Tue Apr 24, 2012 10:07 am

Riding my F-650ST (aka "Thumper") home from work, huge traffic jam at the highway on-ramp. I start splitting lanes, like any X-motorcycle messenger would, and blow by a cop. I pull over, kill the bike, and he pulls up next to me. He looks me up and down, through the open passenger window of his squad car. It's the 1st 100 degree day of the summer, and I'm in full, all-black, leathers, with a reflective safety vest.

"Yeah, I'd have done the same thing." he says. "Be careful." , and takes off down the break down lane.

It was like I waved my hand and said "You don't need to see my identification."

Great.

It's always encouraging when a LEO uses his wisdom in his enforcement of the law.

Law + Wisdom = Justice

Law - Wisdom <> Justice
Freedom is dangerous. Those in power that steal freedom are more dangerous.
