The video below has gone viral on YouTube not only for the dangerous motorcycle antics of some 50 bikers in California but their open dismissal of a California Highway Patrol officer who is told to “go away” . . . and he does.
The group of bikers is shown speeding and popping wheelies on highway. The bikers seem to have not a care in the world as they endanger other drivers and act like complete jerks. Then a CHP officer arrives but it is hardly an episode of Chips. The video shows one biker shooing the officer away and then it shows him doing precisely that on Interstate 680 in Milpitas and San Jose earlier this month.
The video was posted by a user “gurustunts” by a biker who not only did not care about the CHP officer but wanted to taunt the cop by posting the video. The officer is shown telling the cretins “No more” and “Knock it off.” The biker filming the scene waves him off and, when the officer complies, he and other bikers are shown pumping the fists in celebration.
The officer pulled over to call for back up but they never caught any of the bikers. Not one of the 50 bikers. The officer may have had little alternative but it is astonishing that a pack of bikers could take over a highway for so long and then escape without an arrest.
What the police do have is this video — as did police in the case of Hamza Ali Ben Ali. The hubris of these bikers may prove their undoing, or at least we can hope.
