    I saw that. Says the cop can only get 11 years and $15k fine max. if convicted. He should get 25-Life. Period! How many of us would be sitting there the same way. One hand on the bar and one on or near your hip as you turn to look. How many also would be comfortable letting go of a heavy bike and putting your hands in the air. Leason learned.....Both hands on the bars. You never know what azzhole might be pulling you over.

    he wont be on trial just for that im guessing the rider will be suing the cop and the city of the pd. i mean the dude is paralyzed (i think i would rather be dead) ya so what the guy turned around and brought his arm back. that cop was not justified in this shooting. if so the next guy that gets shot reaching for his wallet to get his id that gets shot the leo in that shooting will get off too. these cops are a little too trigger happy if you ask me.

    There is absolutely no justification. His hand was in plain sight...he wasn't making any sudden moves. He simply turned to look back at the officer. I agree with Mad Dog...25-life. I was waiting for a sudden move...or some other stupidity on the rider's part. If the officer already had his gun drawn, there was no reason for him to fire off a round so hastily. Did they say how long he was on the force? My bet is that he is a rookie...or at least still wet behind the ears.

    I hope they do convict his ass...then the family sues him into his next life. Fucking jackass.

    He must've seen one too many Sons of Anarchy episodes and expected the worst, not justified, and like Mad Dog said probably has no idea how much a Harley weighs

    We should all sport "FTP" decals on our bikes. LMAO We'd probably be stopped and tazered once a week.

    LoL I used to have an N.W.A. T-shirt that had "FTP" fully spelled out across the back in 6 inch tall block letters. Wish I still had it for the summer. Haha!
