I'd replace an entire police squad

I'd replace an entire police squad...

With just this one kid. There would be a 2000% increase in integrity.

just another cop that thinks he's above everyone else.

Major props to this kid though. That videos enough to file a complaint even if he couldn't get his badge number, which if asked he is obligated to do so.

I wonder if cops get some sort of training from their unions about not telling their badge numbers. When I was his age I was talking with the local sheriff's all the time at a nearby county park. They didn't like me riding my bike by myself and would always ask me my name and where I lived. I'd ask for their name and badge number after and they always ablidged and gave it to me.

Somewhere down the line though they turned into a holes.

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

Well

I own and ride a motorcycle. You have to understand that people rides bike to avoid the traffic. Bike is different from a car. If you part in the sun on a 100 degree day, your tank will be burning and you can't ride it when come back. Probably cover the tank and seat for like 5min then ride. With that said, I think the cop should had play it cool. Give the boy his badge number then explain why he parks it there. Also motorcyclers, will park on the sidewalk just to save the lot for cars? How many times have you drove up to a spot thinking its open and there it is a motorcycle hiding parking there. We think like that, so we just park it where most people don't park. Sometimes you'll see 2-4 motorcycle park on a single parking space, we really try to save space for others. Once a manager-ish at work asked me why I park my bike on the building sidewalk. Well it's raining? He says, we'll you don't have a cover for it? I didnt say much back but in my head i was thinking well dude I come straight from school, you expect me carry a cover everyday? You know it is scary seeing DailyPaul people thinking like this...anyway I thought we were for less government...I hate cops a lot but I think this is pushing it especially when a kid is doing it.

I guess you are the same guy that doesn't think

motorcycles have to use traffic lanes like all the cars. Weaving in and out, riding in the breakdown lane etc etc.

I see it every day.

News flash - you dont get parking privelage and you dont get traffic privelage(at least not in CT you don't). The cop is wrong. You dont park on sidewalks and block pedestrian traffic.

I dont get why some people think the rules don't apply to them.
I really dont get people who justify breaking the rules for MY benefit. Gee - thanks for looking out.

And the manger is right - it raining does not give you special privelage.
As for people on the DP thinking like this. Traffic rules are meant for safety, rules against parking on sidewalks are for safety and the benefit of those who are handicapped. Basic tenant of being a libertarian is NOT violating the rights of others and NOT putting yourself in a privelaged class.

Obeyeing basic laws in part of a civilized society - I am a libertarian not an anarchist.

he's not a manager

he's not a manager, wants to be one. He lost a lot of contracts for the company, I found out recently. Anyway, as far as I know it's the cars that wants to run the motorcycles over. When I ride, I ride nicely, until maybe idiots like you who wants to run me over, then i'm all well no point in stay close to cars that don't look for motorcycle. FYI that's how motorcylers die, when cars hit them. "Oh I didn't see him." Give me a ticket, I rather live!

Good call

After reading your post I tend to agree. The police officer should have played it a little more cool but I could easily see it being innocent as you describe.

How about

How about a tag number or a vehicle number!

And people don't think we live in a fascist state.

Notice his immediate response was to intimidate the kid

It is cops who are giving themselves a bad name.

P.S. This video gives me hope for the future.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

The best VID I have seen in months

Thank young lad, you just brightened up an already beautiful spring day.

Liberty = Responsibility

Oh how the brushfire of

Oh how the brushfire of Liberty spreads! During dark times even if it is small as long as there are the brave ones to carry the torch of liberty and self-preservation there is hope that the time will come that the torch can again be set to the tinder box fields of the growing irate citizenry to alight again in a glorious blaze! Even a few years ago it seemed that hope was fading, that we would slip quietly into the ice cold waters of tyranny. But the tide is turning now, we can feel it grow in our hearts and minds and every small piece of evidence builds the case for victory.

If enough different people make viral videos exercising their rights it will soon become an internet meme- an unstoppable cultural force that sweeps the internet from one corner of the country to another. The New Haircut Guy, the Cat Face in Bread Slice, the Cinnamon Challenge will all pale in comparison to the coming meme of Online Liberty Activism!

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

The freedom fighters are getting younger and younger

I love it!

LOL

The 12 year old seems more mature than the big fat kid dressed up as a cop. He got totally busted riding his big wheels where he wasn't supposed to and all because he wanted a smoothie.

sheesh...

is that guy even an officer? not showing his badge number? ...
that is way more unlawful than parking on a sidewalk and obstructing a right-of-way...

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

It looks like it is pretty viral too.

I found it in the British tabloid, the Daily Mail.
