Late one night I was riding home and noticed a young lady in handcuffs talking to a cop. Her bicycle was on the ground. I decided it was my duty to provide her with a third party witness in case things escalated. I parked my motorcycle in the entrance to a gated HOA property between the exit and entrance. My helmet camera was rolling. I set up my phone, which uploads to Dropbox, so that in case anything bad went down, I had an “undeletable” copy of it.
The first officer kept staring at me. After a few minutes, he got in his car and radioed something in. I am guessing he asked for his buddy to come see what I was doing because a few minutes later Officer McFidgety came up and the rest is as shown on the video.
They proceeded to give the girl a citation and then unhandcuffed her and she rode her bicycle away. I rode off. Always record the police, let them know we are watching and they will behave better.
I wasn’t going to post it, but the amount of fidgeting he did changed my mind.
