I agree, but...
 
Absolutely right that there are a LOT more important things for the cops to do. But I think the training is useful. It's not perfect, but it's better than learning by crashing...

Florida Model
 
One of the few things the Florida State Government has done that I like is requiring the M/C certification prior to registering the bike. You can buy all the bikes you want, but you can't take them onto public roads until you've passed (the admittedly imperfect but better than nothing) MSF course.



Seems like a good solution to me.

People would look at my physique funny when I was younger - told 'em I was a "Professional Arm-Wrestler".......................

Sometime around 1987...............

But, dude, going after unlicensed riders makes the sheeple feel safer. As long as they "feel safe" and think that "something is being done about it" they are apparently willing to live in crime-ridden hellholes.



The people of NYC deserve the craphole they live in. They are welcome to it.

God, I love it when I can get moderated down to dipstick by the fascist ostriches.

Well, duh. However this ain't Salt Lake City or Boise where there are maybe a dozen murders a year. This sort of LE activity is like sending the fire department to save a doghouse while across town an orphanage is burning to the ground.

Sounds raht subversive to me there, boy. Good thing that the War on Drugs has rendered this radical, out-of-the-maintream "right" largely superfluous. Now LE can be extra efficient.



Lots of jaywalkers and litterers to get next!

Well they don't have that in France. But they do have laws like:



Between the hours of 8AM and 8PM, 70% of music on the radio must be by French artists.



It is illegal to kiss on railways in France.



No pig may be addressed as Napoleon by its owner.



It is illegal to take photos of police officers or police vehicles, even if they are just in the background.



It is forbidden without a cemetery plot to die in the territory of the police department.



An ashtray is considered to be a deadly weapon

I broke one of those thick glass ashtrays over some guys head when we had the riot at the club in Guantanamo, dropped him like a sack o' taters.



Hope he was an airdale.......
