Just a little perspective for ya. The paper only gets what is printed in a media log by a Police department. If they had all the details, half the stories would never get printed because they are just not "eye catching" enough. Have some Police used a taser when it was not totally warranted? Yes. But what you don't hear about is people that get hit with batons and bones broken because the old trusty baton is not a new technology and does not have wizard like properties. You would be amazed at the amount of people that fight with cops or do not follow simple instructions. What is the common theme with 90% of these people? Meth! It does not do a body good. Safe riding.

I am not going to comment on whether using the teaser gun in this situation is appropriate or not, but it teach us this...
next time we are on our bike and thinks that we can outrun cops/security guard/rangers...we should really think twice.

I hear a lot of conservative/right wing stuff on this board and sometimes I wonder how people can be so ill informed. Comments like this one by Portola Vince explain it all. Vince is a racist.

Just a thought here: I don't know you and I don't know Portola Vince. Speaking purely for myself, I wouldn't have chosen those words he used, but in intending to be funny or ironic, I've occasionally let my mouth get ahead of my judgement. Racist is a pretty strong word, and I wouldn't throw it around lightly. Maybe you ought to pm the man with your concerns before making an issue out of something. Give the man a chance. How about it?

"Omar Herrada Rivera" = hispanic to anyone with half a brain.

Most hispanic illegal immigrants ("using false citizenship government documents") in the US are from Mexico.

How does stating the obvious make someone a racist, let alone "conservative/right wing"?

I just love the tolerance of the liberal/left wing: conservative/right wing = "ill informed". :nono:

the chain probably skipped, that's why he fled on foot.

... also you never know, someone on a Pacific could be undercover ;)

i only live about 10 miles from where this happened .. hamilton city is a SMALL ass town ... id guess it encompasses 2 square miles tops .... i ride at night in chico all the time with no lights and if i ever get rolled and im near bidwell park ... you can bet ill make a break for it into the park cause all the gates are closed

next's are such pos'es ... i got one of their beach cruisers from walmart for $60 .. so far ive had to tighten the headset multiple times, new chain, new seat, and one of the bolts that holds the front wheel on stripped out last time i changed a flat

but anyways ... back to the article .... glenn county sheriffs are on top of their ish ... if you show em respect they are cool but you try and be smart and youll go straight to jail .... i know this cause when we go tubing the sac river is the county line from butte to glenn and the launch is on the glenn side. Sucks getting aressted over there cause their county jail is in willows which is mad far from chico .... i had to bail out a friend last year that got a drunk in public on the boat launch

I woulda tazered his ass too.
OK, here's the scene. You're a COP, you wanna pull a guy over on his bike, tell him to get some lights. He turns andruns. You might be thinking, "Hey that guy could be 1) armed, 2) dangerous, 3) high on Meth, 4) carrying a boatload of Meth, Crack, coke etc, 4) skipping a warrant.
So, your options are
1) get out and chase the ****er down, alone, w/o backup and wrestle him down (If he's high on meth and has 20 lbs on you, you're ****ed in that tango.
2) Shoot his ass with your 9mm
3) tazer him
hmm. I know where I'm gonna go with it.
And I hate cops, but I understand that their job is very tough, and they've gotta make SERIOUS decisions, life and death isht in a matter of moments...

Oh, and drop the racsim crap, it's effing passe to hide heind your keyboard and call people names. Wanna make a difference, Vote, volunteer, Organize. Do something positive instead of whining in Anonimity...
