so has anyone else noticed that none of the crimes (I.e. fights downtown, bike accidents, etc) have not been in the local news at all? I work at a bar on state street and witnessed some questionable things as well as saw video footage that has been plastered all over Facebook of what seems to be a pedestrian in a large crowd getting hit on a bike near 10th & state. I grew up around the biker community so I'm not hating but I think there are some safety concerns here. is it a coincidence that the only place I saw anything reported was Erie alerts and facebook or do you think the news agencies were explicitly told not to cover these stories? what do you guys think?

What about the fight on Friday night at 9th. & State Street? There was a group of bikers kicking the snot out of some other red necks, when we stopped a policeman up the street who also witnessed it, he said, "It is God's way of getting rid of those less desireable in society". Gotta love it! Just wish the bikers would have caught up to Ralph Pontillo and the other "less than desirable" members of the manufacturers association.

@ems dispatcher....there were a ton of police calla for fights on state street listed over the weekend on Erie alerts and there is a video going around of what appears to be a pedestrian or passenger who goes air bound which is posted on another thread on topic. you're telling me police and ems weren't called on for any of this? I witnessed a bunch of girls fighting and spitting on each other but their boyfriends broke it up pretty quickly before anyone got injured so I don't think the police ever came for that.

I work for the security company that Ralph hires to work with EPD. Ralph makes it VERY clear that we are to cover up anything that would make the event look bad. We use our own radios to get to fights and cover them up so they don't get called over scanners for everyone to hear about. It's so important to keep it "looking" like a good clean event that they bring our big bosses from Pitts up to run the show. We all have to sit through briefings everyday to make sure things are covered up quickly to keep Ralph and his show looking good to the people of Erie.

Watch Tall Ships in September. The big guys from Pitts running the show and that's where the money is going. Would have been nice if they would give some of the hours to us Erie guys. The best part is that we charged for armed security and only half the guys will be armed the rest will be unarmed.

Thanks for the information. This is exactly what I thought. There is no way they are going to allow this thing to not happen in the future. There could of and should of been a bunch of news on some of this stuff. Obviously these organizers have some major pull with the mayor & law enforcement to keep this crap under wraps! What a CORRUPT town!

Had a great time at Roar on the Shore, can't wait for next year. This is great for the city of Erie and it is always for a good cause. Incredible how this event has went from a few thousands bike for the 3 day event to 100,000 bikes in such a short time.
