LOU WROTE: "I tend to agree that cops focus too much on bikers. Not sure why... maybe just the reputation and ease of getting convictions because of the public's general dislike of bikers. Whats ironic is that real bikers live a rough and tumble lifestyle that many want, but just aren't tough enough to handle... thats why there are so many 'posers' out there. You know the ones, pretending to be badass bikers with their fake biker tattoos and imitation biker apparel. To those, I say sell you bike and stay in the f **** office! And to the cops...target some other group for a change...bikers have been getting more than their share of hassles for over 40 years!"Why Bikers?????
I think Lou sums it up... but you ask "Why bikers?" 1)bikers are easy targets for cops - they're easily identifiable, 2)bikers are not going to be a sheep when the cops overstep their authority and 3)the public usually doesn't object when bikers are being hassled because they steroetype and figure the cops are getting a "criminal" off the street.
