Luckily his injuries were minor. What the hospital won't be able to treat is his bruised ego. What teasing this officer's likely to get from his comrades.(giggle)

I can only imagine the taunting..."Rule #23: Don't spit where you intend to turnaround. Rule #22: Never park your motorcylce on a banana peel."

Glad to see he didn't get hurt. But I AM sure glad to see one of those cocky cops get his "ego" bruised up!

"Johnson turned his motorcycle around to pursue the speeder,..."

Um, will he be issued a citation for making an illegal U-turn? I'd give $5 to the first officer who (jokingly) serves him with it.

Bless his heart, sooo not the way to begin your day. LOL

This man took a oth to protect and service,but you think about it the person speeding the officer was doing his job everyone needs to thank him for trying because one day you or a love one might be in the way of a speeding car and you may lose your life or someone you love dearly. i know that speed sometimes but i know you would have worry about me i would hit a tree before i hit another car .my daughter drives on 65 every day that is a nightmare for me. this officer needs to hold his head up and thank god he gets to go home to his family.I don't him but i would take a ticket from if got me speeding

This is the same location a motor officer running radar was killed not many years ago when a motorist veered off the roadway and struck him. At the time, I believe Serpas said he'd not endanger his officers by running radar at this location again, as it provided little buffer for careening cars and it was dangerous to enter traffic patterns to pursue violators. Again, the almighty buck in the coffers is more important than the life of a patrolman. How about running radar on arterial side-streets, instead, where it _really_ makes a difference in quality of living for an area?

Sorry, I don't feel bad for him! If he can't control his bike he needs to get off it! I guess I'm glad he didn't get hurt(except his ego) but no, I don't feel sorry for him one bit! Our city is full of gangs and our cops are chasing speeders cause it's a lot safer!

First, he hit a slick spot making a slow u-turn on a heavy bike.

Second, traffic enforcement is one of the 2 most dangerous duties of an officer, so it is not safer.

Third, more people are killed, or seriously injured on the road than from crime.

Last alot of felons, guns, and drugs are taken off the street due to traffic stops.
