Do you know how fast those crotchrockets go? They easily do 170 mph (at least mine did). Police don't have a chance. Evadin the police should be a piece of cake. Not sure why they allow bikes to be built to go so much faster than cop cars. I guess its a way to regulate the population lol.

They should just shoot speeders like that. I agree that rules need to be followed. The person who wrote I don't ride anymore but when I did I never went the speed limit must have fell and hit his head or he is just brain dead

If anyone rides that fast I sure hope they have their organ donor status up to date. That's if there is anything left to harvest after the road finishes with their body.

It don't matter what he does, his adoptive mom, Deb, will fix it for him the best she can, pay his fines, bills and whatever else. He has no reason to have to grow up and be a productive responsible person in the community. He has spent more time in and out of the jail system that its a walk in the park for him. He has no care or concern for others around him. He has been one to deal drugs to kids in our community.
He has enough charges against him this time to put him back in the slammer. Reckless endangerment, license suspended or revoked, no registration, no proof of insurance and excessive speed are a few of the charges. Eluding or attempting to elude may also be in the mix. If his passenger didn't tell him to stop or let her off, I don't think kidnapping would apply. The PSP may want to interview the passenger. Maybe kidnapping is applicable. Not the first time he's been nailed for eluding the police.

I would hate to be a police officer. idiots who make the below comments are probably liberal criminals themselves. The police arrest a guy with an extensive criminal history, got him off of the road for a few more years (probably saving lives), called off the pursuit as soon as they got the tag, and in doing so, make the roads safer....probably saved a lot of people from drugs seeing that this guy was in state prison for drugs

The guy below is the type who would have a family member killed by a guy on a bike or some other crazy high speed driver, and then call the police fat lazy p i gs for not doing their job...then when they catch someone, he criticizes them

then you have people calling the police and making constant complaints about catching speeders...

So how can they satisfy everyone? Every move the police makes, the general public watches them like a hawk criticizing everything they do....but who do they call when their life is being threatened or when someone is burglarizing their house?

How do I know all of this? my son is a police officer and he tells me everyday just how ruthless the public is....

I dont ride anymore but when I did I never went the speed limit, no one else does either. The State police should never have persued a person on a bike who was speeding. Its unnecessary and dangerous, if there had been a criminal reason of importance then maybe on rare occasion it could be necessary. Just by the poilice making this moronic ddecision they put many more lives in danger in a situation where no ones life was in danger to begin. If this had ended in a fatality for the rider or any other persons then the accident would have been at the fault of the police and the officers that initiated the chase should and possibley would have been held on manslaughter. Start thinking with your brains instead of your badges and whatever else you pompous **** use to make sure you feel superior to all around you

I guess you think it's okay for motorcycles to be driving around the county at 100 mph? I guess you think the laws don't apply to them? According to your reasoning, everyone should just run from the police when they get stopped for speeding...why have laws??? you are an insane idiot

Thank goodness for Lt. Lauer and his Pennsyltuckey State Police. Without him we would all be in trouble. Long live Lt. Lauer and Sheriff Anthony too. He is better at softball than Lt. Lauer though.

You have to know these folks. Lights are on - noboby home! License Suspended, No Expired Tags, No Brains and No Insurance. Truly they are candidates
for the Obama Stimulas Package. But in today's society you can always blame it on someone else.

So you blame Obama for a Franklin County redneck running from the police on a motorcycle ... am I missing something here?
Meanwhile, in an unrelated comment, I suspect that years from now, the whole thing might actually be remembered fondly by the passenger

Typical cops - nothing better to do than chase the speeders at a very unnecessary high rate of speed which always has the potential to kill the innocent person. When will these guys ever learn? Never - why because they do the same thing but as we know its perfectly of for them because they have the badge.
