Follow up to the Squid on the Gixxer thread...

There was a thread in the pictures and video section about a squid that ran from the cops and got caught. Here's the link:

https://www.zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=39811

Well, this and the discussion in that thread seems to be pretty timely as this is what happened near where I live:

http://www.myfoxdc.com/myfox/pages/H...Y&pageId=1.1.1

Two people are dead and many are injured from the resultant aftermath of a squid on a sportbike running from the cops. Now there's a region wide manhunt for this dude. I fully expect to be pulled over when I take my 10 out this weekend as it's a black sportbike which is the initial description of what the bike looked like. Long term, this is going to make just riding around in a sportbike in this area difficult at best. And this just fuels the rising calls by people to ban the very machinery we all love. Just because some aholes can't practice appropriate judgement and save their antics for the track or at least not in a high traffic/densely populated area.

RIP to the innocent motorists that had no part in this mess.

That guy needs to turn himself in and take responsibility for his actions. :headshake

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

"The motorcycle rider swerved in front of a civilian car and sped away, causing the officer's car to hit the civilian's. That car rolled down an embankment onto the outer loop, where five other cars crashed into each other."

Ummmmm? Is it just me or does it say the cop ran into the civilian vehicle causing the chain reaction? You know DAMN FREAKING WELL that if the officer caused this crash being an idiot they will still blame it on that motorcycle!!! Something tells me the officer's vehicle footage of this happening will somehow "disapear" ...... god this crap makes me mad.

BS or not, this kind of incident isn't going to win any brownie points with the public. There's already been tons of news stories before this tragic incident about how "bullet" bikes are a menace to public safety. This is just more fuel for them to crack down on sport bike riders in general. If anyone is familiar with that stretch of highway, that squid had no business riding the way he did because if it wasn't a crash caused by pursuing cops it would be because he freaked out some motorist.

The public is going to hear what there told for every squid like action there are 10.000 law abiding riders just going about there business but that does not make the news just My 2 cents

Yep. I495 near exit 13. They're just now clearing out the equipment from the accident scene....many hours after the incident.
