your own luck    

After going 130 on public roads, all he is charged with is reckless driving. I am so sick of these young, punk jerks endangering the rest of us with no regard to laws or rules.

I THINK ITS CRAP ON THE POLICE DEPARTMENT TO HOLD PEOPLE AT GUNPOINT OVER SPEEDING ON THE FREEWAY,WHAT RIGHT DO THESE COPS HAVE TO STICK A GUN IN YOUR FACE BECAUSE YOU DROVE TO FAST? TOTAL GARBAGE ON THE PART OF THE COPS

I live in this area and listen to this go down. I didn't know who the driver was etc.

This is bull**** they pulled him at gun point. He did nothing wrong but speed. Oh and trust me they have people doing 140 to 150 on i80 when its clear.

The bike cop needs to busted back down to rookie and his pay cut in half. You can't just pull your gun out for a felony stop when the driver has not done a felony or there is no warrant charging him with a felony. Its clear he got it because he was a black man in a 110k or so ride.

Before any of you lame people say he was speeding well who hasn't for one and still does not give them a right to pull a gun out. Hell Jay Leno has been seen doing this but never yanked out by gun.

Another young idiot who doesn't care about anybody else. Maybe he should visit Hulk Hogans son and see how it feels to race a car at 100 + Mph and when you do that go see his friend. The problem is IDIOT(if your reading this)most of time when you crash your fine but you will kill someone else. I hope they take away your license and maybe look into getting a brain.
