Pepper-Spraying Texas Cop Update



Quote:
A firestorm erupted last March when a video surfaced that showed a Texas police officer pepper spraying a group of motorcyclists riding past his patrol car. Motorcyclists who watched the video (now with more than three million views) were angered at the apparent assault on riders. The cop, William Figueroa, claimed he needed to spray the riders because they wouldn’t vacate the lane next to his patrol car that was pulled over at the side of the road.

Surely the overly aggressive cop would be severely reprimanded for his actions that could’ve hurt or even killed riders as they rode past, right? Well, thanks to our favorite moto-riding attorney, John Butrus, we were able to dig into the situation. Sadly, the outcome of the investigation seems to be far too lenient for an officer who demonstrated a complete lack of concern for the safety of our fellow riders.

How about a happy conclusion.

Fire and sue the officer, sounds reasonable considering his stupidity "if the story is true"....however going forward, any group of bikers terrorizing the highways and blatant and dangerous disregard for others as well as cops, the general public can run them over at will.

I am all for that.

I only live about 2 hrs from Fort Worth and the police officer was completely in the wrong. The bikers in the video weren't speeding, crowding, or in any way endangering the officer or the car the he pulled over. I believe he should have been fired on the spot, because he was the one making a very unsafe for all of the bikers. Even thou the pepper spray didn't shoot far enough to get any of them he was and IMHO still a complete DUMBASS.
