Well, that is great! If only I had that option.Always watching for IDIOTS on crotch-rockets in rear view mirror. Either move out of their way or flip on red/blue lights to let them know not to be stupid around me!
Santini as a former LEO myself I must disagree, unholstering is not brandishing. But it certianly leaves no doubt that if needed the weapon could and would be used. Brandishing is the sense that you're using is very broad, simple unholstering a weapon is in my opinion far from brandishing. Simply unholstering and keeping your weapon pointed safely at the ground and at your side communicates an intent to protect ones self. Brandishing, in my opinion, would consist of pointing and waving the weapon around in a very unsafe and dangerous manner.Unholster is the opposite of holster , so if you UNHOLSTER you remove your weapon from the HOLSTER , at that time wheteher you are an LEO or CIVILIAN you are BRANDISHING your weapon ! I have arrested people for brandishing a firearm so knowledge of the law and meaning of brandishing was essential ! The article said that the Harley was overtaken ( does not mean that they were screwing with him ) and like fossil said he may have panicked ! I know these bikes can overtake you in a split second from a great distance . It is a shame something like this happened , but it could be any of us ! Please be careful guy's because i enjoy you all being around on the forum , whether we agree all the time or not ! Happy 4 th !!
I rode my son's CBR6000. The best I can describe it is - it feels like you're riding rocket while getting vasectomy w/out anesthesia.I am absolutely amazed at the speed and power those machines have. If you have not ridden one..... you owe yourself a thrill to just try one out. I don't like the posture of the rider, but hey....those bikes haul ass and they don't have to alter their exhaust to get that performance; It comes stock. Like a rocket.
