"I don't think the crowd will be happy until you are tarred and feathered.   I actually think you articulated it well.  People are focusing so much on your acknowledged biking error that they ignoring the disproportional response by…"

"Right you are..I had never checked the profile.  Apologies to Haruspex."

Josh L. replied to haruspex's discussion Run-in with plainclothes cop
"I must have missed that sorry.  I assumed he was male..probably because males are more reckless drivers/bikers (sweeping generalization, yes...and I'm male btw)."

Josh L. replied to haruspex's discussion Run-in with plainclothes cop
"I came down on him initially hard to. But closely reading his comments it seeemed that the cop was unnecessarily hostile.  Obviously bitching out Haruspex did not as he's more upset about the cop than his own driving.  I learned this…"

Josh L. replied to haruspex's discussion Run-in with plainclothes cop
"Look I don't support hostility and humiliation. But I yell at drivers when they come to close to me or flagrantly break the law.  So I think you can understand why this cop was so irate - you almost killed  yourself and others.…"
