With the posts about good cops, bad cops prevailant around the traps of late, I just have to tell you guys this, as told to me buy my son. 1)Son heads off to play poker over near Epping Plaza about 40 mins(80%highway/freeway) from us. Around the Airport West area on the Western Ring Road, guy cuts him off(actually only missed him by a bee's dick). Son takes dad's advice and decides it's not worth the shit, and plods along. Turns out this guy's heading for the pool hall in the same vacinity and on their arrival this guy jumps out of his car and takes a verbal swipe at him along the lines of "Are you following me?", to which son replies "no, i'm here to play poker biatch". Next thing guy runs back to his car and grabs tyre lever and heads back in son's direction. Son didn't realise this was happening as he was taking his helmet off at the time, which turned out to be a good thing. The guy goes to take a swing, at which point son throws helmet at him, causing him to drop tyre lever to prevent helmet from smashing him in the chest, at which point my son gives him a face full of knucles buckling him at the knees. Needless to say, son jumps on top of him giving him an aweful hiding. Cops arrive, grab son and throw him to the ground, when interested onlookers who had seen it all evolve tell cops other guy started it and was totally un-provoked, so they let son up. Son explains what happened earlier, & is so p'd off he jumps straight back onto this guy and proceeds to give him another belting, the whole time the cops just stood there and watched. They eventually drag him off again and tell him to calm down, and promptly arrest the other guy. Son, who knows a little about auto mechanics says to cops, you might want to check under his car. Not 100% sure, but i'll bet he's removed the catalytic converter. Sure enough, no cat at all in exhaust system. Cops let other guy kno that's 5 g's to Govt coffers right there. Call towie, and car impounded. 2) Same night, on his way home, him and another rider stop at set of traffic lights, and were chatting when other rider says, "hit the gas NOW!!!", which both did and moved into intersection without going right thru as knob jockey #2 pulls up exactly where they both were. Lights go green and both just sit there, and as lights turn to amber both take off. Knob jockey, not as quick to react, but p'd off all the same, and wanting to exact rfevenge, plants the foot as lights turn red. Next thing son sees, and hears, as he checks his mirrors, are red and blue flashing lights and the wail of the siren. Disclaimer: Son is not a loose cannon. I can asure you that my son has never started a fight in his life. He's certainly finished a few, and it's not the first time the cops have stood and watched either :grin: . I think they believe it's karma for all the times they'd like to belt some wise arse, but of course have their hands tied. Sorry for the long read. Still no bike yet, so have to live off other peeps stories . Once I get back from NZ early April, i'll be looking into things with a bit more gusto :wink: .
