Police Motorcycle Stunt Teams, Its the Answer

Stoppies, Keeping Motorcycle Cops Cool Since 1952

Stoppies, Keeping Motorcycle Cops Cool Since 1952

I posted this photo a few days ago because I thought it was rather cool but while eating a bagel, I pondered the photo more in depth. Would it not be radical if a few Police Departments had a Motorcycle Stunt Team? Ok, the idea would seem like a blatant waste of money. Well maybe not. Police Departments combat many issues. High crime rates, bad morale within the department and community relation issues. There are ton of reasons why people distrust the cops and some are valid and some are not. I guess what is important to me, is that the streets are safe. The streets will not be safe if the community does not have a positive relationship with its Police Department. That fact cannot be argued.

So use the Motorcycle Police Stunt Team as a Community Relationship Program. There is nothing that brings the community and police together like having Officer Sgt. Tackleberry jump his Harley through a Ring of Fire. There is no end to the zany antics our Police Officers could do involving their policy department issued cycles. One thought would be “Police Officer Jousting” on bikes. Kind of like combining The Middle Ages with Evil Knievel Motorcycle Depravity.

I’m just saying as a lover of everything motorcycles, I would trust The Police a bunch more if I saw them doing Stoppies, Wheelies and Death Loops every once in a while. It would make the Policy Officer seem more human and yes, more cool. But then again, I have the emotional maturity of a 7-year-old and have never met a motorcycle I did not like. So my judgment may be truly flawed.

    The motorcycle cops in Texas go through an extensive training course, but it’s tailored toward safety rather than stunts. Then Los Angeles motorcycle cops are as a killed as any I’ve seen anywhere, and have been back as far as 1946. But if you want positive interaction between cops and citizens the cop has to be out of his car and on foot walking a beat and everyone knows him by his first name.

    Those are my observations and opinions.

    My auto correct is working. Please read killed as skilled.

    My Texas grandson is a city cop. At age 26 he has already been promoted to K-9 unit. He and his dog don’t fit well on foot, on a motorcycle, or a bicycle.

      Your right on all accounts but it would be cool to see two motorcycling cops Jousting while on their cycles or seeing Officer Tackleberry jumping his cycle through a ring of fire..I can only dream of such things…….

    Our police can perform these stunts – on their paunches! No wonder they cannot catch criminals!
