Someones bike has been stolen!!!

check this out!!!

i was riding with my cousin to his house and dropped him off. all of a sudden there was this cop that swooped by us as he was put his bike in his garage. we thought he was going to give us a hard time because his bike is loud as hell, but he just kept going.

as i was on my way home around 3:00am i pulled out of his driveway and at the light around the corner there was the same cop and he began to follow me!!! about 2 lights later he pulls me over and asks for my drivers license and insurance like normal, but i didnt have my insurance card on me! Next thing you know 2 more cops role up! He asks me if i have anything he should know about because he was going to pad me down...i'm scared as hell and i quickly reply NO!! So as he pads me down and asks me to open my backpack a 4th cop pulls up and they are checking my vin and inspecting the bike!

They call it in and finally got back a response that the bike was mine. Apperently, someone called in a stolen bike that fit my bikes description (very common bike scheme gsxr blue and white)! I was wondering why they kept looking at the key hole...they wanted to see if i had hot wired the bike or something!

thats my exciting night.... because i cooperated he told me what was up and let me go on the no insurance card! they were all shooting the sheit with me after they scared the sheit out of me!!!

Keep you insurance card with the drivers license. It will save you a future trip to the court.

That's just because you look like the criminal type. But that's automatic for those riding a Suckzuki.

I'd just say no to the searching of the backpack. Don't think they can do that one if you simply say no and aren't arrested.

Because the Police have the authority to put citizens in jail. Let alone the fact that he didn't have his insurance card. Even when I have done nothing wrong, just the fact that I could be incarcarated for no reason scares the crap out of me.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Can the police search your backpack like that? Simply having a motorcycle that looks like another stolen bike should not give a cop the right to search your backpack.

If nothings in it, and you've done nothing wrong...I say let them search the backpack. It's small and won't take more than a minute anyway. If you say no, you'll just make anything harder on yourself...and maybe get some pointless tickets. It sucks, but that's the way it goes.

you should've ran. i hear they love that.

but really, you did the right thing. cooperation is key, especially when you haven't done anything wrong.

The police can only search your backpack if they have either:

1) your consent

2) probable cause, which means they suspect it was used in a crime (like they saw you putting drugs in it or something).

Riding a motorcycle doesn't give the officer probable cause to search.
So no, technically they can't search your backpack, but probable cause is something of a grey area, and the officer's word holds up in court than yours. Best policy is to let him search if you have nothing to hide.

<===lawyer in training. Should I have admitted that?
