So what´s the problem.? The cop was pissed, got it out of his system, but he did say "we´re good" at the end, right? so it´s all good then. :-)

Makes us all look like hot heads. Bad for the badge.

Its unfortunate but there are hot head cops like any other profession. Clearly the officer screwed up and that was his way of taking the heat off himself.

a.t. why is it ok? he threatened the guy with tickets so he wouldn't get in trouble for an accident and the biker didn't want to press it. why is he so much better than the biker? because of his badge? i have many friends that are police and this as a bike rider disgusts me you would defend that.
