Pepper-Spraying Texas Cop Update



Quote:
A firestorm erupted last March when a video surfaced that showed a Texas police officer pepper spraying a group of motorcyclists riding past his patrol car. Motorcyclists who watched the video (now with more than three million views) were angered at the apparent assault on riders. The cop, William Figueroa, claimed he needed to spray the riders because they wouldn’t vacate the lane next to his patrol car that was pulled over at the side of the road.

Surely the overly aggressive cop would be severely reprimanded for his actions that could’ve hurt or even killed riders as they rode past, right? Well, thanks to our favorite moto-riding attorney, John Butrus, we were able to dig into the situation. Sadly, the outcome of the investigation seems to be far too lenient for an officer who demonstrated a complete lack of concern for the safety of our fellow riders.

Re: Pepper-Spraying Texas Cop Update

Sometimes the police get away with way too much when they are behaving in a criminal way. Lesson learned is to make sure as much as possible to avoid engaging with police when there are no witnesses and to always video and audio record them to protect yourself against the negligent and criminal acts they sometimes do when carrying out justice.
