  1. Killing bikers over a stupid traffic violation good work OCPD I hope you idiots don’t have bikers in your family.


    1. Typical snowflake mentality! No accountability for ones actions. Mr. Douglas killed himself, not the actions of the OCPD. Had he done what he should have, which is pull over, he would still be around today to tell his tale of how he was unjustly stopped by the OCPD.

      Mr. Douglas chose his own fate.


    2. how is it the OCPD fault that the rider wasn’t watching where he was going? He was the one responsible for that bike! He failed! If this is how you choose to a motorcycle then be prepared to pay the same consequences! RIDE RESPONSIBLY!!!!!


  2. Guy’s air bags probably failed to deploy. Such are the vicissitudes of life when a person chooses to use a crotch rocket as a means of conveyance.


  3. Looking at a picture like that its crazy to think what a direct hit from a good sized hurricane could do. OC would be gone.
