Cycling in Sydney Australia
Especially grumpy ones might try to do you for "illegal use of a warning device" or worse such as "excessive or overt indications of happiness while riding a bicycle" (I made that last one up)
I would love to see some kind of Alley Cat style event - 15 to 20 hitters roll past the cops with no helmets on. Few cameras rolling for reaction... first one back to the pub with no heat on them wins.
Like this idea. Something to make the pedro cops feel useless and mocked. Make them go back to their superiors and say "Targeting people on bikes sucks, and isn't worth the effort. Maybe we could do something else instead?"
Yesterday evening as I was riding down Lilyfield Road hill I saw a LOT of cops. Thought no this is WAY over the top.
Found out today that Milo Y held a secret event at Le Montage last night - and there was a massive police presence.
I thought here is my big chance for a pursuit! Mounted cops, cops on motor bikes, cops in cars, vans etc... It would have been Benny Hill epic but alas they were harassing people who oppose fascism and not people using bicycles for transportation.
There was also a public meeting in a park, heard sirens but didn't go. Anyone read John Safran's book on the far right crazies?
dunno - how about the hundreds of far-left crazies causing all the ruckus?
Safran gives them a serve too, but they don't seem to be as stupid as the far right.
yep, dinged my bell furiously as I went past them, Tues and Wed, plus 2 more on bikes on the bay run (Tues).
Did Milo pay for all those cops, or are we getting reamed for the cost.
Don't bother replying as I know the answer.
I always find it amusing that those who purport to oppose fascism want to shut down free speech.
I do not think that word means what you think it means.
"...if a society is tolerant without limit, their ability to be tolerant will eventually be seized or destroyed by the intolerant..."
again - you use that word.
Fascism /ˈfæʃɪzəm/ is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and control of industry and commerce
