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.

Yeah spray a moving line of motorcycles to get them into the other lane.what if one got blinded and ran the cop over?vehicular manslaughter of a police officer would've been the charge there.but instead a dumb ass cop basically gets a slap on the wrist for a dumb ass action.welcome to 'Merica,where its only okay to be in a gang if you are being paid by the taxpayers;)

He's getting a bad rap for singling out the riders, but that's just because the media outlets are suppressing the footage of him drawing his sidearm shooting out the tires of the oncoming cars to get them to move over too.
Seriously poor decision making going on here.

Well I guess the only course of action is if you're going along and see a cop spraying pepper at you, run the fuker over and claim you were temporarily blinded by his actions. Yes, you might get hurt, but sometimes you have to take one for the team....;)

Kamikaze style. Although in this case you will ram the cop and then the door and end up making a cop sandwich.
