A Las Vegas cop rear ends a biker and then shouts him down to make out it's the riders fault.

Cop Rear Ends Biker .
Ooops ! I was expecting a different sort of video.
... Like a forfeit instead of an on-the-spot fine...

The rider acted very well , the police like all that respect , I don"t think I could have done the same even with our British reserve ! . He could have said that the law states if you are hit from behind the guy - or lady is to close , a proper distance should be there at all times . The biker could have reported the incident , but would he have got any justice here or there in the U.S. - I doubt it , and given the minor damage he was possibly correct , after -all he could have met the cop again , and would he be in a good mood ? probably not .

In many countries the police are feared more than the criminals. The US is rapidly becoming one of those states. Best not to argue with a cop on the street – he might shoot you* and claim it was necessary.
*ALL US cops are heavily armed (typically 2 side-arms, and a shotgun and/or assault rifle in the car), and shootings of unarmed persons are on a rapid rise.

Inexperienced or nervous rider saw a car indicating (but who had clearly seen him & halted) & stopped in his lane... everything textbook (though a bit OTT) apart from the cop who should be experienced enough to read the situation. My rule, never brake unless you have to... I've had 2 people run into the back of me, both in situations where I didn't have a choice.
In the UK the bike would have been riding down the white line, the car wouldn't have indicated & pulled straight across but the rider would have swerved & avoided it... & the cop, having seen it, would've done the driver for undue care... OK, I made the last bit up.
Thank god we allow filtering! It's far safer than waiting for the impact.

So I got it now.
If I rearend a bike (or a car), I should get mad at the biker and yell threats at him and blame him.
Glad this officer straightened this out.
Would love to see the reason for the tickets. BS.
This biker could have pulled his bluff and the officer would be in big trouble.
