Help MCN reclaim North Wales

MCN is to reclaim North Wales from the region’s anti-motorcycle police force by staging a mass ride to Snowdonia National Park.   MUST READ: what to do if you're stopped on the ride-out  With your help we plan to defy the force’s treatment of motorcyclists – described as an “enforce and displace” policy by police elsewhere – by descending on the scenic region in...

North Wales

Greetings CapodiCapo. I'm planning to go on the rideout to Nth Wales as well. Do you want a "wingman" for company? - I'm in Bedford, riding a Guzzi.

Steve Farrell's stats '400 pulled-350 innocent' say it for me.

We all need to be on our best behaviour, have legal everything and spend money when there. Show the power of the Biker Pound and then Nth Wales businesses will have a reason to tell their police to back off.

"MUST READ: what to do if you're stopped on the ride-out"

What does this quote in the original post refer to. I can't find it. :ph43r:

North Wales Police

These people are ridiculous.  Officious little things who find it far easier to stop bikers over something that should be legal compared with getting off their fat backsides and tracking down actual criminals who steal, rape etc.  These are lazy people who cost us as taxpayers a lot of money for a whole lot of nothing.

If you are one of the individuals who has stopped bikers over wearing dark visors, you should be ashamed for being petty and sad.  Either do what you are paid to do or change jobs.

police stop

rjohn, if you click on the link at the top it will give you some good advice about what to expect and how best to react to a stop,  plus someone put a further note stating that the officer must produce a "stop form" if you request one. I must say everyone should look at the guidelines on the metropolitain police website about stop and search forms. just put in police stop forms and look for the web site, its packed with great advice on your rights. It will keep him in the station for months afterwards, its great. I think its a general advice sheet rather then just london.

Big Business

What people have forgotten is the police, like the government, are first and foremost a business. And like any big business their ultimate goals are to:
a) Keep their jobs i) By making it impossible to go to competitors ii) By making their services mandatory. (Think of it more as a protection racket and you should get the idea.)
b) Increase profitability. To become profitable they must go after the crime with the highest financial reward, this is usual to the determent of other enforcement issues. Has anyone’s council tax gone down? Ever? My police service charge went up 8% this year alone.
c) Expand and dominate. I’m sure this needs no explanation, but have you noticed they all want to carry weapons now? Tasers and CS gas etc.

With (reported) violent crime in North Wales being equal to and in some cases above the national average you could be forgiven for thinking that the police would concentrate on the apprehension of such criminals.
