Video: Motorcycle cops blowing through tax dollars

I'm not a one-percenter, nor am I a traffic saint.

Editor's note: The video is no longer publicly available because a larger video project (one we'll share with you, when it comes out) is in the works and the filmmakers did not want this video to draw attention away from the future film. Further, some people did not understand that our headline was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, not a criticism of police training. I spoke personally with a member of the Yonkers Police Department, listened to his concerns and explained that our intent was to be humorous. To anyone who didn't appreciate the joke, I regret when sometimes we aim and miss. — Lance Oliver, Managing Editor

I'm really just dumb, as opposed to brazen. (This morning, I bunnyhopped a motorcycle right past a cop who was texting away merrily. Two wrongs, in this case, made everything all right.)

I'm mostly just ambivalent towards the police. They do their thing and we do ours, and with luck, ne'er the twain shall meet. I mention all of this because I have no strong feeling about cops in general, but I do feel strongly about the cops in the following video. These dudes are having more fun than a tornado in a trailer park.

Here, scope it.

Come on, tell me you wouldn't love to rail on some big ol' dresser on someone else's dime. You want that job. (You do, trust me. I love being asked things like, "Lem, can you do a burnout? You can? Good, let me set up a GoPro," within the course of normal work chatter.)

Enjoy the rest of your day. Fellow hooligans: try to keep the comments section sort of civil, eh?
