SB 1187 to finish the gutting of public education in Oklahoma is now in the House for it's approval.  Boy, we're gonna get some good jobs coming to the state after this....

The ignorance is literally breath taking.

Now, I thought this bill

SB1457 would define the term “motorcycle profiling” to mean the discriminatory use of the fact that a person rides a motorcycle or wears motorcycle-related paraphernalia as a factor in deciding to stop and question, take enforcement action, arrest or search a person or vehicle with or without a legal basis under the U.S. Constitution or Oklahoma Constitution.

...might have been aimed at the habit of routinely referring to motorcyclists as "gang members" but it could just as well address this

Sorry for the drift, but I thought his excuse for tear-gassing a busy interstate highway was worthy of a closing footnote.

Marcus Hernandez said that he was sitting in the bed of the truck when he saw a cloud of the spray drifting toward him. “I got asthma, so I couldn’t breathe. It was pretty bad,” Hernandez explained. “I said, ‘Why you’d spray us?’ and he said, ‘Because I felt the bikes were too close to my vehicle.'”

Botello said that the officer then opened her passenger door and grabbed her friend’s cell phone, claiming that it was evidence in the case. “He snatched her phone without even asking for it. That’s when he started demanding everybody else’s,” she said.
