Biker gang takes over the streets of Miami

Hundreds of dirt bike and ATV riders took over Miami yesterday when they swarmed through city streets and highways, taunting police and pulling wheelies in an apparent tribute to Martin Luther King.

Video footage of the gang shows them weaving through traffic and past police cruisers as they travel in a convoy along Miami and southern Florida highways.

However, police were unable to stop the gang because of the sheer numbers involved and have blasted them for endangering the lives of other motorists…

…Joe Sanchez, a spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol, said: ‘We’re not going to put their lives as well as other motorists’ lives in danger by chasing these kids on dirt bikes and ATVs,’ The Miami Herald reported.

He added: ‘They basically have no respect for other motorists.’

A Miami police spokeswoman told the paper: ‘We have no idea who they are, we have no idea where all of these people came from, we don’t know where it initiated from.’

The riders – many of whom posted footage of the rally on Instagram – later told the paper it was their way honoring Martin Luther King…

Old-fashioned tribal show of strength.  Say, I have a great idea: we need more “diverse” people so we can have even more such tribes.

    How I remember the sixties when Martin Luther King was rippin’ up the streets on an ATV doing wheelies.
    Such a touching tribute by the Mensa Club Of Miami.

    Yes the Florida State police had to comment about safety on Miami streets because the Miami city police have a history of slightly less dangerous behaviour lol :

    It really would only take about a 1000 strong group of Muslims to take over any European or North American city.

    Any military reaction to one city would spark the next city’s Muslim battalion to go into action, etc. etc. etc….

      There are (according to wiki) 5,200 sworn officers in the Toronto police department and another 2,700 who can’t carry arms and are not sworn (ie admin staff). So yes a 1000 muslims with AK’s could even likely take over Toronto.

      Speaking about this did anyone see the news article about the shipping containers of chinese made weapons that were found being smuggled into the US the other day?

      • Martin Luffa

        Ever since the 1986 effective ban on automatic and select-fire weaponry, there has been a black market for those sorts of firearms.

          These containers also had manpads, machine guns and rocket laundhers

    Police are really better suited for harassing commuters. This is a job for the National Guard.
