Incidents involving gangs of unruly dirt bikers and motorcyclists running amok in Washington DC have been caught on video. Due to a law restricting DC police for chasing the bikers, they have been breaking the law with impunity.
Daily Caller News Foundation reports:
The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) has a strict â€œno chaseâ€ policy, which stops police from giving chase to criminals on dirt bikes. TheÂ thinking behind the policyÂ is that chasing suspects will create a more serious risk to citizens than just letting them go, and police can catch them later.
The reality, however, is that with police officersâ€™ hands tied, illegal dirt bikers are free to ride when and where they want with complete disregard for the law.
Sunday night, two videos surfaced on YouTube showing exactly how these marauding dirt bike gangs operate.
The first video, uploaded Sunday evening, shows a gang of more than 100 dirt bikers and all-terrain vehicle (ATV)Â riders flying down a popular stretch of 14th Street Northwest, running a red light and weaving through traffic â€” several riders nearly get struck by a turning car.
Here is the first of two videos capturing the chaos that nearly results in a serious accident.
But that wasn’t all.
