Governments Worldwide Are Denying Motorcycle Riders Their Constitutional Rights
If you belong to a motorcycle club, attend motorcycle runs and activities, or simply ride a Harley Davidson motorcycle while wearing traditional biker apparel, the following information applies to you.
During the past several decades, there has been an intentional, systematic encroachment of motorcycle riders rights by the government and its agencies. These actions selectively criminalize, isolate, and profile those of us who ride motorcycles.
This method of profiling has recently escalated to those who simply ride Harley Davidson motorcycles while wearing what the government classifies as Biker apparel. If you have followed the recent news articles concerning bikers, you have noticed all the so-called safety checks and traffic stops by law enforcement agencies. During these traffic stops, they have gone so far as collecting DNA from motorcycle riders. This is profiling: an attempt to intimidate and discourage riders from enjoying the freedom of the open road.
These collective tactics are being used by our governments against a growing group of citizens who ride Motorcycles.
If we don’t understand how serious this problem is, and attempt to address this discrimination, we will soon be completely stripped of our rights as citizens of our respective Countries, States, and Cities, to ride motorcycles.
It is easy to see that Government and Law Enforcement agencies are determined to deny us our rights guaranteed by our respective constitutions. Those agencies who claim to be acting lawfully are nothing more than rogue outlaw Government and Law Enforcement Gangs violating Constitutional Law.
Something to remember, as stated by the U.S. Supreme Court when setting the standards for conduct by our government and agencies:
“Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizens. In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for the law; it invites everyman to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.” Omstead v United States, 277 U.S. 438 (1928).
History always repeats itself when members of a society allow their government to selectively deny a group their citizen’s rights by standing quietly by without any objection.
Let us not forget that we also have a Constitutional Right to seek Redress from the Government’s unlawful actions in the Courts. I think it’s time we acted together and seek that redress in the Courts.
