A firestorm erupted last March when a video surfaced that showed a Texas police officer pepper spraying a group of motorcyclists riding past his patrol car. Motorcyclists who watched the video (now with more than three million views) were angered at the apparent assault on riders. The cop, William Figueroa, claimed he needed to spray the riders because they wouldn’t vacate the lane next to his patrol car that was pulled over at the side of the road.

Surely the overly aggressive cop would be severely reprimanded for his actions that could’ve hurt or even killed riders as they rode past, right? Well, thanks to our favorite moto-riding attorney, John Butrus, we were able to dig into the situation. Sadly, the outcome of the investigation seems to be far too lenient for an officer who demonstrated a complete lack of concern for the safety of our fellow riders.

So you don't have to follow an 11 part story and be served up 6000 useless ads, the long and short of it is...

The cops is only going to receive unspecified internal sanctions. (Read: nothing is going to happen.) The police spokesman said, "Nobody that witnessed or was involved in this situation ever filed a complaint, ..." (Being a cop, the reliability of that statement is questionable at best.)

Not like those riders were innocent either. Typical gang mentality loser stunter groups taking over roads. Those bastards deserve worse than pepper spray. They are the same type of riders as those Hollywood Stuntz assholes who beat the crap out of the range rover driver in New York.
