    That little area was a bad place when I grew up nearby on Leroy street, right off Geneva Ave., and it's a bad place now. It basically been a gang and drug driven mini-state for 40 years.

    Re: Dirt Bikes Seized by Boston Police

    So if you piss off your neighbor the Gestapo will pay you a visit

    If Roof's neighbor says I think my neighbor is Pyscho and now he has a gun
    "Why are you telling us?"

    Though those dirtbikers put on a show , what in reality did they do wrong
    Was anyone hurt, was property damaged.... guilty of fun* Vehicle registration being
    government taxation on the weakest of reasons

    I have no problem with a stop and Vin verification if there was reasonable cause to believe
    there was stolen property

    Stolen Dirt bikes and atv's taking over the O'Neill tunnel is fun?

    When someone here has their bike stolen, we are the first to decry thieves as scum and call for their public flogging, yet some can turn this issue into government over regulation.

    Get some accurate context, go there, observe the environment, talk to the residents who are trying to live a decent life in a bad area and ask if they feel the government should leave these criminals alone to pursue their fun.

    If you have never lived under the oppression of gang rule, where you cannot walk on certain streets or look a certain way, then you cannot understand why confiscating the bikes was the least that should be done.

    What are they doing wrong? Creating an unnecessary public disturbance, for one. Impeding the flow of traffic, for another.

    I will happily say that if I am ever being held up in any way by these dipshits there will be another Range Rover incident. Take that shit back to the D.R.

    Its illegal to store dirtbikes in the PJs? When did that happen?
    Look, I know these bikes are likely stolen, I know these guys are all fuckheads, but at the same time, it scares me it becomes that easy to confiscate vehicles. What happens if Im working on my bike, and my neighbor gets pissed off from running the engine, and the cops show up while the bike is leaning against my house for an oil change. Is that grounds now to confiscate it? Apparently so.

    Re: Dirt Bikes Seized by Boston Police

    I ride through Mattapan daily on my way to and from work. Every day we are passed by 3 to 10 dirtbikes and ATVs - all of them doing wheelies. It's so common in fact we just call them the Mattapan Shriners and assume there's a parade somewhere. It's remarkable more of these asshats don't end up under someone's bumper.

    do you live in a city??

    better read up - might have to be careful if they apply/are enforced or if a reason to enforce them exists (ie. pissing off neighbor)

    in long beach the laws as they are written are very strict...just loosely enforced. No vehicle may be parked on any part of the property except in a garage or on a driveway that leads up a garage. dirtbike = vehicle (everything has a title), and parking it against a side of a house on grass (unless that was the driveway) is considered illegal. I know, because I've gotten a ticket before for parking a street bike on a paved walkway leading up to the front door - on private property.

    to be honest, dirt bikes are a country thing...even if they have stupid laws like that out there, ain't nobody gonna care.

    @ DB - why haven't you moved to the desert southwest yet, and built a private MX track & roadrace track in your backyard?!?

    No, if you store 30 motorcycles, scooters, dirt bikes, quads, and three V8 drive trains in your yard, in a very denselely populated part of the city, nowhere near a place it is legal to ride one, have no legal proof of ownership, and have pissed off your neighbors by acting the fool in most other matters, you should probably expect a visit from the PD.

    I know it's fun to throw the term "Gestapo" around to demonstrate belief in governmental over-reach. No obe in the slightest familiar with the real-life situation thinkd BPD is wrong on this: they did what 99% of citizens wanted them to do.

    There are a couple groups like Boston Bike Life that say as justification, "Oh, if we weren't stuntin' we'd be out shooting each other." I'm all in favor of occasional anarchy but this isn't about personal expression, it's about complete selfish disregard for the obligations of citizenship. It's the 'other entitlement."

    Drove back from the airport last night; coming through the Dot I almost destroyed some teenage fuckwit on a KTM. Weaving in and out of the lane (from the shoulder!), no lights, no helmet.. but had a license plate.

    You, I've just moved to my own little slice of heaven in the Dot, including a 1/10th acre lot. Lets see what I can store....

    Re: Dirt Bikes Seized by Boston Police

    I'm surprised that if they left the bike parked against the side of the house, a rival neighbor or gang member didn't steal it from them, lol

    and how did boston get so many parking spots w' the tow trucks back to back??

    This is about three tenths of a mile from where a 7yo just got shot. And that's this month.

    I support the LEO's investigating probable stolen property

    Please stop defending ASSHAT laws just because you are not a fan of those being hassled

    You are PROUD that your town government has invented way to harass the citizens ?

    You believe the lawyer class, that they quantify human behavior, resulting in them cashing in

    The overlords will be happy for you to vote and act the way they tell you, maybe they will permit you some crumbs

    Wake up and smell the big brother

    1. I am no defender of governmental overreach.

    2. I live near there, visited the street after this was announced, and drive and ride in the area regularly. You have zero factual understanding except what you read in these news reports. So you accept their reports as fact? You accept the BPD News report as fact?

    3. You started screaming GESTAPO when you do not have the slightest understanding of the facts of the situation. Or what the Gestapo was and did. Does Godwin's Law require an actual reference to Hitler or does Gestapo reference count?

    4. I'm one thousand times more concerned about issues like license plate scanners than seeing wanton criminals who disregard both law and decency get their just deserts via a completely public legal process.

    youre all concerned about them seizing your property? lots of states allow police to confiscate cash if you cant prove where it came from. which means if youre someone that carries a lot of cash on you and you get stopped for some reason and the cops find it, they take it. good luck getting it back.

    Thats why I don't typically carry around large amounts of cash. I do however lean bikes against my house on a somewhat regular basis.

    Re: Dirt Bikes Seized by Boston Police

    Fourth Amendment
    Main article: Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution
    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.[71]

    The Fourth Amendment guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. It was adopted as a response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, which is a type of general search warrant, in the American Revolution. Search and seizure (including arrest) must be limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court, usually by a law enforcement officer who has sworn by it. The amendment is the basis for the exclusionary rule, which mandates that evidence obtained illegally cannot be introduced into a criminal trial.[86] The amendment's interpretation has varied over time; its protections expanded under left-leaning courts such as that headed by Earl Warren and contracted under right-leaning courts such as that of William Rehnquist.[87]
