This "Jooze" you speak of...
Could it be purchased in cases?
Where exactly does one have to go to acquire said beverage?
I feel it could help me in my own mobile, one-man M.O.B.s of all the "rinky-dinks" I find myself rolling through.
I figure if I'm not in Santa Monica, I might as well light off a few firecrackers anyway.
And that's another thing I see plenty of out here.

Favorite things of last night's CRANK Mob:
-Clowns pieing people in the faces.
-Joose feeding frenzy at 711.
-Weird Mexican guys following us with techno music.
-Photographer + videographer following us with cameras.
-Climbing that metal thing at the park.
-Joose fueled dance party until the wee hours of the night.
-9 police cars for a few cyclists.

my favorite moment (ok - *one* of my favorite moments :)

- the moment when Richie, dressed in an unzipped skinsuit and football shoulder pads, madly and super sexily rode down the line of cop cars wildly humping the saddle of his lowrider bicycle.
- and then again when he rode back the other way! The cops were FLOORED!

Is Freeze Dance like Freeze Tag?

Is Freeze Dancing qualitatively different from Popping and Locking? Is speed the differentiating factor?

Please help me figure out this very important matter.

WOW, I cant believe i missed this ride, it looked awesome. I fell asleep around 8 before the ride and didnt wake til Sunday morning! Oops!

o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0

I had a really amazing dream though.

o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0

An iridescient bicycle, 40 feet tall and 200 people long, paraded into and over all of the king's land! It made a constant whinny-sound, like a finely-tuned mechanical unicorn, or a pirate ship made out of music boxes! I was dancing in my sleep! The bicycle would run over anything in its path, and turn it into a glittery dust blowing and blanketing the wind! Even some meanies in blue were hit and they blew away into the wind making blue and red whistles! Poof! Wherever the parade went, the wheels were spinning in a way that made Time reverse and proceed like the way a DJ scratched a record! Not limited by time, sound, speed, gravity, or physics in general, the parade rolled on! This immunity to reality allowed the parade to continue indefinitely, all over the Westside, and I think the next time I sleep the parade will still be going! Oh, and some of you were even there! Riding the bicycle! Even Franz! Whats really weird is that the bicycle said CRANK MOB all over the frame! Its so Freudian! Sheesh!

*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X

Anyway, I hope I can make the next one! BYE!

Palmazon --

I heard two people got ticketed.

It was brought up at, oh, stupid o'clock Sunday morning that we should get a collection going to cover the cost of the Culver City Police Department's utter lack of conscience. But I haven't seen anything posted about it here.

So then:

No Ridazz Left Behind meant that we all turned around when we realized we were a couple riders down. And now that those Ridazz got tickets, I think it'd be pretty neat if those who felt inclined chucked some money towards said tickets. Maybe we could send 'em to BikeRoWave, since C.R.A.N.K. Mob is a West Side ride. Maybe I've never been there and would feel a little weird plunking a box on their counter. Maybe I could go in and ask someone there.

Or here. Thoughts? Suggestions? Cans of whup-ass? Please advise.

Your pal,
Katie

Alex and Natasha both got citations for running red lights.

They both went into the Culver City PD and filed complaints in writing.

A ticket collection box would be a great idea. Both Natasha and, of course, Alex work at the Bikerowave, so I think that would be a great place to start a collections box.

for more information about their ordeals, you'd have to talk to them personally.

A reminder to those going to the training ride, ALC takes it's safety policy pretty seriously, so don't forget to bring a brain bucket.

Also keep in mind this is a daytime event, yes that crazy expanse of time with sunlight. So if you're like me, have pale skin and vampiric tendencies, sunscreen is advisable. Also be sure to bring a water bottle or two, from my observation I go through almost twice as much water during the day for the same mileage at night.

Yo - Katiepoche et al

Here's the story:

Natasha & I both got tickets for running a red light. We actually were not getting ticket until we returned (seperately) to observe other riders being detained by the cops. I turned around and came back and asked Lt Gutierrez why he was grabbing another rider at which point he said "you pull over, you're getting arrested". Natasha came back at that point with several other riders and argued with plainclothes detective Jason Sims . . . which is why she was ticketed.

So tickets for running a red light for running reds? Nope, tickets for running reds because we argued. So we're both fighting our tickets.

In the meantime we both went into the CC PD police station to complain and had a long talk with the watch commander. Niether of us have yet submitted our complaints. After talking to some other political folks (such as the S Box-inater) I think I may go the political route. That means going to the next Transportation Commission meeting, and approaching city council members with the complaint. There's some video footage and so forth so this will probably be a pretty effective route. And, if these groups ignore us we can still file a formal complaint.

So - starting a citation fund at BRW - I'm all for it . . . but it may not be necessary. There's a good chance that Natasha and I get our tickets dismissed. We could start one anyway for future rides . . .

RAGING RED MUMMY!!! See y'all tonight!

Someone bring me a Joose! I've never had one and can't find them anywhere in downtown Long Beach.

Look for me on a green Pista w/ red shoes. Walk up, karate chop me in the throat, and slam it against my face.

From what I remember from further up the thread (Zarathustra spake it, and by Zarathustra I mean Knittens), C.R.A.N.K. Mob is both the Third Saturday of the Month and the First Saturday After the Third Friday. Which means the 15th and the 22nd of December. Which means Woot.

So, I was entertaining myself by playing the cheerleader with a bullhorn at the Barrington/Gateway 7-11, when this big hippie dude gets my attention. He assumed that because I was getting people to yell "MOB!!!" and "MARCUS!!!" that I was somehow in charge of all this chaos. I made it quite clear that I was a dude with a bullhorn and no more, and we went on to have a pleasant little chat. He was there because he manages the building adjacent to that 7-11, and he felt compelled to try and get things a little bit quiet for his sleepy tenants. I told him I had almost zero power over the situation, but since he was about as cool about the whole thing as one can possibly be in that situation, that I would do what I could to help him out, which pretty much consists in me throwing up this here post.

So, whoever designs the Mob routes, fyi, there is a totally nice old hippie dude who would really appreciate us having our fun somewhere other than the Barrington/Gateway 7-11.

What do y'all think? I think that the videos make everyone look pretty bad. On the other hand, it seems like from a legal standpoint that it establishes that the cops pulled us over for something other than running a red light, threatened to take arrest all of us in a blanket arrest, were antagonistic, and let cyclists they previously asserted were drunk ride away. That would seem to be enough to undermine the validity of their giving Natasha and I tickets for running a red.

I'm working on my trial by written declaration right now. I gotta call and figure out how to submit video evidence.

I'm thinking about going down to the station and talking to the captain Natasha and I previously complained to and showing him these videos and then saying something like "I feel compelled to submit these videos to support my testimony in my Trial by Written Declaration" so he gets the message that they need to drop the charges or I'll put this out there.

dont think the videos will help alex. only the 5th one has any cars but no audio of the officers from the other 4 which would like all 5 together. looked like the 4th had a blur of a police car near the very end but i dont think it was a police car. If things came down 2 technicalities i think submittal of these would be fruitless.

They thought we were drunk but let us go ride on the streets anyway? The cop will look like an idiot if he says he thought we were drunk. Why would you let drunk people back on the road? He didn't even give me a breathalyzer. That's how that will play.

As a strategy, I still think that this is rather like shooting yourself in the head and hoping that a piece of bone fragment will injure the other guy.

From a legal standpoint the judge just has to consider the issue before her/him - did I run a red light. These videos indicate that the officer did not pull me over for running a red light, which undermines his assertion that he did. I'm not sure how the claim by the cop - who did not administer a breathlyzer or even a sobriety test - that I was drunk, is even relevant.



Alex Thompson

FWIW....

If anyone ever gets a ticket while riding (or otherwise), make sure that you contest the ticket and request 'trial by written declaration.'

This is your LEGAL RIGHT, and allows you to contest the ticket without actually having to appear in court. That's right...you NEVER have to go to court.

For more info...google 'trial by written declaration.' This really is an invaluable tool.

So - I just fired off my Trial by Written Declaration. Post office lines = hell. It's probably the worst writing I've done in a while, because I put it off to the last minute and didn't have time to edit. I don't even know PC's last name. BTW - thanks for the complete testimony PC.

So in honor of tomorrow's doomed to AwEsOmE CRANK Mob here it is:

I was cited for running a red light, specifically running a red light at Washington & Overland heading West. I did not run this red light.

Video the ticketing was taken by an anonymous videographer and is available here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6x9Tew2xY8
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzbg2mPGE3Q
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFPFe6c-kmE
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5t7ij_SEZN0

Detective Jason Sims is the ticketing officer for this ticket. Officer Chris Gutierrez is the one who pulled me over, and I primarily interacted with him. Sims was not wearing his uniform at the time of the stop, and he refused to identify himself at all for the duration of the incident. He and Gutierrez were driving an unmarked car and some people were not even convinced that Sims was a police officer. I hardly interacted with him but to receive the ticket. When I did receive the ticket, knowing that he refused to identify himself I noted his name on the ticket "J Sims". I asked him "J Sims, that's you? What does J stand for?" to which he replied "It stands for Officer" and I remarked that "that would be funnier if your first name began with O." Officers who responded to the call for back up can verify this anecdote, and photos as well as video 4 show Sims out of uniform (he is writing in the ticketbook and wears a white t-shirt.)

I believe that I was ticketed because I questioned Gutierrez's actions, and that he did not distinguish me from other cyclists.

I was riding with a group of about one hundred cyclists which was strung out across approximately a half mile. During the time it took this group to pass through Washington & Overland the light changed several times. When I reached the light it had already cycled green, then red, and turned green again as I approached. I passed through the light during the green, and shortly afterward it turned red.

Approximately when it turned red I heard yelling and honking. I looked over my shoulder and saw Officer Gutierrez in the middle of the intersection yelling at cyclists. He was trying to grab them as they rode past. I continued East at a very slow pace, about 5 mph, and when I next checked over my shoulder I saw Gutierrez pulling a cyclist of his bike, about 200 feet East of the intersection. I returned to that spot and asked Gutierrez "Why are you grabbing my friend?". He replied "What did you say to me?" and I repeated my query. He then said "Pull over, you're going to jail" and I complied.

At this point Gutierrez began berating me about his dissatisfaction with my question, and his general irritation with all the cyclists present. This can be heard in detail in the video 1 and 2. Unfortunately the visual is useless but the audio conveys enough. Gutierrez illustrates his frustration hysterically, describing "when you're laying in the gutter, and your head is splattered on the curb. . .". Despite the fact that I am right next to him you can rarely hear me, but you can always hear him. I'm speaking in a normal tone of voice and he is yelling.

In this video Gutierrez first indicates that he wants to take me to jail because I told him to let my friend go. He then goes on to say that I'm drunk, despite the fact that he never administered either a field sobriety test or a breathalyzer. At one point I say that "I made a mistake" with reference to asking why he was grabbing my friend. However, this is not against the law, nor is it running a red light. This first video clearly illustrates that Gutierrez pulled me over for reasons other than running a red light, and therefore undermines his assertion that I did run a red light.

Cyclists at the scene back this. For example Russel B (full last name at present unknown, I can get it) writes:

" Thompson and the uniformed officer continued to argue about the reason for his citation. The officer made several general statements about the group of bicyclists running a red lights, but did not state that he had seen Thompson do so. The officer also made general statements about members of the group being intoxicated, but did not make any move to perform field sobriety tests or otherwise act on this claim."

Gutierrez goes on to say "if we wanted to be jerks we units (unintelligible) here and have everyone arrested". This reflects Gutierrez's attitude that all the cyclists present were guilty by association. With over 10 cyclists present at that time, some of whom returned to the scene from the front of the group, there is no way that Gutierrez can have sufficient reason to arrest everybody. He eventually makes good on his threat by calling for back up. The CCPD brought 10 units to the scene to handle the approximately 10 cyclists.

Gutierrez told me if I blew into a tube he guaranteed it would show I was drunk. I replied that I could not take a breathalyzer immediately because I had recently had one beer. It is a well known feature of breathalyzers that they do not give accurate readings within 15 minutes of drinking alcohol. Instead of acknowledging this Gutierrez claimed I did not know what I was talking about, and told me to quit being a sidewalk lawyer. Gutierrez has a responsibility to administer the law accurately, and badgering people who stand up for their rights does not facilitate this. I felt unsafe.

Gutierrez's words and varying assertions undermine his assertion that I ran the red light. His partner's refusal to identify himself, and Gutierrez's aggressive attitude support that they chose to ticket us as retaliation for questioning their actions and asking for identfication from Sims. His repeated references to the many cyclists running the red and "arresting everybody" indicate that he failed to distinguish one cyclist from another.
