Yep, they chased us all the way through Hancock Park with their light shining on us.
But they gave up when we entered the grittier East Hollywood neighborhoods.
Plus we got the LAPD escort after the Ralphs stop

after the LAPD being absolute asshats in the ralphs parking lot, I'm glad they tried to help us((?)) in some way.

Did someone confuse LACM with C.R.A.N.K. Mob again? Or did you guys do something to earn that extra surveillance?

Yeah what was up w/ that? I like how the ofcr said he was going to give it to us the hard way.

Write it all down, file a complaint, and come to the next Transportation Committee hearing.

Sounds bad ass, reminds me of a month ago when I was riding to Wal-Mart and the sheriff's chopper had its Night-Sun light me up for 10 seconds!!!

Oddly enough, the Sun Bear is a native species to where my parents come from, Malaysia.

damn, nice to see our tax dollars being spent wisely.
lapd shined the people's ride last month for a little bit last month between riverside and fletcher, but they didn't chase us too far.

Yeah I remember that....
But we didn't nothing when then?!??were in a freaking park!!
We didn't steal,tag nor harm mortorist enough for them to feel like there life was being threaten....but that then was only like a breif encounter with it and park police....

ha I got followed for a bit riding down century on wolfpack last monday.
03.28.09 - 9:30 am
and let me tell you.. in that neighborhood, I did not mind it.
03.28.09 - 9:33 am
i had no problem with the ghetto bird last night. their spot light works a whole lot better than my led.
03.28.09 - 9:34 am
^....yeah but id rather my tax dollars go elsewhere...
03.28.09 - 11:06 am
couple of kids jacked some jack daniels bottles, that may have been what started it

That thing burned up a lot of fuel trailing us night. Fuel paid for by the City taxpayer. Now wouldn't you prefer your tax dollars be used to catch those bike thieves in Silver Lake or maybe they should police those gritter parts of East Hollywood.
Really it is a waste of City resources.

Maybe the cops also knew that an all-star MR cast was riding the LACM and People's last night.
Roadblock, Tallcans, Stillline, Fuzzbeast, Barleye, Eddieboy, Krysta, Mikey Wally, Tarsis, Harry (Limefly) and Big Bike Dan to name a few.
03.28.09 - 11:52 am
there's no tax dollars left to spend anyway. might as well dig the hole deeper.
but yeah, it's a ridiculous waste to bring out the copter for a bike ride.
03.28.09 - 12:10 pm
I picked a fine time to miss that all-star MR line up!!!!
03.28.09 - 1:53 pm
Yeah, no doubt, last night had one hell of an all-star lineup.
Without the cops, last night would have been perfect, so much fun.
Just about everybody smoked me out last night, thank you very much. Find me next month for stacks of joints.
03.28.09 - 2:39 pm
yeah last night did kick major ass...

Those helicopters are up there sitting idle all night unless they are on a call. They are gonna burn that fuel whether they follow us or not. They were most likely called in to provide an eye in the sky for the cops on the ground to run traffic control on us.
If a bigger call comes in (car chase) then they just peel off and let the ground units follow.
If I was flying over LA and saw that many cyclists i would love to watch them stampede thru town from that vantage point.
