Title: Man Arrested Because Riding a Bike Without a Bell On It Is Illegal in a Police State

Seaside Heights, NJ — A fairly worrisome video has been shared with the Free Thought Project this week purporting to show a man being arrested after police stopped him for riding a bike without a bell.

The video, posted to Facebook by user A Dot Norwood, shows officers from the Seaside Heights police department temporarily detaining a man who was riding his bike.

In the first brief video, the officers appear to stop the man and then let him go. However, in the second video, we see them stopping him again.

According to Norwood and the man being arrested, police stopped him for riding his bike without a bell on it. As the video shows, however, police quickly escalated charges as the man became agitated after he was stopped for such a ridiculous reason.

Within just a few seconds, the police officers are telling the man that he will be arrested for obstruction of justice because he is upset that he is currently facing harassment for lack of a bell on his bike.

“Under arrest for what?” the man asks.

To which the police reply, “obstruction.”

“Obstruction of what?” the man asks, “You’re telling me I need a bell on my bike.”

“That’s illegal,” says the officer. Moments later, police move in and place the man in handcuffs

“You see this, right?” the man asks Norwood. “They’re arresting me for not having a bell on my bike.”

2013 New Jersey Revised Statutes
Title 39 – MOTOR VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC REGULATION
Section 39:4-11 – Audible signal

Universal Citation: NJ Rev Stat § 39:4-11 (2013)

39:4-11. Audible signal
No person shall operate a bicycle unless it is equipped with a bell or other device capable of giving a signal audible for a distance of at least one hundred feet, except that a bicycle shall not be equipped with nor shall any person use upon a bicycle any siren or whistle.

After police get the man in handcuffs, the onlookers attempt to keep filming before they become worried that they too will be arrested.

The Free Thought Project reached out to the Seaside Heights police department who told us to contact the records department. As we had no name of the man being arrested, we were unable to seek out the exact charges he is facing.

If the man riding a bike committed an actual crime in which there was an actual victim, he most definitely deserved to be arrested. However, it appears from the video that the officers indeed stopped him for not having a bell on his bike and the resultant charges, if any, likely stemmed from the original stop.

As TFTP has reported on numerous occasions, riding a bike in a police state can be a dangerous act. In some instances, we’ve reported on individuals who’ve been mauled, nearly to death, by a police K9 for lacking a simple bike light. Also, last month, TFTP reported on a child who was run over by a police officer because, he too, lacked a light on his bicycle.

one hundred feet

No ways the dinky thumb triggered bells sold in bike shops are audible at 100 feet.

Non custodial arrest. It’s called an appearance ticket. It’s illegal in a few states... and I’m sure it’s not a constitutional violation. I will admit the law is dumber than Buckys dead worthless dog.

Don’t like it? Then run for office on the anti-bike-bell party. Change the law. That’s how us civilized folk roll, dipshit.

No actual conclusion can be made with out seeing the whole truth.

Ensuring your survivability as a species, should be your number one goal. Not homo activity, over sensitivity or treating lower forms of “life” on the food chain as equals.

" the police officers are telling the man that he will be arrested for obstruction of justice because he is upset that he is currently facing harassment for lack of a bell on his bike. "

So, the assets of the local PD ( two officers ) and the time of the local courts are used up on the offense of " Riding a bike without a bell " !

Wow ! If I were a taxpayer in that locale, I would be impressed.

I guess those officers are too candy ass to go after a REAL criminal. I guess they did not have any kids running a kool aide stand to go beat up, kittens to stomp, or any pet hamsters to shoot, so they went after this guy. Bet that made them feel like they are " Bad Ass ".

Boy, the hero suckers can sure be proud of these two candy asses !

What a freaking joke !!!

The political leadership and half of the police should be in prison,but there are a lot of nice people living in NJ,and there are a lot of pretty places there.

Unfortunately,due to the professional criminal class we call "politicians",it's like "China with white people".

Picture a grown man, riding his bicycle to the park without a helmet, and having left his wallet at home so he doesn't lose it. A cop stops him and asks where is his helmet. Man answers, I didn't want to wear one. Cop says, show me some ID. Man says, it is at home, and as far as I know, ID is not required to ride a bicycle, or be on public streets. Cop asks what my name is. I reply, Nunya. Cop says what is the last name. Man says Business. Cop arrests man for breaking no law, and tells him he was hindering a public official in his duties, and will be charged with resisting arrest if he refuses to comply with further order. Take it one step further, and the guy jumps on his bike and pedals away, the cop tazes him, ending up killing the guy when he hits his head on the curb. The official investigation shows that even though helmets are not required for adults, the death was the result of this "scofflaws" stubborn resistance.

Free people worry about what is the line the government steps over before they will use deadly force to defend themselves. Yet the government will kill you for not wearing a seat belt, carrying a drivers license, or riding a bicycle without a helmet. They will escalate any and all cases to deadly force, but we must submit when they kick down our doors at 3 AM and "get face down" or crawl to the cop in the case of the kid in shorts in an apt hallway.

THIS IS A TAG LINE...Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.
