$257 fucking dollars. TWOOOO HUNDRED! FIFTY SEVEN!!!!! DOLLARS!!!!!!! The police got me. They got me good. I was a NAUGHTY, NAUGHTY boy. I did wrong. Good thing they threw me in handcuffs at the time. I'm a convict! Is there an officer on wackbag that can anonymously tell me what the deal is with this shit? Story: Riding my bicycle across campus, a campus policeman stepped in front of me telling me to walk my bike. I went around him. He calls his buddy on a motorcycle.... I'm busted. I'm in cuffs, asking them to lock my bike up before they put me in jail. (I've dumped more money into my bike than most do on their first car.) I could have gotten an "Evading police" ticket, which I understand..... but the cop knew my employer and he "let me go" with a "RIDING MY BIKE WITH EARPHONES." I'm thinkin, oh hell yeah! I could pay that with my spare change. HA! Like I said..... $257 fucking dollars for riding my bike with earphones. Listening to Opie and Anthony none the less. I literally have no option but to fight the price of this ticket. It just seems like extortion, and I don't have an extra $257 just laying around. Aren't speeding tickets like $120? Cars can go 90 mph in a 65, but I can't ride my bike and listen to OnA at the same time. And if I do, I pay twice the cost. FUCK YOU UC BERKELEY POLICE! What should I do? I've been in trouble with the law and have always fully accepted responsibility, but I feel like I HAVE to fight this... just to afford it. Should I accept the warrant and not pay? I drive MAYBE 25 times a year. Getting pulled over on a bicycle is 1 in a million.
