Common sense should guide police officers to not do what they give citations for - such as drag racing - but common sense was nowhere to be found when an Alabama motorcycle cop accepted a challenge to drag race a motorcyclist. Twice. Unfortunately for the officer, the civilian rider, Lawrence Lee Spillers, recorded the whole thing on his helmet-mounted GoPro camera and posted the video to YouTube, which went viral and caused the officer to resign before he was fired.

Riding a motorcycle through high traffic can be a stressful experience. And we don't even want to imagine what it's like to have to actually pursue someone on a motorcycle. Fortunately, we don't have to. Officer Troy Gurley of the Florence, Alabama police force recently attempted to stop a vehicle for traffic violations. The driver, 24-year-old Justin Sanders, figured he could use his Mazda3 to outrun the bike cop. Turns out, not so much.
