Abstract: The law enforcement is behaving as usual in the all out war on "Bikers"

Hi Bruce,

As a concerned ABATE of Minnesota officer, I'd like to see if you could spread the word for us about this infringement of our rights both as riders and as Americans. Thanks, Stan "Stash" Rygh ABATE of Minn. Lower Corner Chapter

Subject: Possible Sting on I90 in MN - heading for Sturgis Aug 1 - Aug 5

Date: Tue, 24 Jul 2007 10:53:15 -0500 (GMT-05:00)

This is a heads up on a possible problem. Spread the word, and please contact Frank Ernst if you have problems.


I have heard information indicating law enforcement may be conducting a planned stop (sting sounds right) on interstate Highway #90 in Martin county. The areas I believe will be affected are interstate highway #90 and entrances and exits from interstate #90 between exit #87 Sherburn and exit #107 Imogene. This includes exit #93 Welcome, exit #99 and #102 Fairmont.

The dates I expect this action to take place are from August 1st to August 5th, 2007. This is a time period I would expect heavy volumes of motorists (read motorcyclists) traveling to Sturgis SD.

I believe the plan is to stop those that exhibit any suspicious behavior or appearance (like riding a motorcycle) for further investigation. If you plan to make the trip to Sturgis on interstate #90 you may want to avoid these exits. I expect you might encounter unnecessary delays due to these planned activities.

Request for Information

Were you stopped by law enforcement while riding a motorcycle on interstate highway #90 in Martin County MN between exit #87 Sherburne and exit #107 Imogene? If so, I need your help. Please send me any information you can on the stop.

Agency(s) making the stop and officer name(s) badge number(s)?

Date and time of stop?

Duration of stop and how long were you detained, time of stop to time of release?

Result of stop and citations or other actions?

Names and contact information of any witnesses? (this is very important) Please include any other information you feel may be significant.

"The battle for bikers' rights is not about patches, parties or poker runs. We fight to protect the freedom and promote the interests of American motorcyclists ... to defend our right to choose our own modes of transportation, attire and lifestyle ... to deter and defy discrimination against us ... and to vanquish those who violate our rights or right-of-way."--Bruce Arnold
