Black Bike Week: Is A Crackdown Coming?

… GRAND STRAND IMPOSES “DE FACTO MARTIAL LAW”

|| By FITSNEWS || Against the wishes of S.C. governor Nikki Haley, the annual Atlantic Beach Bikefest is set to begin on May 22 … and officials on the Grand Strand are bracing for the worst.  In addition to imposing what one critic referred to as “de facto martial law,” officials have also set up a 23-mile “traffic loop” in an effort to prevent “parking lot parties.”

The loop – which wasn’t implemented for this week’s “white biker weekend” – is just one part of the response effort, though.

Grand Strand authorities plan on cracking down on the parties they claim led to last year’s violence via some broadly worded new ordinances.

“Impromptu parties, with or without alcohol, are illegal on both public and private property,” the city of Myrtle Beach, S.C. stated on its bikefest website.

Wait … what?  That sounds a lot like overreach to us …

Additionally, “excessive noise, including noise created by loud music, revving engines and spinning tires” is also banned.  Individuals who violate either of these ordinances – or the prohibition against consuming alcohol in a parking lot – could face up to thirty days in jail.

Oh, and police say they plan on enforcing the state’s helmet law – as well as a 1:00 to 6:00 a.m. EDT curfew on juveniles.

One observer referred to the weekend as a looming “traffic ticketfest and motorcycle citationfest.”

Before we get to the question of safety, how much is all this “enhanced enforcement” costing taxpayers?  Well the orange cones for the new traffic loop cost the city of Myrtle Beach a cool $1 million, while the added law enforcement presence on the streets is expected to run as much as $2 million.

How are they paying for it?

City officials received permission from state lawmakers to redirect accommodations tax revenue to the effort, and they’re using a recently approved property tax increase to fund some of the “enhanced enforcement.”

But that’s not all.  Even more money – an estimated $800,000 – is being spent on new street cameras, while another $150,000 is going toward an Orwellian “surveillance tower.”

Crazy, isn’t it?

These coastal governments shell out millions on “tourism marketing” each year – only to raise taxes when it comes time to perform the core function of law enforcement?   That’s sad.

State taxpayers are on the hook for “black bike week,” too, as an estimated 400 state police officers will be supplementing the 224 Myrtle Beach city officers and hundreds of other police (from Horry County, neighboring municipalities and out-of-state jurisdictions) expected to be on the streets.

Here’s our question, though …

Is this planned police crackdown going to quell violence … or incite it?

It seems reasonable to assume expanded regulation (and promises of stricter enforcement) will lead to more confrontations between bikers and police.  Oh, and last time we checked none of the state, county or municipal law enforcement agencies charged with policing this event required the use of body cameras on their officers.

Yeah …

What could possibly go wrong?

Look: We’re not condoning the violence that has transpired at previous black bike events.  Nor are we questioning the need for law enforcement to step up its efforts to protect life, liberty and property on the coast next weekend.  We are, however, questioning the wording of some of these new ordinances – and the ongoing subsidization of tourism marketing at the expense of law enforcement (with taxpayers being handed a growing bill for this glaring lack of prioritization).

This is the first black bike week since Ferguson.  Since North Charleston.  And since Baltimore.

Hopefully the “crackdown” doesn’t create a backlash …

The Harley riders also did not rack up numbers like this:

And this is in addition to the other behavior you just noted.
Law enforcement and the local and state government would not be doing their jobs if they did not anticipate the possibility of violence.

The three people that were murdered during Bike week last year were all native to Myrtle Beach / South Carolina. The people attending Bike Week are not driving 6,7,8+ hours to shoot people and commit crime. They are driving down to have a good time.

Honestly, I had no idea how bad racism still was until I read some of these comments. These new laws and rule changes are nothing more than an attempt to make it easier to arrest people.

I also find it egregious that this ridiculous traffic pattern and street blockages were not in effect for last weeks “Harley Fest” (aka White Bike Week).

I hope every one attending Bike Week this coming weekend stays safe, and I’d personally be in favor of boycotting Myrtle Beach. If they want to create laws that exist solely to control and harass black people, then they don’t need any tourism revenue from black people. Let the city turn into Atlantic City of the South.

rb1725 May 22, 2015 at 3:10 am

You are an idiot. Black people need realize that we do not hate them because of the color of their skin. We hate them because the majority of them behave like savages. Everywhere Black’s go violence and destruction inevitably follows. Just look at Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Ferguson, Newark, and Detroit. What do Black’s contribute to America to make up for the destruction they cause?

Anthony Whitehead May 22, 2015 at 3:31 am

Thanks for calling me an idiot for simply having a discussion with you. I appreciate the class and respect you attempted to display.

I also appreciate the fact that you are an admitted racist based off the fact that you said “WE HATE THEM BECAUSE..”

No further commentary is needed. Have a good day sir. I pray that you and your family receive countless blessings and perhaps one day can overcome your ignorant mentality.

I’ve been to both and I would say they’re about even in disgusting behavior. During white bike week a few years back we drove up to the hotel and a group of drunken “bikers” we’re standing in circle beating up a drunker “biker chick”. Called the MB police but they were too busy to come. Next evening went down to the jacuzzi about 7pm and there was a fat ol guy with his jeans pulled down and his fat bitch riding him. Needles to say the jacuzzi was off limits after that.

What could possibly go wrong? These folks have history and a reputation of acting with the utmost decorum whenever in public and gathered in large groups. Perhaps the ban on alcohol in parking lots is a misguided attempt to keep these “folks” from ruining their stellar reputation?

To think that law enforcement would not want these “folks” to gather in mass and enjoy a nice cool beverage is ridiculous! The theory that being able to somewhat “contain” a outbreak of violence is ridiculous. Damn Cops! We pay them good money from our hard earned tax dollars. Being shot and beaten to death is just “another day at work” and is an expectation of the job. And after all, business owners have insurance to replace their destroyed property!

Back when I was a teenager in the 80’s, living in Southern California-I decided once to go the Spring Break in Palm Springs.

Back at that time, it was a “big deal”, and I was only 16 and relatively naive.

I had a great time, though it was crazy…even got into a small(harmless) fight.

Here’s the thing though, Sonny Bono had just been elected as mayor of Palm Springs and a major platform of his at the time was getting rid of the Spring Break draw.

I was there the first year he enacted what was called on the street the “Bono Bonus”, which was basically cops harassing anyone/everyone for ANYTHING.

When the code of laws is as thick as a Bible, stretching back a hundred years, everyone is pretty much violating one of them at any given time. I can’t remember how many tickets I received for jay walking(which everyone was doing during Spring Break), but back then society in general wasn’t as Nazi oriented and I purposely didn’t carry ID so my name was “Tom McLaren” for the day and the upstanding members of the Palm Springs PD dutifully wrote their tickets to my evil twin(who happened to love McLaren sports cars as much as myself).

Anyway, Bono succeeded in making Spring Break in Palm Springs an unpleasant event for teenagers/young adults.

Fast forward to today….where the community has been trying to foster the return of Spring Break to Palm Springs(with moderate success)…just under more mutually acceptable terms.

I don’t know what my little story means…I just decided to share it because it seemed just a little pertinent. Perhaps there’s a small lesson there.

Wrong…Body cameras will be used and all are in place. You may want to read some articles that actually have facts. Is this costing us a bundle? You bet it is!! Why, because of the disaster of last year. I am not talking about the shootings of those from out of town either. And I really wish everyone would get that straight..those involved in the shootings were not ‘locals’. Everyone knows the chaos this created last year…I had to be walked out of a store as it was blocked by many ‘individuals’ bending over having their butts smacked, blocking the door!! The litter on Ocean Blvd. after the bikers left town was absolutely disgraceful. Another point raised..No loop for Harley Week..NOT NEEDED… as there are not 300,000-500,000 bikers. Traffic was unbearable last Memorial Day..thus the ‘Loop’……Maybe those of us living near the beach will actually get some sleep with the Loop in place. And what really aggravates about your article is your referring to the Ferguson, North Carolina and Baltimore events…WE, blacks and whites are already fearful of this..Money for extra police, cameras, etc?? Yes!! This is why:We anticipate an excuse for trouble…..I have been advised already, not to go to the stores or drive unless absolutely necessary Memorial Weekend. That advise came from a black manager of a local store and my buddy..a black taxi driver that helps all of us in our community. White, green, purple, black…when you have this large of a gathering, trouble will occur…always has and always will. Wouldn’t it be great if the laws were followed and everyone respected themselves and others? Maybe there will be a time when this does not have to be such a negative event…maybe it can start this year.

Sadly, the days of respect and consideration are gone…long gone.

I’m white, and frankly, I don’t give a crap what color the next person is, what color the president is, or what color the majority of bikers are on any given weekend. We’re all Americans, yet for some reason far too many refuse to accept that. And I’m sorry to say, but it appears (from media reporting–sorry, that’s all I have to go on) that it is minority Americans who are the most vocal about the racial divides. I desperately want to be color-blind in EVERYTHING I see and do. But it is really hard when people of many diverse groups continually act out their negative stereotypes. I praise diversity, heritage, and pride. I also praise the ability to see past it and BECOME an American.

It’s sad and true. Businesses actually get in trouble if they want to close down for that week.

Even the black citizens that live there don’t want it.

Well, let’s see….

“White” Biker Week has few lewd displays, very little violence, it results in few arrests, and businesses are patronized fairly, and they welcome the business.

“Black” Biker Week has rampant lewd displays, lots of violence, results in many arrests, and businesses are scared to ripped off, stolen from, and defrauded, and they want to close, but legally can’t.

So yes, it is a race issue, because frankly, it the issue is race.

That just shows that all the NAACP is worried about is getting their way and is a corrupt organization. And no I am not white I am a black citizen of MB that is disgusted by my race.

First off bikefest needs to be banned altogether it costs those of us who live here & It’s not a Myrtle Beach event it’s an Atlantic Beach event & they should have to pay for what it costs Myrtle Beach, the least Atlantic Beach could do but won’t is reimburse us. Secondly our annual crime rate more than doubles over the course of black bike week! & last but not least it gives the biggest group of racist the opportunities to violate the rights of business owners & other citizens with bogus lawsuits if the business owner wants to close for that week It’s their choice & that group is the naacp & apparently It’s OK to be racist make racist & antisemetic statements as long as your black!
