Alabama Confederation of Motorcycle Clubs

---------------------------

New clubs and organizations, as well as current members, should note that we now have THREE COC Liaisons.  Any questions or concerns about protocol, organizing a club or group, etc., should be directed to them.

A reminder to all that in addition to standing for all bikers in pursuing complaints of harassment and discrimination, the COC is also the forum, through the officers, for clubs to sit down and resolve differences before they get out of hand.

 

NEXT MEETING........

Our next meeting will be held in Cullman, AL on September 9, 2017

T he meeting will start at 1:00 PM

New clubs, groups, etc., desiring to join the COC will be notified in advance

and should not attend unless they have been contacted.

ALL MEMBER CLUBS SHOULD PLAN ON HAVING REPRESENTATIVES PRESENT!!!

NOTE:  If you're in any kind of a situation where you need an attorney, remember to call 1-800-521-2425, and tell the operator you need to get in touch with the ALABAMA AIM Attorney. We have TWO!!!

TWO IMPORTANT ITEMS:

1. If you're pulled over, get in the habit of doing what everyone else does these days: VIDEO the stop! Have someone in the group do it, or do it yourself if you're alone!  You can get an app for your phone that in some cases will forward the video directly to an organization who is monitoring law enforcement misconduct.  Check these sites out:

Cop Watch - available on iTunes

2.  Officers of the law have certain civic duties that require a higher level of protection for citizens. With a surety bond in place, they’re held financially accountable if they choose to take advantage of their power. Various federal, state and local government agencies require their law enforcement officers to be bonded so that those harmed by wrongful acts have the ability to collect damagesIf an officer of the law chooses to misuse his or her power, harmed parties can file a claim against the bond to recover losses.  If the claim is validated, then the surety underwriter will reimburse the obligee. The surety will then require the officer to repay it for any claims paid out!!

Very few of the public are aware of this!!

So, remember to be polite, but at some point during the stop, ask for the officer's name, badge number, and "Bonding Agent's phone number".

If you know anyone who rides a sport bike (what we used to call 'crotch rockets'), please give them the information below.  It's important that they become part of the AIM/NCOM/COC family to ensure their rights are protected.  They are the ones getting hassled most now on the streets - and they generally don't know there's a network of attorneys who can help them!
