Please explain what happened

I'm riding home from class. I got onto the on ramp to get onto interstate. I'm in the right lane and everyone is doing about 30 so I pull into the left and speed up to the posted 50. I get to the end of the on ramp were the merger is and I go to slip into a decent size hole between an Impala and a suburban. As I'm moving in I hear a siren and instinctivly slow and pull to the break down. The siren then stops. The Impala then rolls past me with the widow down and a guy pointing at me mouthing out "You!". At this point I figure its an unmarked cop so I stop and wait for him to stop but he keeps on going. So I get back onto the road and keep going. As I get onto the interstate I see the cop moving along the road, and unfortunatly, I end up behind him. I'm stuck behind him for a ways until the next exit were anouther lane is added and I get into it and just keep going. The traffic is pretty heavy so we aren't going far. I keep going for a ways and he keeps moving around to stay in sight of me. My lane ends up moving faster than his and as I am moving past him he hits the siren again then turns it off. I just kept going. He kept following me for a while so I slowed down and let him pass, then he would slow down so I didn't get far behind. At this point I;m doing 10 under the speed limit with him one lane over from me. He keeps this up for anouther 15 miles, as cars are passing me doing 85 and 90, and then finally speeds up and moves on. (I did my best to stay out of his sight). But what the hell was going on?!?! Was he just mad because I tried to merge into his lane? WTF! I'm having bad luck with cops lately.

Without trying to sound like a 16yo, may I repeat...

FUCK THE POLICE!

You shouldn't have worried about it. I would have just gone the speed limit,and if the stupid ass wanted to pull me over, let him. I would have been happy to argue with him and make him look like an asshole in court.

Unfortunately, he probably just has a hard-on for bikes. At least you didn't get pulled over.

Yep, his old lady probably cheated on him with a biker, so he feels inferior,and has to be a dick... who knows, obviously has some sort of complex, screw him, atleast he didnt bag you. Hey maybe he has a bike and was just messin with you to break up his day and get a laugh, never know.

Its rare I get pissed off while riding, unless I'm in traffic, but man did he piss me off. I was so tempted to just flick him off and roll on past but I knew he woulda done something then. Man it just chapped my ass though. Thanks for confimiing that it wasn't me.

A good % of cops have a GED or less (this excludes detectives who do actual work).

In FL you are required to have your AA or equivilent atleast to be a cop. Why? I dont know. But its a requirment. I've looked into law enforcement as a career oportunity, but dont worry I would be one of the nice cops and let ya off real easy if I even did anything
