AM: Cops Can’t Profile Motorcyclists

Motorcylcle club members and other supporters gather on the steps of the Capitol in Olympia, Wash., Wednesday, after they attended a bill signing with Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire as she signed a bill prohibiting law enforcement officials from profiling motorcyclists for sporting club colors or logos. The group, which wasn't screened or invited by the Governor's office, included Robert Christopher, sixth from left, a biker who was convicted of killing Portland, Ore., police officer David Crowther during a drug raid in 1979, but was soon released from prison due to police misconduct in his case.
