I looked at a few NYC news reports and a couple other video websites on the situation. The comments that were left are ridiculous. Most are from people who seem to be involved with the mc "gang." Seems like they all want the RR driver dead. One of the comments went a little something like this: pPl neEdz to respeKt uz bikerz. They doesnt not knowz that weze all gotz famz and childrenz. DIs dRiVer dZervs to DY!!

The mental retardation is strong within that group. I'm not sure when these bikers were given authority to enforce the law, but they seem to think they can do whatever they want. If you notice at the very beginning of the video you will see them all stop the RR and you can see one of them off their bike at the drivers door doing something. As far as I'm concerned that person had no right to do such a thing and the RR's actions were justified. Hell, I would have done some donuts and ridded the world of a few of these asshats.

Good old mob mentality. Another reason to ride alone, in the woods.

Most of my NYC experience is just in Manhattan. Usually walking around the Times Square area, so I'll agree with you on the exit. He was doing better on the Parkway. Hearing they pulled him from the vehicle at the end and beat him makes me sick.

Pissed

I'm pissed, I hope these thugs are in jail rotting. I can understand chasing some driver if there was a hit and run, but this is criminal.

Total scum. Trouble is, if you did have a handgun, you'd need enough rounds for each and every one of them. Then they'd probably take you to court and win. F'd up. They all need to go down.

The other thing going north on the parkway is a toll plaza, It's largely unmanned, but they may have some kind of a skeleton crew there. Perhaps some level of intimidation to the bikers.

FWIW quite a few of the bikes had no plates.

You're right. He should have carried on until they ran out of fuel. There's not a lot they can do at highway speeds.

...again...scum. All of them.

my first impression? what are these dick-head bikers doing ALL over the road and lanes? From a car driver's perspective, the bikes are all over the lanes, crossing lanes all over the place, three to four bikes per lane, bikes crowding the cars, my initial thought was these are a bunch of little boys on bicycles with no regard for other road users.

Drivers in Sri Lanka, or Bangkok or Caracas may be accustomed to this kind of traffic, but not US drivers. Two bikes side by side per lane, in your own lane is at most reasonable in tight traffic. Its confusing for car drivers with bikes swarming all around them, so something like what happened is a result of it.

You ride like dick-heads you better be ready to answer for it.

That said, the SUV driver was wrong to leave the scene, but given the numbers can you blame them? The end was flat out assault/battery.

Right of Weight. It Is and has always been the rule of the road to live by.

This was caused and is the fault of some of the arrogant pissant riders.


The guy that broke out the window would be dead if he did that to just about anyone I know. That is easily an imminent defense of life scenario.

That would have been the best option. Also I wonder if anyone in the SUV had called 911? Seems like it went on, an awfully long time with no PO PO's present. I also wonder why they singled him out? Did something happen before the camera started rolling?

Well. at least the driver survived, if he had killed the guy who broke the window, I doubt it. If the SUV driver can carry, so can the guys on the bikes. Considering the level of animosity and the broken limbs and bikes involved, I'm surprised the SUV driver escaped with as little "reported" damage as he did.
