Somebody needs to explain to her that he put himself in that position acting like an asshat...


Maybe there really is such a thing as karma....

Have you seen the Facebook page they set up for the injured thug? https://www.facebook.com/pages/Justi...11664345601619

I'm going to say right now that the parallel between this and the Treyvon Martin case is clear. It really don't matter what happened to get them into the position. Once a person has a reasonable fear for their life, they are allowed to defend themselves. The RR driver was clearly acting in self defense and clearly had a reason to fear for his life. A gang of bikers was hitting his SUV and slashing tires. Even if the driver had participated in a road rage incident (which is not being alleged at this point), at the point where knives and helmets are being used as weapons, he is allowed to defend himself with deadly force. Even in New York.

Do you spose that only one of those squids had a helmet cam?

I just love those who supply their own video evidence for conviction.

Folks just don't understand, video, gps records, cell phone logs, all of that neat electronic wizardry can and will be used against you in court.............

The video I saw showed a crowd of bikes blocking and stopping all the lanes of the highway. The Rover driver got pissed and rolled over and smashed at least one bike before taking off. The rest of the video was the attempt by the horde of bikes to make him stop. It's not okay they went as far as they did with the assault, but the driver of the Rover asked for it!

Then you missed the first part of the video where the bikers are surrounding the RR and one guy is clearly yelling at the driver. That rider then cuts in front, looks back and rapidly decelerates and his bumped. The driver stops and in short order more than a dozen bikers converge on him. According to news reports, his tires are slashed and helmets are slammed into the SUV. That is where you then saw him roll over and smash his way free. I don't think "pissed" is the emotion he was experiencing at the moment.

How can you think that, he didn't start it and he was fleeing for his and his families life.

I think you need to look at the video again.

It doesn't look like that FB page is going quite the way they hoped. It's like a JM post gone horribly awry.

I guess you weren't paying close enough attention to notice that while they (the sqids) had all traffic stopped (and the RR boxed in) the first time, some of the gang got off their bikes, approached the car and tried to open the driver's door.

These assholes just put targets on the backs of lots of bikers who ride together ... and happen to make a judgement error while riding in traffic.
