Maybe that wasn't the best road for picking on truckers,

All they had to do was light the thugs' car on fire after they rolled it and this would have been a perfect video.

Seems the bit where the car slammed on brakes in front of the truck to play the injury-lawsuit game was missing.

Some friends of mine just moved back from Russia after a very disheartening attempt at moving out there. They said the culture of graft and extortion was just too much for them. Even using the bank was a lesson in bribes and kickbacks. Just to have access to an ATM, secure lock box, business checking account, etc, they said it was expected that some sort of grease was needed. They finally gave up and came back to the states.

The guys tried to extort money out of the truck driver as he was changing a tire.

I know a guy who went there with his wife to adopt a baby. By the time it was over, it cost them forty thousand to get out of the country with their baby and their asses. They were arrested twice, for nothing - these are as straight arrows as they come - shaken down by the adoption agency and even baggage handlers - "Want your luggage rich American?"

I was in Mexico once, on the way to a remote fishing camp, and we come across a six or seven year old boy standing in the road with his arms stretched out to the side. As we got closer we could see he was handcuffed to chains that stretched to trees on either side of the road. ie, no passing unless you pay or run him over. The lady who took the "toll" was wearing all sorts of designer clothes and the kid looked as though he hadn't eaten in a week. Farking pigs.

Mess with the bull, get the horns...and get your car tipped over and rolled into a ditch.

I wonder how many of those Range Rovers that rolled by on the back of that truck near the end of the line were stolen? "Justice" is served?

Were they threatening the guy? Seems like this could be solved by having a fire axe or a gun in your truck.

If these thieves were true gangsters they would have struck a deal with the drivers before the robbery. "Let us rob your truck and you'll get a cut. Oppose us and we'll fark you up bad."

I read that as exhibitionists and was seriously disappointed.

Beware.

Not, saying I would ever extort anyone, but once that rig pulled in front of me, blocking all exits, I would have known I was in for a beating and just hightailed it into the woods.

Meh. Another fake viral video about Russian highways produced by the US Chamber of Commerce and NHTSA. This is all about increasing regulation, and police on our highways.

Wakeup sheeple.

You really shouldn't fark with a Russian, especially in Russia, even if you yourself are Russian, otherwise you're just russian to get yourself Russian'd.
 
2012-09-20 04:06:16 PM  
I read that as contortionists and then saw Russia and then thought "See you in the Russian f*ck pit"

but damn, not true...so this post is dumb.

That damn movie scared the hell out of me when I was about 5 years old. I found out years later it was an early Spielberg movie.

Every video, every news article I see out of Russia just convinces me further to not go to Russia.

Normally I would biatch about not posting the original YouTube video, however: "This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy prohibiting content designed to harass, bully or threaten. Sorry about that.

An original video is often the best place to find out what is going on. For this case you can find an explanation and translation at Reddit.
