Those motorcyclists were acting like d-bags. No wonder the Range Rover driver panicked.

Seriously, fark them.

Why the hell did those bikes clog up all the lanes?  Ole boy braked in front of the SUV to make him hit him, on purpose.  Were they just trying to get reaction and then outraged when they succeeded?

With between 30 motorcycles (cops) or 100s (subby) and I'm in a range rover with my wife and daughter who are pissed with me and AFTER they have pounded on the rear windows where my daughter is sitting?

Damn right I'd run them over.

I'd let the wife talk to 911 and in the meantime I'd probably side swipe every bike that pulled up along side me in my lane and threatened me in any way.
 
2013-09-30 09:31:05 PM  
I think at the point where I can't go forward and they are pounding on my windows and breaking them?

I'd be hitting reverse, making a 3 point turn, doing whatever I could to get away and not giving a shiat about anyone I saw on a motorcycle.

I think most of those assholes, including Mr. Brake Check should be thrown in jail, and I hope the cops find the asshole who made the video and make his life miserable.

No clue what happened before that made them want to box in the driver (was it him bumping into the guy who brake checked him?)

Regardless, if 50+ guys box you are with your wife and 5 month old daughter, you're damn right I'm going to run them over and do everything I can to protect my family.  It's too bad they weren't trying to get a hold of the police to meet up with them somewhere.

I don't really understand how the bikes were able to get the guy to stop...there's nothing that would have stopped me from driving in that situation (other cars be damned as well if it comes down to it).

Because he didn't want to hurt anyone, even douchebag assholes.

You can see in the video that one if the riders break checks the SUV causing the "accident". When they stop him you can see them start smashing the car and try to pull him out.

They caused the accident and threatened him and his family. He was totally justified and probably quite restrained.
 
2013-09-30 10:40:15 PM  
I hit many more than three of them and I don't forget about reverse when i get boxed in at a red, that's for damn sure. Especially with my kid in the car. I would have taken out every SINGLE motherfarker on that highway without a moments thought and i would have crimped every rider I could reach against the parked cars on the street.

That guy was the epitome of a Christian soul. I am not, squidweasels. I'm driving a weapon. You're driving a four stroke ego with plastic fairings.

Not the "bikers" I was expecting.  I ride and I will never understand the need for anyone to ride the way these idiots are.  They clog up traffic in all lanes and then get all butthurt when some cager gets in the way.  Really??

People get confused with "hit and run" and "using deadly force" for defense.

Once the assholes attacked the driver (road rage), the whole situation becomes self defense.
Everything else is off the table.

I cant wait to hear the 911 tape of this event. And see the millions of hours of video which was probably recorded.

/They are lucky that the driver was a fan of zombie movies and knew a thing or two about dealing with mindless monsters.

Can't say I would've reacted differently in the SUV with a group of dick bags behaving like this.
 
2013-09-30 11:11:20 PM  
OK I know I'm going against the groupthink here, and I'll certainly agree that there was way more than the average of douchery going around on all sides, but I think you're being way too forgiving of the Range Rover driver. The first time the guy in the Range Rover decided to try and RUN PEOPLE OVER instead of getting out and making sure the guy he hit was OK, trading insurance and waiting for police to show up to document the accident he lost any and all sympathy from me. For all he knew he killed people, and didn't give a fark. If he was scared or something (these were kids out riding sport bikes for fun, not the goddamn Hell's Angels) he should have called 911 from inside his car and parked it there, and requested an ambulance for the guy he hit. When he decided to kick the whole thing off by gunning it and plowing through a crowd of human beings for all he knew he actually killed someone. It's pretty much a miracle that he didn't.

Don't give a bullshiat excuse about how he was "just protecting his family". He endangered his family when he hit a guy and then tried to run over a bunch of OTHER guys on purpose. That no doubt infuriated everyone watching, and yeah they were going to follow him to make sure he didn't get away with it. Then he did it AGAIN. He showed an utter disregard for the lives of others and that's when he got beat up. WTF else did he think was going to happen? He turned what could have been a relatively fender bender into attempted murder and incited mob justice.

Maybe some of you expect douchey behavior from crotch rocket riders, but in my experience I see plenty of douchebaggery on the road from 30 something luxury SUV drivers.

I'm a lane-splitter.  Based on what I saw, these guys are assholes.

b2theory: timujin: I want to see the five or ten minutes before this video, before the Rover ran into the first bike and the other rider got off and walked toward him.  Why were the bikers farking with him in the first place?

Absolutely, that's what I saw in the video, the bike brake-checked and the guy tapped him.  At least, it appears he did, the camera cuts away right before so it's possible the guy stopped in time.  But what I'm wondering is what happened just before that, why did he get brake-checked in the first place?  Look, you gotta understand, from everything I see, the dudes on bikes were at fault from the start, but I also deal with assholes who will fark with you just because you're on a motorcycle and they're in a car.  And they'll do it with their kids in the car.  The same thing happens between car drivers all the time, that's not isolated to car/motorcycle confrontations.

The whole thing got outta hand.  Regardless of anything else, you can't run people over, which is attempted vehicular homicide, just because someone is walking towards your car.  You also can't chase someone down, break their window and beat the shiat out of them.  You also can't brake check right in front of someone just because you don't like the way they're driving.  Pretty much every step along this story is farked up.

I'm gonna rule everyone an asshole based on what I've seen so far.

Those are crotchrocket douchebags, not real motorcyclists.
 
2013-09-30 11:13:35 PM  
They were already boxing him in at the start of the video, which borders on (or simply is) vehicular assault. Then the one guy cuts in front of him less than 8 feet away and clearly isn't looking what the hell he's doing and lets off the throttle. The guy in the SUV has motorcycles around him everywhere he looks so it's no surprise he got bumped.

And as bad as the SUV driver's escape is, he doesn't really speed away. He just gets some distance then drives at steady traffic speeds even though the bikers are catching up to him.

So, yeah, my money says there's a 9-1-1 tape.
 
2013-09-30 11:13:57 PM  
And yeah, the motorcyclist riders were totally in the wrong for attacking him, by the way. I didn't forget that. They had the motherfarker on video for attempted murder... and with a ton of witnesses. They should have gotten his license plate, followed at a safe distance and called/flagged down police to arrest the motherfarker. Instead... they turned their dickhead level up to 11 and turned an attempted murderer into someone some people can sympathize with. Way to go, assholes.

From what I've read on other forums by people following the story, the bike riders were riding erratically and slashing tires on parked vehicles.  The SUV driver's wife called 911 and the bikers saw it, so they started harassing them.

Basically these bikers were some huge assholes.

Read my post above.  The SUV driver wasn't charged, and by the accounts I've read, the bikers started harassing them when they saw the wife call 911 on them.

The video has basically had the important first half edited out.

Arrests have been made, but the SUV driver wasn't charged.  That should be a big clue about who is really in the wrong here.

Assuming for even half a second that the guy he originally "hit" wasn't playing stop and go and caused the accident himself (which the video doesn't show, so please stop talking like you know what happened), if you honestly believe any rational person would have gotten out of their car and exchanged farking insurance information while a bunch of the bikers friends are SURROUNDING your car, you're out of your farking mind.

The driver, even if he was at fault, was well within his rights to call the police and sit locked in his car with his family until they arrived to secure the scene. Well within his rights. The bikers had no right to open the door to his car for any reason. And I assume you'd like to believe they were just wanting a civil conversation, because you've already proven yourself retarded. Grow the fark up.

The bikers are lucky more of them were not run over. They're very, very lucky that this man didn't have a gun. If it were me, the second this mob (yes, it's a mob) ripped open my car door I'd have payed Gravedigger with my nice, sturdy Range Rover and blasted out of there. If pursued, I would have run them off the road. If I had a gun, the mutant swinging his helmet at my window would have been dead.

These bikers should all be thrown in jail, and you should keep your opinions for the sandbox and let the adults have the conversation, you absolute idiot.

nope
you are jsut a moron

have you not seen a single zombie movie?
when mindless monsters surround you, you run them over. PERIOD

you are confusing an ACCIDENT with SELF DEFENSE
when the mindless zombies started attacking him, he fled in self defense
NOTICE that the police didnt charge him?
NOTICE that the police will be arresting as many of the mindless zombies as they can catch?

but go ahead and try to explain why and how the innocent driver did something "wrong"

Because they were a mob at that point.  All "brothers" against the world.

On two wheels, it becomes me against the guy in the four-wheeled cage - I'm at a disadvantage.  Get a dozen or more in your mob who feel the same vulnerability then that morphs in to a feeling of being special and perhaps "targeted" by the relatively invulnerable cagers... yeah, we're tough.  We're a bunch of squids on muthafarkin MOTORCYCLES, like Hell's Angels and everything.  You've heard of *them*, right?   Yeah, we're just like them.  Yeah, YOU, I'm talkin' YOU, Mr Cager!  WTF you doin' in my motorcycle fantasy?  I'll fark you up!

That's their thought process.

Who knows what happened before the asshole squid parked his bike in front of a moving SUV, but bull-farking-shiat, two-wheel mob degeneration happened on a large scale shortly thereafter.

Looks to me like it was happening right at the beginning of that video. Plus we conveniently cannot see what happened between the time he hit the first bike and the time he felt the need to escape at any cost. I'll bet at least one weapon became "unconcealed."

Those assholes have been doing that shiat for years. they are a huge problem in Harlem. A few years ago they were children on illegal dirt bikes and quads. Now they have the sports bikes. They are dangerous criminals and actively seek confrontation. Surrounding cars and forcing them to stop has been a game with them for a long time.
