EmmaLou: This is the most absurd situation I've heard. Riding a damned bike around the world, riding into some of the most dangerous territory on earth, having a 11 guards snipered off and then continuing like it's no thing after mentioning that you fell off your bike and were slightly injured? What the bloody hell is this?
zimbomba63: Or it could have been his smug expression, as he rode by on his fixie, after telling them he was headed for counties they had probably never heard of. They really hate hipsters over there.
fusillade762: cman: fusillade762: Police say they do not know why Mr Colorado was cycling through such a dangerous area.I'm going with "He's an idiot".Do you say the same to rape victims?If you are gonna blame the victim in this case might as well go all outIf a woman decided to unnecessarily enter a neighborhood where rapes were very common despite the fact that police felt the need to send TWELVE armed guards along with her I might.
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: fusillade762: Police say they do not know why Mr Colorado was cycling through such a dangerous area.I'm going with "He's an idiot".There seems to be a lot of people that do this sort of stupid thing. I can only guess that they're trust fund babies of some sort.
cman: Its probably safer than Mexico
JoelWhy: Cyclist Javier Colorado was slightly hurt after falling off his bike.Oh, the humanity!!!
legion_of_doo: But they're European! Why would anyone attack them? They're not even American!
orclover: cman: Its probably safer than MexicoEhhhhh bout the same as Mexico City. For the rest of Mexico a western Tourist is probably actually safer from all reports. You just have to know the new rules and know what to do when the cartels are making their sweeps. The cartels by and large arnt looking for anglo tourist minding their own business, they will hold you at gun point and rifle through all your crap, ignore your money and as long as your not transporting guns or drugs or show any sign of being a rival gang member let you go on your merry way. No, really. I mean yea it sucks but they are not killing tourist whole sale down there every chance they get, people are just getting in the way of their little civil war is all.Mexico City however? Yea fark that place, be safer in Beirut. Showing up there white is like wearing a "Please kidnap me" sign.My neighbores went to pakistan every few months to visit family for years until yea before last. When they got back from that trip they said "never again", too farking crazy, too political. Everybody they knew were telling them that since they had American connections to stay the fark away or they might get killed. "Pakistan will be Afghanistan in a few decades". Wonder how India will like that.
spawn73: legion_of_doo: But they're European! Why would anyone attack them? They're not even American!If the guards had went alone, they would still have been killed.I'm guessing this is why they even attempted this. They can't admit that their country is so farked up that there's parts of it where 12 armed guards can't enter without half of them being killed.
stuffy: If your that stupid, you really shouldn't reproduce anyway.
