I feel sorry for those that lost their lives.  Should have been this guy instead.

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?


Just plain rude.

Even if this moron didn't have to worry about getting kidnapped or killed, where does he think he's going to find provisions or shelter in that part of the world?

It seems like he's trying to commit suicide.

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.


Well, I bet the stories about how he almost got shot for riding his bike would go swell with his ironic Euro hipster beard!

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 out

If 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.


I'd take the analogy a bit further.

I'd say she was wearning nought but a thong, carrying a sign that says "Disease free and on the pill" walking down Rapey Luther King Jr Blvd in the city of Rapeville (which is a suburb of Rapetropolis) in the country of Rapeistan. The town spokesman was the "You gonna get raped" guy who told her "You gonna get raped"

/rape

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.


I imagine a lot of people just have a hard time imagining perfect strangers wanting to hurt them simply because they're there.

When you're in your hometown you can generally recognize the sort of derelict portions of town that may not seem safe, but you go off to some other city or country even and you may not readily recognize the signs of someone that may be dangerous.

It seems like the sort of person that probably think others are just being really cold and emotionless for not wanting to strike up a conversation with someone on the street that looks homeless, when those people may be familiar with stories of such people actually attacking others due to being insane and/or violent drug addicts.

Cyclist Javier Colorado was slightly hurt after falling off his bike.

Oh, the humanity!!!

cman: Its probably safer than Mexico


Ehhhhh 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.

It's even worst, they couldn't show the condition of his bike shorts, because it might upset more sensitive hipsters.

He'll never forget the men who died protecting him, "There was good old, what's-his-name, and the guy with the thing on his head, and the other jolly fellow, who seemed laugh every time he saw me, and..."

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.

I've been to Mexico City many times.  Never had any problems.  They don't have the cartel crime that much of the rest of the country has, just big city crime.  However there are certain neighborhoods you don't visit.

This is why no one likes escort missions.
