"rolling coal"

So the bicyclists were black?

Eventually.

"The driver of the pickup truck has been identified as a 16-year-old boy. According to Ferrell, the teen stayed at the scene and met with police after hitting the cyclists."

Already a waste of humanity.

As of Saturday evening, the driver of the pickup truck had not been arrested.

And never will be, because this is officially sanctioned behavior.

Probably related to someone "important". Maybe a cop, sheriff, mayor, big businessman. That's small towns for ya.

The driver has been identified as Ethan Couch's cousin, Eddie Sofa King Stupid.

Roughly 75 miles into their training ride, Ferrell says a black diesel pickup truck slowed down near him and accelerated to blow smoke in his lane.  Moments later, the pickup trick tried doing the same thing to other cyclists riding ahead of Ferrell.
"The reason he couldn't stop is because he was accelerating to blow more diesel fuel on these cyclists," said Ferrell.  "He ended up hitting 3 people before his brakes even started."


That's murder, my friends. Maybe not first degree, but that's murder. At the very, VERY, least, negligent homicide.

Assault with a deadly weapon.

And if not, he's a smart, God-fearing child who made a mistake. You wouldn't want a simple mistake to get in the way of this kid's bright future.

Still. It's attempted negligent homicide. Along with reckless endangerment.  And a dozen other traffic statutes.

The fact that he repeated the act twice indicates  clear intent to inflict harm on others.

He should do time along with community service and lose his license for a decade.

Plus, it's Texas, where they probably lump cyclists in with Libruls and other game species where it's always open season and no bag limit.

Every single one of those cyclists should sue that little punk (and his parents if needed) to smithereens... after he is charged criminally.

I don't think you can attempt negligent homicide, as it's negligence, not intention.  No intention to commit bodily harm or worse.

I've always wondered what a well placed m80 would do inside one of those stacks. Would it ignite or just blow or remain inert?

I'm a cyclist and live in a town where 5 cyclists were murdered by a extremely drugged driver. He got 40-75 years and hopefully will die in prison. He was a dirtbag to begin with. Too bad this POS is only 16. I'd love to see him tried as an adult.

I believe that also gets him an "Assault with a deadly weapon" charge when it involves striking someone with a vehicle.

There was commercial where a judge bangs the gavel, a kid says 'sorry' to his parents and the other attorney says "we'll start recording assets to size, home, savings, college funds...". I don't know how the commercial ends.  I think they went to Chucky Cheese but I'd like that first part to happen to the kid and his parents.

And I wonder if he was able to "blow coal" which emission devices on the truck were defeated or modified that will result in fines from the EPA in the amounts of tens of thousands of dollars?

I'm not in the market for a pickup truck, but I do have to wonder: is it even possible anymore to get one with a grill that *doesn't* look like it's designed to be as overcompensatingly-macho as possible? It seems like every new truck I see these days has the most ugly, imposing, just-plain-ludicrous grill you can imagine, and if I actually needed a truck for something practical rather than as a multi-ton penis enhancer that would annoy the sh*t out of me.
