Wow, 30 to 1 and you WOULDN'T panic? Certified badass!

:20 the biker pulls into the rovers lane and looks like he is talking to driver even though window is up. Then the biker hits his breaks at :27. At :30 you can see he does not fall. At :40 they have driver boxed in. Couple choice words maybe some reasoning going on until :50 where driver pushes bikes blocking him over and drives over.

There is more going on before this video maybe even a call to 911.

I am guessing he turned into the path of one of the bikers or pushed them over into the other lane not looking for them before merging. Something that happens every day and deserves a scorned look or a few words. But, nothing like what these A holes did.

Oh, and this part is totally screwed.
Dayana Mieses told the station that her husband has injuries to his heart, lungs and ribs and that he is paralyzed from the waist down.

I agree with the post about driving to a police station. That is what I would have done in this scenario after :50. I doubt he would not have passed a police station in "50 blocks" and most GPS have a police station/hospital option. Either would have worked to get away from this group.

I don't care what he did. It is just a freaking bike and not worth someones ability to walk.

For some reason shit escalated. Maybe a weapon pulled or angry mob fright or Douchy driver thinking they could just leave.

I'm not saying either biker or diver is at fault or innocent. Not my job to decide that. I just naturally dislike both crotch riders and Rover drivers.

Don't be scared to read the article that was linked to this thread with most of these details in it.

I thought it looked like the bikers were already converging around the SUV as the video started. It would be interesting to see what was going on in the couple of minutes immediately before the posted portion of the video.

Probably out there somewhere with the missing 18 minutes of Nixon's White House tapes.

Yep, your right I read that wrong. Rover driver just got his butt handed to him.

It took me 13 views to see it. At :53 you can see the biker laying on the ground who was just run over.

I change my opinion driver deserved the butt kicking and charges tossed at him. Billy bad butt should have had the common sense to not block a suv using a bike while his buddies threatened the driver.

As a biker I would have not let the group's aggression escalate to the point where we were blocking traffic and a driver felt the need to hit the gas to get away.

As the driver I would have moved into the right lane, and pulled over driving to a police station if I seen the groups aggression was escalating. I would have also hit my breaks as soon as I seen the chance of one of them break checking me.

Of course it is easy to say this stuff after the fact without all the facts.

And how would you accomplish this without knocking one of the 30+ bikes stopped around you? Or even before stopping, just swarming around you? Any way I see this, some bikes were going down.

Ridiculous. When riding, I suck it up when anyone treats me like crap and they have a vehicle larger than mine. I flipped a guy off while on the bike the other day, immediately regretted it. Mainly because I had no idea what he was going to do next. Luckily, he did nothing.

[QUOTE=L4CX;3511005]You carry 30+ bullets with you?

27, 17 + 10 Ruger 9MM, but I do not think it would have taken that many to ease the tension of the situation and disperse the bikers.

Call me crazy but unless someone was sticking a gun I'm my face or something life threatening. I would have a hard time committing possible manslaughter by running people over.
