    " I don't care my son was intimidating, spiking tires, and other road rage/gang like behavior and the driver of the SUV fled in his and families defense, he should be charged because my son got injured due to my sons actions!"

    Bikers got what they deserved after an accident which appears to be the bikers fault anyway( cut the SUV off and immediately braking which didn't leave the SUV driver enough room to react). If I was in that situation and the bikers were attacking my car, I would get out of there as well especially with my loved ones in the vehicle as well.

    Gotta love the wife of the injured biker trying to blame the guy in the Land Rover who was attacked by the bikers. Charge him with reckless endangerment? What a joke. He's hurt because of his own stupid decision. Tough ****.


    Every one of those bikers should be charged with felony assault, disorderly conduct, destruction of property, and reckless driving for chasing the guy. I bet there's more that could be tacked on too.

    I watched the video this morning and had the opposite reaction.

    No biker in that video "deserved" to be run down.

    They were the instigators of the whole thing.
    What would you do if you had a couple dozen bikers speeding after you, damaging your car, trying to open your door? I say they should be thankful he didn't run over more of them, because I believe he was perfectly in the right to do so.
    You can't take over a whole road just because you want to ride your motorcycles. It doesn't work like that. Other people have to use those roads too.

    RUN ME OVER RUN ME OVER
    OMG HE RAN ME OVER LETS GET HIM

    I was generalizing a bit.

    If some of the injured simply stopped and observing then they didn't deserve it. But, for those who were intimidating the guy, spiking his tires, damaging his car, etc did deserve it. It's like a thief breaking into someone else's home and getting shot. I'm not going to have sympathy for the thief being shot dead......

    The video didn't show what was going on fully. All that can be seen was the initial accident and all of a sudden the Range Rover getting the hell out of there.

    A lot of people don't agree with you. In response to citizenzen.

    In that scenario, and I was being followed by bikers who had cut me off and having road rage with a family in my car, I would have doen whatever was necessary for their safety

    I am a motocrycle rider as well but this is uncalled for

    The short clip leads me to believe this is a bunch of bikers thinking they own the road and being jerks.

    From what I recall from my viewing this morning, the bikers sped after him and damaged his car (and beat him) after he'd run over some of them and drove away.

    I am in no way endorsing the bikers behavior. IMO, they could have used their video and his license number and taken that to the cops without the chase and beating.

    However, I don't see the driver of the SUV as blameless. He did run over the bikers and left the scene. What could possibly have justified that?

    It's more clear in the second article. After he original stopped, the gang surrounded his suv and attacked it, slashing at the tires and bashing it with their helmets. He then took of probably fearing for his family's safety. I think that is more than enough justification.

    I ride as well.

    In the SUV drivers side of things, I would have called the state police, and just kept going until the Police showed up.

    There is no way for bikes to stop a Range Rover uneless some of the bikers feel like being run over.

    They're a thug biker gang that goes around doing stunts on the streets and trying to "take back the highways" without any regard for the safety of the public.

    One of the bikers cut him off and jacked up on his brakes trying to get the SUV to stop in a "brake check" maneuver, basically trying to cause an accident. The SUV obviously couldn't stop in time and got bumped.

    The guy in the SUV pulled over and stopped and then the biker and his buddies surrounded the car and started beating on his car. The guy had his wife and daughter in the car. He no doubt felt threatened as any normal person would do when being surrounded by a reckless gang of thug bikers. He then drove off to try to get away from being attacked.

    The only reason why he stopped after fleeing was because his tires were punctured and were flat.

    If that's the way it went down, then I have more sympathy for him.

    True, he also failed to call the police as I understand. I would have called the police personally, and if my tires went flat, put that bitch in 4WD and floor it. It'll still go.

    Not biker gangs or anything, but I do carry two handguns + ammo in my glovebox, so if I were in this situation, it would have been solved quickly. And I would have been uninjured.

    Though I would never want it to come to t hat, I would just call the police.

    Karma's a bitch. They had it coming, I would've done the same thing if I were in the Land Rover.

    The bikers are just lucky the guy in the car didn't have a gun, he would have been perfectly within his rights to shoot them too.

    So what would you have done? Wife and kid in the car and you're being attacked and threatened by a group of literally hundreds of people.

    These bikers are *******s, every weekend they roll around Harlem pulling stunts which endanger everyone, and causing and ungodly amount of noise.

    ----------

    Not even close, these *******s pull this **** almost every weekend (though on a smaller scale).

    I'm going to reserve my judgment, cause it seems nobody knows what really happened and the video doesn't show beginning to end. IMO so far ..... I think both are at fault.

    Being that said .........

    As a rider myself, it takes all of my will power not to kick someone's ass when a driver puts my life in danger, and I ride mild compared to these guys you see on Youtube. Non riders wouldn't understand and are quick to assume everything is a motorbiker's fault.


    Also, those who think a gun would solve anything. I know personally that some bikers who ride in groups carry guns, and some groups are just plain lawless and don't give a damn. Don't be stupid and think you can shoot your way out of a situation, cause you don't want to receive what you are dishing out.

    my thoughts exactly, not sure where someone was run over in the vid? bumped maybe and then ok keep it moving they were slowing traffic down and they surrounded the vehicle, second scene one of them tried to open the car door? really and last one smashed the window I would've ran them all over with no remorse thugs .... the driver should've called the cops , one on one no problem but there are like 50 of them
