This is what can happen when you live in a no firearm city, you have NO protection, a .45 placed on the dash may have cooled the situation off. Although CAR versus motorcycle can be a very effective weapon. I understand the riders were in the wrong, being rowdy all day, & are "being sought by police".
Where is the civility? We don't ask, we demand to be heard.
It may be generational, but the video games that portray gun violence, robbery, mayhem, mass murder is, IMO, taking effect on youth of today. They escape to another world and isolate themselves and then explode on the rest of us. Parents have a strong role to play in this evolution of the times.
I didn't hear about 2 off-duty officers participating in it.I did hear about one on duty police officer who participated in it. He is/was a undercover agent at the time and his interference would have blown his cover.He was reprimanded for not reporting what happened until a few days later.
We live in an age of declining decency.All manor of mayhem is perpetrated daily,some of it makes the news.It is regrettable,but we will see this trend continue.
My understanding is the two LEO's were not on duty and work undercover. They own bikes and were participating in the ride while off duty. As all LEO's, they have a duty to identify themselves when crimes are being committed. They may have felt in a bind when the events went viral and then waited several days to offer up they were there? Can't seem to count on some to do the right thing in uniform or out...
This story made it all the way to South Africa and was quite a hot topic on Facebook for a few days. After reading up quite a bit on the topic, my opinion is this, both parties were at fault. The bikers were being hooligans to begin with BUT nothing "just" happens. This story really does reek of Range Rover a55holeness and we have all been there, whether we have been cut off or tail gated by a rich a55 driving a luxury car, in either a car or on a bike. In South Africa, BMW's or VW GTi's seem to be the biggest culprit but I've had the odd altercation with a Range Rover.My theory is this, the bikers were being hooligans and tried to get everybody off the road so they could show off, the range rover dude said screw you, I'm driving a range rover and ill do whatever I want and that's where it all started.Lesson learnt, and to be honest it's pretty obvious from the start, when you have a mob if idiots surrounding you being hooligans, politely leave as fast as you can because trouble will come if you hang around. It's just simple logic. They are just waiting for a fight.Did the guy deserve to be cut in the face? Not a chance. But I don't believe he was completely innocent either.Hornets only sting if you prod the nest.
Strange that the type of car brand causes drivers to be irresponsible? Ridiculous notion...
