Crazy Video of Bikers vs SUV (1 Viewer)

So am I reading this right?

Killing thugs with your SUV to protect your family = Smart move Guy.

Killing thugs with your gun to protect your family = Whoa, slow down there Butch Cassidy, this isn't the 1890s!
It's just kinda sick to see the iToughguys getting chubbed up over the thought of killing "bad guys". Life isnt a video game. People who are forced into these situations are usually ####ed up for life. GM's response is the only honest one in the thread and would be true for 99.9% of normal people in society.

 
Drive by any flagpole. Stick hand out and grab flagpole breaking entire thing off at base. Joust with bikers, knocking them off bike. If flagpole breaks, throw piece you are still holding into spokes of front wheel of closest bike.

Haha. IToughguys. I was making a joke. I would've done the exact same thing as this guy, hopefully(not sure I would've been calm enough to pull it off). Just amazed to see so many people say they'd be willing to run these guys over with an SUV, yet be repulsed when a guy says it would've been different if the SUV driver had a gun.

I don't think its just about gun vs. vehicle as the weapon, I think its more that most people are going to feel that their family is safer staying in their 3 ton SUV and running down any motorcycles that they need to in order to keep moving until the police get there, whereas pulling out a gun and risking having someone else return fire into an SUV with my kid in it doesn't seem like as good an idea so I can see why someone might not agree with that, but that doesn't make the person Wyatt Earp either if they did pull a gun. Frankly I wouldn't care if someone whipped out a flamethrower or a hand grenade and killed all of the bikers, just for me personally I'm just choosing whatever action is going keep my wife and kid the safest. In my mind, starting a gunfight in this situation probably isn't the best scenario, but I wouldn't blame anyone who did. If I have to take a beating to keep my wife and kid safe, I'm doing it. Again, that's in hindsight, the guy could give himself up and they could start beating his wife next, flip the truck over with his kid in it, etc. who knows how it could have turned out. But in this particular instance, it seems that taking the beating was probably the best course of action as his wife and kid were unharmed (at least physically) , it could have escalated a lot further if other weapons were introduced.

Ok, watched this again.

The guy he hit didn't brake check him. In fact I think the ####### thought he was clear of the SUV to the left and dropped the throttle and seemed to grab the brake perhaps to let SUV by. Note this dude who gets hit turns up with his bike in the last encounter so he and his bike were ok.

 
That's some scary stuff right there. It's mentioned in a couple of articles that this is some kind of annual bikers event in NYC? If so, are traffic lights moderated by police or are these groups just ignoring all kinds of traffic laws like red lights and stuff in their mob mentality. I'm talking about the other youtube vids posted by that same guy.
The West Side Highway/Henry Hudson up in that part of the city doesn't have any traffic lights, from what I know. Lights are pretty frequent around 57th st and south.
I have no idea where they are at the time, but here's one example from another video where they run multiple red lights.
At the 2:00 mark, when this guy takes out his CC and is filling up, anyone have one those computer from CSI where they can zoom way in and make things magically clear?? It would be a shame if 4chan or reddit got a hold of this guys CC number.

He's looking right at the SUV. He pulls ahead in his lane, looks back and intentionally slows down

If you can't see how being surrounded by bikers, having your tires slashed, and your driver's side window smashed with a helmet before being dragged into the street and beaten and not knowing what they will do to your wife and child doesn't warrant having a gun for self-defense then you can never be reasoned with on this issue and you will always make up hypotheticals to make yourself feel better about your fear of guns.

I don't have a motocycle I ride bikes some. He first looks over his right shoulder right at the SUV. This look pulls the bike over to the right, which he may not have realized. This same thing happens to rookies on bicycles as well. When he starts the look back over his right shoulder he has clearance to the left of the SUV. By the time he looks back over his left shoulder he is damn near in the center of the lane and then slows a bunch but does begin clearing to the left of the lane, quickly. I also don't think he had LOS to the SUV while slowing down. His helmet would have reduced his vision.

I've used this technique and it works.

 
To all you people saying run them ovet don't shoot them....what if you start running them over and they start shooting at you....

 
This is why you need a conceal & carry permit and guns!
Yes start a gun fight with your family in the car while you are massively outnumbered. Better off sticking to SUV as weapon until the police catch up. 911 is your best friend here.
Typical B.S. response, wait for the police to arrive. How did that turn out for him after they slashed his tires?

The crew then beat the man in front of his wife and child, police sources said.

The victim was rushed to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital with two black eyes, and also needed stitches on his face and chest.
You do realize he wouldn't necessarily need to fire his weapon to defend himself, his wife or his child.
He could just smack them over the head with the butt? His gun turns into a phone and he can call the police? Are you suggesting that he will intimidate the biker gang by waving his gun around and they all go home? Wacky gun nut logic.
Yes I am, are you assuming that every incident involving a gun requires someone to die?
I'm not assuming anything. If a gun gets pulled, someone could die. If he doesn't shoot, and just shakes it around trying to scare someone, one of the thugs might just take it away and shove it up his ###.

 
To all you people saying run them ovet don't shoot them....what if you start running them over and they start shooting at you....
Obviously if someone starts shooting at you and you're carrying, you shoot back, completely different scenario from you introducing a gun into a situation where one has not yet been introduced.

I agree with the right to carry and peoples right to defend themselves and their family and would absolutely not have an issue with anyone pulling a gun here, but for me personally in this particular scenario, with my wife and kid in the car, it all comes down to what is the % chance that my wife and/or kid get killed if I take the beating vs. the % chance they get killed if I pull a gun and end up having to fire it. You can speculate all day on what would/could happen in either scenario, nobody knows. I just personally think if the guy gets out and gets his ### kicked, his family is less likely to get harmed than if guns are introduced. If you're by yourself in the SUV, then I say by all means go ahead and pump a couple into the chest of the ######## that smashed the window in with the helmet.

No gun really needed to get pulled, someone already easily could have died in this situation.

But I do agree that pulling a gun would quickly escalate it. If it was me in that situation and I had a gun, I don't think I would pull it (given my cool, level-headed post-event analysis).

He doesn't start clearing to the left while looking left and braking. If anything, he moves even a little further right towards the center of the lane.

Do you think these guys were NOT picking on this SUV? That this was just random? Seems to me they singled this SUV out and started messing with him. Why? Again, has anybody interviewed these guys? Arrests made? It's all on film and police were called. Where is our law and order?

Oil slick or a smokescreen. Maybe even call that big rig that allows you to drive up into the back and hide out.

 
Scary situation. I'm a gun owner with a CCW and I wouldn't have pulled my gun in that situation until it was absolutely necessary (like right after the dude broke the window). Still probably not a good move against a mob like that.

The best choice of action the guy could have done is stay on the highway at a moderate pace until the police were able to break it up. And don't stop for anything - flat tires or not!

It was strange that he had the door unlocked when he stopped on the highway the first time.

Yeah, I just tried to look at it in the lens of what his intentions might have been. That's a real quick way to get killed so I really doubt he tried that stunt with the idea of backing up into him. We also don't see exactly the last few critical seconds or know if the SUV was braking through that whole scene.

From what I gathered no arrests had been made. The reason the bikers got pissed off is the SUV was merging into traffic and they would not make room for the SUV and didn't want to share the road with him.

The biker group that was primarily responsible for the harassment, pursuit and assault of the Range Rover driver is the Frontline Soldiers Mc from Rochelle, NY. They've started to scrub all their contact info online, but here's what I found: http://pastebin.com/Z06J8NhS

I don't know either. The RR somehow found himself in the middle of the pack and I can't imagine they were too thrilled about that. But it's also possible he wasn't be a respectable driver either.

No risk of having 5% of the bikers pulling an SUV out their back pocket to reciprocate.
If you were paying attention, you'd realize that you're the one that started with the hypotheticals. So stop being a jagoff about them

Deal?

I would get SAMCRO on this, but they're down to like 5 guys, and one of them is that fat ### Phil.

 
When you block the door of a vehicle, or you surround a vehicle to impede movement, you're guilty of kidnapping. (Seize or DETAIN unlawfully - When I took my CCW class, this was covered extensively.)

At this point, you have the right to use lethal force if you feel that your life is in danger, in almost any state. Because the assailant is blocking your retreat, you no longer have the option to retreat.

If you watch close during 15-20 seconds in, you can see the guy trying to talk to the driver before he brake checked the SUV.

Investigators were reviewing nearby surveillance cameras and social media to try and track down the people who attacked Lien, Kelly said.
Kelly said cops were trying to identify some of the bikers, but most of the motorcycles captured in the footage didn’t have license plates on the vehicles.
Seems like these #######s knew they were going to be out wreaking havoc and didn't want to be identified.

 
Read in the NY Daily News comment section (and there was a link to another youtube video supposedly showing this...didn't have time to look it up) that it started when the Range Rover merged onto the highway with the bikes, lots of bikes in the right lane that didn't want to move over and weren't happy that the SUV merged with them. And supposedly the reason that he got off the highway is that the bikers had cut his tires?? I do remember several bikes getting close to the SUV so I guess that is possible? Didn't see that anywhere else so take it for what it is worth.
Think it's this one at about the 2:30 mark.
Dammit, helps if I post the link. :bag:

Scary....I was surrounded by 6 Harleys once after I merged into the middle of them. It was at night on a relatively quiet road....I was absolutely ready to run them over if it escalated....at least that's what I remember thinking.

just take your beating like a man. hopefully they will just knock you unconscious, and that satisfies them.

 
Last time I was on I-10 heading in to San Antonio there were some bikers having street races for about 10 or 15 miles. The ones not racing would form a line across four lanes of traffic and slow down to about 45 or 50, effectively blocking the whole highway. One biker would take off and get some distance of about 1/4 mile up the road. Then two would line up with one in the middle who would signal "go" and they'd book it to the guy who had taken off ahead of them. Repeated it about 6 or 7 times before finally speeding off and letting traffic resume. It was pretty cool to watch but no doubt caused a huge backup behind us.

 
There is no way I would stop. The first biker was an idiot to brake check him. He's lucky it wasn't me. I would have run his ### over right from the git. As far as I am concerned SUV did what he had to.
typical mad max death race 2000 tough guy response.

Flamethrower now an option on S. African cars

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (CNN) -- Crime-obsessed South Africans have a powerful new weapon with which to stop likely criminals: the car flamethrower.

Casting a man-high fireball, reportedly with no damage to the paint, the Blaster has been placed on 25 South African vehicles since its introduction last month.

At 3,900 rand ($655), it offers a cheap, dramatic defense against carjackers. It has yet to be deemed illegal.

South African courts allow killing if convinced that it's in self-defense. The defense is not unheard of. In last year's 13,000 carjackings, criminals often brandished weapons or used them with little provocation.

The Blaster squirts liquefied gas from a bottle in the automobile's trunk through two nozzles, located under the front doors. The gas is then ignited by an electric spark, with fiery consequences.

Both sides flame at the same time, regardless of whether the attack is coming from just one side of the vehicle, or whether passersby are on the other side. But the breadth and depth of blast can be modified according to individual preference.
Note: Apologies in advance to those who for some unknown reason feel squeamish about news emanating from Africa.

South African courts allow killing if convinced that it's in self-defense. The defense is not unheard of. In last year's 13,000 carjackings, criminals often brandished weapons or used them with little provocation.

The Blaster squirts liquefied gas from a bottle in the automobile's trunk through two nozzles, located under the front doors. The gas is then ignited by an electric spark, with fiery consequences.

Both sides flame at the same time, regardless of whether the attack is coming from just one side of the vehicle, or whether passersby are on the other side. But the breadth and depth of blast can be modified according to individual preference.
Note: Apologies in advance to those who for some unknown reason feel squeamish about news emanating from Africa.
In before people reply that the bikers could also have flame throwers and you should just take your beating like a man or risk bbq-ing your family in retaliation.
