Biker incident - 2011 and 2013

Edited: I don't know why the video shows a blank, but if you click on the URL at the top of the video it will take you to the video web page.

I received this information:

"Scroll down watch the video,[Name deleted] you to should know the area to.

(I) know the area well.

That is Fresh Pond RD and Metropolitan Ave (Confines of the 104P) where they are blocking the car and punching the window. Then they are on Eliot Ave riding down the sidewalk, where eliot llruns into metropolitan Ave blocking the street and businesses in the strip mall. That's another thing they are famous for doing, blocking businesses and stateing "Your out of business today, you're closed"

Bunch of lawless mutts."

I watched the video, didn't see too many RVer's camping or traveling through the streets. I'd rather worry about bears than punks on rice burners. I don't think I'll lose any sleep worrying about this menace.

Bunch of little punks!! I wonder what would happen if a bunch of Hell's Angels happened through at the same time.

sad to say, but road rage is common these days. its not just bikers, its truckers, and just plain old 4 wheelers. even bicycle riders get in on it.
you have to be aware of your surroundings. josey wales got it right there.
while we all would rather worry about the bears, trouble with road rage is more common.
just think about what you would do if confronted with the same situation.
preparation for any situation makes it less stressful.

To make this incident even more scary is the news is reporting there were two off duty LEO's riding with this group of misfits and did nothing to intervene.

I agree, road rage is more prevalent now than days of old, but I handle it the same as I always have: I smile broadly and give a friendly WHOLE HAND wave. Most think I'm crazy and leave me alone. As to a swarm of punks on rice burners, the testosterone levels are so high you'd have to be stupid to do anything while they're going off. Don't look them in the eye and back away. My comment about worrying about a bear was triggered by the fact I was in Yellowstone right before it was shut down and encountered 8 of them in my travels around the park.

Not all LEO's are good ones. Not all doctors are good ones, etc... Group think overrides individual responsibility to many times.

Ya'll make of it what you want, but the possibilities are there. As I stated, it "could" start a "trend," for a short while.

Same thing happened with flashing headlights as a form of initiation. It spread around because of the "script duplicators."

Isn't it amazing how brave people become when they can assemble as a group? Any one of those involved would run if they were by themselves.

Also, don't confuse "Biker Gang" with an MC. Trust me, there is a big difference.

As a former "Biker" I had attended many rally's and been on several rides which contained hundreds of bikes. Permits were required and obtained. We sometimes had police blocking of intersections and directing traffic where it was needed. On a one way 4 lane road we would not take up all lanes and we were certainly not stupid enough to ride on sidewalks or cross the double yellow. The arrogance and sheer stupidity and careless disregard for the general public of those idiots in the New York incidence is beyond comprehension.

Hmmmm…as a long time volunteer firefighter/EMT (no longer active) I have seen more than my share of the aftermath of a 600lb crotch rocket tangling with a 5000lb car…the car ALWAYS wins, always , Just say'in.

A vehicle is as much of a weapon as anything else, plus you can carry many other types in a vehicle. I gave up riding bikes years ago when my equilibrium went while out riding on a mountain road. Kind of miss it too.

I rode with an MC. As I was traveling down the highway at 55 mph a pickup truck pulled out and broadsided me. I went 130 feet on the pavement. I'll show you the road rash residue burns anytime you want to see them. The driver of the pickup ran. Me and the investigating officer believe he ran because he had been drinking. My 850 pound motor cycle ripped his front bumper off of his truck. Then picked him up the next day when he came home. He spent 2 years of a 4 years sentence in a Texas Correctional Institute for failure to stop and render aid (a felony in Texas), and leaving the scene of an accident

I was wearing a helmet, although Texas does not require one. I did not black out. I heard the helmet scraping along the pavement the whole way, along with my hand palm down. I could not raise either one off the pavement. A passerby had to lift my motor cycle so I could remove my foot from underneath it. Besides a lot of road rash I broke my 5th metatarsal. I walked away but was still transported to UTMB for observation and cleansing of wounds.

Thank you Lord for keeping me alive.

Motor cycles should not argue with bigger vehicles.

Wouldn't you love to open the door on a vehicle as the idiots passed you illegally on the left?

Lawless bunch of idiots. The gang mentality.
