Over the last few days the united states and probably the entire world have been fed a company line of the koolaid the authorities want you to drink that “CRAZED BIKIES ATTACK CAR DRIVER”
But a story has just emerged and it has been documented by film from “go-pro camera on the bike riders helmets “ that in fact the SUV drive had hit and run over not one but three of the group and each time left the scene of the accident ! Today it was announced that the first rider hit is paralyzed for life from the waist down.
If I and say my lacrosse team are walking down 5th ave and a man walks up and stabs the first man in the spine and runs away then comes back and throws another one to the floor breaking bones and again runs away then finally comes running up and attacks a team mate so viciously he needs hospitalization but this time as he runs he trips and tries to attack another but you defend yourself and he is injured .
If the scenario was lacrosse team instead of motorcycle riders the headlines would have been ‘BRAVE SPORTS TEAM HHEROICALLY SUBDUES VIOLENT ATTACKER” bloomberg would give the team a medal and some millionaire would pay the medical bills, but we as a society have been fed the koolaid that if 6 or more people ride motorbikes their all clones of “sons of anarchy” or drug running gun selling outlaws?
My orthopedist is head of orthopedic surgery at a major new york hospital, but on weekends he rides a Harley with 25 other professionals who enjoy motor cycles. the largest motor cycle gang in America is the freedom riders, a group of military veterans who provide honor guard at military funerals. Heroes every one of them, including a couple of congressional medal of honor winners but a scruffier bunch of outlaw looking riders doesn’t exist than these guys.
I am not saying it’s right to drag someone from their car, but ask your self if three of your friends had been attacked by one crazed driver in a large range rover and one ended up paralyzed for life and he tried to run wouldn’t you consider it your duty to first stop him leaving and then disarm him from what ever weapon he held including the ability to operate a car if that’s the weapon he used?
George Zimmerman was allowed to kill a unarmed teen who was just eating skittles, in most states of America you can shoot a shadowy figure in your home without even knowing if their armed. If Mr retired banker shoots drugged out burglar he’s a hero but if that retired banker was wearing leather on a Harley or some Japanese crotch rocket no matter if he is right he must be wrong because the authorities have two rules.
RULE NUMBER 1- ALL MOTORCYCLE RIDERS MUST BE DISGUSTING CRIMINALS
RULE NUMBER 2- IF IN DOUBT READ AND LIVE BY RULE NUMBER 1
The original Hells angels were all heroes, air aces who returned from world war 2 and purchased the motor cycles the air force provided to ride from their barracks to the airfield when the sirens would go off to take off for battle because riding a motorcycle was as close as they could get on the ground to the buzz of fyling fighters. When did we start lumping every intelligent adult into a category of sons of anarchy, just because they decided the wife needs the car for the kids and a motorcycle was cheaper to run?
In India nearly every Buddhist monk I knew rode a motorcycle when leaving the monastery, but if they did it here on the way to see dying patents in hospice the headlines would read FOREIGN BIKERS INVADE CANCER HOSPICE .
I’m not a fool, yes there are criminals who form bike gangs, just like Latino gangs in los angeles drive low riders or urban cool kids ride skate boards. Before we start calling in Chuck Norris to go ballistic on people for their mode of transport, how about we investigate who actually was to blame? As far as I’m concerned and most intelligent people have commented, if you and two friends are rundown and critically injured by a crazed person driving a large SUV your friends are not criminals for defending you they’re heroes!
