When Loud Pipes Are Outlawed
 
Only Outlaws Will Have Loud Pipes


Some people have no sense of proportion. So your neighbor rides his straight-piped chopper across your lawn morning after morning at 4:30 am. That's freedom...the open lawn...the grass in your teeth and the leaves in your hair. Apparently some self-centered buzzkill decided he didn't like it, and confronted a bro and killed him.

Well it's pretty Gad Dam rude riding across the neighbors lawn, not quite a capitol offense though.

Piper down. We have a piper down.
 
What class. I can think of better reasons to lose ones life. I guess he showed him. If he had to register his weapon we could have prevented this. It's for the children.

I blame it on violent video games. In "Call of the Doody IV" there's a scene where a stabbed guy chokes another guy to death with a rubber chicken. I banned my kid from playing it after seeing that.

I kept thinking about postage stamp sized lawns in Pasadena and then realized we were talking about TX.

Hell, cutting across his lawn might have saved 14 miles off the trip and helped Global Warming!

What? Is there no Hand Registry or a background-check before a person can buy a set of Hands that could have prevented this Tragedy?

You stupid Americans and your Cowboy-Hands! The article didn't say, but I bet they were large, strong Hands with at least a TEN FINGER capacity! Maybe even opposable thumbs!

That motorcyclist was an idiot. Rode over the guys lawn, when he was specifically asked not to (not that he should even have had to have been asked). Then he argues with the guy and pulls a knife and stabs him. Then the guy chokes and kills him. Clear case of self defense.

In Texas you can use deadly force to protect your property. This makes the biker even more idiotic.

The property owner must be one tough hombre. Choking a guy to death after being stabbed a couple of times...damn.

Would have been so much easier to just shoot him. Bringing 8 fingers and 2 opposable thumbs to a knife fight is not good. Much better to bring a gun. The property owner apparently is the only guy in TX who does not have a firearm.

Terrible story, but I am impressed with this guy. He is my anti-hero. Hollywood should make a movie about him.
