Can we stop with the death crap?! Any quick google search will come up with DOZENS of these.



Enough!

Anybody stupid enough to step in front of a speeding motorcycle is stupid enough to step in front of a speeding car: Darwin works in mysterious ways.



Bryan...why did it have to be a bike, though?

Not only that but the article is another example of the abysmal standards of reporting that passes for "journalism" these days. Who needs any real details? Just another blood and death lurid headline used to forward whatever agenda the publisher and editors want to push.

Last fall some old woman did the same - only she was armed with a pitchfork. Same results, too.



WTF is with people who believe it to be their "job" to police the rest of the country? These are the same people who will pull-into the passing lane and "park" there in order to "slow down them crazies out there on the highway" (and run at 5mph below the limit).



Oldfcuk; I have a posthumous tip for you: DON'T F'N STEP IN FRONT OF A MOVING VEHICLE. Oh wait - you already discovered that's a poorly-devised and executed (no pun intended) plan to slow down the neighbor's kid..................



Another tip for you backroad police-in-training: Don't throw objects at cars you believe to be speeding - it's a little Felony known as "Assault".

I think we can safely say that this was not a particularly well thought-out plan.

...was the kid riding a Vincent Black Shadow, wearing a hooded black cape and carrying a scythe?



I though these things only happened in Miami...

No sh1t, if he lived he should be prosecuted for attacking the motorcyclist. I'd be f*cking pi$$ed if I was that kid in the hospital.

Holy crap. Motorcycles are dangerous.

Didn't sound like he was killed "Trying" to slow down a motorcycle. Sounds like "Stopping" would have been the word of choice.
