Default Road Raged Man Kills Biker

Huh! An SUV! Who would've guessed it?



Who wants to bet he'll get more than one year in jail? I wouldn't.

Note to all riders: Don't fight with cars.



My dad used to say, "He was right, dead right." Your life is not worth a game of chicken. Leave your ego at home so you can enjoy your children when you return.



I did note the article pointed out they weren't wearing helmets as if that would have helped massive trauma to the sternum, spine and ribs.



I suppose if he had been wearing a full-face they could have had his viewing in a nice hat box.

His defense will probably be if they were wearing helmets they might have lived so it was the bikers fault.

I have to agree with you on the helmet comment in the article. It was placed as a stand alone sentence between two paragraphs as if to elevate the importance that they were not wearing helmets.



Normally I would side with the reporter stating weather or not a rider was wearing a helmet in a fatal accident. In this case the reporter is clearly trying to distort the facts and imply a helmet could have made a difference.

I totally agree. It's sort of like carrying a concealed firearm (or open carry when in AZ). You do not argue as any argument will be deemed an assault on your part when carrying a firearm. Just as you should just pull the hell over and let the jackass in the SUV pass.



But as a side note, since, when I'm not by myself, I am usually only riding with my girlfriend, if I was the survivor that guy would never make it to court.

Default The helmet thing

Yep I thought the helmet thing might cause a stir but in this case I don't think it would of helped. As longride has said numerous times. Massive internal injuries causing trauma to the chest and adomen ain't going to be helped by a helmet. i.e. sometimes you are going to die no matter what...

Totally agree with you, don't fight with cars. Sometimes the best thing to do is walk away....

Sad, isn't it. A cold blooded murderer will get less time than some kid caught in possession of pot.

If this guy used a gun, he'd be up for life, or possibly even a date with the electric chair. By using his car, he will get off with a couple years max. So the moral of the story, is never use a weapon if you are going to off someone. Use the car.
