if you've seen the video on Facebook, from Bikerspost.com https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10201193274928183 or on Youtube (which has realized the advertising potential of this video and now disabled the embed code so you have to watch the commercial crap) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ukdkgLYYbw&feature=player_embedded
or seen the NBC News story that interviewed a bikers mom, as he is in the hospital on a respirator http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/01/20772232-1-biker-charged-another-critical-in-nyc-range-rover-chase?lite
in a nutshell, A guy named Cruz slowed down to block the Range Rover so the bikers could take over the highway in all lanes, without the Range Rover in the pack... I guess the bikers had a pace, and it wasn't faster than the Range Rover's... just fast enough to create the problem, instead of getting way out in front and staying there.
The bikers lose their minds because the Range Rover did a slow speed bump and hit Cruz's bike, and proceed to slash the tires on the Range Rover, and take off helmets and beat the shit out of the SUV
So, the Range Rover driver, Lien is his last name, who realizes he's pissed off 30 some angry bikers who have knives, and are using them to permanently disable his SUV which he has his wife and kid in for a afternoon drive... just drives over everything infront of him, bikes and bikers alike, and try to get away
they get only so far before an intersection forces the Range Rover to stop... and
but that isn't all
An undercover New York police officer was on the scene when a pack of angry motorcycle riders chased down and beat a Range Rover driver in front of his wife and toddler, two law enforcement officials said Friday. The unidentified cop came forward four days after the harrowing incident — which was captured on camera and became a viral video that has gotten millions of hits — and Internal Affairs is investigating. This information was first reported by the New York Post. There is no evidence the officer took part in the assault on driver Alexian Lien, but he also did not assist the victim or call 911, one source said. Another biker, Robert Sims, surrendered to police Friday. He is believed to have yanked the vehicle's door and also participated in the assault.
and from the wife in the Range Rover: Ng called 911 four times amid the dramatic standoff, first at 1:52 p.m., police sources told NBC News. She told the operator: “We’re surrounded by a group of bikers.” from a NBC article http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/03/20800978-family-involved-in-suv-biker-clash-was-in-fear-for-our-lives?lite
in a related story... the guy (last name Mieses) who was run over by the Range Rover? Already a client of Gloria Allred, publicity ***** who will represent anyone in the headlines. ***** means what you think it does I'm not looking to get sued. http://abcnews.go.com/US/injured-bikers-wife-gloria-allred-innocent-victim/story?id=20467895
Meises hasn't had a drivers license since his recent arrest, no motorcycle endorsement on a drivers license ever
and the local state senator? Jumped all over this publicity opportunity to try to outlaw motorcycles riding in packs. What a joke
Jalopnik has a GIF of what morons the bikers were before tangling with the Range Rover http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/the-footage-that-the-nyc-bikers-didnt-want-you-to-see-1435594427/1436603736/@orlove
Normally I only give motorcycle riders good publicity... but it's like something I heard recently:
the gentlemen were denounced by a bystander who said "there were no gentlemen here"
Latest update 7 Oct, 1445ish http://news.msn.com/crime-justice/lawyer-nypd-officer-didnt-see-driver-attacked
the undercover cop is seen on new video punching the SUV, shattering its rear window, a law enforcement official confirms to NBC 4 New York.
The officer, who was not on duty, came forward last Wednesday, several days after the Sept. 29 chase that ended in a fight, to say he was present, according to a source, and did not call 911 when the assault was taking place.
The video that just recently surfaced shows the undercover smashing the window, but not participating in the assault. He rides off when the driver is pulled from the SUV, according to a person familiar with the investigation. The video has not been made public.
Sources say the undercover was not truthful with investigators about his role. A law enforcement official said Tuesday that investigators are considering criminal charges against him.
