The bicyclist doesnt remember seeing the youths run at him as he pedaled home late Tuesday afternoon on the Metropolitan Branch Trail, but he certainly recalls one knocking him off his bike and at least a dozen others piling on, punching and kicking him in the head.
What the 37-year-old cant understand is why they did it. They didnt take his $500 bicycle. They ignored his cellphone. They didnt want the $20 in his wallet. In fact, the victim said, I didnt hear a word.
And the lack of apparent motive is haunting the married father of two, who uses the trail regularly to bike between his office in the NoMa section of the District and his house in Silver Spring.
The randomness of the attack near Third and S streets NE and near the location of a surge of violent robberies two years ago has made him more scared and more angry and left him wondering whether its time to give up pedal power in his commute.
I would be fine if they took my things, that I understand, said the man, recovering at home from broken bones above his left eye and bruises too numerous to count. But violence for violences sake is troubling.

Well crap! Now someone tells me that I didn’t really have to work hard all those years by simply using my white privilege so I could retire half way comfy? Man do I feel like I’m from Dumbassistan. LOL!
this guys sounds like he’s liberal. As a good liberal, he can’t comprehend being attacked by savage minority youth. After all, he’s on their side, sympathetic to how the man and the system have kept them down and all that. He probablt felt immune to attack due to being liberal.
Thats the evil plot of the libs! Why do you think they put so much effort into minimizing white people and teaching kids how evil we are? to suppress our natural superpowers!
I’m on to their dastardly plan. So if I disappear, the world will know the truth!
You just need to wear your cracker on your sleeve. Dont-cha-know
Those of us from Krypton have them. Sorry to those that don’t.
Yep. Chaos and madness.
But we don’t HAVE to be sorry! We are white. So we oppress and dominate! That’s the beauty of the superpower!
It’s not racist. Libs tell us that every day and libs never lie so we can say it.
what you said!
He can't think of a reason? Talk about a poster boy for Darwin. On any number of levels, the clueless enable the vermin. How does *that* help the environment?
Being locked in an SUV is looking pretty good now, huh, Libby?
Yes, they are. I associate with Liberals every day. They really ARE that stupid. I've just given up and decided they are beyond help.
I would be fine if they took my things, that I understand, said the man,
I wonder if he would understand if they took his life.
Is that why my power to make libs heads explode when they tell a lie?
They are NOT what you called ‘feral and uncivilized barbarians’ or ‘uncivilized savages’, That would make them UNUSUAL, these b@stards are the NORMAL BLACK YOUTH, the ones who DON’T ACT THIS WAY, are the unusual ones.
Look at travon marton-spelled wrong to show my DISRESPCT for him- he would be alive if he didn’t start a fight.
It’s a natural byproduct. I can prove it. Simply walk into any college or coffee shop wearing a Reagan/Flag shirt. Libs will start screaming without you saying a word.
If the X-men taught us anything it’s that people fear that which they do not understand. And God knows libs fear EVERYTHING ;)
I guess now he’s dazed *AND* confused! :)
There are too many people who remain children by choice, as if self-inflicted cluelessness absolves them of any accountability in life. When reality comes down hard and without mercy, instead of casting off the delusions, they double down on stupid. Anything but electing to grow up. The Bible calls them the simple.
Proverbs 22:3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
This sounds like a craft project. Take a saltine and glue a safety pin to the back. Affix to the lapel.
Note the reactions.
We certainly don't want for you to be troubled, now do we? So why don't you take a good long look in the mirror, and recall what you can about the appearance of your assailants. Now can you think of a much more likely reason that you were attacked than "for violence's sake"?
(Yes, I am reading between the lines, and I might be wrong, but I used to live in D.C. I left.)
They say a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged, but that requires that the muggee have a measurable IQ.
