Yep. I wondered about that when I first read about here at FR and googled it. Sure enough.

So attacking vehicles in NYC is allowed.

Yet another reason why I will never again spend another dime in that dump.

You can find a lot of videos and footage of these bikers streaming down New York city highways. Aside from the violence against the SUV occupants I thought it was a cool ride. Are quads street legal in NYC? Anyway there were two in this biker crowd that in my opinion was mostly Hispanic but with others, blacks and whites

Violent Holdering continues abetted by “L”EO.

The violence was planned at the DO”J”,
and EVERY ignoring of it will accelerate it.

Isn’t that special? Since there will be no criminal charges filed, I imagine this opens that poor family up to a civil suit by the bikers and their families that got hit?

The racial scorecard is Hispanic crotch rocket riders versus Chinese SUV occupants with some accounts saying a black individual used his helmet to break SUV windows.

Chinese driver did panic and greatly injure one rider, mangling his legs. this is what set things off.

This time only one of the bad guys got hurt. Next time in will probably be an innocent family that dies. The cops will be needed in 10 seconds and will get there in 10 minutes.

The truth is that one must always be prepared to protect themselves. We should all look to avoid bad situations, or as this man did, flee or retreat if we can. But in the end the bad guy punks brought the fight to him and put him in a situation where he was helpless to defend himself or his family. He is lucky that he and his family are still alive.

The city of New York thinks that you should die at the hands of this kind of punk. They will not allow you to be able to defend yourself.

Note to myself. Don't ever go to anyplace that does not honor my CCW's.

I boycotted NY City years ago after one race card fool tried it on with me and then used his race card to get out of the trouble. Then within an hour I got a ticket off the most arrogant rudest cop I have met and all I did was to sit in my car waiting for the wife and I never had a seat belt on and then I was charged double than NY City resident and I’m out of state.

NY City can go and screw.

” I thought it was a cool ride. “

So you think it is cool to:

Ride all over the sidewalks

Pass on the right off of the authorized lane

Ride in same lane with cars inches from the driver

Do wheelies in traffic

Speed in traffic

Use no tags or stolen tags

Ride in lanes weaving and white-lining opposing traffic

Cut off cars and hit the brakes so as to cause an accident

Cool? NOT!

No. The bikers cut him off and caused a minor accident. When the SUV driver stopped they attacked his vehicle. He feared for his life and did the only thing he could to try to protect his family from the thugs.

From the video, it looked like the first biker that was hit was deliberately taunting the SUV driver - getting right in front of him and slowing down. So, first biker knocked down, not clear how much he is hurt. Accident looks like his fault but maybe not. Driver stops like a good citizen. Other bikers cluster around SUV. Can’t see what happens but after a bit driver takes off, hitting other bikes and bikers. Chase ensues, driver eventually gets off highway, gets stuck at traffic light, biker breaks window.

Apparently all NYC cops are on furlough, or neither bikers nor driver thought to call 911: Help - this guy just ran over our buddies and took off! Help - this biker gang is chasing me and my family on the Westside Highway!

My last visit there I was with my wife and my sister when we witnessed a homeless man urinating in public. So we can add urine to the abundance of concrete and filth. This was all before NYC’s mayor used his considerable fortune to try and strip me of my Second Amendment rights. I will never go back, my tourist dollars can be better spent elsewhere.

Extremely hard to call 911 while trying to evade 50 motorcyclists out to beat you and possible kill you.

Cops have gotten photos of hundreds of license plates from bridge and tunnel cameras and are trying to identify more of the bikers, who first swarmed Lien, his wife and child on the West Side Highway in Harlem Sunday about 1:30 p.m.

But many of the plates are stolen or belong on different bikes, making it tougher to ID the motorcyclists.

Sound like cool guys all right. Surprised they didn't have a Jersey state trooper leading the pack.

The way it looked to me in the video the bikers initiated the situation by surrounding the SUV and one in front deliberately slowing so as the car would hit him. At first it looks like the driver tries to pull over and do the right thing but the bikers appear to start attacking him and fearing for his wife, child and himself he just hits the gas to get away hitting the biker.

Right before that he was riding next to the SUV driver in the same lane taunting him.

She may have froze. My wife tends to do that. I practice with her to have her look at me and do what I say if she freezes. But this was a young couple probably not hardened to the thugs of the world.

I don’t believe the Chinese guy and his family were in danger at this point. What I see is vibrant exuberant Hispanics out having a good time and Chinese guy does not know how to take this in. I hope you know that Chinese are awful drivers at least in America. Chinese guy panicked thus paralyzing a vibrant culture bike rider (Hispanic)

The Chinese guy -Alex Lien- went to the hospital and was released. He had minor injuries.

This versus biker with busted up legs

Other reports say that the driver of the SUV had already called 911 before the “biker” forced him into an accident. 200 others had already called the police about this group of “bikers” before that as well.

Facts:

(1) The bikers - taking a page from pro-bicycle agitation groups - blocked off the entrances to part of the West Side Highway to prevent motorists from getting on to the WSH.

(2) The bikers were riding in front of cars and deliberately braking to hinder their passage, effectively guiding them to the WSH exits.

(3) They did this so they could have a couple of miles of highway to themselves to do stunts.

(4) This driver was trying to get off at the 178 St exit to get home, but the bikers wanted him to get off at 125 St. so one of them, Christopher Cruz, slammed on his brakes to startle the driver. The driver did not stop in time and knocked Cruz from his bike in an accident that Cruz deliberately caused.

(5) When Cruz fell off his bike, the driver was surrounded by more than 30 bikers, who began kicking his car and pulling at his doors. Much of this was caught on video.

(6) The driver, fearing for his safety, gunned his engine and sped through the crowd.

(7) One of the cowardly morons in this lynch mob tried to get back in front of the car - the driver hit him and, intelligently, kept going.

(8) While the driver's wife called 911, he exited at 178 St. to get to his home. He hit a red light at the exit.

(9) While he was stuck at the red, 50 or more bikers surrounded his car, smashed in his windows, scattered broken windshield glass over the driver's two year old and wife, sliced up his face and chest with a razor and beat and kicked him unconscious.

(10) The NYPD, thanks to the leftist crackdown on "stop and frisk" and due to criticism of the NYPD from a recent car chase in which an unlicensed driver drove on a sidewalk to evade capture and killed a 4 year old girl, no longer engages in these pursuits.

(11) The Manhattan DA, likely anticipating a new DeBlasio regime, is apparently afraid to prosecute a "Holder's people" gang that intimidates, surrounds, assaults and tries to kill a productive citizen.

Looked like an accident to me.

But I guess you're right. If someone hits you, your low-life thug buddies should chase him down, break his windows, drag him from the car and beat the crap out of him in front of his wife and five year-old daughter because simply calling the cops and an ambulance is just too mellow and law-abiding.

Here's hoping you never get in an accident with thugs.

Is an /s tag really necessary here?

100% of the video was recorded by the same thugs that beat/knifed the SUV driver. They edited out the parts they didn’t want anyone to see!
