Victim Records Mob Attack on Helmet Camera Video (Baltimore)
WCBM ^ | Via Baltimore Sun | Ian Duncan

Posted on 04/15/2014 6:48:45 PM PDT by equalator

Bowman posted the video, taken on a helmet-mounted camera, to YouTube, leading cyclists around the city to recount on social media similar experiences they had in the area.

"I thought I'd just outrun the attackers," he wrote. "Wrong. Unless you're going downhill or already have some major speed, they will block your escape routes and grab any part of your bike or clothing to try to bring you down."

He regularly films his commute and rides at night.

Who the heck gets on a child's toy and pedals around at night? Anywhere?

The only black folks I see on TV or in the movies quote Shakespeare or teach us about black holes so I have no idea who these people are attacking cyclists.

It’s crazy to me, that we can say that they are “teenagers” or “young people”, but cannot say that they are black teenagers.

The entire mob appears to be black and the victim just happened to be white.

They probably should reschedule for the daylight hours.

Or better yet, drive.

Get rid of the bike and buy a Ford F250 with a plow. Let's see the sumbitches grab that and bring it down.

There used to be a company that marketed a pistol under the name of “Velodog” it was a compact pistol intended to shoot feral animals attacking a bicyclist. Some ideas need to be revived.

I assume you are serious.

Please correct me if I am interpreting your words incorrectly, but I’m hearing you say that we, as conservatives, should turn our backs on those who are attempting to face down the ferals?

I hate to say it, but "white dude wearing colorful spandex riding $3,000 bike through black neighborhood at night?"

Isn't that a little like feeding crocodiles by hand or tickling lions at the zoo under the chin?

I am a biker and I might have even taken a swing at this idiot just for his general stupidity.

John Derbyshire

“The Talk”

(8) These differences are magnified by the hostility many blacks feel toward whites. Thus, while black-on-black behavior is more antisocial in the average than is white-on-white behavior, average black-on-white behavior is a degree more antisocial yet.

(9) A small cohort of blacks—in my experience, around five percent—is ferociously hostile to whites and will go to great lengths to inconvenience or harm us. A much larger cohort of blacks—around half—will go along passively if the five percent take leadership in some event. They will do this out of racial solidarity, the natural willingness of most human beings to be led, and a vague feeling that whites have it coming.

(10) Thus, while always attentive to the particular qualities of individuals, on the many occasions where you have nothing to guide you but knowledge of those mean differences, use statistical common sense:

(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.

(10b) Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods.

(10c) If planning a trip to a beach or amusement park at some date, find out whether it is likely to be swamped with blacks on that date (neglect of that one got me the closest I have ever gotten to death by gunshot).

(10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.

(10e) If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible.

(10f) Do not settle in a district or municipality run by black politicians.

(10g) Before voting for a black politician, scrutinize his/her character much more carefully than you would a white.

(10h) Do not act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress, e.g., on the highway.

(10i) If accosted by a strange black in the street, smile and say something polite but keep moving.

(11) The mean intelligence of blacks is much lower than for whites. The least intelligent ten percent of whites have IQs below 81; forty percent of blacks have IQs that low. Only one black in six is more intelligent than the average white; five whites out of six are more intelligent than the average black. These differences show in every test of general cognitive ability that anyone, of any race or nationality, has yet been able to devise. They are reflected in countless everyday situations. “Life is an IQ test.”

Okay, I get everyone saying one should be a motorist but I did read a story where a young man, around 19 years old, unable to have a car was sent out to deliver some homemade food to relative and took the bike and indeed got mugged on the bike.

There’s also such things as car repairs and just plain other reasons, saving money, one might not have a car to use, it happens.

I use the bike frequently but I’m over all supercautious and I don’t really go with the fancy clothing, shorts like underwear and all of that, yes, I’ll get on the sidewalk if need be, walk the bike if need be. And I’ve largely stayed out of riding in so-called dangerous areas though one time, though not endangered thank goodness, I was in a rough area. Live and Learn.

By now everyone should know that black people don’t always observe the rules of polite society. Acts of savagery against whites, orientals, Jews, and Hispanics are common place. Travel in groups that can offer a little defense against these incidents of tribal savagery, and go armed, if possible.

This guy was lucky.

Some cyclists already carry spray for dogs.

There is pepper spray, there seems to be even guns that shoot pepper spray pellets nowadays.

They are stuffing potatoes into exhaust pipes at stop signs to kill the motor.

Few people have grates covering their tailpipes to prevent the stop sign attacks.

"I thought I'd just outrun the attackers," he wrote. "Wrong. Unless you're going downhill or already have some major speed, they will block your escape routes and grab any part of your bike or clothing to try to bring you down."

Since the Middle Ages, men have dropped caltrops behind them as they ran/fled to halt their pursuers.

Modern caltrops, unlike medieval ones, stack on top of each other so that you can carry 20 where before you could carry one or two.

Silent and entirely legal in every jurisdiction. Depending on where you live worldwide, other more lethal options may also be available to you.
