Fear and gunfire on the MUP

Man charged after he shoots out the tires of a bike of someone who kicked him in the ribs causing him to crash.  If I were on that jury, he would get off scott free.  These youths need to learn some respect.  You can't just go around kicking people in the ribs for no reason.  Too bad he didn't aim at them.  You attack someone you lose any consideration as far as I'm concerned.  Too bad the law disagrees.

Sheesh, maybe I'll postpone the family ride down there this week.

 Funny, I was just talking to a friend about a nice bike trail we ride once in a while.
She asked, "why don't they put a few picnic tables there so we can sit and enjoy the area a bit?"
My answer, "The Punk Fringe, will be sure to utilize it for a hang out and soon it will be a place for drugs and vandals.  No picnic tables assures us a nice place to sit on the grass and have a sandwich."

I don't think this guy did the "right" thing, but he did something which will, hopefully, lead to a better area for bikers...

he got attacked. a 15 and 17 year old could kill someone if they were stupid enough/strong enough. imagine if they kicked some olde lady in the ribs....she could of died.

Instead they clearly messed with the wrong dude, its a shame the law disagrees with me.

 BWPA, I didn't get my true feelings across.  I don't think he did the right thing, because he committed a chargeable offense.  I think he did the right thing because he defended himself.
I just hate to see a guy like him charged with a crime when forced to defend himself.
Now, hopefully, because of his actions the area will be monitored better and people will be able to enjoy their community.

when has the law ever dictated what was right or wrong?

a chargeable offense could be any of these.

- a 18-20 year old drinking a beer(where in almost any place else its legal) they are hurting no one
- someone smoking pot, they are hurting noone but themselves. Heck if they have cancer or another terminal or near terminal disease they may actually be helping themselves.
- someone driving 120mph on a highway with noone else there, again speed limits arent for safety on the open road they are too raise revenue.

to follow the law blindly and not question it is the mindset of a sheep this country is full of those. We need more that are wolfs, like this guy, and not sheep.
