yeah from what I can see it looks like more hype than anything. It makes sense they got off their bikes to see how the other one was doing. But I dont see any "commotion" near the SUV itself. And what of it if some did cuss the guy for hitting the biker? Not a surprising reaction if your friend is hurt. That isnt the same as threatening the driver or smashing out his headlights.Look at the still DSP posted. They didn't all magically get back on their bike the instant the SUV was going over their partner. In the video you can see they stop and are looking back. So if anything maybe a few if so many approached the vehicle. The rest was sensationalism designed to get ratings for the news programs. Bikers already have a stigma attached so if they say "violent bikers confront...." then everybody tuned in. The slashing tires talk is bullshit because even run flat tech not withstanding slashing.
So from where I sit and from what I can see, the driver over-reacted and escalated a bad situation. If there was/is more to it then it will be seen.
