This morning I heard one of the bikers say that after initial accident, one biker did take off his helmet and bang the window just like the footage in the end; but , when he looked good through the tint and saw that there was a family in the car, he backed off and walked away. According to that biker, is then driver decided to plow through them. He claims the driver was also talking shit and "acting aggressively. If that's the case then no, he did not have to do what he did. I guess this whole thing is really grey and it's best it comes down to law.
What's interesting to me in this thread though esp Insid's comments about me is how everyone seems to claim that self preservation does not take over most ppl's actions when threatened. This is why ppl should not approach situations letting their emotions rage. If you stomp up to someone yelling and cussing and invading their personal space they're likely to react any kind of way. You try to bang down someone's front door...you're likely to get shot For the record, there are numerous guns in my house, my husband hunts.,.and I haven't shot anyone yet. :kicks
Idk, this just make it look like he gave as good as he got int he acting aggressively department. D8ck slinging never ends well so how does it keep the driver off the hook if he was escalating things just as well? How is he less culpable?
So as long as two wrongs make a right its okay?
Everyone reacts differently under stress and cant always keep a clear head. I agree. But it doesnt mean the way you react is always justified, or should I say in this case legal. I guess you can always justify your choices but it doesnt always mean you are on the right side of the law when you do.
Both sides took it too far, but what I am saying is I am just not willing to cut the driver as much slack as everyone else seems to be.
