Anyone who bikes in the city has most definitely been in a situation where a pedestrian or a driver fucks up your flow. Alot of times its their fault - but alot of times its ours. The worst I've ever done was kick a few car grills in, punch a few side mirrors, scrape a couple a doors with my barends - and then forget about it minutes later as you move it along.
If you commute by bike every single day you're bound to get worked up and heated over some dumb shit, like..... someone in your way causing you to slow your roll, people thinking bikelanes are passing lanes or making you almost die by cutting you off something fierce. And there has been plenty of moments where I wanted to throw down - and quite frankly, this is exactly the reason why I wear my downhill carbon knuckle insert gloves when commuting - even if its hot as fuck - carbon knuckles to the face would hurt AND when you smash someones sideview mirror with a single punch and zero pain to self, it impresses them and makes them NOT want to fuck with you any longer. You can also just spit on them. I see a car parked in a bike lane from a block away, I get them glands working, clearing my sinus a bit, really get a deep one out, let it spray. I even got heated enough to spit on a cop car that was parked in the bike lane after carefully (but not carefully enough) making sure that the fat lazy cops were not around their police cruiser parked sloppily next to a wide open parking spot. Sure I got pulled over 5 blocks later by some pissed off pigs who gave me a summons for "spitting in public" - which was dropped anyway. Street justice was served with no blood spilled.
BUT this dude took it to the extreme. It didn't seem that he was injured/hurt/threatened by the asian dude - even if he caused him to crash - he should have rode away, he could have pushed the dude. Hell, if it HAD to be done, he may even slap the old fella, but a heavy ass metal U-Lock to the side of the head, 4 times over, with full swing extension and all, beat down style? Thats tooooo much. Way too much. This is how people go to jail for assault with a weapon. Surely this lil youtube vid is not helping much either in the "un-identification" process.
What do ya'll think? Lets take this discussion to the comments.
