I hate road rage, I truly do. The idea that you’re sharing the road with someone who, for whatever reason, might decide that it’s perfectly ok to kill you, just because he had a bad day and thinks that there’s a defense that will allow him to get away with it? Not cool.
In this case that person is a stupid 18yr old who decided to terrorize a cyclist, screaming at him to “Get off the road or I’ll kill you.” Not an idle threat, he apparently actually did force the guy off his bike and chase him into the woods, hurling rocks and such at him.
And then Karma joined the fun and laid some serious smackdown upon this moron, because the cyclist was a police officer who simply noted the license plate, then had the idiot arrested. “Can’t I just apologize?” junior was heard whining as he was handcuffed.
The worst part of the story is where he got a suspended sentence and a 2 year ban from driving a car. How about taking him at his word, treating it like attempted murder, and putting him in jail for, I dunno, ever?
