Deleted Videos Show Asshat Bikers Before Range Rover Attack The original uploader of the NYC Range Rover vs. Biker attack video

The original uploader of the NYC Range Rover vs. Biker attack video had seven other videos of the ride uploaded to his YouTube page. Before he deleted them, another user saved them and here they are.

The Footage That the NYC Bikers Didn't Want You to See (7 more!)
http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/the-footage-that-the-nyc-bi...
Naturally, as we've seen so many times in the past, if you upload something of interest on the internet, it's not going to go away just because you removed it. In this case, a Liveleak user purportedly downloaded the videos from Michelinman900's channel and shared them with the world.

"A few videos pulled from the guy's YouTube account which he has now removed because it shows the behavior of the group at what I believe is before the incident with the Range Rover," said userMixedWithFruit.

There's roughly an hour's worth of footage in the seven videos, in which the bikers are more of a nuisance, though, sometimes, they do put themselves and other drivers to risk with their actions. For example, they pass red lights on several occasions (4th video at the 1:20 mark and 6th video at 10:00)), they enter opposite lanes, and ride on pedestrian sidewalks (last video at the 1:15 mark).

What does Bloomberg have to say?

What does Sig-Heil Bloomberg have to say about this incidence?
Is he now supporting a "ban" on motorcycles in NY?
I'm surprised these goons on motorcycles had enough sense to wear a helmet, in many states nowadays, its legal to go without one.
These bikers give all bikers a bad name, I wonder if the warmongering politicians in DC will go after motorcycles like they do guns when someone uses one to commit a crime...
What's ya got to say Graham, McCain, and Sig-Heil Oh-Bummer?
Only an idiot on a motorcycle plays chicken with a car.

Looks like someone played too much

How did Assad get his bikers into the US?

Oh, you said Asshat....

Updated video shows Rover deliberately running over multiple

bikers and then being chased. Updated LiveLeak video: "Range Rover Runs Over Bikers in NYC. - A black Range Rover ran over a group of bikers in New York City during an annual street ride. After running over multiple people at the :50 second mark, he takes off only to run over another person at the 5:00 minute mark. UPDATE: Some further info thanks to numerous users." See video here: @ http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=319_1380522846

The first biker the Rover ran over should not have slowed down in front of the him, true enough; but what the Rover's driver does next is shocking! Was his life being threatened? Is that why he took off like a bat out of hell and ran over the other bikes as well? Its hard to tell, because, again, at the 5 min. mark he runs over another biker who was not threatening him, IMHO, or so it appears.

I can understand why they chased him after watching the updated video -- he was trying to get away, but get away from what, injury to himself, or the injury he caused to others? That's my question.

You may need to watch the video again

You may need to watch the video again, and watch the entire video, including the previously deleted footage.

The one biker brake checked the SUV @ :25 making him stop before :50 It was after something happened that the camera does not get that the driver of the SUV took off @ the :50 mark.

Plus the other previously deleted video shows the bikers acting like complete horses asses prior to all of this and the police say they received over 200 911 calls regarding these bikers' actions.

Interesting reading the comments on that LiveLeak page. Most are siding with the SUV driver.

If ever one of these "gangs"

If ever one of these "gangs" encircles my car and start trying to pull me over I wouldn't know what else to do BUT run some of them over, turning around and runthe rest over?

A gang of 10 on bikes vs a car is like a bag of ping pong balls vs a bowling ball. Worse than bringing a knife to a gun fight.

These thugs all need to be rounded up and shot. Even the ones just sitting around on their bikes passive-aggressively blocking traffic. We aren't living in The Road Warrior or Biker Boyzz or whatever movie they think they are in. Worthless scum, the whole lot of them, ruined a whole family's life for their jollies, not even for personal gain or hatred, just pure random evil.

Good read!

That's exactly how I see it.

They think it's a video game

And you don't need to run them over.

That's not good for your car.

You side bounce them off the road.
Let the guard rails and trees punish them.

Just keep moving

They won't get in front of you after you side bounce a few.

And NEVER slow down.

That's how you get slashed tires.

If only NYC didn't have such

If only NYC didn't have such strict gun control, the driver could have actually defended himself when they started trying to open his door and break his windows.

They went looking for trouble

and found it.

Can't believe there wasn't one police car in this whole fiasco.
(no I am not saying cops are the answer, don't go there.)

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

No kidding. The police

No kidding. The police spokesman said they received over 200 911 calls regarding these bikers. That begs the question, did they decide to sit this one out and hope it would go away?

200 911 calls and these hooligans drve for hours through

city streets? Not one police car responds? As per the videos, not one police car after miles and miles of reckless stunt driving through the city? They must have passed a half dozen police cars on that trek. That does beg the question, the police were aware of the situation, they just decided not to bother enforcing the law and that gave the stunt riders a permission slip to continue. Someone within the department assessed the situation and deemed it not to be a threat worth bothering with. After all, what could possibly go wrong? Well, now we have a kid paralyzed, a family terrorized and people thinking they should be firing bullets at motorcyclists. Rant over, it's OK, you can down vote me now.

Where are the traffic cops?

Some of these vehicles are not licensed for road use, the quads and the 2 stroke motocross bikes. I see them violating the traffic laws, but it still does not justify the SUV driver to deliberately ram the kid with his car and then drive right over him. 2 wrongs don't make a right.

No one need to suffer in

No one need to suffer in pain, but the biker did it to himself. This bikers are violent and was terrorizing the SUV and putting others in danger. I saw the VIDEO it was the biker's fault and SUV ran over because he was scared for his life and his family. He did the right thing.

The SUV driver did not

The SUV driver did not deliberately try to ram the "kid." Watch the videos again. The bikers were being complete a-holes. The "kid" (who is far too old to be called that) was brake checking the SUV while the whole lot had been terrorizing the SUV driver.

From Bostonglobe:

Though Mieses is a Massachusetts resident, he has never had a valid Massachusetts driver’s license for a passenger vehicle and has never applied for a motorcycle license, the Registry of Motor Vehicles said.

Registry records show that Mieses applied for a learner’s permit in 1999 and 2000, but that he never obtained a full license because he failed to pay fines imposed after he was ticketed for speeding in Lawrence in 1999. His last contact with the Registry was in 2001, when he obtained an identification card, registry records show.

Since 1999, he has been ticketed by police 16 times, in Lawrence, Methuen, Roxbury, Andover, and New Hampshire, according to registry records.

In June, the Registry notified the National Driver Register that Mieses was a habitual traffic offender whose right to drive in Massachusetts was revoked until 2017, records show

whose right to drive in

whose right to drive in Massachusetts was revoked

Rights can be revoked now?

Something all you statists out there need to get through your heads is there are no privileges or duties in a free society

That's right

Like if you walk into the grocery store and start firing off shots with your AR-15 just to liven things up.

You lose your 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Is that too complicated?

Like if you walk into the grocery store and start firing off shots with your AR-15 just to liven things up.

Yeah, that happens quite often. Was anyone killed or wounded in your scenario? Were any ones rights violated except the owner of the store due to damage caused by the shooting? I agree it would liven things up, might even get the shooter killed.

You lose your 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

So what you are saying is that rights are not inalienable and the govt can take them away for whatever reason because they are listed in the Constitution?

In a free society what do you think would happen if an idiot or insane person shot up a store? First off you can't look at things the way things are now. My guess is that since people would now be responsible for their own self defense many more people would either open carry or carry concealed. The problem would be solved in short order.

Now to continue your scenario farther, what if he wasn't an idiot or insane person and he was trying to shoot someone who was robbing a cashier but was a terrible shot and people just thought he was shooting for fun?

or, what if he started out as an idiot or insane person and suddenly after bumping his head he became sane and was actually trying to protect a customer who was being held at gunpoint?

or, or , or.................

-So what you are saying is

-So what you are saying is that rights are not inalienable and the govt can take them away for whatever reason because they are listed in the Constitution?

so long as there is "due process of law", legally, yes the govt can take your rights away (i wouldn't really say "take them away" per say, more like you are deprived of them. since rights are inalienable they never can be taken way, but you can be deprived of using them).

Considering the man had multiple outstanding offenses which he seemingly did not object to nor challenge, thereby admitting guilt, I'd say due process of law had been attempted. So legally, his freedom to drive could (should) have been revoked.

I don't think your "shooting up a store" example is very applicable nor similar.

If you watch the video it does seem the gaggle of bikers were harassing the RangeRover prior to the "bump" and the motorcycle obviously moved over and slowed down.

For the record, if I felt that my family was in jeopardy, I'd have ran them all over if they had been in my way.

If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.

16 tickets and he never went to jail?

New York must have some pretty lax traffic and legal enforcement.

Deplorable behavior by the

Deplorable behavior by the bikers throughout. That one who brake checked the SUV got what one can get when doing such stupid things. SUV driver should have been armed.
