Not only did they harass him, damage the suv, and smash out the window, they pulled him out of the car beating him badly in front of his family. The second the biker smashed out that window and tried to drag the driver out, he had reason to defend himself. I have a carry permit in 35 states, but unfortunately, my home state won't issue unless there's a "reason". Self defense should be a good enough god dam reason. I keep a knife in my center console and a hammer on the passenger floor. You better believe it, that if this guy smashed my window and grabbed me, he would be getting a hammer to the side of his head. I'll take the assault charge if it means defending my wife and child. Yes, they only beat him up but I say that lightly. If your wife and child are in the car, who knows what could have happened. Every biker who participated in this attack deserved to recieve a 158 grain hollow point to the chest. I feel for this guy I really do. Bloomberg wants it this way for new Yorkers. Apparently, a man who lies bloody in front of his wife and kid is morally superior to a man who shoots to protect his family.
