What would you do if your family was threatened by a group of bikers


Recently, an incident occurred where a group of bikers appear to antagonize the driver of an SUV. One biker stares in driver window than pulls in front of SUV & intentionally slows causing SUV to bump him. The bikers than all stop on the road & surround the SUV threatening the driver whose wife & child are in the SUV with him. The SUV takes off running over bikers. The bikers chase, catch him, pull him out of the SUV and beat him. What would you do under the same circumstances to protect your family?

    I mean no offense by referring to them as "bikers." My brother has ridden a bike for 40 years. But if anyone fit the stereotypical tag of "biker," I think these guys did. They appeared to be looking for trouble & they got it - not as imagined.

    Running over the bikers looked gruesome, but I understand why he did it. He was surrounded & under attack with a wife & 2 year old in his SUV. The result may be sad, but the biker asked for it by recklessly putting a family in fear 4 their li

    Not being there, it is difficult to say what the right approach would be. The instigating biker was hit by the SUV. A smile might have appeased 1 or 2 bikers, but this was a gang of bikers with a mob mentality. I think a smile would not have helped.

    Brilliant! Love it! You're amazing! I once confronted two MPs at Ft. Lewis. Skinny me (at the time) got out of my car in my short shirt/ heels, put my hands on my hips and said, "WHAT!?" (My husband had had a long day on base n I was picking him up.

    The report is the SUV driver called 911 over & over. The bikers surrounded his family & hacked at his tires & pounded on his SUV. The SUV driver was in fear for the life of his wife & child. I can't blame him with 20 some angry men at

    I believe the bikers forced the SUV to a stop by surrounding him. It's a situation that shouldn't have happened. Macho attitudes & cocky behavior frightened a family and cost a biker the ability to walk.

    I believe the bikers surrounded his SUV. I assume he was fearful for his family & felt he had no choice but to go over them. I can understand. If by myself I would have stood my ground. With my family, I would take no chances.

    You better watch the video again & read the story. The biker intentionally pulled in front of the SUV & slowed causing the bump. The bikers THEN surrounded the stopped SUV. THEN the SUV took off. The bikers were at fault, not the SUV driver.

    Good advice! It is best to avoid trouble & not look for it. Macho egos tend to attract other macho egos & the combination leads to nothing but trouble. Who knows, might have been eye contact & or words between biker & SUV driver.
