Yup ... They are gonna look at him and say he has conditioned himself like a cage fighter for starters. Plus you really can't or even should keep smacking someone who is shall we say done fighting.:nono:Regardless of fault or circumstances, the dude he beat up is gonna get paid.
Unfortunately, a lot cyclists get hit by motorists every year. I've been hit five times, mostly when living in Oakland/Berkeley and with minor injuries. There are two issues here Jeff Smock's response and the public image of cyclists. In the average citizens mind I'm not sure these can or will be separated. I'm sure Mr. Smock regrets his response. He just erased all the good he has done in society. That sucksI recall reading stories of motorists hitting and injuring cyclists, but law enforcement doesn't hold the motorist accountable for anything. No? I guess punching someone is worse than driving into someone.
I think we all need to wait until we get some real facts about what actually happened before making any judgements.
The first thing that stood out to me when I read this article was the strong anti-cyclist tone that the article was written with. The next thing I noticed is that it was written by Mark Prado the same guy who wrote this gem of a piece: Rogue trails, vandalism vex county park officials as plan is considered - Marin Independent Journal
Reading between the lines, another version could be: A guy driving a truck slams a guy on a bike with his side view mirror, then when confronted the driver of the truck is not only unapologetic for nearly taking another mans life, he decides to stop his car, take off his seat belt, step out of his car in the middle of an intersection and engage another man in mutual combat.
I am not saying this is what happened, and I am not condoning violence of any kind.
What I am saying is the story seems very one sided...
I'm sure he regrets it, but his actions just mean he's human. I disagree that he's erased any positive actions in the past. "A good act does not wash out the bad, nor the bad the good."I'm sure Mr. Smock regrets his response. He just erased all the good he has done in society. That sucks
