If this doesn’t smack of CYA…

what does?

It’s a dramatic case built on amateur video that went viral — footage of motorcycles swarming around an SUV on a highway, the driver plowing over a biker to escape and a high-speed chase that ends with the driver pulled out and beaten in front of his family….

Nearly two weeks later, some bikers are suggesting SUV driver Alexian Lien, knowingly or not, instigated the confrontation off-camera earlier by clipping one of the bikes in a rally on the Henry Hudson Parkway in Manhattan.

“Hey, our first bullshit defense didn’t work! Hurry up and think of another one!”

Seriously, if this all went down that way, why not come out and say it in the beginning? You know what everyone would have been saying if this had involved guns instead of motorcycles?

“They are lying liars who LIE! Lock them up and throw away the key!”

    Sorry but that excuse won’t fly anyways. They had the chance to call the police and let law enforcement deal with it.
    Normally I don’t like the phrase “Taking the law into their own hands” but this is one of the times it was and is applicable.

    Regardless of how it started; they are the ones who kept it going and provoked the subsequent encounters. Unless they are claiming to be raged filled unthinking beings in capable of controlling their actions — in which case they shouldn’t be on the streets — it doesn’t matter if Lien clipped someone or not.

      Yep. In fact, I think you could say they pretty much made their own law in that situation. And they need to be held accountable — especially the off-duty cops that Crotalus mentioned.

        Your original point hits the nail on the head – regardless of what may or may not have happened – the escalation was SOLELY the doings of the biker gang. The ‘fact’ that they just now came up with this supposed ‘reason’ I mean excuse, shows that it is merely a lawyer trick to attempt to spread or absolve the guilt.

    The kicker here is some of those bikers were off-duty cops
