Bikers Terrorize Family On NY Highway (Update: Biker Family Needs A WAAAmbulance)
UPDATE III: Charges dropped against biker Allen Edwards, who was seen in the video punching the Range Rover's rear window near where Lien's 2 year old child sat. Police had received over 200 complaints about the aggressive bikers prior to the attack.Speculation is the bikers were trying to force vehicles off the road so Hollywood Stuntz participants could perform their stunts on the empty highway. [Ed: Updated with link.]
(Alexian Lien unconscious in street after being dragged from vehicle, beaten, and slashed.)
UPDATE II: Second rider Allen Edwards arrested , facing reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and menacing charges.UPDATE: The rider who obstructed the SUV's path has been arrested.
Motorcyclist Christopher Cruz, 28, allegedly sparked the wild ordeal after he swerved in front of Alexian Lien, 33, on the Henry Hudson Parkway and stopped short, causing Lien to rear-end Cruz on Sunday afternoon, police said. Cruz, of Passaic, N.J. — who was riding with a swarm of dozens of motorcycles that surrounded Lien's Range Rover — allegedly cut the driver off and caused an accident, police said. The biker was charged with menacing, reckless endangerment, reckless driving and endangering the welfare of a child. He was waiting to be arraigned Tuesday.One of the jerks who attacked the SUV ended up getting what he deserved pretty much.
Lien hit the gas to escape, plowing into at least three motorcycles and striking one of the bikers, Jeremiah Mieses, 26 - breaking both the man’s legs, sources said. "The rider was bleeding out of his mouth and nose even though he had a helmet on," said a witness, who asked to remain anonymous. "He was conscious but couldn't move at all."His dad thinks he a victim.
Meises, the 26-year-old biker, was taken to St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, where he was being treated for two broken legs. Friends and family said that doctors feared the biker may never walk again. "My son just got out of surgery. Now we have to contend with his situation that he will never walk again," Meises' father, the Rev. Edwin Mieses of Hazleton, Pa., posted on Facebook.Well, WTF did he think would happen? Ooh he didn't think did he. Sorry Bub, tough lesson to learn the hard way, the very very effing hard way. But um, yeah.
Mieses' wife insists her husband was just trying "to help someone." Riiight. ;) ------Original Post Below-------- When I first heard about this story, I sided with the bikers. It originally came out as an SUV plowing down motorcyclists, killing one, then fleeing the scene. But after viewing the video, clearly the bikers were out of control. Also, it is reported there were only minor injuries, with the driver of the SUV receiving the worst of it from the beating at the end. The incident starts when one of the bikers closely (and deliberately) cuts in front of a black Range Rover and then slams on brakes in what is known as a "brake check." The SUV can't stop quick enough and taps the bike's rear wheel. Watch the video to see what happens next:

This was no "brake check," because the SUV was not tailgating the motorcycle; during a brake check, the person being tailgated has the right-of-way, and simply taps their brakes to show their lights - the motorcycle cut the guy off and came to a near dead stop; rather, this is what some people refer to as a "swoop and squat," in which people deliberately cut in front of a vehicle (usually, much nicer vehicles...like a Land Rover [wink, wink]), then slam on their brakes with the deliberate desire of the person behind them running into them, upon which the "squatter" sues.

Men who ride this kind of motorcycle should *NEVER* be described as "bikers."
The appropriate term-- I've seen no exceptions-- is ASSHOLE.
Don't know what it is, but assholes just gravitate towards this kind of 'cycle. This was a bunch of them just itching to do something "manly." Epic fail.

This is probably one where a Sig P226 with 10 or 12 High Cap Magazines is a better option than the Mossberg 12 gauge with 3 round Chukar limit restriction.

I have little doubt the police know exactly who these asshats are. However I have almost no faith that the courts will do something about their behavior.
Personally, I'd have every single one of their motorcycles impounded to pay for the damage to this guy's SUV and his medical bills. But I doubt that will happen.

Rice Rockets were looking to pick a fight. When I
first saw the "Brake check," it looked like a
classic case of insurance fraud.
When these thugs began swarming the SUV, they
crossed a line by threatening the life of the
driver and anyone else in the vehicle.
I would have used the SUV to turn six of these
assholes into stains on the road, and there would
not be a jury in America who would convict me!
PS I own a 2006 HD FXST Std chopper.

What no "Mad Max" references ???
I would also like to suggest an analogy with the "Critical Mass" bicyclists who enjoy obstructing motor vehicle traffic, especially in Frisco, to make public their specialness.

No accident that "Jay Meezee" grew up in the Dominican Republic nor that his pal that helped break into Mr Lien's SUV was sporting a Guyanese flag sticker on the rear fender of his ride.

Maybe next time they'll stop attempting to Darwin themselves from the gene pool and actually do it right.

to the backseat, where Lien’s daughter was sitting."
