Another cyclist punched off bike - different ending

A friend of mine lives on East Side. He is over fifty like me. He likes to cycle over the high level bridge to the Mud Hens games, he stays in good shape . Last week he came over the bridge . On Clayton st. 4 teenagers were riding opposite of him. As they passed , one of them swung his fist at him. He moved his head , but the fist caught him on the side of his head , stunning him and drawing blood from his ear. He stopped his bike in shock , the teen came towards him with another blow. My friend says the teen was smaller than him , but there were four . He caught the young man's fist and pushed him back . He then took the youngster to the ground , pounding his face with two punches , blood coming out. The others looked on , stunned at my friend's bold reaction to this assault. Unkind words were exchanged, my friend left quickly.
My friend said this all happened very quickly , he was scared the whole time , what if all four decided to jump in ? what if they had a gun? He rode to the police station, filed a report , then continued on the 5/3 field. Some officers on bikes there rode to the scene .
How did we get to this level of disrespect ? and how do we get back to the way it used to be?

One person at a time

if the Police happened upon the scene your friend would be in big trouble for assaulting a minor. No matter what the circumstance was. Curious to know if this was an altercation between Black and White.

If a minor attacks you, you have every right to defend yourself....

To the second part....


“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

It must be society's fault, as bleeding heart liberals blather rather than face harsh reality and stop being racist with dumbed down, double standards, and demand Blacks start being responsible, doing us all a big favor.

Looks like the Black community hasn't changed much since their riots a few years ago:

Black Mark on Toledo

solve this ongoing repeat problem. Yes , my friend is white , these boys are black. I know of 4 cases of black on white assaults related to cycling

It takes a village to raise a black kid because too many of them don't know who their fathers are and the only discipline they receive, if any, is from police officers or the criminal justice system. Sad, isn't it? But harsh reality liberals fail to face and we all suffer for it. The hypocritical "African American community" (what an oxymoron) only like to get all riled up and march and holler over typical false accusations they love to make against people of white color to further shake down white guilt, always failing to take responsibility for their own, always trigger happy like the mad professor Gates, Jr. (who instead of being castigated or apologizing for his false accustaions, gets rewarded with a beer at the White House).

I carry, what a way to level the playing field.

Pity to have to do this, but there are many different varieties of pepper spray out there that you can clip to your belt or an arm band so they're readily available.

Kinda makes you wanna drive your bike over carty's fuggin flowerbeds, doesn't it?

If you wanna save some bucks, I just read an article where wasp and hornet spray is just as if not more effective - they advertise a 20-30' spray. Might be kinda bulky to carry on a bike - handy for home use tho!

Hey, that's EXCELLENT advice, Billy. Insect spray is commonly available, can be obtained without license, can be clipped to the bike like pepper spray is, no one would get suspicious at seeing it, it can be used for actual inspects too along your bike ride, and finally ... it gets rid of more pests than advertised. 8^D

Give yourself a gold star.

However, I've heard of people advising people to carry oven cleaner spray. DON'T DO THAT! I mean it. You can destroy eyes with oven cleaner fluid. Self defense may include the RISK of maiming or killing your opponent, but intentionally doing so IS A CRIME.

Repatriation is the long term solution. As for the spiritual solution to these perilous Times of the Gentiles, we all need repentance and get back into our proper places and countries. Even though this plain truth receives such a hostile response from hateful liberals, it needs to be said because reality won't go away just because some want to deny the facts.

You can 'what if' yourself to death. In this case the attack was stopped and the honor students left the scene, doubtless to report for their volunteer work at the homeless shelter.

In addition to water and first aid, pack pepper spray, knife and pistol. Remember your goal is to stop the attack. If you can do that by hosing down the attackers with pepper spray, you haven't killed anyone and you can go about your business.

Oh, but what if they have a gun! What if you have a gun. What if you're a good shot. What if they aren't bullet proof. In this case, the last 'what if' is: What if the police arrive and I'm knee deep in bodies and brass? Repeat these three things as the only litany you can say until you have your attorney: 1. I have done nothing wrong. 2. They tried to kill me. 3. I want my lawyer.

You can give your name, but do not give anything else. Nothing, nada. Even the question of, 'Is this your bike?' or some seemingly innocent question should get the litany: I want my lawyer. The police will bait you, threaten you, lie to you and coerce you to get you to talk. Don't.

just say I want my lawyer and then shut up, period. If you say anything to the cops, especially after being read Miranda, they can claim that you initiated the conversation and restart questioning you and then anything you say will be used aginst you.

I stand corrected. LtLOP has it right, reminding me that simpler is often better. This may be especially true when dealing with adversarial police.

I want my lawyer.

Liberals are trying to make self-defense illegal. DON'T LET THEM.
