Reports: NYC Cops Rode With Bikers Who Beat SUV Driver
Been watching the videos from the assault by bikers on the SUV van driver. AFAIK the driver was the victim of a gang assault and intimidation right from seconds before a biker pulled in front of him and hit the brakes to try and force him to slow or stop.

Then that driver winds up nearly killing a biker as a legitimate act of escape. Not assault, or vehicular assault. That happened when a biker tried to force his way into the van. An act of escape from a clear threat, and he almost killed a guy. Cutting to the end of the chase where they bashed in his window, honestly if I had a gun in that spot I would have pulled & shot that particular biker and escaped again shooting again if another gang dude stayed in the way or blocked me. Screaming for 911 however I could.
Clear cut case of a man in a vehicle with his family is desperate need of effective defense given the only cop involved was riding with the bikers undercover and stayed out of the fray. W T F ? ! Asshole. That is a clear cut case for vehicular CCW. That cop should be fired for maintaining cover.
Yes these incidents are rare. So rare some claim guns make no sense for defense. Right. Look at those videos, the fact the biker gang was already being infiltrated by police and see if you think a gun in that mans had to defend his family would be out of line. Isn’t depending on those numbers just playing favorable odds? Fine if that includes an awareness of chosen vulnerability to lethal assault.
At least one New York police detective was riding with a motorcycle pack that chased and beat an SUV driver Sunday after a road-rage altercation but he did not intervene to stop the attack, law enforcement sources told news organizations.
One cop was an undercover officer who told superiors he did not get involved or call 911 because he did not want to be exposed, the Daily News and the New York Post reported. Sources told the Post he was not investigating the bikers but waited until Wednesday night to reveal he witnessed bikers attack 33-year-old Alexian Lien in front of his wife and 2-year-old daughter.
