That is irrelevant, it is not like he flipped them off then obeyed every traffic law. He flipped them off then I am certain proceeded to speed off hoping to invoke a chase, which he did.

For arguments sake though, lets say that the cops were trying to pull him over for nothing other than his obscene hand gesture. What a normal citizen should do is pull over, take the ticket and fight it in court. They would have a very good chance at winning. The problem with this though is that a normal citizen has the mental capacity, and common decency to not flip off a cop in the first place.

In this case I can not say death is a proper punishment, however he did bring it on himself by acting like a jackass, so I do not feel the least bit sorry for the idiot.

A little jail time? I take it you've never done a day or two, it sucks. Never again, never..

Digitizing officers of the law is poor form. It is best to keep one's emotions under check, and ride like a Vulcan....and I mean the green, pointy ear variety.

+1.

Wishing death on another who hasn't done personal harm to you nor anyone else doesn't seem like a remotely human thing to do. Everyone makes mistakes. Even intellectuals make mistakes; even members of this very forum whom I hold in high regard, in fact I can recall a few times on rides where something similar has occurred.


A few days in jail can ruin an entire life depending on the profession/professional license one holds.

Sometimes people do not even know if they are being chased if there are no lights/sirens and they are tucked on the freeway, it has happened before. Clearly this wasn't the case in this scenario.

I agree with him as well, wishing death on someone for them being a jackass is wrong. I however will not feel sorry for him if he does die. Yes it will be tragic and I will feel sorry for his friends and family though.
