Sweet Justice

So this is a thread from another forum I'm on that I just couldn't pass up on spreading the story around. We've all had our moments where someone messed with our bike or at least we thought someone did or at bare minimum has read a thread about it happening to someone else and felt our blood start to boil. Most of those stories end up no where, with no justice brought to the guilty party or inappropriate actions taken by the victims.

At any rate I thought I would pass it on because its a really really great read, but I won't spoil it at all.

Anyway here is the link. Enjoy:

http://www.svrider.com/forum/showthread.php?t=151964

BTW I would definitely suggest A) read the whole thing, but its long so B) give yourself at least 30-45 min to take it all in.

yea i didnt read the whole thread just that post, i was wondering too.


i would assume that video evidence of that guy doing the dirty would be more than enough to make him liable for the damages... seems like an open and shut case, but yea, where is the prestige, the finish, the justice!

ok, i went ahead and read the last two pages of the 28 or so...


seems the OP still has not resolved this, and it started sometime in Nov 2011
..

so confirmed, no sweet justice just yet...


did notice that the OP had said the defense would use things like past convictions, drinking and driving, smoking weed or like that against him...
tbh i don't see how the victims past criminal record has anything to do with the charges against a man who is on video destroying somebody else's property.

Yea, the OP misunderstood what he heard or was told. His past history is irrelevant to this action and would or should be objected to in court, but I doubt any lawyer would be so stupid as to try to bring that up to attack the plaintiff’s credibility.

Okay well its sweet justice in the works, but certainly more than most get when their bike is damaged by an unknown perp. (Spoiler alert) I mean the guy was arrested and is being brought to criminal court. When I started reading it I expect the police to just go and tell the offender to stop being mean and that would be it.

Its really only interesting if you read the whole story unfold. Its like any good movie or book. If you just read the ending it never seems that good.

Yeah I didn't really get the whole car thing or where the the lady came up with the license plate # or any of that, but hey its NYC, there's a lot of crazy hair-brained characters there.

I'll bump once its all resolved.

The sweet justice must be the fact that the criminal has been caught red handed, and on video tape? That sucks, and it's very sad we have to deal with this non-sense.


I just recently went thru this very scenario, only there are no cameras near my bike, and some hole kicked in my right turn signal :/ I have no clue why any one would do this.

That's really dude. Sorry to hear about that.

There was someone who posted a pretty insightful and philisophical statement in that thread about why someone feels the need to alienate motorcyclists like this.

Pretty much it boiled down to the idea that people see motorcycles as risk takers and those that have broke away from the molds of social norms (i.e. rebels). They're jealous of this because well lets face it life is pretty boring if you never take any risks. Therefore they alienate us. The motorcycle is a representation of this rebellion and therefore they take their jealously and envy out on that representation.

Seemed reasonable to me. A little idealisitic and overly complicated in most cases probably (I adhear to the, "some people are just " priniciple), but this sounded a lot better.

Also yeah I'm not really sure where everyone is getting so confused on this. The dude got arrested and there is irrefutable rock solid evidence against him. Yes the full extent of the justice still has not been served, but the fat bald dudes life certainly is taking a detour he probably wish he wouldn't have started down.
