This Is Terrifying: Enraged Motorist Plows Through Crowd of Cyclists
Consider this a lesson in how not to take out your anger. On Friday, Porto Alegre, Brazil, like many other cities around the world, held Critical Mass, a group bicycling event that also functions as an anti-car protest. Well, one motorist, Richard Neis, didn’t like it. But he took that dislike to a horrifying extreme in response:
Yes, he literally ran over cyclists with his car. Early reports said at least nine were injured, but later that estimate was upped to 16. This info from Sky News, though, is a relief:
Despite the shocking scenes that were captured on video, all the victims were discharged from hospital shortly after the incident, according to local media reports.
Of course, we hope that still holds true. As for Neis, he’s claiming self-defense, and his lawyer said his rampage started after being threatened by other riders. However, we have to go with their word to determine whether or not that’s true, whereas we have irrefutable video evidence that Neis plowed his car through a crowded street of cyclists.
And, though this shouldn’t need to be said, we’ll say it anyway – even if Neis was threatened, this would certainly not justify using a potentially-extremely-dangerous vehicle as a weapon. All that’s left to do is be discouraged something like this would happen at all (and that it’s not even the first time Critical Mass riders have been victimized by violent outbursts), as well as be glad, if a little amazed, that it seems no one was seriously hurt.
