I don't "take a side" here,

Not just took a side:

The crushed biker didn't deserve to be run over just because he was riding stupid.

That's taking sides as the video does indeed indicate he was provoking the incident (watch close and from the begining). His criminianl record for past driving offenses seem to corroborate that to some degree. The biker run over (Edwin Mieses) has a six-page criminal record that began at age

The guy who started the whole thing with the brake check isn't the same guy who got smashed is he? They're different people.

12 with a negligent driving charge and includes jail time for drugs, guns, resisting arrest and other convictions, according to court records. Mieses has a pending case out of Lawrence District Court for driving suspended and subsequent offense. Mieses also has 15 guilty findings for criminal offenses including distribution of cocaine, possession of a firearm without a permit, knowingly receiving stolen property, resisting arrest and several motor vehicle violations, court records show.

Yes, I'm sure all those things are true. I'm just saying, who decides that getting his spine crushed by an SUV is "what he deserved"?

Seems he finaly did get what he deserved and perhaps a good thing he's now of the street.

I would prefer to say that he certainly had this coming for being an asshat - you don't play with fire and not get eventually burned. But what he "deserves" is a totally different matter. I'm not sure what he actually did in this particular incident it's hard to tell.
