You have to admire his dedication to being a moron. It's also good to see him setting such a good example to his child!

Can you just imagine the fear factor with a knucklehead like that comming at you. Apparently the offender is handing himself in today, will be interested to see what happens, might be an update on today tonight,tonight. Imagine what a pea brain like that would do if he got annoyed with you riding a bike. Dead set troglodite :shock:

He should lose his right to be a human being! Do we all need to fit front and rear cameras to all our cars now? Has it really got that bad?

Unfortunately that will probably be the extent of that lunatics punishment.

A few years in a psych ward is where he should be.

It's more than road rage. The victim is an ex Police Officer, which in itself does not mean a lot, but it may explain how calm he was when the <LANGUAGE> was hitting the fan. There are a variety of offences that would suit if it happened in NSW. It is intimidation, and believe it or not assault, because the victim only has to believe they are going to be assaulted for the offence to be proven. There is menacing driving x about 20, negligent driving x 30, not to mention the maliscious act using a vehicle to cause damage. Mal damage on the windscreen, the list could go on, but he could be looking at serious Goal time. The community does not need mental time bombs like this on the street, hopefully the Queensland judicial system will deal with this danger to society.Tim

Heard about this from one of my workmates a couple of days ago. The victim is her next door neighbor.

He is a former cop, and will no doubt be well looked after.

I liked how the Police told the driver to go back and make sure the nutter was alright :roll:
