NYPD police stood by while driver was savaged
Short summary: Alexian Lien [name corrected -- hat tip to the commenter] and his family were driving down the Hudson Parkway behind a group of motorcyclists. One of the bikers apparently felt the family were encroaching on their "space" and so pulled in front of him and hit the brakes (it was no coincidence; you can see him looking back over his shoulder to gauge the result). Lien bumped him, and the rest of the motorcyclists began to attack Lien, smashing his window with a helmet, slashing his tires.
He gunned the engine, went over one of the motorcyclists, inflicting serious injuries, and the chase was on. They eventually caught up with him, and inflicted a serious beating
Yes, Bloomie, we know ... your police will protect us. You can reflect that it's a good thing the victim didn't have a gun, because this way there were no gun deaths to report.
