    This is one of those times where high cap firearms might be necessary. 50 assailants? Sheesh, that's more than patrolmen could probably wind up handling if they decide to fight it out. If they are right about the numbers (and no offense, but most civilians are not trained to be good observers, so I take that with a grain of salt) but either way it was a number high enough to cause serious problems.

    I don't know if I could maintain full control of my truck if a brick came through my window.

    I would be reading tag numbers to the 911 operator.

    1911 Packer I think the lic relay is a definite ah duh. I honestly hadn't thought about that when I first read the post, and I wonder if these hoodlums had any tags? If they are going out doing this you would think that they wouldn't, but then again...

    I would think that the problem would come from them getting in front of you and slowing to the point of stopping. If you hit them from the rear, then you might be deemed at fault. Once the brick comes through the window, all bets are off because you can't see too well, and you're in fear of your life and that of your family. Damn sure don't want to stop until the cavalry (LE) arrives. Do what you gotta do to survive.

    Five bucks says at least one the bikers was/is armed with a handgun. Agreed that once a brick comes through my window, the survival light is lit in my vehicle.

    Owner of a lowered/track prepped Acura here. If there were that many bikes, first thing I'd do is brake check the ones behind me or do a quick "lane change" to bump the ones actually next to be off their bikes,depending on there the majority are.

    My car is too low to phyiscally go OVER a bike,but it could dang sure know alot of them OFF their bikes

    Lost control

    I would think once the brick came thru or damaged the window, I "lost control" of my car and not sure what happened next (grin).

    mow them down with any and all means necessary and available to exit this threat including use of deadly force with vehicle and firearm.

    I dont know guys, but do these antics rise to the level of deadly force? It doesnt matter if you use your car or a gun, but using deadly force needs to be justifable. You are walking a fine line in this case.

    Ability -- sustained proximity and swarming behavior.
    Opportunity -- is an attack possible.
    Intent -- kicking and the brick!

    Deadly force is in play.

    Evade, defend and attack as needed to try to survive.

    Rule 1 -- Survive or take'm with you.

    There are no other rules.

    I see this from the other side, being a rider of a "Japanese make" motorcycle (as opposed to a "Japanese-model"), the same way we as defensive-carriers look at the articles about people using "assault weapons" to defend themselves. Parts may have been blown out of proportion, I wasn't there, and a lot of sportbike riders put up with a lot of bad driving around us. What they did was inexcusable, but a lot of near-hits occur where we almost get killed on a daily basis because someone didn't head-check, or is on a cell phone and starts drifiting over, et c., add up and you get outlaw types like these morons who watched too many movies about Hell's Angels.
    I've eaten pavement and know that every one of those bikes is a life, I would do my best to evade without trying to hit them. Although, I'm on my bike all the time, so unless I am in my car I probably won't have a problem.
