    These bike riders are really dangerous in this neighborhood. They drag race up Broadway, running red lights and have come dangerously close to hitting pedestrians including small children and the elderly. They’ve had terrible accidents WSH causing death and injury. You can see them running the red light at speed in the beginning of the video. if the police they need to bring the bike down in order to prevent further injury and that is how bad it has gotten. I think they showed amazing restraint.

      There’s a no chase policy in effect due to bikers fleeing and causing accidents if the cops don’t chase a biker would not have to flee and cause that cops should not chase it poses other dangers

    Hearing the comments of the young adult is so sad to me. This seems to be a tragic accident with a kid who is using an illegal vehicle. What we needed here is an adult to help calm the instigator.
    I wonder who he is.

    These bikers are incredibly dangerous on my street too. They drag race on Amsterdam all hours of the day and night. I live near the park and we’ve almost been hit by these bikers, they e caused car accidents. This neighborhood is very dangerous and it’s getting so much worse. Gun violence, in the park after dark, why isn’t the park locked at sundown? Drugs and alcohol are prevalent and the police have a very hard job. These bikers disregard the law that are in place to keep people safe.

    Did this man have a license to ride the bike? Look him up -believe he’s been arrested twice for this-riding on public streets with no license or plates–and a warrant for his arrest.

    If you’re going to act as a liberal, then be liberal with the details. In addition, how did the cops “hit” him?

    You forget-socialism means tyranny with no voice. Be careful what you wish for.
