Instability,poor handling caused by hasty design,combined with the birthday candle wattage of the typical driver of these bloated chariots of entitlement can explain it.

Got a lot of body shops here in Huntington,seen a lot of crashed and flipped Hummers in their lots.

I think the Hummer driver's going to regret this for a long time. The perps had some justice coming but the law don't look kindly on people assuming the role of meting out punishment.

It's like if you're a store owner and you're getting robbed at gunpoint. You pull out a gun and shoot them, you're probably going to be in the clear. But if you give them the cash, they walk out w/o hurting you, and then you walk out and shoot them in the back, I think you'll be in a world of hurt.

I could easily be wrong on this, but I think this is how the law views it. For example, what if the guy had plastered a group of kids with that behemoth going 60 - 70 through a residential neighborhood? I think that's why vigilante justice is strenuously discouraged -- too much chance of stuff going wrong.

I dont think I'll ever understand why cops are supposed to be the only ones can catch bad guys anyway. They aren't very good at it.

I used to drive cab, and I did a few strong arm collections on some dicks that I knew had the funds but were holding out on me.

I've thought about doing stuff like what that guy did a number of times, though I've never been the victim of an armed robbery.

Still, oh man, the law don't look kindly on that stuff. Can get you hard time. That guy might get a few years behind that. Assault with a deadly weapon. Yeah they were crooks but the law's the law and you can ***** all you want behind bars.

I'd be curious to know how this turns out.

Nate: where did this happen?

I feel sorry for the Hummer. As far as the occupants of the civic, they got what they deserved. They should be paralyzed and also have to go to prison for their crime against a hard working citizen. In jail, I hope they become someone's B.I.T.Ch.E.S
