Found this on the web, ...Ask yourself "What was his intent opening the door as the car passed the bicycle?" If you ask me he had it coming to him, its CARMA He opened the door and hit the child who looks to be all of 10 years old, riding his bike(you can hear the contact of the car door hitting the bike) he is then pulled out the open door on to the pavment and into a parked car.
If anyone finds any more on this please post it

Disclamer: This video is not for the faint or weak.

Yah I think he did try to door the kid on the bike.
however, if you notice when he fell out of the car,
his head hit the parked car. . .
and why was it being videotaped? was the whole thing
some stupid "punk'd", or jackass trick?
either way, the kid who fell out of the car
probably was badly hurt. I don't think anyone
deserves that.

Yeah, that'll happen sometimes. You really gotta watch out for those door handles. They have a tendency to open the door.

If you check the video at the end, the other car had stopped and it rear lights were on, it looks like the car was going the other way when it happened. Most likely it ran over the kid's neck after his chin clocked the bumper.

I hope that videotape gets subpoenaed by the lawyer of the owner of the now-dented car.

The car with the lights on was the car the idiots were in
(I think). the car the kid fell into appeared to be an older
darker coloured model (red?). I don't think it was moving.

The kids face hit the rear of the brownish parked car. It seems the impact of hitting the cyclist near the fulcrum of the door forced it to swing open. What a jackass.

thats complete crap -anyone who tries to door a 10 year old in my opinion deserves to have their head repeatedly slammed on any nearby solid object and I would be happy to assist.

No, he didn't deserve falling out and getting hurt - he deserved to die!

I'm not saying he isn't a complete lowlife
but physically injury? possible death?

Royalflash you surprize me given your stance
in a few other threads.

If you remember, a bunch of teenagers knocked a priest off a bike a while back, he sustained a lot of pain and suffering, almost died, sued, and got 750,000 in damages.

Yea, they're parents got hammered, having to pay about $60k each. I hope these kids don't get off easy either.

It should show up on any job resume too.

Have you ever committed a felony? Yes. I hit a kid on a bicycle with the door of a speeding car.

DENIED.

This clip is really bad. Even worse than the one showing a mail order bride consuming her own feces.

For the record: I almost prefer if the dip$hit lives...you think his new face will be made of titanium?

oh snapple that was awesome!

Anyone who intentionally hurts children deserves whatever punishment and torture can be inflicted on 'em. This goes for dumb teenagers, priests, anyone.

It was a stupid kid and he probably got seriously hurt. He may have been stoned out of his mind.

Think! Maybe at that age you were just as stupid. Except now you are not f*cked up for life or dead. No, he did not deserve that.

uhh, he attempted with all intentions to hurt a child.

If that was your child he tried to hurt, would you feel the same way?
