    Lubbock man accused of terrorizing cyclists on biking trail

    (2/21/07 - LUBBOCK, TX) - A Lubbock man who claims he was trying to protect the environment stands accused of terrorizing cyclists by stringing wire between two trees on a mountain biking trail.

    A Lubbock County grand jury indicted David G. Knape, 62, on Tuesday on one count of attempted aggravated assault with a weapon and one count of attempted aggravated assault with intent to cause serious bodily injury.

    Investigators say Knape strung a wire between two trees at Canyon Lake No. 6 in eastern Lubbock with the intent of hurting passing cyclists.

    Riders who use the trails say they have seen traps there for at least a year, the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported in a story for its Wednesday editions.

    Cyclist Dewayne Wallace said he has seen bottles, nails, and large rocks pushed into the trail and had been watching for the person responsible for about six months. Wallace said he reported Knape to police on Nov. 6 when he saw him stringing wire.

    Knape told investigators he was trying to protect the environment.

    Protect the environment by killing and maiming? Ya, makes sense to me. Did he forget that animals use those trails too? Glad he's behind bars.

    that's why i hate radical environmental groups. they're some of the most twisted people in the world. ELF, Greenpeace, PETA too.

    true justice would be if a bear attacked him while he was setting those traps

    I'd like to know why he was not charged with attempted murder?

    He could have easily killed someone.

    why do these people think it's such a great idea to protect the environment to the point that we can't even get out and enjoy it? Preservation of a thing just for preservation's sake is circular logic.

    I think he is just a demented person who has something against cyclists. The whole "protecting environment" thing is just a lame excuse.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
    Stay calm and bring a towel.

    Don't kid yourself, I saw nothing in the article to indicate that he has spent any time behind bars yet or that he will in the future. Depending on any criminal history and how much money he has for an attorney, I would not be surprised if he received probation & community service. Hopefuly a condition of his sentence will be that he is prohibited from entering any parks, trails, etc. used by cyclists.

    Exactly. He just used the first snivel he could pull out of his nether regions. Sorry if I'm stereotyping, but 62, hating bicyclists, and from Texas doesn't fit the "eco-freak" profile.
