Someone got shot at with a BB....

Just picked this up in the road forum....don't know what to make of it -- it's a very well travelled route by cyclists as most of you know, and I've not heard of problems on SPDR before.

How do these people think this is acceptable behaviour? ^*&^ing unbelievable.

I got shot in the arse with a BB gun at 35mph

Freakin' scary! Poor guy!

People who behave like that make me crazy-angry -- it's so pointless and stupid. I hope he files a police report so when they do it again (my $$ is on them as repeat offenders), and when they get caught, they'll be less likely to be able to escape justice.

Sh*t, not again. I remember a similar incident discussed on the GPC list just last year. Same deal. BB shot in the ass. East Bay IIRC, but I can't remember where precisely. I'll be damned if it's the same guys.

f00kin punks. Keeping eyes out for that old brown pickup truck. Where's the fuming smiley when you need it?
