CRITICAL MASS BRAZIL - Run over all cyclists

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

CRITICAL MASS BRAZIL - Run over all cyclists

Good night

During Critical Mass in Brazil, trampled
all cyclists because the traffic here is very dangerous.
See the story and watch the video.
The driver will not be punished.

I hope he goes to jail, or better yet let's put him on a bicycle and run him over with a truck.

If that had happened to a CM ride in the US I'd be giddy with joy, but I have no idea what Brazil's situation is.

That was crazy and horrible.

I didn't have a quick way to translate the words to English and I really didn't want to know the details anyhow. But I have to ask...any deaths from all that mayhem? Then again I want to know, but don't want to know....ya know?

Absolute tragedy. I'd say execute the driver as slowly and painfully as possible, BUT I'd need to know more about the driver's circumstances. What if they got a call that a direct family member or spouse just died or was in immediately danger. What I'm saying is maybe he/she was in total manic crisis when it was decided to resort to that level of violence.
