[Hull Daily Mail] A teenage boy was hit in the face by a stranger on a bicycle. Police are appealing for information after a 15-year-old boy was hit by a man in Hessle.
The boy had been standing with a group of friends when they were approached by two men, who were riding bikes, close to the Hull Road and Buttfield Road junction.
One of the men, who were unknown to the group, spoke to the boy before assaulting him, inflicting injuries to his lip.
Is nothing sacred anymore? I mean I know all bicyclists are needlessly violent rage machines. We’ve pretty much established that over the life of this blog. But usually their assaults are a little more understandable. Even when they attack old people, I guess you could sort of justify it. After all, old folks have had decades and decades on this earth to make enemies. No shock that SOMEONE might take a shot at them every now and again.
But kids? Now they’re just riding around in gangs and attacking kids? Sorry bicyclists but I just can’t justify it. Just no possible way to get around the fact that a couple of pedal jockeys just rode on up to a kid, taunted him, and clocked him right in the fucking jaw.
And it’s right out of the bicyclist playbook, too. For a group of people who are all such walking temper tantrums, they sure are a bunch of pussies. I mean do you think these guys would have dared to attack anyone if they were on foot? No fucking chance. Fact is the only time you’ll ever see one of these people attack anyone is when they can pedal away as fast as their little legs can move. No such thing as fight or flight when it comes to bicyclists. It’s fight THEN flight, and only if “throw one punch and run like hell” counts as “fight.”Follow @footstepsfaIco
