      how exactly does someone become a pedestrian on the parkway?

        getting off your motorcycle (or out of your vehicle) for the purpose of confronting another motorist would make him guilty of road rage assault before he touched the victim.

        Based on what I've seen, it looks like self defense. We have a legal system to investigate and sort it out. Most likely there will be one or more trials (or plea bargains.) From what I've seen it doesn't appear the SUV driver will be a defendant.

      •  He fell off his bike. (0+ / 0-)

        The SUV driver was trying to protect his family and himself.
        The injured "biker" got what he tried to give. Tough.

      •  there's a parked bike: guy intended to try to talk (0+ / 0-)

        things over, maybe de-escalate the situation, and the SUV driver slams on the gas, smashes the bike, knocks the guy down and runs him over.

        Don't know if he saw that guy or not, but he was "afraid" of the bikers around his vehicle. So he tried to kill one ... and the rest of them didn't want to see him get away with that.
