Thanks Arcangel . : " Eyewitness, Jedde Kasamba, said he saw a white man on a motorbike stop in front of the car and start shooting at an older black man who then ducked down for his gun and shot back"

Not really surprised that race played a part. Sadly that tends to escalate things even quicker . :'(
Do then, as per IOL's article the biker did not have a gun ..... and was shot. WTF has race got to do with it? We have had a number of stories of bikes been knocked over by cagers and in the main white's, so now it is a race thing and a road rage thing ......... yeeees lets blame apartheid.

Not blaming apartheid . Saying that people tend to have less sympathy with someone that is not like them. So more potential for misunderstandings when 2 people come from different sexes , races , cultures. But yes good point , there is probably a greater divide between bikers and car drivers than between the races.

Its impossible, said pride. Its risky, said experience. 

Its pointless, said reason. Give it a try, whispered the heart.

Johannesburg - A motorcyclist shot dead in an apparent road-rage confrontation in Johannesburg on Friday had assaulted the man who shot him, police said.

The 39-year-old biker and the sedan driver, 44, had an argument while driving on Malibongwe Drive just after Witkoppen Road, said Lt-Col Katlego Mogale.

They both pulled off the road, the biker confronted the driver and the argument got heated.

The biker allegedly assaulted the motorist who in turn fired shots, fatally wounding him.

The motorist was injured. He was treated on the scene by paramedics before being transported to hospital under police guard.

His condition was described as serious.

Police recovered firearms from both men. They had been taken for ballistic testing, said Mogale.

Police had opened a murder docket.

Just hurd the same story on 702. Only added detail was the driver was assaulted by the biker in the face with the butt of his pistol. He was treated for head and face injuries and isnow in police custody.

People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Fork but the reporting in this country is pathetic, the incident happened this morning and the story has gone viral, eye witnesses have been questioned and still there is nothing but vague reporting and more questions than answers..

Useless.  :sip:

I believe you are right. Young lady working for me told me it was a friend of hers and he was generally not a hot head?

I would like to know what that cnut did to provoke the Biker to get into a Rage like that.  Don't misunderstand me I am totally against Road Rage but we get tested every day with these Arrogant Fuckers.

I am sure ALL of us had met our share of idiot drivers. Did you pull a gun on the cager that nearly took you out?

What is the difference between what Oscar did and this oke?

Not my type of "he was such a nice guy..." anyway.

It is sad what happened and I really do not want to judge, but sorry I feel safer in a world without trigger happy testosteronions. It could just as well be your wife sitting in that car...
Take my advice; I don't use it anyway.

seems to not have been good enough today.... irrespective of what the cager did

I've been in situations recently where I wanted to punch people and probably would have 10 years ago.... just to risky these days

Het nog nooit in Gauteng op 'n bike commute nie, maar hier onder is die meeste "dees" wat ek teekom op 2 wiele eerder as 4. Baie van die manne ry volgens hulle eie stel rels en sommige vererg hulle dan sommer as ander ouens nie volgens daardie selfde fiktiewe rels bestuur nie.

BRAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaap!





terug op topic...
Ek was nou onlanks daar bo vir n paar dae...
Die verkeer is k@k; mense het nie maniere nie.
Ek moes maar diep asemhaal elke keer as nog n voertuig doen wat hulle wil. Blatant. Geregtig. Herhalend.
Asof die reels van basiese dinge soos hoe rye werk in gemeenskap- net vir sommige is
Ek sien die ouens op bike wat commute is maar min; mens kan verstaan met die onvoorspelbaarheid van mense se interpretasie van die pad tekens and reels kan dit dodelik raak daar vinnig.

ek het my bike gemis om dit eerder te kon skip...


niks se dit beter as dit nie:
Either way...dis 'n fokkop......en so onnodig!

Not just the 2 blokes involved any more. Im pretty shure they had families and friends and such so in the end it will take its toll on all of them. Stuff like this sucks. old saying (spuit kom te laat)

Sorry for both families.  I just ride: if there is way I go otherwise I wait.  I don't hoot, I don't bang or talk to anyone except if it is courteous.  Soberness will in all cases work in your favour.  If you should think that you are the angriest person on the road, wait until to find someone even more angrier than you.  The consequences are often tragic.

This could serve as a lesson to all who are so quick to want to deal out PK's, let me tell you if I was assaulted in any way, I would retaliate.

If facts here are correct, the motorist can claim self-defence, unless he shot the biker in the back.

So, do you reckon the police and prosecuting authority should have their reports in the press?

i just heard on the news that the car driver was also wounded.
appears like a bit of an 'old wild west' shoot out...

Those who live by the sword die by the sword.
Very sad.

Traffic in the Mother City was somewhat crazy yesterday too. Slow moving, little if any space fro splitting, pizza oven heat.


Wooooooo sssssaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

Shooting someone in the back is not cut and dried, he could be moving to cover to carry on shooting, clearing a malfunction , pausing to reload.
