    The usual anti-cyclist comment trolls are on board.

    Oh man what a way to be remembered - witnesses described him as "curled up like a hedgehog". :oops:

    I love the way people casually ignore the
    He then pushed the cyclist into a nearby garden, where witnesses described him as "curled up like a hedgehog".

    Welch punched the man several more times and kicked him in the leg and stomach.

    A smack in the mouth is one thing, dragging someone off and putting the boot in quite another.
  • Serves him right, plus he hired a guy called Barry White to represent him.

    That's near enough what the driver who attacked me did. Except I hadn't clipped his wing mirror, I'd been hit by him as he half-overtook and then veered left to avoid oncoming traffic.

    The police asked him to write a letter in which he said he 'regrets that we bumped into each other'. :roll: All caught on headcam btw....

    Yeah, the trolling is quite normal for the Plymouth Herald and often a good and rich source of "amusement" :shock: . There are some right cnuts in Janner land where some people think such behaviour is both normal and acceptable. Whilst it was awful what happened to the cyclist the Herald could provide an "interesting" thread on posters comments on all sorts of current affairs in Plymuff. I presume other regional rags also have their fair share of bar stop trolls.

    He seemed to have got off very lightly, quick google of the sentences possible after GBH, suprised at how lenient they are.
