your the reason why motorists hate cyclists - smash a wing mirror? expect that same 1 ton of metal to clip your back wheel and run over your legs
threaten my own children in my car and i will run you down; that is simple - i do not tolerate any `adult` who willfully attacks or threatens a child

haha dude you're such a tool.
I don't care if you survived your childhood... I just think its hilarious that you're telling your kids not to wear a helmet just because of your own personal beliefs.

I think what the person done was out of pure anger, and didn't really run it throught his mind first, i doubt he would do it again.

I've watched my kids trip over their own feet in the yard, fall over and hit their heads. Should they have been wearing helmets then? The final velocity of their head impacting the ground would have been equivalent to that of falling off a bike.
HOLLISTON - If you're young and ride a bicycle through town without a helmet, you may end up walking back home. Police here are looking for scofflaws and will snatch the pedals from your feet if you've been warned numerous times but still forgo headgear.

Oh, so your kids run as fast as they cycle?
Lets just hope that they dont ever stack their bike, crash, smash their head on concrete and sustain life threatening injuries...simply because you are to stubborn, arrogant and ignorant
not to mention breaking the law....to make them wear a helmet.
You obviosuly value your own freedom of speech over your childrens safety
People like that make me sick
What should him and I do as parents? Make them wear bullet proof vests too... are you aware more kids are shot to death before the age of 18 by a factor of at least 5 to 1 than die on bicycles?
What about... Feeling the wind in your hair? Takeing risks, haveing guts... These things are far bigger factors in success and failure in life than falling of a bike is likely to be.
You don't remember those kids from school, soft, dorked out, dressed funny, never knowing what to say easilly intimidated, always picked on set up for a life of psychological abuses by thier peers, that unique handful of young men who never could get a date or later a job promotion.
