NZ truckie bashed, now gang member fears for his life
THE nation’s drivers were shocked when news broke that a New Zealand truckie has been bashed by a ‘boy racer’ after his car was swiped.
Not two days had passed however when a follow up story revealed the ‘boy racer’ whose friends had carried out the attack had not only lost not only his job, but also his flat, and feared for his and his family’s lives.
A number of readers believed karma was at play.
Tony C: “I thought he was all tough like with his mates ripping doors off and violently attacking a lone man? Guess not.
“What goes around comes around.”
Shaun C: “Has his kid and job really been threatened?
“Or did his boss actually realise the man he had employed bought his company into disrepute?
“It’s easier to blame the big bad truck drivers instead of owning his mistakes. These idiots, not one of them has owned up to this
incident it’s been via social media and the actions of others. They have been caught so I don’t believe a sob story blown up by the media.”
Ross J: “So they show no respect for the road rules and take the law into their own hands and try to bash a bloke? Real heroes boys.
“There was plenty of footage to show the police to let them sort it out but you chose to get truckies and the public offside with your gang mentality.”
Paul W: “Good, these people need to start and learn about consequences, in this day and age every young person reacts without thinking about outcomes. The day they do learn I’m sorry to say it’s too late.”
Nigel R: “If it was left between the two parties involved it would’ve just been deemed an accident both vehicles insured.”
TERRIFIED: The gang was filmed during the attack.
