All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

How many times has this killed bikers JUST THIS YEAR?

Why are the media outlets not publicizing this more and why are the cops still head hunting the bikers?

fucking ridiculous. I almost got hit by a jackass rolling a sign a couple weeks ago and went ballistic on the guy.
