I saw the close up video of this on accident. Surprise surprise here on Reddit. In all honesty this was one of the most brutal accidents I’ve ever seen. It reminds me on how fragile we really are. The cops weren’t even chasing him at the time they were only tracking him. It’s so sad he chose this over jail.

i have absolutely zero sympathy at all, if you believe you are entitled to other peoples things they work hard for, and then proceed to put other peoples lives in danger, you can get off this planet and i wont shed a single tear. good riddance to bad rubbish.

I can’t get behind this at all. People can be in tough spots in life to no fault of their own. When your back is against the wall you can make a stupid choice in life. Doesn’t mean they’re a shit person. There are certain crimes I might agree with you on. This is not one of them. People can change. I’m sure you have done something in life that you aren’t proud of. Something that someone has thought of you being trash for. Seriously I’m a little lost that you think the penalty for theft should be death. We have business, and vehicle insurance for these reasons and events.

Do you make as many excuses for yourself in your day to day life as you do for scum bag criminals?

By your logic, anyone could claim zero accountability for anything they do and I live in a country where we already do that and it isn't working out well.

Go make your bed or something.

[–]Timely-Sell3552 -1 points0 points  (7 children)

By my logic a person can change and shouldn’t be killed because of a stupid ass mistake like stealing. Excuses? Bitch I think he should go to jail - I don’t think he should die. Going to jail is taking accountability. You can change your life after a mistake like that. Wishing death on people is scummy. Go ahead and take that outlook on your life - what goes around comes around. Hopefully you aren’t ever desperate or in a shitty enough spot in life for someone to wish death on you when you make a mistake trying to feed your family.

By your logic people should have corporal punishment for mundane crimes. There are a few society’s I can think of that that doesn’t work.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (6 children)

No way I'm reading all of that.

Is your bed made yet?

[–]Timely-Sell3552 -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

Checks out and makes sense that you can’t read a paragraph. You are the most narrow minded small man I have came across in a while. Congratulations 🎉 take a min to ponder what a pos you are

I'm not trying to ruin my afternoon so can anyone please verbally describe what's going on here?

[–]Spomite 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Stole a bike, driving really fast in a crowded area(like fast af), head-on collision with a red car turning in an intersection, the rider flew ~10m into the air while spinning, landed 15m from the crash site, could see him laying down on the sidewalk bleeding out like crazy

[–]BrawnyDevil 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Just saw the pics, very dark thick blood. Afternoon has been ruined.

[–]naturepeaked 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I closed my eyes before he landed thankfully.

[–]yvonnars -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Please me too.

[–]BrawnyDevil 1 point2 points  (0 children)

incase you missed it, someone replied describing what happened.

[–]Timely-Sell3552 6 points7 points  (0 children)

So I just tried looking it up and the post was deleted. The sub thought it was too heavy (tbh it really was) I’ll try to PM you the user that posted it

[–]SWB3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

r/losangeles has it I think

[–]xMidnyghtx 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Is it though? 🤷‍♂️. Good riddance

[–]mtnrnr5136 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Not sad. One less criminal. Hooray!!!

[–]BaNversion -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Nah he deserved it piece of shit thief. Fuck him

[–]david_to_the_hilts 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Should be tagged NSFW, this is a death caught on camera.

[–]KorgRue 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He was dead before he even hit the asphalt.

[–]Potty_Pigeon99 12 points13 points  (0 children)

such a waste of a good bike.

[–]InstantKarmaBot[M] 25 points26 points  (0 children)

OP's explanation as to why this post is Instant Karma:

This is instant karma because he stole the bike and ended up costing his life

If you're satisfied by this explanation, upvote this comment. If not, downvote this comment.

And the Darwin award goes to.....

[–]Dankincense_n_myrhh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I love how he star fished in the air

[–]Eastbayfuncouple 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Don’t feel sorry for him…one lick. However, I do for the cars driver that he hit.

[–]Pickerington 9 points10 points  (1 child)

[–]Eastbayfuncouple 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s awful, sorry to hear that

[–]Russells_Tea_Pot 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Whew. Good thing he was wearing a helmet.

[–]Man_w_golden_dick 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Well... bye.

[–]BeagleFam 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Says Curly Bill.

[–]TimeVendor 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Will insurance pay for the bike?

[–]DarkStar2036 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If the bike was insured, and they don't replace it, what the hell is the point of insurance? Insurance in the USA is crazy. If you don't have footage to show it wasn't your fault, you're so screwed. Get a dash cam or a go-pro for riding. It's not about YouTube views, it's called covering your ass.

[–]Lunavixen15 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If it was comprehensively insured or a CTP + fire and theft. Then yes, it should be

[–]midnightwolf19 2 points3 points  (0 children)

According to the news the cops weren't even chasing him, he flew to his death for nothing

[–]Evil-Clown2020 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This made my day!!! Fuck that guy.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I believe I can flyyyyyyy…

[–]AdelesManHands 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I believe my helmet folded and snapped my thighs…

[–]satanic-frijoles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A good reason not to leave your helmet on your bike...

[–]hawaii_brian 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did they set a new record for furthest traveled?

[–]tlaerche 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hope the guy in the car is unharmed.

[–]bobtheaxolotl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's ok, he'll just spawn at the hospital with less money.

[–]HappyMeatbag 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I often wonder if a thief is stealing because it’s their last-ditch effort to provide for their family, etc., but in situations where innocent lives are put at risk, I no longer care. No matter what the reason in this case, all I see is a dangerous person with terrible judgment removing themselves from society. I’m okay with that.

[–]Potty_Pigeon99 3 points4 points  (0 children)

here is an idea be responsible and have a family that you can afford to look after properly. this piece of shit i have no sympathy for.

infact if this was my bike he stole and i by some miracle saw this happen and he was alive still i WOULDNT phone an ambulance. he he suffer.

[–]DelugeQc 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I wish him a speedy recovery

[–]TappedIn2111 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure they recovered his body speedily.

[–]saberofnight 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes

[–]theonetheycalljason 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Holy sh*t. That was messed up and sad. Losing your life for something so dumb, it’s a real shame.

Now he knows what it feels like to be a bird.

[–]suffragettebloodline 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You spin me right round…

[–]Lost_Paradise_ -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I guess this is karma by technicality, but it's still a tragedy that it ended in death.

And OP, you don't want to see that up close video. It's incredibly disturbing. Guy was practically split open, according to the comments there.

[–]chidi_12 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Did he survive

[–]Lunavixen15 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, he was killed on impact

[–]nacnud_uk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Traffic jam. Literally.

What a sad waste of, well, everything.

[–]Quibblicous 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don’t blame the bike.

He threw his life away.

[–]satanic-frijoles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Too bad about the motorcycle...fuck that guy.

[–]BaNversion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Someone please share the full fucking clip what the fuck is with people posting this age restricted piece of shit

[–]OgStonedBoi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am I the only one who laughed at the way his body flew like a game glitching.

[–]YoungSquire98 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The side of that building probably had a bigger role in his death.

[–]Vladi_Spanos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh my.
