10 Years ago I probably be really pissed but as I get older I put things into perspective. I worked hard and love my car but in the end its just a car and I would not threaten or take another persons life with it. That whole thing looked staged anyway so who cares.

If it were real, I'd hit him out of self defense. I don't want some guy with a crowbar hitting me in the head.

Like I said, It was staged, except for the very real, very terrified victim.
Quite frankly, yes, I would kill him. At that point, it is self-defense, because there is no way to know whether he is going to attack ME, and a baseball bat is a deadly weapon.

Yeah I am just not a real physical person and dont like violence. I would have tried to scoot out of there but with cars it front it would be hard.Well lets hope this never happens to any of us in real life.

Eagle, what the H E L L does that video have to do with a car? Where are your priorities and sensitivities to human life and health?

In addition, the next time you post content like that on this Forum, you will CLEARLY state 'Language Warning'.

Regardless if it were staged or not, you know some mental midget is going to try recreating this scene for real. Then what?

Staged or not if some crack head comes at me like that while I'm in traffic I will use the car as a weapon to defend myself. I don't care if it'* a rental car. That would have scared the crap outta me and I would have acted in self defense and thought about it later.
