(This forum should never condone violence, of course, and the comments under the video are cautionary...)

it was in Singapore

There are predictable racist comments about ang moh (white people) and then an attempt to call the truck driver a PRC (as opposed to Singapore-born Chinese).

Oh and some bonus stuff about bicycles being in the way.

Wow, driver attacks the cyclist with his vehicle, then jumps out and chases after him with a fire extinguisher, thoroughly deserved what he got imo.

And the driver tried to hide the fire extinguisher behind his back - he needs time in prison.

I try my best to avoid violence but if it comes looking for you,you have two choices either run away from it or fight,the cyclist in this instance made the right choice and the truck driver got his comeuppance.

After he was knocked on his buttock I would have stamped on his leg to prevent him chasing me.
A grey area in the law BUT any lawyer would be happy to take your case.
Basically the same as the police breaking your ankle to prevent you escaping.(Use of minimum force required).

P.S.
I'm not advocating that you should do this, just what I would have done/ have done.

Moderators.
what is wrong with the word A.R.S.E. and I'm not sure about you but I have 2 buttocks.

^ Aw, don't spoil my fun. . . . uni-buttocked persons are also welcome.

. . . no discrimination here. Oh, no !
