Default Pedestrian should have been wearing a plastic hat

Man is hit on the head by a gang of cyclists and sadly dies. We are always told to let the police deal with these things and not to wade in like the guy who was "decked with a single punch". He did not even carry a chisel in his back pocket.

QUOTE:

"A teenage boy is accused of killing a devoted stepfather by hitting him around the head with a cricket bat over a row about his children's bikes.

Derek Whyteside, 42, was smashed in the back of the head with the children-sized bat and stamped on just a mile from his home in Telford, Shropshire on June 20.

He was put in an induced coma but died two days later after suffering traumatic head injuries.

Jurors at Stafford Crown Court today heard the boy, 16, gave him 'no chance' of surviving after whacking him with the bat and fracturing his skull.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, attacked the loving stepfather in a row over bikes that had been stolen from his partner Michelle Beddall's children, the court heard. He denies murder.

Brothers William, 40, and Gareth Owens, 39, ran over and stamped on him, jurors were told. They have already pleaded guilty to affray at an earlier hearing."

Moral of the story, if you want to kill someone use a car. That way you can claim 'It was just a momentary lapse of concentration'.
