Moron Bareheaded Motorcyclist Dies In Ride To Protest Mandatory Helmet Laws
"A bareheaded motorcyclist participating in a ride to protest mandatory helmet laws was killed when he was thrown over the handlebars in Onondaga, New York.
Philip A. Contos, 55, of Parish, New York, was on a ride organized by the Onondaga chapter of American Bikers Aimed Towards Education (ABATE), state police said Sunday."
It`s difficult to work up even a smidgen of sympathy for this clown. Contos got exactly what he deserved; I only hope he had medical insurance, so the taxpayers would end up footing his bills.
Contos` death was not in vain, he proved that it`s foolish to ride a motorcycle without donning a helmet. Ironic isn`t it?
Contos` isn`t a hero who died for freedom, he`s a moron who died needlessly.
Motorcycle deaths have doubled in recent years, don`t be a moron, always wear a helmet.
