This is a photo of the guy who got out of the BMW and shot the guy who accidentally cut him off. I don't think he's the reason why all BMW drivers get a "bad rap".

It wasn't even his BMW. I bet there is more to the story though.

Talk about a POS imature man-child. What the fuck did that accomplish? He killed an innocent man and father. And now his own son will have to grow up without a father because his dad is a pathetic loser, who lacks self control.


"Byrne was shot in the chest and died at the scene, while Sinclair, who police said was in the BMW with his baby and his baby's mother, later died at Broward Health Medical Center."

BMW Driver hit and run FHP LEO on side of road and in same general area 3 weeks ago.

Person gets out of BMW and shoots other driver.

People just hear BMW involvement in story and stigma perpetuates.

The rising tide of crazies in this country has no boundaries. Rich, poor, black, white, and they can be driving any type of car. I donít realistically believe anyone with a normal mind is convinced of evil connected to any brand of car (or clothes, shoes, neighborhoods).

Dangerous people can be - and are - everywhere.

Interesting you did not post that in this thread minutes ago which proves otherwise.

This stuff just blows my mind. How anybody could get to a point in their lives where something like this happens (the murderer I mean) is just mind boggling. How many terrible life choices do you have to make to wind up here?

RIP to the victim, not the POS who also got what he rightfully deserved.

Of course this happened in SoFlo.

This isn't a BMW thing, as our reputation is more for douchey driving than homicide. It's about a total loser with nothing else going for him in life. People with jobs and real problems don't pull out guns over getting cut off.

The M3 Driver was shot at in this case.

I should not go there, but my belief is that so many children are being raised today without anyone in their lives displaying a moral compass, you end up with adults that can’t comprehend or be successful in nearly anything.

They simply have no concept of making a good decision, and of the consequences of bad decisions.

Add to that all the babies born after marinating in alcohol and drugs and are permanently impaired, often with cognitive and social disabilities that are never recognized or addressed.

Those people will forever hate and resent others they see living good and successful lives.

When you drive, your Adrenalin also is raised (medical fact), so this increases the likelihood of heightened and inappropriate emotional reactions.

As others have said, don’t respond to those people. If you do, you raise the stakes that they will become so infuriated that they can’t control themselves.

It is getting worse and worse. The disenfranchised and people unable to have any intellectual discourse are far out-numbering educated, thoughtful and mindful adults.

I believe he meant to link the thread where you associated the guy with an old mercury with being poor and unsuccessful

Obviously people do have perceptions of BMW Drivers.

Anyone attend a FL gun safety/CCW class? It will shock you the kind of people that show up there looking to (and most likely receiving) the privilege to concealed carry a firearm.

I swear to God some of them don't even bother to show up sober

I thought Mercedes drives are supposed to be the bad guy. Haven't you been watching the movies like James Bond and Transporter for instance?
