SHOCK!!! CROSSWALK CONFRONTATION: ANGRY DRIVER LAUNCHES LIGHTER IN THE FACE OF KANSAS CITY 4TH DISTRICT COUNCILMAN ERIC BUNCH!!!



He doesn't have a very big social media following and he's a rookie council dude BUT a violent confrontation involving a current KCMO city councilman is notable nevertheless.

Here's his side of the story:



First and foremost we wish the Councilman well and believe that fighting in the street and assault on the road is a horrible thing.

However, the connection the Bike/Walk advocate makes is tenuous at best. And so we ask: 

SHOULD ALL KANSAS CITY MOTORISTS TAKE THE BLAME FOR "TOXIC DRIVING CULTURE" JUST BECAUSE A COUNCILMAN GOT IN A FIGHT?!?!

Clearly there are "many sides" of this issue. More importantly, there are plenty of conscientious drivers and pedestrians who never get involved in any altercation along with not so great road warriors riding bikes, walking and behind the wheel. Also pedestrians often tag each other in the face. KCMO is, after all, a very violent city.

To label thousands upon thousands of people simply because of the tools they use seems like giving into stereotypes . . . Meanwhile, we understand the council dude is upset that he was assaulted and undoubtedly his words might be influenced by the unpleasantness he endured -- Again, totally understandable. But should the councilman's street fight reflect on all drivers??? Doubtful.

You decide . . .

Excuse me, he admits damaging the driver's mirror first. I think there are two sides to this story!

There used to be a pack of riders, who rode out of Longview Community College on a Saturday morning they literally would take up the whole Road so you could not pass. I actually watch them swing hammers at cars who got too close to them. The spandex biking community has no tolerance when it comes to cars. I've often thought why doesn't the city build an Aerodrome for the Riders. We have plenty of land we could put bike paths on. You would think an organization with the name bike in it would want to be keeping bicycles away from Motor Vehicles I'm confined him more to an area conducent of their needs. You don't need a big wide open Street to ride a whopping 10 miles an hour.

I think he is lying. Actually, he is on the city council, so I know he is lying.

I want to see the proof it happened! As a council member he can request the footage off any traffic surveillance camera that they have at that intersection. Show me the confrontation I want to see what really happened.#FREETHEVIDEO....

Funny how his true-life experiences match his avocational narrative.

Why wasn't Bunch in his dearly beloved bike lane he holds so dear? He's the reason KC roads are so screwed up, just take a look at Armour. BTW don't touch my flipping car ass hole!

The fact that a self-serving one-issue clown like this can be elected to the city council of the metro's largest city is all you need to know about KCMO "government".
Looks like he'll be following in the footsteps of that great public servant "Councilwoman" Cannaday.
Out of a population of 470,000+, this is the best you can do?
Hahahahaha!!

Yeah, damages a mirror by holding his hands out to protect himself... don't believe it. Would he lose his cool as a middle aged white dude so much as to smack a car mirror? I'd hope not, but he's a bike/ walk advocate which dramatically increases the chance. However, I suspect the actual truth is that nothing actually happened.

Ur' not in Boulder Colorado no more Eric

So he has no proof of this, just some tweets? He has an agenda to push so who believes this.

Anonymous said...

^^no he isn't.

He's in a city with some of the dumbest, most inattentive and worst drivers in the nation, which also happens to be one of the most dangerous. Boulder on the other hand is great with very low crime, decent weather, lots of parks and is a national leader in cycling due in large part to proper planning. A lot of the bike paths there are not just lines painted on a street but actually adjacent to main roads. Most of the small minded plebes around here would be well advised to get out of town every so often and see how the rest of the civilized world lives.

Councilman should have been packin' .
Take that gun and blast that mouthy motherfucker into the next block.

Then make the cops give him a ticket for blocking the street with his piece of shit vehicle.

Oh yeah. And take a shit into his cold dead mouth.

Go live in Boulder then if you don't like Kansas City.

If this had been anyone but Eric Bunch I'd be more inclined to believe it. Plus I as others would like to see some proof of his allegations since we all know he's prone to stretch the truth when it comes to the facts.

A driver threatened his life by steering the vehicle toward him. His response and conclusions are appropriate.

Oh I would 11:00, if not for the fact it's about 4 times the cost of living as KC is, at least in terms of housing. You see, you get what you pay for. In the meantime I will try to improve this low rent cowtown while mouth breathers like you pontificate a "if you don't like it, leave" mentality which clearly fixes nothing.

Go west, young man, er, uh, Eric, go back west, then.

^^^^Could you do something about potholes, Eric? We mouth breathers resent higher taxes and worse roads.

Hey Eric, I've got a suggestion! Why dont you stop being such a fucking pussy? Instead of whining about a minor altercation on your Twitter, man up and take responsibility for stepping out into oncoming traffic and damaging that poor man's mirror? Sounds like you deserved what you got.

Heres a novel idea, Bunch. Look both ways before you cross the street. Faggot.

What's the police report number?

^^^^^Good question. Maybe Eric is KC's Jussie Smollett.

Eric hates cars. Likes to confront them. One issue guy, but some of you voted for him. Welcome to Armour Blvd and his 400 million bike plan.

Toxic driving culture or toxic White Male Masculinity... I believe the latter. Yes, something ought to be done with entitled White guys with an hyper-sensitive attitude. Both the Councilman and the other guy... just wrong as could be.

There's obviously a lot of ignorant, hateful people on here, likely battling with a lot of internal struggles. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Really though, I hope it gets better.

But a crosswalk is for pedestrians to cross, and they shouldn't have to worry about "minor injuries" from getting hit by a vehicle that weighs at least a ton. That's two thousand fucking pounds against the flesh of a human being. We could try it on you to demonstrate what that feels like. Adding realism, the driver will go over the speed limit, text on their phone and give complete disregard for your life. You're probably going to pass, right?

Kansas City, Missouri city ordinance states "When traffic control signals are not in place or not in operation, the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right of way, slowing down or stopping if need be to so yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk when the pedestrian is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling, or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger."

Do people actually read this shitty blog or are all the anonymous comments the author talking to himself pretending he has an audience?

Yes, Eric. Unfortunately for you, gopher, trolley boy, and a slew of other legends in their own minds, people do read this blog.

I read TKC because it's a place where we can make fun of dickheads like this bike guy who imagined an attack. Sad.
