The Roadside Beating of Alexian Lien


What happened?

Recently in the news, Alexian Lien was driving with his wife and 2 year old daughter on the Henry Hudson Parkway at the same time a group of motorcyclists riding under the event Hollywood Stuntz. There had already been over 200 hundred calls to 911 based on the actions of this group of motorcycle riders.

A motorcyclist named Chistopher Cruz challenges the driver of the SUV and then purposely slows down and ends up getting his bike dinged by Alexian Lien’s SUV.

Alexian Lien stops the SUV, it gets surrounded by other bikers. The bikers begin striking Lien’s SUV. Lien pushes the SUV through the angry crowd striking Jeremiah Mieses, also known as Jay Meezee. It degenerates into a high speed chase in which Alexian Lien’s SUV gets stuck in traffic, he is pulled from his car and severely beaten and stabbed.

The video above captures some of the incident.

So who is at fault here?

According to a Gun Safety Professionals Instructor, who is a 50 year motorcyclist, and Area Representative with Chapter 27-2 of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association,the Hollywood Stuntz bike riders were disregarding a number of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation‘s rules for Group Riding.

  •     No hand signals were used
  •     The bike riders were riding in a disorganized fashion that goes directly against what are considered the best practices for safe group riding.
  •     Basic Group riding protocols can be found here. www.msf-usa.org/downloads/group_ride.pdf‎
    • No hand signals were used by the riders
    •  The group was larger than 5-7 people and not broken into subgroups of riders.
    • There appeared to be no designated lead rider or sweep rider.
    • A number of riders were riding side by side as opposed to riding in a staggered formation.
      •     The Hell’s Angels or any of the (in)famous Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs are known to ride in an organized fashion when going from Point A to Point B.
  •     Motorcycling is a lot like concealed carry in that when you are doing it, you go out of your way to avoid a confrontation.
  •     You don’t pick fights like the guy who intentionally slowed down as pictured below.
    • “Play stupid games and win stupid prizes.”
    • “If you go out looking for trouble, then you will find more than you ever wanted.”

You are the SUV Driver. What do you do?
Alexian Lien was vastly outnumbered. Alexian Lien was with his wife  Rosalyn Ng and their two year old daughter and his vehicle is now surrounded by a group of unknown males because he dinged the bike of one of the Hollywood Stuntz crew. Many of the Hollywood Stuntz crew were bigger than Alexian Lien. Alexian Lien had people in the car who could not defend themselves. They start cussing Alexian Lien out and aggressively kicking his door and are visibly armed with blunt force weapons (helmets) and Mr. Lien don’t know what other weapons they may be carrying. The pack mentality has set in. There really was no way for Mr. Lien to “talk his way out of” this situation.

Also this is New York City so unless you are Mike Bloomberg, you cannot be legally armed since The Little Dictator of New York thinks that self defense is only for the rich and powerful.

Pushing the SUV through the mob was the only option that Alexian Lien had.

Mr. Lien did the best that he could with what he knew. He drove straight ahead until he was caught in a traffic jam, pulled out of the SUV and severely beaten and stabbed.
Notice how the motorcycle rider with the helmet cam turned it off as they were pulling Alexian Lien from his car?

The key to escaping high speed pursuers is to make turns and reverses as opposed to “rabbiting” straight ahead as you have a high risk of getting stuck and surrounded if you drive straight ahead.

Biker surrenders to New York cops after another arrested for accident that caused attack on SUV driver

Motorcyclist Christopher Cruz allegedly caused an accident with Alexian Lien when he cut off the SUV driver on Sunday. Lien, who was driving his wife and their 2-year-old, stopped but fled when a group of bikers began to damage his Range Rover — and Lien plowed into rider Edwin Mieses, who’s been left paralyzed, his mother says.

Sources said Christopher Cruz, 28 (pictured) cut Alexian Lien off on the Henry Hudson Parkway and caused the accident that triggered a wild 4-mile chase through upper Manhattan.

Cops have arrested two of the bikers who they say sparked a hell-on-wheels ordeal in upper Manhattan that ended with a mob beating and slashing a man in front of his wife and 2-year-old.

As Christopher Cruz, 28, was awaiting arraignment on charges stemming from the attack on Alexian Lien, police arrested a second motorcyclist, Allen Edwards, 42, of Queens.

Cops are trying to identify two suspects (pictured) who are also wanted in the beating and slashing a Manhattan man in front of his family.

The bikers were taking part in a ride loosely organized by a group called Hollywood Stuntz. Police arrested 15 bikers Sunday for incidents unrelated to the mob attack. “We had over 200 calls just on Sunday about this particular group operating in a reckless manner,” Kelly said.

    Edwin Mieses injuries were severe. Torn aortic valve. Crushed rib cage. Punctured lung. Severed spine. Both legs crushed. After SUV driver committed 2 aggravated felonies the motorcyclist try Citizens Arrest fully within the limits of New York state law. SUV driver resist arrest and commits yet 2 more felonies. At 178th the SUV driver has committed a total of 4 aggravated felonies, yet resists arrest. Possible also an array of misdemeanors that unfortunately are not seen in Kevin Bresloff helmet. Unseen but likely are: alcohol intoxication, reckless driving, aggressive driving, criminal vandalism, child endangerment. Alexian Lien is truly a lucky guy because a beating ensues on the 178th street. Because of a black eye and eyebrow that needs a stitch he receives instant victim status. His blood alcohol content was not measured and he was not charged with any crime by Manhattan District Attorneys office. His victim was in coma and is expected to remain paraplegic. Alexian Lien gets a few bruises but magically avoids any consequences of his obvious ‘anyone can see it with their own two eyes’ criminal conduct. Normally 4 felonies means at least 48 months in prison. Add to that the unproven but likely 4 misdemeanors (DUI, reckless driver, aggressive driver, child endangerment). The Manhattan District Attorneys office rather see 13 men accused rather than look into a wealthy mans crimes. Wife is guilty of perjury by providing false affidavit about her husbands actions. SUV drivers future crimes are expected to be: 1. perjury in a court of law and 2. vehicle insurance fraud based on insurance claim filed with false report. Motorcycle helmet was used to smash driver side window. Extracting a resisting and fleeing felon from vehicle in a manslaughter case is still well within New York state description of Citizen Arrest.
