The sidewalks have eyes

Earlier this week up in Toronto, some wiley college kids captured a violent road-rage incident, wherein driver assaults cyclist. (Well, he's not so much a cyclist as a guy on a bike, but still. It's the principle of the matter.)

Here's the play-by-play: Bike guy apparently stopped at a yellow, sending motorist into a fit of tire-kicking vitriol. Guy on a bike prepares to body slam his Magna onto the hood of the car when he takes a jab to the chin, sending one of his molars into the great beyond.

Turns out angry motorist was an off-duty Toronto cop... so, well, you sort out the moral calculus there.
