"Pretty hard to have Bryant in a headlock when you're near the hood."
"Not sure the timing on this one but it looks pretty damning to me."
I watched that video several times and from I saw: start of video shows Darcy riding around the left side of the Bryant's vehicle and then stopping ahead of Bryant.
6 - 7 seconds in; Bryant thrusts the car forward and into the back wheel of Darcy's bike.
At 11 seconds in; Bryant, who is now in contact with Darcy's bike (or at the point of impact) then hammers the gas pedal and tears off. That is 4 seconds from impact to attempting to leave the scene.
This time frame would give Darcy only 4 seconds to assess what just happened, hop off of his bike, check for damage, walk around to the driver's side, engage in an argument with Bryant, allegedly place Bryant in a headlock/grab steering wheel/seat/head rest or whatever silly notion that has been purported to have happened. I highly doubt any of those things did occur as there simply was not enough time to physically do all of that in under 4 fucking seconds (excuse my 'french')!
You can't distinguish my theory/analysis of the aftermath in the video, which is: Darcy may have hopped off his bike, possibly ran to the driver's side of Bryant's car, where Bryant, seeing a very understandably pissed-off Darcy approaching, experienced a 'holy shit' moment, panicked in those short few seconds after hitting Darcy, and realizing how stupid his actions were, proceeded to flee. Darcy grabbed on to the car to try and stop him or thought that by doing so, Bryant would have enough sense to stop. And Bryant didn't stop until Darcy fell off like a ragdoll after being pummelled into stationery objects by Bryant's car with Bryant at the wheel.
And because I couldn't really see Darcy running around to the side of the car in the video, my initial thought was that Darcy never made it off of the bike and Bryant hammered the gas which tossed Darcy onto the hood of the car. Yet shots of Darcy's bike, after the fact, don't really support that it was run over by the car, when Bryant fled, as it looked quite intact.
Another video I have seen shows why the bike wasn't run over. Bryant did hammer the gas which did toss Darcy onto the hood of the car. Bryant then immediately stopped. Backed slightly and drove around the fallen rider and bike to get away. Darcy gave chase to the car as it had to pass him to get away. Darcy did attach himself to the car to try to prevent Bryant from fleeing. Of course, Bryant didn't stop.
That video is here and the onto-the-hood-and-backing portion is 18 seconds in.
Nonetheless, my mind is made up. It was made up as a result from the witness accounts from last Monday night/Tuesday morning. My thoughts have now been solidified by viewing this video. Bryant is a murderer and is a despicable human being. Bryant instigated this action. Bryant was the agitator. Bryant is not innocent!
My final analysis and conclusion:
There was no verbal exchange or argument or anything of the sort. This incident happened in seconds! For some reason, Bryant was impatient that night, taunted and threatened Darcy, who then used his car to first hit Darcy's rear wheel and then, 4 seconds later, accelerated greatly, tossing Darcy onto the hood and plowing/pushing Darcy's bike - not running it over. Travelling only a few feet, Bryant then braked hard, sliding Darcy off of the hood which landed him next to his bike. Bryant backed up slightly to clear the fallen Darcy - now getting up - and proceeded to drive off. As the car wasn't yet going very fast, Darcy slammed his backpack on the hood to get Bryant to stop and in the process attached himself to the car to get Bryant to do just that. Once again, Bryant didn't stop. The maniac panicked and then tried to rid himself of the only living witness that could bury him. He succeeded.
Is it any wonder that Bryant's PR frm, Navigator Ltd. is doing it's level best at destroying the character of Darcy, while working very hard at garnering public support and sympathy for Bryant? It's what these people do for those who can afford it and are GUILTY!
