    Warrant: Bike-wielding robber tried to kill man
    10/10/09 - Warrant: Bike-wielding robber tried to kill man

    Posted: 36 minutes ago

    Raleigh, N.C. — A Raleigh man used a bicycle to try to kill another man during a robbery last month, according to arrest warrants.

    Brian Keith Boozer, 20, of Raleigh, is accused of stealing a wallet and $20 cash from Clifton Batts on Sept. 15. Boozer used a bicycle to threaten and attack Batts, seriously injuring him, the warrant says.

    Boozer was charged with attempted murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and first-degree kidnapping.

    He was being held in the Wake County Jail Saturday under a $2 million secured bond. His first court appearance was set for Monday morning.

    For the safety of the American public, I recommend bicycles with the following "tactical" features be banned from manufacture:

    *Quick release wheels and seats, intended to allow the attacker to assault others more easily with just a wheel or seat instead of the whole bike
    *High speed flashers, inducing blindness in the victim
    *Racing wheels and frames, allowing high impact velocities to be reached

    Those currently owning one of said "tactical bikes" may be required to register, and provide proof of ownership of helmets for everyone in their household who are placed at risk by owning such dangerous machines.
