Driver Attacks Critical Mass in Brazil

This is ridiculous. Basically, there was a Critical Mass ride in Porto Alegre, Brazil and a driver went absolutely nuts and thrashed through the group of people. I’m going to warn you before you watch this, it’s pretty gnarly and scary to think somebody would get pissed enough to drive through a group of people, but this guy lost it.
I’m not really sure where to go with this since I’m still blown away, because i ride a bike on the daily to and from work now since i haven’t had a car since christmas, so I’m going to toss up the question… What does the driver deserve for his actions?

and to lighten the mood a little here is an epic video of a guy in the snow killing it on his bike! People are crazy.
