What the hell?

I am so completely flabbergasted by this story that I'm compelled to post - http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/toronto/michael-bryant-in-police-custody/article1271489/

The former Attorney General of the province of Ontario allegedly got into an 'altercation' with a cyclist, who grabbed the side of the former AG's car. Michael Bryant then proceeded to try and shake the unwanted passenger off by driving the wrong way down the street, bashing the person into mailboxes and trees. He succeeded, left the dying man on the road in a puddle of blood, and sped away.

What exactly has to be going wrong in a person's life to think that this is acceptable behaviour? How do you go from threatening to crush cars used or built for street racing, apparently to protect lives, to taking one, deliberately using a car to do so?

Was he afraid the cyclist had a 'pit bull', the 'breed' he worked so hard to ban, in his back pocket? Was he worried because his complete hand gun ban didn't pass, and the cyclist might be packing more than padding in his spandex? Did he not realize he was in a populated area, full of witnesses, with, I'm guessing fantastic cell service?

Nevermind. There is no explanation for this. None.
