Just look at this:

Motorcyclist Dies On Ride Protesting Helmet Law In New York

Here're the main details:

Police say a motorcyclist participating in a protest ride against helmet laws in upstate New York died after he flipped over the bike's handlebars and hit his head on the pavement.
Troopers say Contos would have likely survived if he had been wearing a helmet.

Now get this. A lot of people left comments to this article insisting that people should have the right not to wear helmets -- that it's a "freedom" issue.

Good grief.
