Somehow I’m guessing the driver will be found at fault. And the badge/uniform thing is just a coincidence. A “civilian” gets run over, big deal. We’re too busy to even look for the car let alone actually cite somebody. Cyclist must have been in the way, holding up traffic, you know those crazy cyclists…
Metropolitan Police Officer Brian Bobick …was injured when on bicycle patrol with a second officer in the 4200 block of Ord St., NE. The two officers were about to stop a group of people in an alley when they heard a vehicle gun its engine. The officers turned to see a black Cadillac pointed at them.
“It just charged toward them at a high rate of speed,” said D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier. “The fact that someone intentionally ran down these officers is very disturbing.” Source: wjla.com
The fact any person would run down anybody intentionally is disturbing. Full stop.
And yet it happens. All the time. Anyone who reads this page is seeing all the same articles and press I am.
Look at what’s been happening up in Portland? People get run over by dump trucks while they ride their bicycle in the bike lane and its’ somehow the cyclist’s fault.
