Biker Down: Christopher E. Cooper

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmailby feather

It will never get easier to read stuff like this:

Witnesses said the red Ford was speeding, going 90 mph or faster, when it hit the teenager on a bicycle Thursday night.

The police car was right behind.

Christopher E. Cooper, 17, a son, a smiling classmate, and a skateboarder, died of blunt trauma from the collision.

…News of Cooper’s death hit classmates at Truman High School especially hard. Less than two hours after classes began Friday, a steady line of cars formed with parents waiting to pick up distraught children.

“He wasn’t just a good kid, he was a great kid,” freshman Katie Jones said to sophomore Lacey Hubbard later Friday afternoon at the crash site.

Our heartfelt condolences to his friends and family.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

    …i would think the active decision to run from the cops means this is not manslaughter, but 1st degree murder w/ a deadly weapon…
