Two Vs. Four

Wheels, that is. Face it, if you are on a motorcycle and are hit by a four-wheeled vehicle, you are fucked.
And then, if you are a chickenshit who speeds away, to my mind, you are a criminal guilty of hit-and-run.
So yeah, I agree, if the cops are charging the cyclists who pursued and beat the man who ran OVER cyclists? And NOT the driver of the SUV?
That is bias.

We rode for all the years of our marriage until the last two years. We felt so endangered by folks in cars, SUVs, and RVs the last 15 to 20 years that we enjoyed it much less. When our children were still minors here in Washington state…until the late 90’s, I refused to ride at all, fearing leaving our children orphans.

So yeah, I’ve watched the video over and over. The cyclists were being a bit dickly. That does not give someone in a fucking SUV the right to run over one or two of them. And frankly, if the guy had not sped up and run, I don’t believe he would have been beaten.

Herland

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
