Unbelievable. I actually just don't know what to say. The police in this town are horrible.
3 smart ways cyclists can handle drivers with road rage:
Jesus F*cking H Christ. What the f*ck do we have to do to get a thimble of respect from the police?
This. Will be an interesting ride tonight. . .
Why am I not surprised. I was attacked 3 months ago by a motorist and the police showed up - gave them pictures of attacker and his car's plate, witness info, etc. And they haven't done anything. Filed for a copy of my police report and it had more redactions that the Mueller Report. CPD is a joke, unless you're a motorist, white, wealthy, crony of the city/machine. Those points are additive BTW
Have you presented this info to an attorney of your own choosing?
nope . . . not here . . .
Two words: Civil Suit
You only need to prove guilt based on a preponderance of the evidence, rather than beyond a reasonable doubt as with criminal cases. There's a phone book of attorneys who will take the case if you have some evidence here, rather than hoping to convince the police who would then in turn convince a prosecutor to pursue criminal charges to win the he-said/she-said . You can recover damages, etc.
I suggest the same for LJS as well.
