Finally a Feed

Well, it’s a Feed. There were some really old links to stories I had already covered, with the same links, there was some good news and there was a report on bicycle vandalism in the UK.

Up first is the good news, but much delayed. 1:10 p.m. — Jackson sentenced to 9 years for 2006 vehicular homicide case Don’t get too excited about the 9 year sentence, it was originally 12 years and was knocked down from 12 years before he even left the courtroom, and he might only spend 4 years in prison.

From Jamaica we have another SWSS. Cyclist killed For new readers, SWSS is an acronym coined by Chip Seal, a reader when the blog was posted over on MySpace. It stands for Single Witness Suicidal Swerve, where a cyclist pulls out in front of a motor vehicle, according to the only surviving (or conscious) witness, the driver of the vehicle that hit the cyclist. For obvious reasons I strongly doubt the reports in these situations…

And finally from the UK that report of bicycle vandalism. Colchester: vandalism put bike-commuter’s life on line Yeah, that could have been really bad. This is the kind of anti-cyclist behavior that could get people killed.

And that’s all for tonight.
