    The anger and sorrow expressed over this crime are fine, but perhaps we need to remind the viewers and posters of this thread that is a MEMORIAL, not America's Most Wanted.

    If the police know where the driver is at the chances are GREAT that while law enforcement in his area knows about the situation. This isn't 1932. To arrest someone evidence is needed. EXTRADITION is required-agencies do not have automatic cross-border jurisdiction powers, although many have made agreement as such. It is a legal matter to do this and an agreement between several city, county and other entities may have to be secured.

    I would ask that such posts as the ones recently please be directed to another part of A&S as they only tend to be inflammatory is this one.

    There are many factors in the capture of an accused criminal and you cannot tell what in your opinion is the matter from a news article. That is the job of law enforcement and the justice system they are part of. We aren't going to do the job in this thread.

    In Memory Of: Cyclist Memorial Statements is not an advocacy thread, it is a listing of cyclists who lost their lives doing what they loved to, as reported by persons who cared.

    Please endeavor to keep it reverent.

    Our prayers were answered on Christmas Eve. The local police authority near Vacaville arrested Taylor Boe at his parents home due to the bench warrant for not coming to court on Dec 2nd. The power of prayer and love are awesome!

    Why weren't his parents also arrested, for harboring a fugitive?

    Scott Lane of Albuquerque was hit Tuesday, and died from his injuries yesterday. The driver who hit him, claimed that she did not know the light was red. Another 'I didn't see him/her' excuse.

    Robert White

    In Loving Memory of

    Robert Eugene White

    March 2, 1954 - Sept. 25, 2011

    Dad,

    I hope you know how many lives you've touched. Your bold faith in God and your belief in something greater than yourself gave you the strength to continuously give even when you, at times, had very little. What you have taught me and many others is that you always have something to give. The need for love and compassion and the ability to give it can have profound effects that penetrate deeper into the human soul than any dollar amount ever could. A true gift to another human being is to lift them up spiritually and that is what you did for others. To know you was to be truly blessed. To be your daughter has been an honor. You have given me unconditional love and the courage to rise above and go the way of peace. As I walk through the rest of my life I know you will be with me. Go in peace dad, go continue your work, God's work, use your beautiful strength to lift those who cannot lift themselves. I wish you well on your journey. You will be in our hearts forever. I love you.

    Robert leaves his daughter, Angela C. White and lots of people who love him.

    May peace be with him.

    There will be no formal services held.

    Published in the Poughkeepsie Journal on October 4, 2011 This eulogy given by a loving daughter who misses her Father who was killed tragically killed by a driver who was not paying full attention to the road and the traffic in front of him. She needs the prayers from all who have loved ones that have the right to bicycle safely and not be killed by doing something that they love. Please pray for Angela, the power of prayer is awesome.

    The truth will set you free. There is no point in taking the time to print untruths unless you have something to hide. I have the truth of a grieving daughter who lives with the pain of her Father not coming to visit her, his life tragically taken by someone driving a one ton bullet, who was not paying attention to the road ahead of him. I have the truth of the court system that states the facts of the court proceedings and who was there and who wasn't and the posting of $10,000.00 bail on Christmas Eve, from his arrest at his parent's home, for a bench warrant for someone who wasn't. My daughter has been there for all of this. The ripple effect is that she is still being hurt by this man's no show at court Dec 2, 2012. There is little to no justice for the lives of bicycle riders and the people that love them. Right now it feels as though automobile drivers have a right to kill without any recourse. Misdemeanor slap on the wrist. The victim is dead and the Family will never have their loved ones to share any part of their lives again... period. Prayers to release the pain that we experience every single day are needed and appreciated. Prayers for some form of justice for all those who lose loved ones to this senseless disobedience of the law. The truth will set you free.

    For Chris516
    He was coming home from Santa Anna to spend Christmas with his Family. We knew he was coming home for Christmas because of his post on Facebook. It was just a matter of time and we knew that the police would get him. Hope 88 stated on my thread that I was lying but in fact there is an area on the Solano county court web site ( http://courtconnect.solano.courts.ca...ate=&end_date= ) that states the truth. Remember to use the scroll at the right to see the whole proceedings to date. This has been incredibly difficult for my daughter Angela who lives in CA and I who live in PA. I can't be there for her and the pain she is going through. That's why I ask people who care about other bicyclists for prayer to help get her through. She wanted to have a Memorial ride for her Father and to improve the area to ride on Highway 113 for future bicyclists. She wanted to have T-Shirts that said "Ride for Robert" and try to make it an annual event for Bicycle safety awareness. I just thought I'd share that with you because you were wondering why his Folks weren't arrested for harboring a fugitive. Take care and ride safely. Connie P.S. I tried to private message you but you have to have at least 50 post to private message someone.

    I'm about 75% sure we should forget about this section and retitle it Grief, retribution and people who don't listen to the Site Administrator.

    We're happy some nagging pain was freed from your souls BUT SAVE YOURSELF FROM ANQUISH IN ANOTHER THREAD. You cannot just gripe about BMX in a section for ROAD BIKES?

    DISCIPLINE! E'er and lest we lose our mind on an easy street corner! And Begone such that others feel their own peace.

    Hereby submitted and duly!

    Let me follow up that okay, you updated chris516 but let my remind you email contact is an option and you can leave a message on his member page with the message or a contact address.

    You really shouldn't hijack the thread, no matter how righteous you feel the tale is. I believe our site admimistrator, Tom Stormcrowe may have started this topic and he's made his opinion clear already. Even if it was to agree with me it is his ruling.

    We all remain pious and sad for the deceased and yet we do not politicize their deaths here. This is merely a JOURNAL. The place to scream is anywhere else in A&S. We ask that is whai you do for the remainder of the site's existance. Chronicle here, cry there.

    Dang. Of the thousands of people that ran Ragnar Florida Keys 2012, had to be someone I remember (Team Who's Dale?). . .

    Aaron Choen, 36 hit Wednesday on the Rickenbacker Causway. Died this morning. . .

    This is what the car looked like (as seen on Miami Herald online article):
    "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize"
    "So I do not run like someone who doesn't run toward the finish line. I do not fight like a boxer who hits nothing but air."
    "And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us."
    "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."

    I hope everyone can help me share the message for communities to provide safe cycling options. Please share via email, Facebook, forum, etc. There were two cycling accidents in my city this week, one of them fatal. I created this video both as a tribute to my husband, a killed cyclist, and as a plea for communities to work toward safer cycling routes:

    Harry Delmolino - 18 years old - Northhamptom, MA

    Harry was a moderator for r/bicycling (no_numbers_here), a subreddit of Reddit.com. He had a head-on collision at an intersection this past Saturday (5-19-2012) and has been in ICU. He passed away this morning due to his injuries.

    I didn't know him personally, but he was a great mod over at r/bicycling. R.I.P.

    I didn't know him. He's the third rider to be killed this year in Polk County, Oregon where I live and ride. All three were killed in broad daylight by sober drivers.

    In memory of Mark Schneider of Pittsburgh, PA who passed away 55 years young. Mark somehow lost control of his bike during one of the Catoctin Challenge's descents. He was wearing a helmet but struck a metal mailbox at high speed.

    http://www.fredericknewspost.com/sec...1#.UBs-lCOJIw8

    I didn't know Mark but given all the good he has done for cyclists, he'll be missed.

    Mickey Shunick, Lafayette LA. May 19, 2012. Mickey disappeared while riding her bike home around 2 am. Cyclists from all over Louisiana came and joined search efforts. Today Brandon Lavergne plead guilty to murder and life in prison and revealed the details of her death. She fought valiantly against a serial killing monster. http://abcnews.go.com/US/mickey-shun...9#.UC66g47fC20

    Iris Stagner 9.17.12

    BikeTexas Board Member Iris Stagner Killed While Riding Home Monday Tuesday, September 18 2012

    It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of Iris Stagner, a member of the BikeTexas family. She worked as an administrator in Palo Pinto County and was a mother, wife, BikeTexas board member, friend, state leader in promoting bicycle safety and education, and avid bicycle racer. Iris was killed yesterday while doing what she loved, riding her bicycle. Her death is a terrible loss to Texas and the cycling community. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Butch Stagner, two daughters and the rest of her very close family.
    According to an early news report from the Star-Telegram, Iris was crossing a bridge on U.S. 180 when a truck struck her from behind. An investigation is ongoing.
    The Iris Stagner Memorial Fund at BikeTexas has been established at the request of Iris's family. All of the proceeds will go to the BikeTexas Share the Road Program for Bicyclist and Motorist Safety Education. Iris devoted a great deal of time and energy to bicycle safety in Palo Pinto County; she pushed to have Share the Road signs installed on local roads and also participated in BikeTexas Cyclists in Suits Lobby Day at the state capital.
    Bernie Scheffler, close friend of Iris and owner of Trinity Bikes in Fort Worth said, "Iris fought for bicycle safety on the roads; it's tragically ironic that she was killed this way. She was that rare individual who crossed into every niche of bicycling."
    The Board of Directors and staff of BikeTexas will miss Iris immensely and we send our prayers, condolences and love to Butch and her family. BikeTexas encourages photos of Iris Stagner and memories to be posted on the BikeTexas Facebook page.
    Iris's memorial service will be Friday, Sept 21 at 2 PM at Indian Creek Baptist Church in Mineral Wells. Visitation is on Thursday, Sept 20 from 6-8 PM at Baum Carlock Baumgardner Funeral Home in Mineral Wells. Details about a short memorial ride hosted by BikeTexas will be published as soon as they are finalized.

    Even though this is a rather old story, it's about a remarkable person named Ian Hibell who traveled the globe on his bike for over 40 years.
    He was killed on the 23rd of August in 2008 on the outskirts of the city of Athens by a driver who was said to be racing another car on the interstate. The driver hit Ian Hibell and fled the scene, and was arrested the next day. Court outcome is still unknown because of delays in the Greek judicial system.
