    What do you want to bet that "administrative leave" (paid vacation) is the worst of his punishments?

    Dang, thats close to my house. Hope it wasn't anyone I've ridden with. I'm really interested to see the excuse to explain why a cop took his eyes off the road, crossed out of his lane, through another lane, and into the bike lane. My bet is his cell phone was ringing. I've been seeing lots of cops driving and talking on the phone over the last year. Or maybe he was drunk. This is sad.
    ride for fun

    The name of the game is manslaughter. He could probably be tried for murder if the issue was pressed, but he probably wont get either, I mean, he IS putting his life on the line to keep the roads safe afterall, he cant be put in jail.

    I don't care if he was drunk, asleep, not paying attention, having a seizure, or just plain stupid. He should be in jail on manslaughter chargers, cop or not. Anyone else would be, why shouldn't he? As a cop, he is simply a citizen who is authorized to enforce the law; this didn't happen in the line of duty, and has nothing to do with him being an officer. He should be punished the same way any citizen should be.

    Did you bother to read the article? The cyclists were ascending the hill on the right, in the bike lane, and the cop, coming down the hill, crossed a lane of traffic on a straight-away and plowed into them. Over on the road forum, other riders who were near by said that the cop was asleep at the wheel, which is really the only way you can explain behavior like this.

    It's his fault.

    Wow. . .

    "The group collided with the deputy's car while the deputy was on a routine patrol in the area, Sgt. Don Morrissey said."


    Wrong!!! They collided with him?!

    " Local cyclists noted that riders in large groups will sometimes ride two-abreast. The practice is not illegal but can be extremely dangerous on narrow, winding roads with a large amount of traffic."

    Especially to oncoming traffic, right? And 6 feet of bike lane. . .

    " 'I've seen bicyclists who ride crazy,' Paterson said. . ."

    I ****ing hate the "news"

    What the ****?! How ****ing typical. Blame the VICTIMS 'cause they're A)not cops and B)not in cars.
    What a piece of ****. Wrong way to respond to this.

    I know dude, thats about three miles from my place

    I hope he wasn't messin' with the CRT computer terminal, or like you said on his cell phone.

    my heart goes out to the families of the dead, I know how hard it is when someone you are used to coming home every night all of a sudden is never coming home again,...thats the hardest thing anyone will ever go through, I hope they can find strength.

    too close to home, this is freakin me out

    Oh this makes me angry!

    How ****ty for the cyclists' families. This sort of accident is just a nightmare because there's not much you can do to guard against it, besides stay home.

    What a horrible situation for everyone. My thoughts go out to all involved including the officer.

    I don't think he woke up that morning intending to kill two cyclists. I doubt he's laughing it up right now.

    Just one of those things that reminds us that regardless of how much we mind our own business, enjoy ourselves and live our lives there is always something that can mess it all up. Tell your families and even your friends that you love them. You never know when *****'ll get turned upside down.
