    Which One of You Ran Over My Friend? (Boston)

    A friend of mine attending Boston University was hit by a fixed-gear cyclist today on Commonwealth avenue near the I-90 bridge (so he tells me). According to him the cyclist in question didn't have brakes and ran a red light. Said cyclist then confronts pedestrian rather angrily, and is treated to a hit upside the head.

    So...Which one of you winners was it?

    I'm not sticking up for the cyclist by any means, but pedestrian/car/bike traffic in that area is insane.

    Can this please turn into a brakes/no brakes thread? Here. I'll start: If that cyclist that hit your friend had had brakes, this never would have happened. Discuss.

    I'd much prefer if this turned into a Blade Runner director's cut vs. original release thread.

    Director's cut rawks. Discuss.

    The OP's post reminds me of the scene in the beginning of old school when wilson gets into the back of the cab and he's like...

    "Uhhh... there aren't any seatbelts, what do you suggest I do?"
    then the cabbie is like....
    "I suggest you stop being such a ******. You're in the back seat"
    Then he slams on his brakes and wilson gets slammed into the safety glass.

    1. No one cares that your friend got hit by a cyclist. (not that I condone it)
    If BU is anything like UND where students BLINDLY walk out in front of cyclists AND CARS because they think that they SHOULD BE ALLOWED to do so. Your pal deserved to get hit.

    2. Who cares if the cyclist didn't have brakes?

    3. Who cares if the cyclist ran a red light? Most peoples idea of running a red light = if you squeeze through as it turns red and nothing happens its legal. But if you squeeze through and hit some gaybots friend from BU you ran a red light.

    4. Why didn't your friend look both ways before actually crossing the street? If I had the right of way and a bus was coming and it didn't appear to be stopping I would probably consider waiting to see what would happen.

    Tell your friend to **** off.

    Im an as*hole and I approve this message.
