Imperfect as it is, we have a legal system which will deal with those mistakes, and the result will not satisfy everyone.

Some of those real people will come away changed for the better and others won’t.

At the end of it all this has and will damage many lives.

My prayer when I get on the road is that no one gets hurt on my trip.
Well said. In the meantime the A&S' self styled representatives of bicyclists will probably continue to respond to snippets of news reports and internet chatter about bicycling traffic incidents with less than helpful speculation about the incident, and load the responses with assumptions, guesses, lynching rhetoric and imaginary scenarios about the actions and motivations of their assumed and imaginary oppressors.
