Stumbled upon this story out of the UK and thought I should share it. If only every hit and run offender was dumb enough to post about it on the internet.

Read the story here.

I was much more amused by the response from the local police twitter suggesting that she come to the station. LOL

I concur with Drewbacca that the police replying via tweet had me chuckling. I’m forever amazed by the stupidity, ignorance, and blatant lack of empathy among some people, in cars or not.

I will admit to being aggravated excessively by anyone who uses misinformation to justify an opinion or action. Perhaps it’s a mechanism of my general disdain for conceding fault. That, and I like to educate myself, especially when it’s something I am invested in or passionate about.

We don’t know what happened.

It might have been a coupla jerks doing jackass stunts in the street.

It might have been reasonable riders filtering and receiving the ire of cager cops stuck in traffic.

We just dont’t know.

bb: you are observing the sublime warp and woof of the bikepgh message board, as it seamlessly weaves our dreams and aspirations together in its mysterious and unexpected ways, blessing us with new and profound insights, illuminating biking and, yes, the human condition itself…

Or, maybe Mick screwed up.

Yeah, I was trying to post in the South side cop fleeing thread. (or so I’m claiming)

That was yesterday. Today, I clicked on the SS thread and this came up. I was like WTF? Why are people saying I’m confused? (before I looked at the top of the thread.)

Artificial intelligence vs natchurl stupididy.
