Well this one looks a little more clear cut, but still not a good way to start the season.

It’s hard to condone it, but still I am starting to notice some bias in these articles about how they are quick to describe every detail about how the accident would be attributed to the cyclist rather than any details about the traffic or car drivers in question.

A death like this is still a tragedy no matter who died or who is at fault, as is any death by autos. I think it’s still a tragic reflection of our society about how we tend to downplay and accept auto-related deaths in comparison to, say homicides or other unnatural deaths.

unfortunately, all the details will come from the people who survived.

I cant imagine the level of callous it takes to

blame a child for his own death several times in as

many sentences.

And there’s also the question of why getting to the park should be that dangerous.
