“LAPD Officer” questions whether people actually hate cyclists
A recent commenter on the Hummer incident articles called the notion that people hate cyclists “freaking ridiculous and idiotic”. The comment made by “LAPD”, has an associated email of “firstname.lastname@example.org” (LAPD’s domain is lapd.lacity.gov, not lapd.gov) and originates from an IP address within the Department of Veterans Affairs in DC:
Do you people honestly believe that people “hate” cyclist? [sic] That is the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard. It’s like saying I hate runners. Freaking ridiculous and idiotic to the utmost.
Readers – what’s your experience? Do people actually hate cyclists?
