Her report on the Fatal accident killing a cyclist by an Olympic bus.....

and an aggrivated driver held up by a cycle demo...In Brazil

It was one of the biggest outrage I've seen the pictures you put the link in the field of Renata Falzoni then a wild one - that is the son of a bitch- just went through your car by means of a bunch of cyclists who locomoviam the streets of Porto Alegre, trampling human beings as if they were bowling cones. The "excuse" of the criminal in question is that he was being "lynched" by cyclists and then ran away going over everything and everyone (bikes and cyclists), a version that is contradicted by several witnesses to the terrible event. The truth is one, and she was captured by the lenses of members who were filming the "Bicicletada" atitudade was a deliberate attempt to murder the group ofbikers who rode there. By a miracle no one died, was left paralyzed or suffered some kind of serious commotion. If such "monstrorista" was not being lynched before, certainly earned it after lichado be, although we know that the true citizen is one who uses the law, not savagery as a way of living in society and will not use violence to seek justice in this case, even at the risk of seeing this criminal get away with this act or any kind of penalty than the maximum provided for attempted homicide multiplied by the number of cyclists he hit.

Not much else to say this absuuuuuurrrrdo unless use this space to make repudiation general chorus of citizens and cyclists who are positioning themselves against the fact occurred and calling for the arrest of the author of this crime. That's why I always ride my bike, most of the time and to the extent possible, the sidewalk, because you can not trust the "monstroristas" we have in this country where impunity is also a trademark of traffic in large cities.
