No justice for Dionette Cherney
This letter to the editor appeared in the hard copy of yesterday's edition, but it can't be found on the online version of the Examiner:
No justice for woman killed in bike accident
I too have been waiting to see justice served for the horrendous death of the poor woman hit July 5 by a bicyclist who ran a red light. And as pointed out in the Friday letter by former State Sen. John Burton, there has been no action for three months.
Where is the justice for the victim? Where is the exalted Bicycle Coalition standing up to take responsibility? Where is the police chief or the mayor?
If this person had been killed by a car we would never hear the end of it. The righteous would be vilifying every motorist from here to New York and back. But I guess when one of your own was responsible, you look at a death differently.
Maybe Burton has a point about politicians not wanting to offend the bicycle lobby before Election Day.
