  1. Notice all the media outlets are running the “drunken courier” angle.
    But no one is reporting if Bryant had any drinks during his dinner? Was a road side test conducted?

  2. It is really comforting to see vividly how much respect our attorney general has toward human life, eh? We can all rest for sure that the justice of our society is in good hand. Sigh,

  3. Dave, if he had not had any drink, it will only make his act more hideous. Making such a move with a clear mind is nothing short of cold-blooded murder.

  4. This story is not about cycling, its about drunken violence. Drinking and biking, a story nobody ever talks about.

    On another topic somebody bemoaned here way back that security cameras don’t do anything. I wonder if capturing a guy that torched a 750,000 public bus counts. I wonder if those cameras on Bloor will help us understand what happened the other night counts.
