    Re: Bicyclist Stabbed

    Not to be an alarmist, but what if cyclists are being targeting based on their mode of transportation?

    SF has had 2 unsolved homicides against bike commuters over the past couple of years. Jordan McKay in the Richmond ditrcit and Jennifer Merrit in the OMI.

    Are people not statisfied with yelling profanites and swerving at people riding in the street? Must they go one step further and stab them too? Or shoot them?

    It’s troubling SFPD is not more aggressive in stopping violence against cyclists. Imagine the outrage if they didn’t investigate crimes against gays because they didn’t fit into their worldview!
