Facebook has refused to take down a page advocating violence against cyclists accordig to SFStreets.org.
The Bad Lawyer Blawg is written by both a Bad Lawyer and a cyclist. In the latter category, the Bad Lawyer has twice fallen prey to malicious motorists and once to a clueless driver. Nonetheless, I continue to ride.
I'm with FB, on this one. As a much wiser cycling-journo-attorney told me recently, the facebook site creates an interesting resource for the police and prosecutors to look at when investigating driver-crimes against cyclists. One of the elements that sealed the deal for the prosecution of Dr. Christopher Thompson was his prior acts. I wonder if he'll be able to link to this site from his prison cell where he will be spending the next 5 years?
