Spokane woman is standing up to cyclist
who yelled ‘Hot pizza!’ then smashed
into her on trail

Spokane-Review, by Rich Landers

A speeding bicyclist has taken away something dear to Virginia Pearsall. “I can’t feel safe on the trail anymore,” the 67-year-old Spokane woman said on Friday, walking with a slight limp and her left arm in a sling. The Spokane River Centennial Trail running through Kendall Yards was a major attraction for Pearsall and her husband to move into the development overlooking the Spokane River Gorge. “I walk the trail almost every day,” she said Friday. “Or at least I did.” On Sept. 22, Pearsall was walking near Trail Milepost 24 at Nettleton Street with her sister when she heard someone behind her yell,

Comments:
Unbelievable. This jerk thinks he has the right to plow into other people on a path, that they have to get out of HIS way.

“I hate to slow down,” Haller said when asked why he didn’t. “Most of the time people move. These people wouldn’t move,” Wow, what a dumb thing to say, and what a way to lose a civil suit before it starts.

FTA: ´“I hate to slow down,” Haller said when asked why he didn’t.´

She should sue him. I´m a cyclist and unfortunately I see a lot of bad behavior on multi-use trails. There are children, elderly, strollers and dogs being walked on these trails, if I want to ride my bike there I have to accept this and ride accordingly to keep us all safe. I create the ride routes for my club and we don´t use most of the local trails for this reason. It´s not safe nor fair to other trail users to send a large group of cyclists down a trail at 15 to 25 mph. We stay on the road.

Ignoramus biker. He could see what was in front of him, could brake, should have slowed down. They have bells for bikes to warn people that do not hear the approach. People know what "left side" or "right side" means, and if they do not, the biker should guide them to safety. They call that courtesy. Get some.

As an avid dirt biker (a lot of similarities with mtn bikes) I can comment on one thing that guy said that makes him a totally irresponsible jerk. Anyone that brags about how many broken bones they´ve had has no business on 2 wheels, be it bicycle or motorcycle. He is a menace to himself and those around him.

The cop is wrong. He should have cited the cyclist for failure to yield right of way. And, if the cop wanted to be a hard ass he could have charged him with assault. Taking this to its logical conclusion If I´m in my car I can run over anyone I like? I walk in the mountains quite frequently and about 25% of bicyclists think they own the trail. The remaining 75% are considerate and friendly.

You sure the name was Haller and not Simpson?

No contrition - almost understandable, when he didn´t think he was in the wrong.

No compassion - also almost understandable, when he had injuries of his own.

No concern - egomaniacal, perhaps pathologically so. (Hence, the O.J. comparison)

It´s hard not to wish misfortune on him after reading this sad story.

I am able to walk (hobble) with a cane and take the dog along twice a day. I´ve lost count of the number of times bikers and runners come up on us without warning. A few runners have tried to jump over the dog and of course he leaps up to try to bite them. I don´t wear headphones; I try to be aware of what is going on but I cannot see what is coming up from behind.

When I do see someone approaching us, or when I hear something from behind, I always step off to the side and stand still until the other person has gone by. I hope the cyclist in this case never has another moment´s pleasure on any trail.

Not to paint with broad brush, but I encounter a lot of obnoxious cyclists both on the trail and on the road. Many seem to think that common decency and rules of the road don´t apply to them. They are, after all, superior beings because they are not polluting the earth.

I call out "On your left" and then watch carefully to see what they do. Easily 80% react well, but some do not.

I am always ready to stop before I get to them. Can´t be cruising as fast on a trail as on a road, people can easily not hear you (headsets) and happen to step sideways at just the wrong moment. The cyclist needs to recognize that people can and will do unpredicted things when walking, you can´t be whizzing by at high speed, expecting them to be stationary obstacles. People can and will move, and may very well not know you are there, especially with headphones on.

Defensive bicycling is the only way to do it. Since this guy has had multiple crashes, it appears that he doesn´t really get it.

And yelling afterwards is pretty boorish.
All round jerk, it would appear, from a bicyclist´s point of view, too.

As I pass folks who reacted well, I say "Thanks" as pleasantly as I can.
If they react badly, I am usually busy braking and steering to avoid them to even think of thanking them, and there isn´t anything to thank them for. But no reason to be unpleasant.

We live near the Katy Trail in Dallas - our alley empties out 75´ from the trailhead - when going to work early in the morning - itn the dark - very often we have bikes, walkers, joggers, runners - on the street, in the alley, on both sides of the street, going with and against traffic. People in dark clothing, bikes riding fast. Have consistently called police to advise all of the above to act responsibly - does not seem to be a concern until someone is accidentally hurt seriously.

During the day bicycles routinely flip the bird if you honk at them to a) get out of the middle of the road, b) failure to slow down when running stop signs, or c) ride up to the front of the line waiting at traffic light. We know it is not all bikers, but a good percentage are jerks.

She absolutely should sue him. Alpha Hotels like this jerk never learn until the lesson is jammed down their stupid throats.

Like other posters, I too am a cyclist; I own and ride a street/touring bike and a road/trail hybrid in the Coachella Valley. We have multi-use trails and pathways in and around town; morning walkers will often walk shoulder-to-shoulder across a path so they can chat while they walk. No big deal; I usually stay off these paths but when there is no safe alternative a short beep from a handlebar-mounted traffic alert with a polite "behind you" and friendly passing wave works every time. It´s no biggie.

This guy is no cyclist. He´s a two-wheeled slob and a moron. I support "Spokane Woman" 100%.

So Justin Haller hits an older woman, old enough to be his mother, with his bike and blames her for not getting out of his way because he hates to slow down. For anybody. And Justin Haller thinks that old ladies with puppies and young ladies with babies are the worst! Justin Haller is a photographer who also, according to Ripoff Report, doesn´t return deposit money or apologize to brides whose weddings he decides to skip. Justin Haller sounds like he has problems with women. Justin Haller has broken many bones riding his bike. Methinks Justin Haller has a small problis riding for an even bigger fall.

I live a little north of Arizona State U. We have a trail that walkers, joggers, and bikers use. Lots of students going to class on their bikes. I walk or jog there a lot. I´ve never met anyone who wasn´t polite and courteous. We follow the basic rules of the road. Stay to the right unless passing. I have to say the students are some of the nicest kids you´d ever meet.

My son is a serious cyclist and does Iron Man regularly. He and his buddies are considerate; they consider themselves professionals and treat everyone on the road with respect. The jerks I meet up with come up very quietly behind my dog and I and yell "Behind You" very loudly once they are level with me. It is deliberately rude and aimed at confusing me, a senior citizen, and it has happened too many times. They ride off laughing. I live for seeing (1) Donald Trump as President and then succeeding; and (2) seeing these cyclists get their comeuppance. So, Ms. Pearsall, go forward with your lawsuit and know you have thousands, probably hundreds of thousands, of people wanting you to be successful - - and get lots of money!

Bicycles are vehicles, and as such must obey the laws of the road.

If you can´t drive up behind someone, yell at them, then knock them down with your car, then you can´t do it with your bike, either.

There´s a busy trail near me, and the bicyclists riding the local streets to get to the trail behave abominably.

Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.

SEATTLE - A shuttle van plowed down a busy sidewalk Thursday in the heart of Seattle´s downtown retail district and crashed into the front of the Gap store, injuring at least four people. Officers and medics responded to the scene, at Fifth Avenue and Pine Street, just before noon after receiving reports of pedestrians struck.

WASHINGTON (AP) — They were the 13 days that transformed the White House. Even for an administration that spent most of 2017 throwing off headlines at a dizzying pace, events in the second half of July unfolded at breakneck speed. They encapsulated both the promise and peril of President Donald Trump’s first year in office — and yielded aftershocks that reverberate within the White House even as the calendar turns to 2018. The two-week span laid bare the splintering of Trump’s relationships with two influential Cabinet members, foreshadowed the reach of the Russia probe into the interior of his orbit;

The minuscule Galilean town in which Joseph and Mary spent their lives and raised their son Jesus was, quite literally, a joke. “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” asked one disciple, when he heard where the Messiah was from. Some scholars posit that this was a popular saying in the first century. In any event, Nazareth was on the fringes of the Roman Empire. Roman roads avoided it until the second century. Jesus came from a backwater of a backwater; he and his mother and father, the figures at the heart of the Christmas story, were most likely considered throwaway

Kent Wash. - It was supposed to be a second chance at a new life. A three-strikes felon serving life in prison was released early. But, two years later, he and another man showed up to the Kent Regional Justice Center Monday to face murder charges. The alleged victim´s family was also there. The Cabrera family said it was a struggle to show up in court and come face-to-face with the two men suspected of killing their loved one, 24-year-old David Cabrera. “It was pretty hard. It was very difficult for whole family,” said Daniel Cabrera, the victim’s twin brother.

Putting people on a pedestal is risky. It’s too easy for them to fall off. Even so, I don’t think we can, or should, stop ourselves from looking for people to admire. We’re always finding out that someone who seemed wonderful wasn’t really all that we imagined. And lately there’s been a hailstorm of revelations about well-known and well-liked people, mostly men, who have behaved badly toward women and in some cases other men.

Kaspersky’s anti-virus software had automatically scraped powerful digital surveillance tools off a computer in the United States and the analysts were worried: The data’s headers clearly identified the files as classified. “They immediately came to my office,” Kaspersky recalled, “and they told me that they have a problem.” He said there was no hesitation about what to do with the cache.

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he

Actress and yogurt salesman Jamie Lee Curtis knows exactly whom to blame for a false alarm that told Hawaiians an incoming ballistic missile was detected. It was all President Trump´s fault. Duh. Now, never mind that Trump was in Florida at the time. On the golf course. And forget that Hawaii´s Emergency Management Agency (EMA), run by the Hawaiian state government, apologized for setting off the false alarm when someone pushed the wrong button. In a Saturday afternoon post on Twitter, Curtis attacked Trump, writing "YOU DID THIS!" "This Hawaii missile scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that

This is the shocking moment a massive brawl broke out in a California pizza restaurant over a missing iPhone that turned out to have been in the lost and found the whole time. Police were called to John´s Incredible Pizza Company in Newark´s NewPark Mall on Saturday night after violence erupted. It broke out after a girl missing her phone had approached a group to see if they´d seen it but quickly descended into chaos, with video showing two large groups of people exchanging blows and screaming at each other. Newark police officers had to call in officers from the Fremont Police Department

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Monday announced she plans to boycott President Trump´s State of the Union address to Congress at the end of the month, joining a handful of other Democratic lawmakers who are skipping the annual event. "I´m here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to say I will not be going to the State of the Union," Jayapal said in a video posted on social media. "I think it is absolutely unacceptable to see the racism and the hatred coming out the White House in a way in which this president is fueling the flames of divisiveness across

Former President Bill Clinton said on Twitter Saturday that no Clinton Foundation funds were used to pay for his daughter´s wedding. After President Trump reportedly made crude remarks about Haiti and other less-developed countries, some on the right pointed to alleged mishandling of Haitian earthquake relief funds by the Clinton Foundation. On Twitter, President Clinton slammed the notion that any funds from the foundation, whether earmarked for Haiti or not, were used in association with his daughter Chelsea´s wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky. No Clinton Foundation funds—dedicated to Haiti or otherwise—

Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson added her name to a growing list of Democratic lawmakers who say they are fed up with President Trump and will boycott his State of the Union address at the end of the month. (snip) “For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement late Sunday. “I have no doubts that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty

Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates

Yesterday, writing about former president Obama’s hack remark to David Letterman about the absence of “a common baseline of facts” shared by Americans, I asked whether Obama really is as shallow a thinker as he appears to be. It was not a rhetorical question. To be sure, Obama has failed to display appreciable depth since he wrote his fictionalized autobiography, Dreams From Father. His signature pronouncements and phrases are banal and borrowed. “The audacity of hope,” borrowed from his spiritual mentor the Reverend Wright. “Just words,” lifted from Deval Patrick. “You didn’t build that,” the obnoxious contribution of Elizabeth Warren. “Right
