Assaulted Cyclist on Summer St. 830am Wed.

Posted on Fri, Jan 30, 2015 at 4:00 AM

To the black guy that assaulted me at 830am on Summer Street Wednesday morning, and damaged my bicycle. Go to anger management. You need help. I banged on your window because you were putting my safety at risk when you tried passing me aggressively with no space between my bike and your car. All for what, to save you the extra one or two seconds before you got to the cars in front of me? It's a narrow road. What were my options? Am I supposed to turn on my magical rocket jets and fly into the sky so you can save two seconds? Were you really in that much of a hurry? I didn't damage your car. But you destroyed my bicycle. It is currently being repaired, thanks to credit cards. I am a student, I have no money. I can't even afford to buy food and I was just about to turn onto college street to go get dental work at Dal. You got out of your car, shoved me off my bicycle, unprovoked. I tried to talk to you calmly. I tried to explain that I didn't hurt your car, that I only banged with a gloved open hand, on the window, because you were driving me into parked cars as you tried passing me. I have served you coffee probably 200 times or more. You always seem in a rush when you leave. I've never seen you smile, so perhaps your life has difficulties in it that I don't know of. I've greeted you as friendly as I could each time. My goal in life is to try to make people happier. What is it in life that makes you lash out at innocent people? I am charging you with assault, and I am charging you for damaging my bicycle. It's an expensive bike, and my only transportation. You damaged my wrist, and now I need to miss classes. I hope you get some help for your problems. Your woman seemed very nice. She tried to stop you. We all tried to stop you calmly. You let your anger spiral out of control for what really wasn't anything to get angry over. Take responsibility for your actions. See you in court. —Assaulted Cyclist
