Pistol-packing pedaller 

To the editor,

With reference to Martin Tomlinson and Matthew MacDonald, who both recently wrote to The Coast about their experiences with motorists knocking down cyclists: these letters came after The Coast featured the letter from the "Anonymous Asshole" on Aug 2, who threatened cyclists riding in the middle of the road by saying that he may just have to give them "a nice little love tap."

I read this story on the web, from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "Milwaukee bicyclist shoots motorist after near collision." A bicyclist shot a motorist after the man's car nearly hit the bike on Friday night, police said.

The 28-year-old driver stopped to check on the bicyclist, who had fallen to the pavement, police said.

"The bicyclist got up, fired three shots and hit the driver once in the shoulder, police said. The motorist drove to the house of a friend, who then took him to a hospital. He was treated and released. Police said they were looking for the bicyclist on Saturday."
