"Crazed cyclist"

It's good to see that you endorse that description.

The crazed *cyclist* complains of being impeded... you couldn't make it
up, could you?

It seems professional drivers can obtain a special version of dashcam
that automagically erases the embarrassing stuff that happens before the
main event.

So why did the 'victim' not show that part of the video?

Was there any dashcam footage?

I only saw some post-incident still photographs of the damage to the
victim's property, caused by the criminal.

The Daily Mail (or its website) was not the victim. But the Daily Mail
chooses what it wishes to publish on its website, so perhaps that would
be a good place to start your investigation.

As it happens, though, a crazed cyclist complaining of being "impeded"
would probably not be visible to the dashcam of the vehicle he proceeded
to vandalise, would he?

See whether you can work out why that is.

You are unable to deduce from my comments (and Simon's) that events
which should have been recorded by the dashcam are missing?

What is "footage"?

Can we use this when a bicycle user or pedestrian has skin and organ
damage caused by a motorist?

You seem to have rather missed the point (again).

The cyclist's "complaint"is reported to have been that he and his bike
were obstructed by a car. Unless the car had a "rear dashcam", it is
hard to see how even you could convince yourself that footage of the
"obstruction" could exist.

What is "footage"?


It is the term used of video or film sequences. It is a carry-over into
the video world from the days when all moving pictures had to be
captured on chemical film (measured by the foot).

Fancy your pretending not to know that.

victim's property, caused by the criminal.

Are you talking about the results of:

(a) a traffic accident, or

(b) a deliberate act of criminal damage caused by a cyclist in a fit of
raging pique?

It's reported, huh? OK, so let's see the conditions in front of the
vehicle and any reason why it was going slowly or stopping. It is also
not unknown (at least, it's something just about every cyclist knows)
for drivers to overtake and then cut in and stop.

I just wondered why you use such an outdated expression. You would also
find that the expression "video" came in with television, long after the
development of film.

A "traffic accident" is usually caused by a person or persons, rarely by
a sky fairy.

(b) a deliberate act of criminal damage caused by a cyclist in a fit of raging pique?


Such a leading question doesn't deserve a reply.

I thought that in UK law a person was not a criminal until found guilty
of a crime by a court?

Well, the crazed cyclist (which is how he is reported) is reported to
have offered the "justification" for the crime that he had been
obstructed. It's all there, at the same source.

OK, so let's see the conditions in front of the
vehicle and any reason why it was going slowly or stopping. It is also
not unknown (at least, it's something just about every cyclist knows)
for drivers to overtake and then cut in and stop.


You're best asking the publisher for that (if there is anything to see,
that is - what's the betting that the source of the obstruction was a
red traffic light, meaningless to the average London cyclist, crazed or
otherwise?).

So contact the Daily Mail. And do let us all know how you get on.

It isn't outdated.

I hope that helps.

You would also
find that the expression "video" came in with television, long after the
development of film.


Do you mean the expression "video" as used in my explanation to you of
what "footage" is?

I only saw some post-incident still photographs of the damage to the
victim's property, caused by the criminal.

Are you talking about the results of:


(a) a traffic accident, or


A "traffic accident" is usually caused by a person or persons, rarely by
a sky fairy.


And?

(b) a deliberate act of criminal damage caused by a cyclist in a fit
of raging pique?


Such a leading question doesn't deserve a reply.


You mean you can't think of a wriggle to excuse the cyclist's blatant
and deliberate act of criminal damage.

I thought that in UK law a person was not a criminal until found guilty
of a crime by a court?


Here's a hint: Sub-judice starts with the charge (when the matter is now
within the jurisdiction of a court), not at the moment of the crime.
