A CYCLIST threw his bike at a van and shouted racial abuse at the driver
after a crash.

The incident happened in Kiln Lane in Headington at around 12.25pm last
Tuesday when a van collided with the cyclist who then caused criminal
damage by throwing their bike multiple times onto the van's bonnet,
punching and kicking the vehicle.

The cyclist then directed racial abuse towards the driver before cycling
off again.

The cyclist is described as a white man, around 5ft 8ins tall and of slim
build.

He was wearing black glasses, a green jacket with a yellow lining and had a
blue backpack. His bike was a racing bike with white handles.

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses, CCTV and dash-cam footage.

A bicycle involved in a collision and "thrown multiple times" at a van
causing damage to the van...

..was in a condition to ride away?

It is necessary to wonder what really caused the damage to the van.
Chuck in the allegation of racist abuse for good measure. Perhaps the
driver was on drugs.

Perhaps some people are in permanent denial when it comes to the
criminal behaviour of far too many fairy-cyclists?

Oh, has the cyclist been found guilty of criminal behaviour in one of
His Majesty's courts?

Perhaps some people know that it is not true to say that drivers never
break the law, are never reckless and are as honest as the day is long.

Come to that, has the fairy-cyclist been found?

Oh... hang on...

[And anyway, come off it... you're scraping the very bottom of that
barrel. If someone damaged or destroyed property belonging to you, one
wonders how sanguine you would be about that and how willing you would

It wouldn't matter what anyone else did or had done. That would never be
any sort of excuse for behaving like the yahoos that so many
fairy-cyclists clearly are.

The best one could say for them is that they can't control themselves
(so really ought to be muzzled and confined).

You appear to be certain the driver didn't make up the story. Of course
you would.

If I had property damaged or destroyed or my life put in danger by a
driver and I gave my opinion that the culprit is evil should be banged
up for life, I would not expect people like you to tell me "that is for
a court to decide".

It is what you do. Except, for some curious reason, when it comes to
pointing a finger at a cyclist.

It is not an excuse.

It means there is no reason why cyclists must be better than drivers.

Why would anyone damage their own property and make up such a story?

It isn't even as though there aren't prior examples, is it? This isn't
the first time we've heard of a fairy-cyclist in a strop throwing their
fairy-cycle onto the bonnets of a cars or van, is it?

That is nevertheless what you would be told about the penalty.

You are calling the victim a liar.

But even you, with all your renowned inventiveness in excusing crimes by
fairy-cyclists, cannot dream up a credible reason for it.

Fairy-cyclists don't need to obey the law, you mean?

It's not the first time you have made that claim, and yet you still
expect to be taken seriously.

It is well known for drivers to damage the vehicle they are in charge
of. Quite remarkable you don't know this fact.

I have heard of it. Perhaps the drugs turned the universal "little dog"
into something much bigger and after hearing of a similar story the
driver decided it might be a good one to try on.

What?

*Deliberately*?

On your planet, perhaps.

That barrel has been well and truly scraped dry.

The courts should indeed be far more robust when sentencing
fairy-cylists for their traffic offences, let alone their frequent
breaches of the Criminal Damage Act and the Offences Against The Person Act.

It absolutely is not. It is all about your appalling attitude to society
and to victims of fairy-cyclists in general.

You are implicitly claiming that fairy-cyclists don't have to obey the law.

And it isn't the first time you have made that claim, explicitly or
implicitly - is it?

You have always refused to condemn law-breaking by fairy-cyclists - even
passing red traffic lights or fairy-cycling the wrong way along a
one-way street.

You have no room to preach morality to anyone.

Oh, it absolutely is.

I just used the phrase "better than".

Very well, cyclists don't have to obey the law any more than drivers do.

A long-time tendency here on the part of the Usual Suspects.

If you cam home and found that your front door had been smashed in and
all your valuables stolen, would you be reluctant to call it a crime
(perhaps on the basis that the intruder was a fairy-cyclist and
therefore might be exempt from any and all blame)?

Remarkable. You posted a question similar to this 11 days ago. After
posting about 75 posts over that time you decide to return to a stale
thread to repeat yourself.

Oh yes. Your blind faith that a driver's sob story is always a true
version of events makes it so.

You really do "think" that the driver damaged his own van by throwing a
fairy-cycle onto the bonnet and then blamed a non-existent
fairy-cyclist, don't you?

Whether you "think" is not my subject.

You *suggested* that the van driver damaged the bonnet of his own van
and blamed a non-existent fairy-cyclist for it.

When you have worked out what "that" refers to you will notice two
statements with a very important difference.
