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,

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.

#14, a cane jammed into the spokes of a bike would make for a serious attitude adjustment. Accidentally of course while slipping as you tried to get out of the way. Sometimes you just have to handle things yourself.

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. Hot Pizza Boy wouldn´t last long here. We´d chuck him into the town lake.

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.

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.

During his town hall tour across Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given explicit notice to pro-life Canadians that their beliefs on abortion make them second-class citizens. (Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as

More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said. (Snip) Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to

The burn continues. What follows are 138 years of scientific records tracing the human transformation of Earth’s climate. The bold pink line up top represents 2017, the third-hottest on record. The only years to exceed it—2015 and 2016—occurred amid a powerful El Nino weather pattern that ripped heat from the Pacific Ocean into the atmosphere. In the absence of El Nino, the swelter of 2017 was unprecedented.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has become "sort of the Steve King of the Senate," a reference to one of the House´s most ardent immigration hardliners. In an interview with MSNBC, Graham, who has advocated for legislative protections for young, undocumented immigrants, rejected the notion of ending family-based immigration in exchange for enshrining the protections of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program into law. A proposal by Cotton and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) seeks to end so-called chain migration, which allows U.S. citizens and permanent residents to sponsor family members abroad to

There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.
