The bicyclist ran a red light which is illegal in the state of New Jersey last time I checked. Closed circuit video footage proves it, and it is obvious to those with their eyes wide open. But could he have made a human error and truly believed the light was green?
In the crash report, the bicyclist told cops he had a green light and the right of way. He also told the media the same. Facts are always important, and the fact here is that he either lied twice adding insult to injury or his action or decision was not intentional. Any court in the country can examine the video footage and see clearly as day that the proof is the truth.
What irritates me is it is peculiar how certain politicians fiercely demanded the video footage right away! As it turns out, it is this evidence that proves Councilwoman Amy DeGise, the motorist, was not the guilty party. Ms. DeGise undoubtedly made a report to the lawful authority. They were so quick to judge her and came to adverse conclusions before they had all the facts. My suspicion is that certain politicians were just looking to vilify the Councilwoman At Large.
