Lies.

It was a cyclist who tried to murder that poor woman.


Why would a cyclist need to go jogging?


What's the relevance of your question?


The (obvious) answer is left as an exercise for the student.

So you don't have one.

Fair enough. I knew you wouldn't.

You can lead a person to knowledge but you can't make them think.
The answer is obvious to anyone with an IQ greater than their shoe size.

I see they got him
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-40889511

"He was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm."

But "The woman, who received minor injuries"

Something doesn't add up.


Indeed - that should be ABH not GBH. Maybe the report is wrong and it
was attempted GBH.

It's actually very hard to see exactly what happened. Did he actually
push her or just run into her?


He turned towards her, stuck his arms out and moved slightly across
the pavement, and to shove her so hard sideways he wasn't just trying to
avoid a collision.

If he just run into her how do we know he didn't just stumble at just
the wrong moment or that he just wasn't looking where he was going?

Why didn't the woman avoid him?

I'm guessing she said something that annoyed him. Nothing that
justifies being pushed under a bus.

Nowhere better illustrated than via your posts.

Quite so.

Well the movement I saw was at or only momentarily before the collision.
I can see why people may interpret it as a deliberate act but from the
resolution of the video I couldn't rule out a reflex response of someone
not paying attention to where he was going.

Given that I would naively think that the not looking where a runner
going scenario is the much more likely, I'm less convinced by the
appearance of a push. Not saying it wasn't, just that I'm not totally
convinced.
