Police ignored attacks on cyclists by motorists
Stabbed. Early in the evening of July 25, this cyclist was stabbed in the throat with a mechanical pencil by the driver of a limousine.
No mystery who did it. According the to man assaulted, it was the man driving this Lincoln Continental limousine (Brown's favorite) at approximately 7:15 PM on July 25, 1997. The victim called out to police officers on the scene and they ignored him.
This is the third case reported to us of a cyclist wearing a Willie Brown mask singled out for attack. In the other two cases, the attackers were San Francisco police officers. One of the victims was a young African-American woman who was run off the road by a motorcycle cop.
