Only too bad that they couldn't nail Mr. Quarters for DUI as well. You get the feeling that he'll do it again real soon, just by the way he acted in that video. Turd.
The guy obviously is extremely connected, but the video contains evidence of at least 2 felonies:
- falsely claiming to be a police officer, like Tom pointed out, and
- aggravated battery for intentionally hitting a guy with his truck.
I already dug Susana Mendoza, but NOW I want to work for her gubernatorial campaign. Run, Susana, run!!
I met her at Bike the Drive a few years ago when she was riding it with her family. She made a great impression then, and she just keeps building on it.
I wonder if John Kass will continue to call cyclists "little bike people" after this.
Of course he will.
Whatever we may think of Kass's prior columns he did praise a Democrat who was a good citizen in protecting a cyclist. I almost spilled coffee on myself when I read his column. There are times when our humanity overcomes whatever views or differences we may have. Cheers to both Kass and Mendoza as some good came of this potentially ugly incident.
I still think of Kass as that troll that is squatting on Royko's spot.
That is exactly what he is! thanks for the imagery! :)
