Bicycle Coalition Statement on the Death of Tykeem Law

On Saturday July 14, a 14 year old child, Tykeem Law, was murdered while riding his bike on a small city street in South Philadelphia because his presence on a bicycle forced an 18 year old child / driver / gunman to slow. It does not matter if the papers and pundits attribute this murder to Road Rage or to Gun Violence. At least two young lives are lost with Philadelphia’s 220th homicide of 2007. One to a bullet and the other to pulling the trigger.

Members of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia are horrified by this violence and we mourn with Tykeem Law’s family. We are frightened because we know that any of us could have been cycling on city streets at 9th and Federal on Saturday morning. And yet, we remain hopeful because the Coalition is committed to promoting calm, safe and respectful behavior by all road users in Philadelphia and surrounding counties through education and by example.

The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia urges all road users to peacefully coexist. Road use violence simply has to stop! If you care about these issues, please consider joining our campaign for safer streets and more livable neighborhoods

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
