Entertainment attorney Milton Olin (and one time COO for Napster) was Just Riding Along when he was hit and killed by an LA County Sheriff’s deputy who apparently swerved into the bike lane.
Do LA sheriff cars have video cameras running during routine patrols?

Friends of Anthony Garcia have organized a memorial ride and ghost bike dedication tonight for the teen who was killed while riding his bike on December 3, 2013.
All are invited to ride in memory of Anthony and the other 25 pedestrians and cyclists who have lost their lives to automobiles this year in San Jose.
Starting point is Oak and Vine, where 3 year old Elijah Alvitre was struck and killed as he was being pushed in a stroller on November 24th. The group will ride 8 miles to Branham Lane and Vistapark Drive where the group will dedicate a ghost bike in Anthony’s memory.
Time is tentatively set to gather at 7pm and ride no later than 7:15, but time may change to accommodate the Garcia family. This is a night ride so bring lights and dress for 40 degree weather.
A memorial page and fundraiser for the Garcia family has been established at Go Fund Me if you would like to help the family with their expenses in the wake of their very personal tragedy.
