Fresno sheriff’s deputy SHOT WHILE CYCLING

Wow.

An off-duty Fresno County sheriff’s deputy was shot Tuesday afternoon while cycling.

The deputy was cycling when he heard a sound and felt something strike his back. The deputy was knocked from his bike.

The deputy saw the rear passenger of a blue SUV pull a rifle back inside the vehicle.

One wonders if the shooter targeted the victim as a cyclist or as a law enforcement officer. The guy was off-duty and likely out of uniform, right?

California 3 Feet Bill passes Senate

The full California Senate voted in favor of SB1464, the 3 feet bicycle passing bill.

Next stop, the state Assembly Transportation Committee, then the full assembly, and then likely a conference committee to hammer out the inevitable differences between the Assembly and Senate versions of the bill, then an approval vote on the conference changes from both chambers, and finally to Governor Jerry Brown’s desk *whew*.
