Police Officer Looking At Phone Hits Cyclist While Making Turn

July 30, 2018

Note: Some very appropriate cursing by the cyclist.

This is a video from Peculiar, Missouri of a police officer looking at his phone while making a left turn and hitting a stationary bicyclist waiting at the intersection. The cyclist calls him out for texting and driving but the officer insists he wasn't texting, just looking at his phone. Well that's a relief. The officer has since been placed on leave with pay while the Missouri State Highway Patrol conduct an investigation as to whether the officer was distracted while driving, even though I'm 100% certain we can all agree we just watched a video of a police officer distracted by his phone hit a cyclist and then acknowledge that's exactly what happened.

Keep going for the video while I ask if I can just start sleeping at the office instead of cycling home.

Thanks to MSA, who agrees cell phones will kill us all.

    Further proof you cannot trust the cops.

    Something about that video seems weird. I can't really imagine how (or why someone would risk it) but just the way the guy talks after he's been hit, it almost sounds scripted. How Peculiar.

    Fucking pig should get eaten alive.

    Cyclist stops in the road and then complains when hit by a motor vehicle. Seems legit.

  • You have zero understanding of the law nor what is going on here if that's a real response to this.

  • GeneralDisorder

    If Johnny law here had his eyes open he would have been able to successfully navigate around this other vehicle.

    In pretty much everywhere bicycles are considered vehicles.

    Cyclist is clearly on the right hand side of the road - which is where cyclists are technically supposed to be - and stopped because it's a 3 way intersection with an oncoming vehicle. Vehicle is taking a left hand turn, which should remain in the opposite lane from the cyclist. He's cutting his corner so tight he's in the wrong lane. Even without lines you tend to stick to driving along the right hand side.

    if the cyclist was black he would of run him over, gotten out of the car and shot him in the back.

    Why did he stop for so long? He got what he deserved

  • ^ This person is mentally ill.

  • Sky Overdrive

    Very peculiar.

  • Bling Nye

    Thank fuck someone said it.

  • paperboy

    The cop actually said "ociffer", like the old joke that never really happens. Liquid lunch?

  • Douchy McDouche

    He hit a white guy? Justice will be swift and without mercy.

  • Meh

    Sue that motherfucker obviously.

  • Closet Nerd

    "Aaaah! You mother fucker!"

    Another reason why my bicycle has an ejector seat.

  • GeneralDisorder

    That sounds safe.

  • TheQiwiMan

    It's okay guys, the Police will investigate the Police and make sure the Police did nothing wrong.

  • CrazyUncleNicola

    If only they had some internal department that investigated such affairs.
