Reasonable discourse

ProspectHeightsResident from Prospect Heights says:
Terrible. What a disgrace. We better get this situation under control or we are in for a world of hurt. On another note, is that lead photo actually of the victim? Considering the posterior--which is a bit small for a cyclist--I'd imagine not, but want to be sure.
