I watched the police body camera video and believe that the officer was courteous and professional. The biker was, at best, uncooperative. This was not a racial bias incident. The NAACP, which I support, should have stayed out of this incident. Their comment about “biking while black” is egregious in itself.

I avoid driving near the Oregon State University campus as much as possible because of poor pedestrian and biker behavior.

I appreciate the police trying to protect and educate us all.
