To the Editor:
On Aug. 7 in the early evening, during daylight hours, my son was hit by a car while riding his bike. He is an experienced adult rider.
As a result of the “accident,” he suffered a fractured cheek and received eight stitches around his eyebrow. Did the driver of the car stop to help? No, he/she/they did not. Cowards.
I have no sympathy for cowardice, in any way shape or form. I also believe in an “eye for an eye” when it comes to retribution. I will do everything in my power to find out who this coward is, and if I do, will take matters into my own hands to make sure that this coward experiences a fractured cheek and eight stitches.
I may be getting old, but two years of combat zone experience in Vietnam never really goes away, and I would love to take out some unresolved issues on the coward who could have killed my son, who is a wonderful husband and father.
I would get the police involved, for whom I have great respect, but eventually the case would get to a liberal judge who would more than likely issue a slap on the wrist.
