The Bryant media spin machine is now calling the death of Darcy Sheppard a ‘fatal accident’, and has done everything in its power to paint Bryant as the innocent victim of an attack by a drunk and out of control cyclist.
What they’d very much like all of us to ignore is the initial incident that sparked this entire confrontation – Bryant hitting Shepherd’s bike with his car.
Have you ever ridden a bicycle in city traffic? If you have, imagine the impact of a full sized car hitting you. Would you emerge unscathed? Would you be afraid, or even angry?
And how much differently would you feel about this whole ‘Michael Bryant is the real victim here’ spin machine, if you could see footage of him setting this entire tragedy into motion?
