    Cop that killed bicyclist while using laptop will not face charges...

    Deputy who killed former Napster COO after drifting into the bike lane while distracted by his laptop will NOT face charges because he was answering a work-related email

    California prosecutors have declined to file charges against a sheriff's deputy who struck and killed a prominent entertainment attorney and former Napster executive with his patrol car last year.

    Deputy Andrew Wood was apparently distracted by his mobile digital computer when his patrol car drifted into the bike lane, running over cyclist Milton Olin Jr.

    Olin, a 65-year-old attorney and former chief operating officer of the online file-sharing service Napster, was riding in Calabasas in December when he was hit.

    Prosecutors said in a letter released Wednesday and cited by Los Angeles Daily News that because Wood was acting within the course of his duties when typing into his computer, criminal charges are not warranted.

    Under the law, law enforcement officials are allowed to use electronic wireless devices while carrying out their duties.
    Milton Olin, a married father of two, was riding his bike in the 22400 block of Mulholland Highway at around 1pm on December 8, 2013, when Deputy Wood's patrol car slammed into him.

    Olin was pronounced dead at the scene and the deputy was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

    Wood was returning from a fire call at Calabasas High School and was on patrol when the accident occurred.

    ‘He was responding to a deputy who was inquiring whether the fire investigation had been completed,’ the letter from the prosecutor’s office stated. ‘Since Wood was acting within the course and scope of his duties when he began to type his response, under Vehicle Code section 23123.5, he acted lawfully.

    ‘Wood briefly took his eyes away from the road precisely when the narrow roadway curved slightly to the left without prior warning, causing him to inadvertently travel straight into the bike lane, immediately striking Olin.’

    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Unpreventable accident. Very sad, but at least the biker died for a good cause.

    Who knows what would have happened, if the Officer hadn't sent that email in time.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    It makes perfect sense if you dispense with the ridiculous myths and face the reality. THEY are not "public servants" but simply part of the parasitic ruling class. YOU are the slave, THEY the masters. Simple.

    The article doesn't say whether the bicyclist was using his phone at the time or not. It's possible he did this to himself.

    Now that's some amazing security value Milton Olin received. Total tax value for himself and his family.

    So it is perfectly reasonable to email and drive and plow down and kill bicyclists , so long as the emails are work related.

    As long as your profession is heroic in nature, yes.
