Here is what happens when a bicyclist kills a pedestrian.
"The Marin County bicyclist who fatally struck a pedestrian crossing the street in San Francisco's Castro neighborhood was sentenced Thursday to three years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service."
Lets see how they will handle this? Will it be equal justice?

The SFPD doggedly pursued the case you mentioned. Released tons of information during the investigation. And settled to avoid possibly losing in trial.
In the case mentioned above, the SFPD did NOTHING until they were presented with a video they said didn't exist and contacted by the family's lawyer. They did worse than nothing. Sgt Ernst came by the memorial to hassle family, friends and cyclists.
So, no, they will not handle it the same and it won't be equal justice.
Drivers who kill cyclists and stay around and cooperate with police are very rarely charged with anything. Quit whining that for once the SFPD is doing their job.

She was a member of our community and now she's gone. Car to bicycle, or bicycle to pedestrian, imagine how you would feel if she was your daughter and on the losing end of the equation. And to make matters worse, if that's even possible under these circumstances, with video apparently showing wrongfully so. Very sad. My heart goes out to Amelie's family and friends.
