Spokane police bend over backwards to blame the victim when a 15-year old bike rider was killed in an apparent crash with a speeding patrol car.

Never mind that it’s far more likely that the victim fell while trying to avoid a collision with a police car racing to respond to an emergency.
Or that he was unlikely to go over the handlebars unless he was doing a wheelie on the wrong damn wheel.
