An alleged white racist ran over a black man who was protesting in Bakersfield on Wednesday. The man has not been arrested but we will change that with your help. The man posted last year that he would run people over if they were in the street & now’s acting on his words…
Fast forward to last Wednesday
Police are trying to protect him .
Officers from our Major Collision Investigation Team (MCIT) conducted a speed comparison to determine the speed the driver was traveling at. The speed limit is 45mph in the 3100 block of California Ave. Based on estimates from our MCIT, driver was traveling at a speed of 45mph. https://t.co/8Kzl0Qfi69— Bakersfield Police (@bakersfieldpd) June 7, 2020
Again, we are aware there are multiple people claiming to be witnesses on social media. At this time, we have only had a handful of witnesses come forward w/statements. Investigators on scene asked multiple individuals if they saw the collision. Few agreed to share statements. https://t.co/ehARpLiseC— Bakersfield Police (@bakersfieldpd) June 7, 2020
Robert was NOT between adjacent intersections controlled by traffic signal devices, so he COULD cross the road. The car was far enough that Robert was following (a) and even so, (b) states that (a) doesn’t excuse the driver for not looking out for pedestrians on the roadway. pic.twitter.com/2QwjVDCk3g— htizn2 (@htizn2) June 7, 2020
