Cyclists On Ghost Ride Remember Rick Archer


ON HIS LICENSE REGARDLESS OF THE CRIMINAL CHARGES WHICH HE WILL ANSWER TO TOMORROW. DOZENS OF CYCLISTS TAKING TO THE STREETS FOR WHAT THEY CALLED A GHOST RIDE TO REMEMBER THE CYCLISTS HIT AND KILLED IN A HIT-AND-RUN. 24 HOURS LATER AFTER AN ARREST WAS MADE HERE — NOT JUST ABOUT HONORING RICK’S MEMORY, BUT ABOUT TAKING ACTION FOR CHANGE AND MADE THEIR PLEA TO THE CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS TONIGHT DURING A MEETING. QUICKLY AND QUIETLY THEY PEDALED THROUGH THE STREETS, HUNDREDS OF CYCLISTS ON A GHOST RIDE, REMEMBERING RICK ARCHER. FRAGILE LIVES ON THE ROADS. THIS EMOTIONAL TRIBUTE HERE, WHERE THE 29-YEAR-OLD WAS HIT AND DRAGGED COMING HOME FROM A MOVIE. YOU’RE TALKING DOLLARS AND NUMBERS AND I’M THINKING ABOUT HUMANS. THE WOMAN WHO ONCE CALLED HIM HUSBAND AND NOW CALLS FOR THE SAFER STREETS. THE GHOST RIDE ENDED HERE AT CITY HALL AND 50 PEOPLE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK. I NEED YOU TO SIGN IN. HOURS EARLIER, DOZENS OVERFLOWED NO COURT. MANY FROM THE ETHIOPIAN COMMUNITY, THE DRIVER ACCUSED OF KILLING ARCHER AND THEN DITCHING THE CAR. I KNOW HE’S 25 AND YOUNG. YOU KNOW, IT’S HARD OF THE EMPATHY FOR SOMEONE THAT TOOK SOMEONE SO VALUABLE OUT OF MY LIFE. HE KILLED SOMEONE.==THAT DRIVER TURNED HIMSELF IN LAST NIGHT AFTER MORE THAN A WEEK.
