Ghost Bike Memorial for Walter Freeman


While the family of Walter Freeman asks the SDPD to provide them with some support after an officer struck and killed Freeman on November 9, the bicycling community has lent its own show of support for the avid and safety-conscious cyclist. NBC 7/39 reports that a Ghost Bike memorial has appeared at the intersection where Freeman was killed.

The SDPD continues to claim that Freeman veered directly into the path of the oncoming cruiser after exiting a filling station driveway, but has still not concluded its investigation into the matter, three and half weeks after the incident. They had originally promised results of the investigation within a week of Freeman’s death.
