This video is absolutely BANANAS!
In case Twitter has decided this video is sensitive and you can't watch it, here's the video:
Is this lady, Democratic Jersey City Councilwoman Amy DeGise, so important she can't even be bothered to stop to see if the man she ran over is okay?
Sure, she had the green light but if you drive away from this type of accident you're an absolutely disgusting person.
From Fox News:
Jersey City Councilwoman Amy DeGise is accused of failing to slow or stop her car after striking the cyclist at the intersection of Forrest Street and Martin Luther King Drive last week.
Traffic camera video released by city officials on Tuesday afternoon shows the black SUV allegedly driven by DeGise striking a man on a bicycle in the middle of the intersection on July 19 without ever slowing down before leaving the scene.
The man, wearing a helmet, backpack, yellow shirt and jean shorts, flipped over and slides off the windshield and then onto the pavement after the impact. The video shows him slowly getting up afterward, his mangled bike lying on the opposite side of the street.
A large dude in a yellow shirt flies up and hits this lady's windshield and she just trucks along like she hit a pothole or something.
Look at her profile:
WNBC reported that officials later said Black was mistaken, and he did not have the green light, but DeGise is still facing mounting calls to resign because she still did leave the crash scene.
"[That] someone of prestige would fall to a point where they would ignore the law they are demanding to uphold, and they are trying to clean our streets or whatever they are calling it, they can't even do it themselves — that really upsets me," Black told HudPost on Tuesday.
Despite facing criticism, a spokesperson for DeGise told news outlets on Friday that the councilwoman would not resign.
"Councilwoman DeGise was elected overwhelmingly just a few months ago and she has no intention of walking away from the commitment she made to serve the people of Jersey City. She will not resign and plans to complete her full term and continue in public service," DeGise's spokesman, Phil Swibinski, said in a statement obtained by Patch.com.
She's waiting for the facts to come out first?
Fact: You literally ran a dude over with your car and drove off and don't deny it.
That's facts enough for most people.
In an interview with NJ Spotlight News on Monday, Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop criticized DeGise's move to leave the scene of the crash, describing it as a "tremendous mistake."
Fulop did add, however, that DeGise took some responsibility for the incident.
The councilwoman at large reportedly claimed she hit her head during the crash and went to a police station several hours later to report the incident after leaving the scene.
She totally pulled a Ted Kennedy. Left a person for dead and then hours later went to the police complaining that she hurt herself.
And she's refusing to resign.
It's hard to give up power!
