Gov. Jack Markell, an avid cyclist, attended an event in northwest Washington on Tuesday and police say a trooper was with him
Update: And the Governor's office's statement
As an avid cyclist and governor of the third most Bicycle Friendly State in America, the Governor knows keeping bike lanes clear is critical to the safety of everyone on the road. He understands the concerns being expressed regarding yesterday's incident in D.C., in which a State Trooper assigned to protect the Governor idled his vehicle in a bike lane while waiting for him to exit an event. Law enforcement officers must sometimes block lanes of traffic in order to do their job effectively and the Delaware State Police will be looking at how the officer handled this situation. The Governor appreciates all that our law enforcement officers do and trusts the Delaware State Police will handle their response to the incident appropriately.
Sure, in an emergency, the police can park wherever they want to. I get that. I don't see the emergency here. The governor can walk a bloick, or half a block, to wherever his car can safely pick him. Y'know, like everyone else does.
FYI, only one sitting governor has ever been assassinated (and technically he hadn't been sworn in yet). That was in 1900.
