The cyclist who went viral after intentionally knocking down a 5-year-old girl made headlines again.
He received great criticism in the past for showing his knee to a young girl, who fell down and injured herself. And just in case that news wasn’t enough, he made more heads turn. After that, news broke out on how he had to pay compensation. In case you’re thinking it’s a huge amount, well, think again. He has to pay just 1 Euro for the heinous crime.
Despite footage of the incident going viral, people couldn’t stop criticizing authorities in Belgium. They felt that the courts failed to take necessary action against the cyclist. And now, the news is going viral like it’s no one’s business.
Here are more striking revelations on the case that might leave you baffled beyond belief.
Cyclist knocks down a young child
You may have heard of plenty of heartless crimes in this world. But truly, nothing beats this next one. One man went viral after receiving the greatest amount of criticism from all over. He not only knocked a little girl down, but he also refused to accept his mistake too.
When the video’s footage went viral from Belgium, many couldn’t even believe what was going on.
Therefore, as you can probably imagine, he also received criticism across the board. But what made his compensation amount entail such a tiny value?
Criticism across the board
The viral clip showcased the cyclist doing the unthinkable. Here, he sticks out a knee, just so he could pass by the 5-year-old. Therefore, on that note, he knocked her down too.
Reports confirmed how the incident took place in the snow-covered region of Baraque Michel in Belgium. Enrage and fury gripped people from all around.
Prompting great anger and fear over social media, the viral video showed the cyclist sticking out his knee, as soon as he passed by the child. And in the end, it all prompted anger throughout social media.
On that note, the cyclist was previously found guilty of the heinous crime. And this brought smiles upon so many people’s faces. But wait, there is certainly more to that notion.
Christmas day turns bitter
Did you know that the bizarre and shocking incident took place on Christmas Day? Yes, it did and now people can’t get over it.
The dad actually shot his daughter and his wife on that chilly morning. But little did he know that the family would encounter a heartless man.
Moreover, right after the incident, the father chased the man for miles. However, he failed to get a hold of him. Putting his brain cells to the test, the father thought it would be a good idea to report the findings to the police.
Hence, a complaint went forward to the cops, based on a witness’s findings.
The case takes a turn for the worst
With the footage as proof, the man who made the child fall down intentionally received prison for a year. But that wasn’t it. In just a short span of time, the courts reversed the decision for the most bizarre reason. They felt the man suffered enough through the hands of social media critics.
On that note, they suspended his jail sentenced and thought it would be okay for him to pay one Euro as compensation money.
Now, they believe that nothing happened intentionally. They believed the man’s claims of how he felt his rear wheel slide off.
Do you agree with the court’s findings?
