I don't think there is enough information to make an informed opinion based on just the video. I ride bikes all the time and do not see any indication that the cyclist tried to stop or avoid the collision. That the police are always right is not a position I take. But to show a 2 year old video without supporting documentation means nothing.
"naive people who not have had training for detecting ironing" quote Rattler
Think want you want rattler, but the cyclist never made the slightest attempt to avoid the collision and the right of way belongs to the pedestrian. Even if it is a cop.
As far as mmarsh question:
"And Secondly How long has this sort of thing been going on?"
Since we have had cops. This is just a poor 2 year old example.
