The tragic October death of Total Slacker drummer Terence Connor remains a mystery. But one former band mate said the incident leaves no question of whether area officials ensure the safety of Bushwick bike riders.
“If they did, my friend would still be alive,” said David Tassy in a phone interview.
Police said the Oct. 1, 2012 accident on Metropolitan Avenue by the warehouses of East Williamsburg was a hit-and-run, and the frequency of such wrecks leaves people who knew Connor wondering what, if anything, the city will do in response to his death.
“No one’s saying anything,” said Tucker Rountree, lead singer of Total Slacker. “Everyone’s acting like nothing happened. And the guy is gone.”
