Sorry seems to be the hardest word

Which do you think is the better response to the appalling incident where a little girl was hit and dragged along the pavement by a cyclist?

THIS:
“We at London Cycling Campaign were shocked to hear that a child had been hit by a cyclist on a pavement in Blackpool. Pavement cycling is both dangerous and illegal. We unreservedly condemn the thoughtless and selfish actions of the individual responsible. We wish the child a full and speedy recovery and our thoughts are with her and our family. We feel that it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this time.”

OR the actual response to the incident?
Just read it and make up your own mind as to which response is more likely to gain the support of the non-cycling public.
