Critical Mass Bicyclist Assaulted by NYPD

I am not a big fan of Critical Mass, but I'm even less a fan of police who assault people for no reason.

Wow, that's totally ridiculous. I wonder why the one guy was singled out -- maybe he was saying something as he rode up?

Yeah, it is possible the cyclist did something to piss the cop off, but nothing that warranted the action taken. The police report said the cyclist swerved at the cop, but it is obvious from the video that he swerved away and the cop lunged for him. Very disturbing.

That kinda reflects my sentiment, but I always try to give people respect, police or otherwise, until they show they don't deserve it.

I agree. It's good to show people respect until they demand otherwise. Lucky for us, we're not police officers and this is funny even for some police. How can the police not love the muppets?
