Live and Awry in New York

Written on July 28, 2008 by mimecine

This is a link to a video of a cyclist being assaulted by a cop

From BoingBoing:

” Although a judge ruled in 2006 that the monthly Critical Mass bicycle rides could proceed without a permit, the NYPD’s stance remains somewhat adversarial. Though the city has not been enforcing the controversial parade permit law when it comes to Critical Mass, police have been ticketing cyclists during the ride for such infractions as not having the required lights.
A representative for TIMES UP! tells us that the cyclist in this video was arrested, held for 26 hours, and charged with attempted assault and resisting arrest.”

Will be looking into this one…
any comments from the Bloomberg crew?
