Did you guys see this?
This cop goes and body-checks this bicyclist completely unprovoked. We usually call that "assault". Granted, these Critical Mass cyclists are annoying, but in no way does that excuse a cop just pushing a guy to the ground.
Apparently it was a rookie cop and he's being disciplined right now. I can't indict the entire NYPD on the actions of this guy. But it's not like this is the first time. Hell, I still remember as far back as the Tompkins Square Park riots - seems like not much has changed, eh?
