Police Attack NYC Critical Mass Rider

Regardless of how you feel about Critical Mass, this is a pretty disturbing video.  I'm actually fairly ambivalent about CM, and I don't endorse anyone intentionally breaking traffic laws while riding, but I do believe that cyclists have as much right to the road as anyone else.  That the fellow was arrested and charged on top of getting randomly creamed by a cop, is just the height of absurdity.


  1. I'm looking at your post after writing my own about police harassment. Mine lacks the brutality of this startling footage. I'm so glad to read at Gothamist that the officer was taken off the street.

  2. yo soy policia y siento bochorno por la conducta y el mal ejemplo que veo en este policia , esta actitud debe coregirse y denunciarse no se debe tolerar en ningun momento .
