 Not that it necessarily warranted the depicted police response, but we have no idea what the cyclist did leading up to the moment he entered the frame. The police were definitely homing in on him as he approached. Did he do something earlier on the route, and they were looking for him? Or... We have no idea what happened other than what we see, I have a feeling there is more to this than met the eye of the camera. Power and a desire for retribution often make for regrettable decisions... Afghanistan? Iraq? Maybe it is the American penchant for violence that should be looked at with greater scrutiny.

 Nothing he could have done would necessitate that level of violence, he landed right on the curb on his back/arse.. that could have broken his back!
Also, the pigs hands were in his pockets right up until the moment he slammed into him, so he gave absolutely no indication that he wanted him to stop. If that happened in this country and was caught on tape the cop would be out on his arse.

 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. One other cyclist was ticketed Friday night for riding outside the bike lane, which is not actually illegal and often necessary, considering how popular bike lanes are for double parking.

UPDATE: MyFoxNY has it that the police officer in the video – 22-year-old Patrick Pogan – has been stripped of his badge and gun and the NYPD has "placed the officer on desk duty pending the outcome of a department investigation." The cyclist, Christopher Long, has not commented, but his lawyer said, "The video speaks for itself."

So there you go.

 in my opinion riding bycicles is good to our planet life and a non polluent way to make people to transport themselves anywhere.
crime? crime is to prevent people from riding vehicles that are not causing pollution and act like that cop acted.
the reality is that cop should be KILLED. he have no right to act like that being an authority. KILL THAT COP,KILL THAT FU**IN S*N *F A B**H !!!!!

 I think a naked 16 year thats high on cocaine with a broken beer bottle has better judgment than a cop.
  • + 2
 what a fucking prick! glad he got fired. i hope the cyclist sues the shit out of him so that dirty bastard looses everything and spends the rest of his life living on the streets. theres no excuse for shit like that.

 that was disgusting, piglike, and decidedly New Yorkish. I would be very surprised to see a Canadian policeman be that much of a cocksukker....at least in public. Wow.Power corrupts.

 You read my mind, through my veil of sarcasm. I was blown away by that incident, still am. Never would have expected that from RCMP. Power corrupts.
