The Long Arm (or shoulder) of the Law
I saw this and it really annoyed the fuck out of me and actually made me feel slightly sick...
Atleast all I have to deal with from london city police is condescension and a good patronizing, not a good drubbing.
This 'officer's' father was quoted as saying you 'have to do, what you got to do to make an arrest'
Fucking hell... He was riding a bike, that was his 'offence' he's not a rapist, a killer, a bank robber, that barge and subsequent fall could have easily killed him.
Much is being made of the fact the officer is a 'third generation cop' - frankly if new york has had 3 generations of this, I feel sorry for you.
On a more positive note, much props to bikecommuters where i found the news. Fantastic site, which i'm now checking daily.
