Bike Girl Watches YouTube

That New York Critical Mass rider who was knocked off his bike by a cop has had all charges against him dropped. Christopher Long was arrested after the incident in July for allegedly obstructing traffic and deliberately riding his bike into an officer.

But thanks to a bystander who was filming the whole thing, a video posted on YouTube shows NYPD Officer Patrick Rogan actually shoved Long off his bike as he tried to steer out of the way.

Officer Pogan has been assigned to desk duty while police continue to investigate.

No doubt the police will continue to "investigate" while keeping the cop on desk duties until they reckon the incident has been forgotten - then it will be business as usual. That cop should be sacked as an example to other yobbos that the uniform is not a licence to bully.
