NYC Police Assault Bicyclist (video)

So even if this cyclist did commit some kind of crime, there was no order by the officer to stop or halt that the cyclist disobeyed to warrant this kind of brutality. I hope the NYPD handles this officers actions appropriately. This country doesn't need any more excuses to hate cops. For the record I personally don't hate cops...I just think we need to be actively removing from service the officers out there with obvious psychological problems who harass citizens because they are on some kind of mad power/authority trip. This video took place July 25th, 2008. Learn more about Critical Mass here and here.

UPDATE: The new officer was only on the job 3 weeks since graduating, is a third generation cop and has been "desked" while the situation is investigated by internal affairs. NYPost has the full story.
