    Link: Cop Loses Badge Over Video That Shows Body-Check - The cop is sitting at a desk now. Apparently, this was an anti-car demonstration in NYC`s Times Square.

    I support police as much as reasonably possible, but this was an unecessary show of force. It looks as though he really wanted to feel like he was being threatened so he could lash out. Stupid at best

    man there has to be a reason why he did it, look at the other cop hes also walking towards the biker. I don`t buy that it was random I`m sure the guy on the bike did something. There has been too much cop bashing lately. It`s making me sick.

    According to the news, the cop said that the guy assaulted him or something of that sort, annnd this video proved otherwise.

    it was a critical mass ride, they have a tendency to piss off the cops. Especially when a bunch of people block side roads to keep the pack moving. Ride in one if you ever get the chance, it`s a real "experience".

    In this case, it looks like the cop was way out of line. I think I can shed some light on why he might have acted out, even if it`s not the right action.
    I got caught by the critical mass bike ride here in Vancouver last Friday. Some people take it as an opportunity to break the law because they`re protected by the sheer numbers of bicycles. I was nearly run down as a pedestrian by morons continuing through the red light even though I had the right of way. I suspect this cop had seen enough of the bad side of things and took things too far.

    that was completley unnecessary. even if it was a critical mass bike ride he could have done something other than deciding to take his anger out on one biker by completely body checking him. well at least he`s fired and there`s one less dick of cop out there to deal with.

    Critical Mass are a bunch of idiots. They illegally stop traffic on major traffic roads because they think they are entitled to breaking the law over "DRIVERS".

    Here they are harassing a poor elderly couple and lying to make themselves look like victims.

    The cyclist needs to file criminal charges and a lawsuit against the officer and the department. There was no reason for that attack and the video is all the evidence the cyclist will need. The officer picked out someone and attacked for no reason.

    I don`t see the logic in some of your comments. I don`t think most of you really understood what was going on in this video, nor do you know Critical Mass` reputation for mobbing cars as the bicyclists pass.

    Just a few days ago, there was a news report about CM members slashing tires and breaking windows of a driver trying to back up and turn around when bicyclists were blocking her car. I wouldn`t be surprised if the police were there because Critical Mass was violating every street law that exists at the time.

    I wouldn`t be suprised if this cyclist flipped "the bird" to this cop. Trust me when I say this, Flipping off a cop will get you unwanted attention.

    Alas, We don`t get to see this cyclists right hand, or what he was doing with it... or for that matter what this CM member may have done up the street to warrant such a response.

    Cops don`t get aggressive without a reason, Sadly those reasons are rarely revealed on video.

    "I wouldn`t be suprised if this cyclist flipped "the bird" to this cop. Trust me when I say this, Flipping off a cop will get you unwanted attention."

    ^ There is nothing in the video that excuses this. Even if it WAS because he flipped them off, a finger gesture is not balanced out with being body checked and shoved off your bike into the concrete. Stop making unnecessary excuses for BAD cops. Yes there are good ones, but like people in general there are going to be some really bad ones too and this is pretty clear.

    I`m sick of all the cop bashing. My cousin is a New York cop, my grandfather was a cop, and my great-grandfather was a cop. There are bad cops out there, but there are a lot of good cops out there. Just like there are good and bad civilians. The more I look around the more I see way more bad civilians than bad cops.

    ----
    that`s because only the videos that make it seem that way find their way to the internet. as of 2004, there were 836,787 police officers in the US (link). how many videos have you seen that show them doing something "questionable"? it`s probably less than .01% of that.

    while, truthfully, even 1 bad move is 1 move too many, but it`s not even feasible for there to never be one. they are human, after all, and will make mistakes.

    Oh, and yes the cop is way outta line, but let`s get back to talking about Critical Mass.

    These idiots had a bike session in downtown Toronto on an elevated Expressway during the middle of the day recently and even brought their kids with them - right in the middle of rush-hour traffic.

    looks to me like he was singling the cyclist out for a reason. Look at the cop, he see`s his "victim" from quite a distance away. The body check is completely reasonable if the cop suspects that the perpertrator (of whichever crime he`s seen him commit, we don`t know due to camera angle)will escape and evade capture due to his bicycle. Furthermore don`t these morons realise that the road is for road vehicles and no amount of wishing will make all cars and trucks disappear and leave a utopia of bearded cyclists! Take away the trucks and we`re three days from anarchy! Critical mass is lucky that they don`t protest near me in the uk because I wouldn`t slow down if one swerved in front of me I`d hit him then sue him for the damage to my vehicle and my mental anguish!! Suck that hippy!

    Why do I think the cop was out of order? Because when even a known suspect is stopped by the police (they are in cars) do they just ram them then ask about it later? NO. was that cyclist told to stop further up the street? We just don`t know. But that level of force was too much, as CM being Morons, depends on where you go, I`m guessing if place half this websites users on a BIG BROTHER type CCTV world half of you would look like morons. Regarding the CM video from CNN(?) I did``t once see a report/story on the news report from anyone but 3rd parties, not even the driver.
    Remember when people are bashing the police they are bashing the bad ones, same for CM, THE BAD, the good never get noticed. When was the last time you found a nobel prize winner video or news report on IAB? PS the cops could of gotten the cyclist off in a much better manner, EG grab not push. ***Thank you and good night** :P

    Let`s start by saying all the cyclists are already breaking traffic laws. I think the police were being quite civil and not bothering the majority of people riding by. They could have arrested every one of the bikers if they had the will and manpower. Who cares about stopping traffic in one of the busiest cities in the US to ride bikes on roads paid for by fuel tax? It is not apparent from the clip what happened before the cop pushed the biker over. If the biker clipped a pedestrian or damaged a car, or whatever, the cop was most likely moving towards him in an effort to stop him to either warn him or arrest him. The fact that the biker swerved around the cop, and even leaned into the cop (assault?), could also be construed as resisting arrest. When a person driving a car breaks the law, what do the cops do? They run his ass down and do whatever they can to take the driver off the road before they injure or kill someone. This is a much smaller scale, but the same applies.

    Since people have apparently decided that the only way to argue is to outright lie, it seems I`ll have to take a few of you to task.

    1. Critical Mass is not an anti-car protest, it`s to bring attention to the rights of bicyclists.

    2. Roads are <i>not</i> only for motor vehicles. The law gives bikes all the same rights to the road as cars. Also, in most places it is illegal for bicycles to be ridden on sidewalks.

    3. The cyclists that swarmed the car didn`t do it because the guy was just "trying to back up and turn around when bicyclists were blocking her car" They did it because he hit two people with his car!

    4. And hey, instead of yelling at the folks who are just trying to point out that they have rights too, why not get mad at the two idiots standing in the middle of a busy road? Or the NY cops who routinely park their cars in the bike lanes, thus forcing bikers to go in the road. or maybe the ones who refuse to actually do anything about that the other cars that park in bike lanes? You know, all the people who made protests like this necessary?

    It sickens me how on every single one of these videos there are people who are 100% behind the cop.
    But on the upside, this is the first video i ever saw where the cop didnt get in trouble.
    Any one remember the post a while back with a collection of videos showing cops using excessive force, along with a collection of cops getting owned?
    I am still completley sickened by the video of the cop that tasered the girl at the fast food restaurant because he said she stole money when even the manager came out and proved that she didn`t

    and lets not forget our good friend oficer Riveri with not 1, but 2 videos showing his pigishness.
    the cop that dumped the paralyzed man out of his wheel chair,
    the cop that threw the pregnat woman onto the ground.
    The cops that went after the camera guy for no reason.
    the guards that killed the kid in his jail cell,
    The cop that accused a woman of being drunk and beat the poo out f her, and she wasnt even drunk or threatening him, just type in cop in IAB and you`ll see tons more examples.
    and google police brutality for even more.
    Stop supporting these drating pigs!

    Cops are dicks. Every frickin` day I hear about something like this. Just ONCE I want to see the public grow some balls and beat the snot out of one of these a**hole pigs when they decide to be a big man and attack a citizen.

    oh and lets not forget the classic example from a while back where the cops beat a black guy in LA to death, remember it started those riots?
    If i had my own website it would have a website dedicated to stopping police brutality cus it really really pisses me off.

    oh sorry, i meant to say mased the girl at the drive through, not tasered.
    But still, the fact the cop was cleared of wrong doing pissed me off more than anything

    Don`t agree with the stupid bike thing, but cops are still dicks, then again thats thier job. Arresting people for things that shouldnt even be against the law.

    "I don`t think most of you really understood what was going on in this video, nor do you know Critical Mass` reputation for mobbing cars as the bicyclists pass."

    That doesn`t justify the cop tackling the guy. Because some members of CM do stuff like that, the cop can just randomly pick someone and plow him down? I don`t think so. If that`s the case, then I can go beat the hell out of a random cop because he might be one who attacks people for no good reason.

    "Alas, We don`t get to see this cyclists right hand, or what he was doing with it... or for that matter what this CM member may have done up the street to warrant such a response."

    The cop started walking over before the cyclist was in the picture. I doubt he was doing anything that far away that the cop could see and react to by casually walking over. If the cyclist did something that far away, he couldn`t have seen it. If he did something just out of the frame, the cop wouldn`t have had time to cas

    The cop singled this guy out and decided to give his thoughts on the whole event by knocking the guy down. If the cyclist had done something that dangerous the cop would`ve gotten the attention of another officer to help stop the guy. He just walked over and plowed him down.

    pherruginus, I tip my hat to thee. And, to all the ássholes saying that all bikers break the law you`re being ridiculous (btw what do you think of all the cars that break the law, rolling stops, speeding, etc etc. I bike every day and see far more infractions by cars than other cyclists), as are the people saying all cops are bad because some are. This kind of diminished thinking is what drives people to extremes and all we end up with is a bunch stupid prejudices and a society that crumbles... or something.

    Well, even if the guy did something to piss the cop off or did something to justify the cop pulling him over the cop doesn`t appear to tell him to stop, he just casually walks over and bodychecks the guy.

    If I assaulted someone on my job I would go to jail. This cop gets a paid vacation, then he gets an easier job. He needs to be arrested.

    In front of all them people? In that case, unless he was just insanely unstable, I think the cop must have had a rather good reason for doing it.

    But I know that`s not the popular way to think. Then again I`m not a drating teenager and refuse to lower my mental capacities enough to think like one.

    Cop was probably being a dick, but I can`t feel too sympathetic for these Critical Mass people.

    Props to Pherruginus for being rational and pointing out how rough cyclists have. I actually haven`t heard of CM until today and I fully support it. Some of unsavory things that people do? No. But lets face it, drivers are a complete and utter menace to cyclists because they don`t care to notice them, nor do they seem to realize that cyclists have as much right to be on the road as them.
    The fact of the matter is, if there is a cyclist in front of you on the road and you don`t have enough room to pass? Tough poo. Most of us will stay on the shoulder out of courtesy but we don`t actually have to. Personally I am tired of getting hit or having and many near misses by drivers. I think that CM needs to be more organized for it to really effective as a protest tool but a step in the right direction.
    Finally to several of you who complained about cyclists breaking the law and having no right on the road, please put your car keys away, your ignorance is proof positive to the hazard you
