If you bike in the city you know it can be dangerous enough. There are not enough bike paths, and too many crazed motorists.
So the last thing you need is to be attacked ....for nothing....by a cop.
And then be charged with attempted assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
The good news?
The pig just got FIRED.
A police officer who was videotaped knocking a man off his bicycle and onto the ground during a cycling event in Manhattan last summer has been fired, the Police Department said.
You know I was hoping he'd have a close encounter with a three hundred pound cyclist. Or be charged with attempted murder.
But if the cyclist now sues the crazy cop....and the police department....for at least 300-thousand dollars ...this will be fine.
As long as they remember that the streets belong to EVERYONE...
