    Default NYPD Probes cop in youtube body check video

    http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-10001149-93.html


    A New York City police officer was stripped of his gun and badge after a video posted on YouTube showed him body-checking a bicyclist during Friday's Critical Mass bicycle ride.

    The video (see below), which was shot by a tourist and posted on the video-sharing site Sunday, shows bicyclists whizzing past uniformed officers during the Times Square protest. One officer begins to stride across the street, picking up speed and violently tackling a bicyclist into a crowded sidewalk.

    The video sparked an immediate public outcry and led the department to place the officer, identified by several news agencies as Patrick Pogan, 22, on desk duty pending the outcome of an internal investigation.

    The bicyclist, Christopher Long, 29, was charged with blocking traffic, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and assault, prosecutors said.

    Critical Mass is a leaderless mass bicycle ride typically held on the last Friday of each month in cities around the world. The event, which originated in San Francisco in 1992, is alternately referred to as a celebration and a protest against automobile-choked streets.


    This is why you can't do stupid things anymore.

    The person with the video camera is facing to their right looking down the street, and then pans to the left stopping right on the police officers. The officer is watching other people ride by without incident and then this guy comes up and BAM! The officer walks over and takes him out.

    Why did the person running the camera move over to the cops just seconds before the assaulted bike rider came into view and stop on the police?

    My opinion is that the rider did something before he comes into the view of the camera to draw the ire of the officer. Just by "coincidence", there's somebody there with a camera to catch it on tape. If a person did a little digging, I would imagine they would find a connection between rider/Critical Mass and the camera operator.

    The cop just went crazy. there is no excuse for this. The bike rider is going to get big bucks from this you just watch. I bet the young cop needed more overtime and decited to get an arrest.

    The cop definitely appears to be targeting that guy for some reason. Maybe he did something earlier and they were standing there watching for him. Why else would they even be standing there in the middle of the street? I'm sure he's young and dumb and thought "well, we're supposed to stop this guy..." *bonk*

    The article states: "The bicyclist, Christopher Long, 29, was charged with blocking traffic, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and assault, prosecutors said." There has to be something earlier.

    Notice near the end of the clip, another bike rider picks up the guys bike and looks like they're starting to ride off with it next to them.

    agree with all you said... he did something off camera that drew the attention of both cops...

    I can't answer for NYC, but these critical mass "protesters" if you will, can take things to the extreme. I'm not trying to justify what the cop did at all, but the bike riders here in SF can be some real tools.

    Who knows why he(the policeman) did that, but that was a fucking full blown Ronny Lott hit. He didn't fuck around. That part was cool. Out.

    I might have to guess that you may not be as dumb as your youtube videos would suggest.

    NEW YORK — A New York City police officer has been indicted after being caught on video knocking a bicyclist to the ground.

    Lawyer Stuart London says Patrick Pogan must report to the Manhattan prosecutor's office on Tuesday morning.

    Cyclist Christopher Long was arrested in July during a Critical Mass ride through Times Square. The monthly bike rides are meant to draw attention to alternatives to motor vehicles.

    Police said Long was obstructing traffic and deliberately steered his bicycle into an officer. Charges were dismissed.

    A video of the body-check that knocked Long over was posted on YouTube and has been viewed more than 1.6 million times.

    Pogan has been stripped of his badge and gun and been assigned to desk duty.
