that protesting is evil and illegal. This is no more evident

protesting cyclist and then attempted to prosecute the man on
Officer Patrick Pogan testified in court that cyclist Christopher
Long of the activist group Critical Mass deliberately steered
into him in an attempt to injure the new recruit during a protest
in Times Square in July 2008.
The officer said that he was protecting himself after having
ordered Long to stop owing to the fact that he had taken his
hands off the handlebars of the bike.
Fortunately for Long, a bystander captured the incident on
video and uploaded it to youtube, where it has received over
two million views.

Immediately following the discovery of the video, Pogan was
on desk duty. Now the officer has been forced
to resign in disgrace and has been convicted of
lying, falsifying business records and submitting a false report
on the incident.
Pogan is looking at up to four years in prison, however he
is more likely to escape with a probation sentence instead.
Mr Long, who was not seriously injured in the incident, was
acquitted of assault charges and awarded a $65,000 payout from
the NYPD following a lawsuit.
Critical Mass protests involve cyclists riding through the

This case is not an isolated incident. Indeed, pretty much
exactly the same thing happened just weeks ago in LA when an
officer was caught on camera kicking a cyclist to the ground
during a protest against oil giant BP.
“Whoa, what the f*** was that for?” the unidentified
cameraman can be heard saying. Moments later, the video shows
two officers converge on the cameraman and take him down to
“Get up,” one officer can be heard saying, as another
says “Stay down.”

These incidents highlight how an increasing percentage of police
are acclimatized to treat free thinking Americans as filthy
scum that need to be taken down.
They also highlight how in many cases the only line of defence
the victims have is video cameras. The cops know this, that
is why they turn on the cameraman at the LA protest, and why
war has effectively been declared by the so called authorities
on filming and photography in our cities.
