    Remember the YouTube Video of the cyclist & the cop?

    Back this summer there was a video of a cop completely decking a cyclist in NY City.

    Here's the latest update:

    Justice does prevail!

    Wow! I hadn't seen that. I watched the video first. After seeing it I thought that the cyclist must have done something and the cop just overreacted. But, reading the article, the cop claims that the cyclist ran straight into him! Apparently he may be charged with misdemeanor assault! What?! People are charged with misdemeanor assault for spitting on someone. They need to get him on a felony.

    That boils my blood. Glad the cop isn't a cop anymore.

    They have him on a felony for writing false charges. It's a good thing this video emerged so justice could prevail.

    No youtube no justice.

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

    Right, the prosecution is pushing for a felony charge of 'filing false records' and the article states that there *may* be a charge of *misdemeanor* assault. I think he deserves the false records and a felony assault.

    My final ruling:

    100 hours community service picking up sh!t left by cops on horseback.
