it’s such a bummer when you see these sorts of videos because of how crappy the people are, but it’s also kind of great because with exposure people can be brought to justice. first up is ‘hollywood cops attack bike riders’, which features a nice police officer just kicking some cyclist (presumably in some sort of critical mass situation) and then when the person filming complains they pin him to the floor. a hugely unnecessary use of force for using a swear word – another ego trip no doubt. I wish I could say that police in London are better than this but from my brief experience in a critical mass ride I encountered similar abuse.
whats up with that
this next one is more shocking, purely because of the desperation and transparency of the thief’s thought process. It’s depressing to see somebody like that, though apparently homie got arrested in the end (more info here)
bum bum bum
