Bully Cop Shoves Man Off BikeS

Last Friday's Critical Mass bike ride in Times Square featured random violence from the city's men in blue—a cop shoved a guy off his bike, hard, for no reason at all. Luckily, it was captured on on video. Riding your bike is legal asshole, so WTF is up with beating on cyclists? City Room reports that the unidentified officer was put on "modified assignment" while they investigate; the AP says they also took away his badge and gun for now. (He should be fired.) Meanwhile, Gothamist reports that the cyclist was arrested and held in jail while being charged with assault. (Click for the enraging video.)
