Cop tackles cyclist. Film at eleven.

Here is the New York Times story that goes along with this video. The officer has been stripped of his badge and gun, and put behind a desk pending investigation. What is interesting is reading the officers version of the story after watching the video. For those of you who don't know what a Critical Mass is, read this. The short summary is that it is a monthly leaderless group ride through the streets of the city with the point of "taking back the streets" It is held on the last Friday of each month. Hundreds of cities around the world have a Critical Mass event. Salt Lake City even has their own version.
