Bicyclist assaults Police Officer & Gets Off Scot-Free


It appears the DA in New York has determined it is not a crime to attack a police officer. This blind civil servant quickly took 5 weeks to all drop charges against Christopher Long even after video evidence surfaced supporting the officer's SWORN STATEMENT that Long was attempting to run into him.



In this widely seen video on YouTube, it is clear the Long was provoking and threatening the safety of Officer Patrick Pogan, who responded by unsuccessfully attempting to avoid a collision with Long. I hope Mr. Long learns how to better handle his steed. The safety of all police officers who stand in motorways is my number one concern! Officer Pogan has a strong civil case, and I hope he presses charges against this holligan!

Are you fucking high or just stupid.... This cyclist was not provoking anything the officer clearly stepped to and knocked this cyclist to the ground.... further more he lied in his arrest record stating that he was knocked to the ground, and had scratches on his arms from it. The "officer" in this video is the criminal, both because he was clearly in the wrong by taking out the cyclist this way and lying under oath on the arrest record... he needs to lose his badge....

Sarcasm is stating the opposite of an intended meaning especially in order to sneeringly, slyly, jest or mock a person, situation or thing. It is strongly associated with irony, with some definitions classifying it as a type of verbal irony intended to insult or wound. Sarcasm can also be used in a humorous or jesting way depending on the intent of the person speaking.

If in fact that was sarcasm... I apologize... This whole issue really pisses me off, being a bicycle commuter that gets hit almost every day. The fact that people are so ignorant about bicycle traffic gets under my skin... Going back and looking at the rest o this site perhaps I posted to hastily... sorry...

For the record, yes, the post was completely sarcastic.
