Ray Kelley, the commissioner, just came on the radio and said he "couldn't fathom" why the officer, Pogan, did that.
That means the officer is officially being fed to the dogs... hung out to dry... you might even say thrown under a bus.
And since the officer is still on probation... well, it's time to dust off the resume.
You can read the lying officer's report at the smoking gun.
And my previous post here.
One comment asked a good question: what should police do?
Three simple words: Let them ride!
As much as it pains a few particular people in the NYPD, you can't control hundreds of people on bikes. Especially if they're willing to get arrested. Police have to work with Critical Mass, just like police do in many other cities. Provide an escort. Join the fun.
That means that once a month, yes, bikes go unrestricted through the streets. Yes, it might slow cars down. But so do double parkers and the 4th of July Parade.
