do you see what i see?

NYPD loves cyclists…NOT

Hard to believe but the NYPD did it again. Another shinning example of the police’s blatant disregard for cyclists in NYC.

You’ve probably already seen this by now but NYPD officer Louis Ramos, was charged with assault, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident after hitting a 61 year old man in the crosswalk in Brooklyn.


An 84th Precinct cop who rammed his police cruiser into a 61-year-old bicyclist as he blew through a red light in DUMBO — then failed to report what happened in the June 14 incident — was arrested on Tuesday.

With very little fanfare, Officer Louis Ramos surrendered at the Gold Street stationhouse, though he was released on his own recognizance after being charged with assault in the third degree, leaving the scene of an accident and reckless driving — all misdemeanors.

Investigators said Ramos struck the senior as he zipped past the corner of Jay and Sands streets.

The 19-year NYPD veteran and his partner, Officer Paris Anderson, were waiting at a red light at the corner when Ramos reportedly flipped on his lights and sirens, pulled into oncoming traffic and sped past several cars before hitting Yu Tong Chan as he pedaled by.

Also covered in by reporter Ben Fried.

This leads to my poll of the week:
This latest incident should make the NYPD

have a sensitivity training program towards cyclists

major lawsuit

a hard slap on the wrist

a vacation with Patrick Pogan

nothing, what did the NYPD do wrong?

learn how to lie better. free polls

What's the best way to pick up a bike messenger?  

"I don't know if I can tell you the best way, but I can tell you the
worst, which is when people come up to you and say "Oh, so you're a
bike messenger," and they get kind of cheesily star-struck and try to
ask you weird shit about it. The best way is just the same as with any
human being — be cool, be yourself, and don't try too hard."
