Let's hope the same tactics find their way across the pacific...

=============================================

Buffalo Cops Wage War on Pedal Pushers
Iatrogenic Law Enforcement on the Niagara Frontier
By BRUCE JACKSON


More than two dozen Buffalo police officers attacked a peaceful group
of bicyclists on 6:30 p.m. on Friday evening, May 30. They kicked some
and beat several with clubs and Mag-Lites. They arrested nine of them
on the kind of trumped-up felony charges cops always levy when they've
started a mess they shouldn't have or beaten up folks they had no
right to have been bothering in the first place.

It's unlikely that the Buffalo police department will discipline the
cops who rioted or that they'll initiate a training program to help
the more excitable members of the patrol force differentiate between
perps committing felonies and ordinary folk riding bicycles. The best
thing that could happen at this point would be for Erie County
district attorney Frank Clark to find a tactful way to toss all these
bogus charges into his prosecutorial garbage can as soon as he
possibly can.


To borrow a quote from their fellow officers: "To protect and
Serve",.......'Protect' from their civil rights and to 'Serve' with some
whacks from a metal torch.

Good news is, I'm an aus.cars regular and I hate Jarkko too.


I know Jarkko from way back. He was a toss pot back then too. The exact type
of person who talks big on a keyboard, but cowers in fear in face to face
meetings - even with girls. And that's the truth because I've seen it.

This is terrible, it's no way to treat a Mag-Lite (tm).
