    The Portage park story links to the wrong website

    I rode past Washington/Dearborn on my commute and saw the cyclist in cuffs. Such a weird scene. If an on-duty cop saw a cyclist do what Liu did to a SUV, I sincerely doubt the cop would ever pull the cyclist over. Complete over-reaction by an off-duty cop in a pissy mood after getting off his shift.

    The reckless-driving cop needs to be arrested and taken to traffic court. We have a witness, after all…

    The biggest problem in the US is that bad abuse-of-power cops don’t get arrested.
