Times Up: Video of Cops Confiscating Bikes on Earth Day Apr 29, 2010

Remember that whole mess about the NYPD confiscating bikes along President Obama’s motorcade route? Well Times Up just published a video of officers removing bikes. Make sure you pay attention to the :45 second mark. Since the cop didn’t answer, I’ll do that for you: The NYPD does not care about Bike People.

Don’t believe me? Fine. But the court system definitely doesn’t!

    I don’t even live in a city anymore but seeing this still pisses me off. I hope everyone got their bikes back without some kind of bullshit fee.

    Don’t some of those locks run around $100? Were people given new locks or given cash for their destroyed locks? I don’t really care about the ‘tax payers’ but it’s likely that the people who got their locks cut inadvertently paid the police to do so in a round about way.

    This video needs forwarded to OSHA. None of those police were wearing proper face or ear protection. It would be a shame for taxpayers to have to pay disability to a COP who injured themselves because of lack of protective gear.
