The battle between the police and cyclists in New York has been raging on for some time now. Back in 2011, Casey Neistat made a video that showed him riding in the bike lanes and running into all the things that should not have been in his way (yet bikers are often fined for riding on sidewalks or in traffic lanes when they try to avoid obstructions). Since then, others have protested the hypocrisy of the NYPD for giving them tickets while being a part of the problem. Now someone has created a Cops in Bike Lanes Tumblr that documents some of the occasions where police offers clearly gave no you-know-whats about the law or the people who bike in the city.
What did that old rap song say about the po-lice?
