NYPD Attacking a Bicyclist

A rookie cop – the son of a highly respected New York City detective – has been stripped of his badge and gun after being caught on video viciously attacking a bicyclist who was part of a Times Square demonstration. Police officials say Patrick Pogan was dismissed last week. He was suspended last year after pleading not guilty to criminal charges of filing false paperwork.

His lawyer, Stuart London, says his 23-year-old client resigned and expects to be vindicated at trial. Pogan is accused of knocking Christopher Long off his bicycle without justification on June 25 during a group-organized bike ride. Pogan had arrested Long, saying the cyclist blocked traffic and steered his bike into an officer, but charges were dismissed after the video appeared on YouTube.

    To ASSnonymous……..Open your damn eyes ! You can VERY plainly see the officer step in and nail him as he attempts to steer around.

    The cyclist was trying to avoid the officer as the officer walked right into his path. That shove was totally uncalled for. Was the cyclist injured when he fell? If so, then he should sue that officer for medical expenses and damages to the bike. Notice that I said to sue for these specific things– I’m not against justifiable lawsuits for reasonable expenses, but I am against multi-million-dollar awards for a splinter or some nonsense like that. Covering the medical expenses, if any, would be reasonable.
