Apparently justice took a U-turn in New York City. A video anonymously posted on YouTube catches a New York City police officer body-checking a biker into the curb as last Friday's Critical Mass rally passed through Times Square. According to Newsday, the guy on the bike, Christopher Long, was accused of pedaling into the cop. He was arrested and charged with attempted assault, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. That's not the story the video tells -- and after it surfaced, says Newsday, rookie officer Patrick Pogan was put on modified duty.
