Critical Mass
28 Apr 2001
After a most wonderfull critical mass ride...
After a most wonderfull critical mass ride, on which we had covered end to end of the city, I got arrested for having my bike run over after it was hit by a woman driving a Land Rover. Apparently, I malaciosly destroyed the undercarriage of her land rover by dropping my bike in the street and allowing her to run it over. After wreking my bike this lunatic proceeded to punch another biker(who's name I can't remember- sorry) in the face and throw a bike at Terry, who then was also arrested. Of course, we all know that the job of the police is to protect wealth and quell any hint of resistance to power, but I must say that it has never been so clear to me as it is tonight. I was led off and put in a cop car while the cop's took her(the driver of the land rover's) statement. My statment was taken on the way to the station. I am bieng charged with willfull malicios destruction of property- damage sustained to the undercarriage of her car in the process of running over my bike. So the moral of this story is; Never expect the cops to be objective or reasonable- even in the face of obvios circumstances.
