Cops Behaving Badly

The Smoking Gun has the criminal complaint filed against the cyclist who was attacked by New York Cop Patrick Pogan. If you thought the video of the attack was outrageous, check out the cop’s sworn statement describing the event:

the Defendant steered Defendant’s bicycle in the direction of Deponent [Pogan] and drove Defendant’s bicycle into Deponent’s body causing deponent to fall to the ground and causing Deponent to suffer lacerations on Deponent’s forearms.

That is the exact opposite of what really happened. And if it wasn’t for the video, that’s what a court would have found happened.
