He Should Have Just Thrown His Shoes

Gee, Officer Pogan,
You really are a boob
Your bodyslam went viral on the YouTube.
Gee, Officer Pogan,
What are you to do?
Gee, Officer Pogan,
Indicted, are you!
Well, the wheels of justice do work, from time-to-time.

Remember, from this past summer, the NYPD officer who body-slammed a bicyclist in Times Square, who filed a report that the cyclist was driving right at him, requiring his violent actions?

Officer Is Indicted in Toppling of Cyclist
A police officer who was caught knocking a man off his bicycle in Times Square over the summer in a video that was distributed widely on YouTube has been indicted by a grand jury, according to lawyers involved in the case.

The officer, Patrick Pogan, has been instructed to report to State Supreme Court in Manhattan for the unsealing of the indictment, his lawyer, Stuart London, said.

[Snip ...]

Mr. Long was taking part in a monthly ride, called Critical Mass, that often draws hundreds of riders. In a criminal complaint against Mr. Long, Officer Pogan said that the cyclist rode straight into him. But the video, which was shot by a tourist and posted on YouTube and on the blog, showed Officer Pogan lunging toward Mr. Long.
Here's the Perry Mason-Moment video

Critical Mass Bicyclist Assaulted by NYPD

Tsk, Tsk, Tsk ...

As Peter Kafka put it, "One of the real benefits of our document everything/share it with everyone world: The ability, on the rare occasion, to help right a wrong."

You know what ...

This song is for you, Office Pogan ...

round round round
