LEO tries to kick cyclist at rally?

http://www.theagitator.com/2011/06/1...ops-vs-cameras

It is hard for me to see what happened. But the LEOs did not like that they were being filmed.

This video is a couple years old (more or less). It's from a critical mass a while back. The LAPD has actually done a pretty good job (in my opinion) at patching up relations with cyclists since then as a result of the fallout from the video.

All the more reason that *everyone* with a camera should stop and record scenes like this. They may be able to attack a few, but they can't stop everyone. Get those videos on the internet first, then notify local media, civil rights groups, etc... Also remember this handy application: http://qik.com/ - this way, if you're phone is stolen/destroyed by a jackboot, the video of it happening is still on the internet. That way, it's a little harder for them to destroy evidence of their crimes.
