The NYC cops decided to shut down the New York Critical Mass August ride.

I understand it on one level. The cops and the city have decided to show these people and any potential protesters that they will not take any form of dissent in the city.

But I also do not understand why the cops did this. Cops usually help out on the monthly rides by directing traffic. This was not an unexpected event. It is as regular as the daily post, it happens the last Friday of every month (in every major city).

The numbers were larger this time and the cops instead of being helpful decided to pen in the riders and then arrested 250 of them.

I think this heralds the state of things to come as the RNC invades NYC.

Time for some regime change.
