The things that happen while I'm still on the mend:

My main issue here is that the cops didn't hit the lights 'n siren and make things "official." Instead, they make themselves look like quasi-homicidal jerks. Which is just as bad as doing nothing, which sadly is SOP for NYPD.

holy fuck.

I don't care if for example that's a stolen* bike as you can't go putting somebody at that level of risk just to arrest a bike thief.


* not saying it is stolen just a hypothetical that could have led to such [stupid] police behaviour

Even if the lights and siren would have been on, this is using a police cruiser as a potentially deadly weapon.

It is hard to envision any scenario in which that would be tolerable. One wonders if the NYPD officer(s) involved will be held accountable. That's not all that likely in New York City.

This is what happens when the Mayor was formerly involved in law enforcement. Guiliani had some interesting Police enforcement issues when he was Mayor as is happening now under Eric Adams.
