...because he had no identification.   LOL

A LIV police officer, no doubt.   I wonder if he called him/her a "fag"?

Normally, I'd get a kick out of Baldwin's little headache here but I fear the police are over reaching too much, too often.  "Carnival of stupidity" as Baldwin sees it.  It might be.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

5th Avenue is a one-way street and it's terrifically crowded.

They enforce it against courier's who ride their bikes on the job.  Can you imagine if somebody charged them with 'selectively' enforcing that particular law?

They had to double-cuff that bloated puke!  Too bad he didn't resist just enough to get his blubbery ass tazered.

What a slob.  What a disgrace.

He's a racist, sexist pig for arguing for his rights with those beautiful young officers. :tongue2:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Baldwin has nobody to blame but himself and I'm glad that they're enforcing the law on bikes at least somewhat.  Bicycles are one of the bigger dangers to pedestrians in NYC and the wrong-way riders are the worst.  When I lived in NYC I got hit twice by a bicycle.

Thanks for the clarity guys.  My attitude is a bit jaded towards the police because of experiences I had recently in South Dakota.  But that doesn't change my mind about Mr. Baldwin - he is a world class jerk.

The older parts of London have a hell of a lot of narrow, one way streets and cyclists going the wrong way are the bane of existence. So bad that we have our own version of the knockout game. When the cyclist gets close enough, you stick your arm out and clothesline them. It hurts a bit, but is rather satisfying, and if you get asked by the police all you say is "Officer, I was hailing a taxi. This bleep ran into my arm."
