It's been building up over some time. Bicyclists vs. the LAPD. Each situation gaining media attention is different, but one thing has been a constant--riders feel prejudiced by the police in general. Then comes today when a large group of 20 or so cyclists show up to the regularly little-attended Police Commission meeting talking about last Friday's incident between a hummer and a group of cyclists and the general treatment they receive when dealing with police. Now this: "the Inspector General's office will investigate last week's attack and police policies and write official reports and make recommendations to the LAPD," reported Damien Newton at StreetsblogLA.
