Critical Mass in the News

Washington, DC: Riding A Bike Is Not A Crime
It seems that the Chief Ramsey does not agree with the findings of the DC City Council. Early Monday evening, police, perhaps taking a cue from their Oakland brethren, continued their policy of what seems to be an ever increasing use of verbal harassment, physical force,and carefully calculated tactics exercised to disrupt and deny Critical Mass riders of their right to peacefully and lawfully ride on the streets of Washington, DC. The culmination of these unjust actions was the illegal search of riders' bags, the confiscation and damage to riders' bikes, and the unlawful arrest of one rider under the guise of assaulting a police officer.
