Police should prevent crime, instead of picking on cyclists

Responding to yesterday’s High Court victory by bicycle protestors over the police, Jenny Jones, member of the Metropolitan Police Authority and Green Party member of the London Assembly, said:

“This decision is a victory for common sense. Critical Mass is a lively, but peaceful get-together of cyclists which has been going on for over a decade without any major incidents. Arresting these cyclists would have been like arresting a group of passengers for gathering at Westminster tube station during the rush hour. The police should stick to catching criminals instead of picking on cyclists. Tomorrow, shall be asking the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police not to appeal the decision.”

A waste of time and A waste of money, the police should be focusing on some real crimes, rather then picking on cyclists, events such as the critical mass have a positive effect on the enviroment and society, they are safe and encourage people to get on there bicycles... the police twisted the law for no real gain, just their own perverted enjoyment, now i just hope this will all be put to rest.

Standing up for what matters
