      =v= The ACLU is asking the same question.

      =v= I saw the arrests. Basically the police blocked off a
      street (causing far more traffic jamming than Critical Mass
      ever did), then drove a bunch of scooters into the crowd
      and arrested a bunch of people indiscriminately.

      =v= I was arrested myself while walking my bicycle on the
      sidewalk during Sunday's Bike Bloc ride ("Critical Mass
      style," it sez on the flyer). Again, basically a roundup
      of people arrested indiscriminately.
