=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.
