Be outraged

I just finished reading the story of an American cyclist who had a very nasty run-in with Minneapolis police last September. He was tasered and jailed after questioning the reason for being told to get off his bike when leaving the St. Paul airport. According to his story, he was falsely accused of taking a swing at the officer when all he did was question the legitimacy and safety of an order to walk the bike back to the terminal, going back up a narrow one-way road, and then start to ride away in a safe direction.

Assuming the story is correct, this is totally egregious behaviour from the police and I hope that Stephan can get a just outcome.
