    Political power on two wheels: Don’t mess with the bikers! http://www.salon.com/2013/09/07/political_power_on_two_wheels_dont_mess_with_the_bikers/

    I call shenanigans. No way that’s Beckham’s bike wheel. That low-end MTB wheel has been chained to that rack for ages. You can see the rusting axle nut, and the general grime on the wheel, lock, and the two very old, abandoned lock and chain on top.

    The GOP’s idea of street safety is making sure you’re in motorized, hulking metal box, while lots of police are on the payroll to stop ‘n frisk “criminals” (their euphemism for blacks and poor people). Expecting them to address street safety is like expecting Josef Mengele to address medical ethics.
