YouTube Cyclist Video Evidence Remember Patrick Pogan? He’s the disgraceful ex-cop who resigned from the NYPD after a video surfaced of him body checking cyclist Christopher Long during a Critical Mass ride that directly contradicted the police report he falsified. Anyway, his trial begins today and according to New York’s trashiest tabloid, his defense lawyer is somehow going to convince jurors that his client should be exonerated because Long smoked some weed 7 years earlier while in the Army. Please let that be their strategy.
