NYPD Detains Man for Lack of Common Sense During Presidential Visit

Cops descended on a Brooklyn man with a bike after observing him reach into his backpack as President Obama’s motorcade approached the WTC site. Moments before, he was reportedly moving around the crowd saying, “Secret Service, coming through.” At least one officer drew his gun on the 30-year-old musician who was later released and not charged, as mild stupidity is still legal.
