Broadway Bomb 2013

(YouTube link)

The annual Broadway Bomb is an unsanctioned 8-mile race through Manhattan from West 116th Street down to the Financial District on skateboards. The New York Police Department was out in full force to stop the participants on October 12th, but as you can see from this video of one intersection, they weren't very successful. Racing skateboarders generally move faster than cops with a net. Still, out of somewhat over 100 skaters, at least 35 were issued summons, and several were handcuffed.

The question is: which is more dangerous overall, 100 skaters in the streets of the city, or police officers movings nets around intersections? -via Viral Viral Videos

I never used to feel this way, but we have reached the point in America that almost EVERY police action for "public safety" is more dangerous than the actions it's intended to deter. 9/11 terrorized us into paranoid stupidity, and the Terrorists won, big time.
