E-Media received these photos from the July 25 ride from Paul Spinrad on September 5, 1997

Hit from behind with a club

Same cyclist on knees in a club choke hold

Note the position of the cyclist's backpack (indicates cyclist is on his knees) and the curve of the policeman's visable hand. It appears as if he grasping a cylindrical object of small diameter. The cyclist's hand is visible at right on the handle bars.

The reactions of the onlookers.

Note: The original photos are much clearer.

As always, we are seeking photos of police attacks on cyclists and pedestrians during the July 25th ride. Better late than never.
