The 5th Precinct Officer and Tackled Cyclist Square off in the Mosh Pit [PHOTOS]

Last week, we published an article about a 5th Precinct cop stationed on Canal Street who tackled a red-light-running cyclist after exiting the Manhattan Bridge bike path. The story went totally bonkers with all points of view recorded in the comments (86 and counting). However, was the response (i.e. use of force) proportional to the crime? The cop had shouted at the biker to stop, and subsequently tackled him after non-compliance.
Regardless of where you stand on the matter, this is pretty funny. One of our readers took it upon himself to create a meme of sorts using our real-time image, placing the off-kilter cop and biker victim in an enormous mosh pit. Kudos, sir.
