read about it everywhere including here

After seeing the video (warning it's violent) over the weekend, I was hoping that there was more to the story and the cop had a good reason for using excessive force in tackling cyclist Christopher Long, but it appears to come down to the old tried and true formula of a cop thinking he's above the law once again...

Story here.

Remember, there are still and video cameras all over the place and they can be used for both good and bad. It's hard to maintain your lie when you're caught on video clearly demonstrating otherwise.

[edit - on that note, read this article regarding how some cops choose to lie and how a few of them are caught with video tape that contradicts their stories.]
