Anti-cycle rage

I've always said that Helsinki drivers are incredibly aggressive against cyclists - totally unwilling to share the road with people on two wheels - but it's nothing in comparison to this:

At least, as the NY Times points out, with half the western world now having a video camera in their pocket in the form of their phone, people might think twice before doing mindless, dangerous things like deliberately pushing a cyclist off a bike. I hope the cop does get at least fired, because regardless of what the cyclist was doing (and most people seem to think he was doing nothing wrong) pushing a rider off a reasonably fast moving bike is incredibly dangerous just because of the significant chance of causing serious head injuries.
