Memorial of Slain Bicyclist Interrupted by Police: 4 Arrested

Ghost Bike [permalink] At the end of January Critical Mass (CM), 4 bicyclists were detained and then taken to jail while standing on the sidewalk at the memorial of a slain bicyclist. The 4 were cited with blocking traffic and refusing to cease and desist. They were released from the 13th precinct about an hour and a half after being detained.

Approximately 450 bicyclists converged at Cortez and Western around 7:30 P.M. to honor the memory of Isai Medina, an avid bicyclist, Critical Masser, Chicago Freakbiker, and Rat Patroller among other things, killed by a chain of events that started with a driver speeding through an intersection.
