"It was fantastic," said Bismarck Decastillo, 39, a thrift store worker from the south Bronx. "The people protested, with freedom. When people can get together, we can do something."

Congratulations to the protestors who thought blocking traffic in NYC by organzing a large number of bikes to stand in the middle of midtown Manhatten streets would be a great way to protest the RNC. Wow - you held up traffic and really accomplished "something!"

BTW, when you initiate force (which creating traffic snarls is), you cross the line - you are not "peaceful protesters" any more - you are mindless self-loathing idiots. If you want to accomplish "something," engage others in a discussion of ideas in a non-coercive fashion.
