Critical Mass Police and Biker Violence

Photos from the confrontations that appeared during the Critical Mass ride in Portland Friday April 28th, 2006, beginning at 5:29PM PST, in West Portland.
These photos cover the violent escalation between police and several bikers during Critical Mass. A great deal has already been written by firsthand observers. I was too far away during the initial breakout to see the event's unfolding, but was onhand to capture the arrests of at least three bikers and the citation of another.
