Police Aggression at World Can't Wait Protest

I was at the protest today in Downtown Portland. A group of women, one pushing a baby stroller, were walking down Jefferson. Right before they made it to 12th, four police officers on motorcycles headed down Jefferson. The first three rode the motorcycles in
a straight line and had no problems. However, the fourth officer swerved to the side coming with in less than a foot of the women. Including the women with the baby stroller. I managed to take a picture of this officer but I am not sure if it turned out. He was going so fast that it might be blurry. I'm hoping to have the pictures developed by Monday and if the picture came out I will post it.
