The Broadway Bomb in NYC is an annual event where skaters race down the eight miles from 116th Street. This year, the event was halted when police setup barricades and started arresting skaters. The race was considered illegal because it was a large gathering without a permit… Which seems absolutely insane to me. There seemed to be an absolute tonne of police around for this – I’m sure there had to be some more pressing issues happening somewhere in the city.
There’s a video of the arrests – check it out above. While I appreciate being able to see exactly what happened, the commentary is as annoying as it possibly could be.
