Via JMG: Gay Bicyclist Rushing To Hook-Up Gets Tackled By NYPD When He Barrels Into Obama’s Motorcade [VIDEO]

So this happened yesterday. Via TMZ:

President Obama got in the way of potential true love when the people protecting him opened a can of whoop ass on an unsuspecting NYC bicyclist. Daniel Provencio, 59, tells us he was hot to trot for a blind date — pumping “Call Me Maybe” through his headphones — when NYC cops tackled him for riding into a secured area just before the Prez breezed through. Turns out Daniel was on his way to hook up with a guy he met on an online dating website the night before … he wouldn’t say which.
The Daily News is questioning the NYPD’s tactics:
A cop grabbed Provencio and knocked him off the bike onto the ground, then fell to the ground himself. A helmeted cop roughly grabbed Provencio’s arm and twisted it behind his back. Cops rolled Provencio over until he was face down, stuck a knee in his back and cuffed him as a Secret Service agent walked over to observe. Obama’s motorcade rolled past during the arrest. Provencio did not appear to be resisting during the encounter. He was issued a summons for disorderly conduct, police said.
Provenico says his hook-up lost interest because he was hours late due to being interrogated by the cops. “Manhattan men are huge on punctuality.”

“Reconhecer nossas contradições internas é um passo fundamental dentro do processo evolutivo, porque é o início de uma mudança de consciência; é o início de uma mudança de identidade. Quando pode transcender suas contradições, o que significa deixar de ser governado pela mente condicionada e passar a ser guiado pelo coração, você sabe para onde deve ir e paga o preço que tem que pagar para seguir os comandos do coração.” 

“Reconocer nuestras contradicciones internas es un paso fundamental dentro del proceso evolutivo, porque es el inicio de un cambio deconsciencia; es el inicio de un cambio de identidad. Cuando puedes trascender tus contradicciones, lo que significa dejar de ser gobernado por la mente condicionada y pasar a ser guiado por el corazón, sabespara dónde debes ir y pagas el precio que hay que pagar para seguir los comandos del corazón.”

“To recognize our internal contradictions is a fundamental step within our evolutionary process, because it is the beginning of a change in our consciousness. It signals the beginning of a change in our identity. When we can transcend our contradictions, it means we stop being governed by our conditioned mind and we start being guided by our hearts. We know where we have to go and we pay the necessary price in order to follow the commands of our hearts.”

Make the universe your companion, bearing in mind the true nature of things—mountains and rivers, trees and grasses, and humanity—and enjoy the falling blossoms and the scattering leaves.
