It looks like a clear case of follicle envy. Note the hirsute character of the fellow assaulting the bonnet of the police car relative to the clean cut policeman on the right.
For DONK's edification, this bicyclist seems to have concluded you stop (at least) at the chin.
When I was a kid, my run-ins with the Buffalo cops were uneventful. Pretty much, they'd drive through McCarthy Park at 9 PM, tell us the park was closing at 10, and remind us to throw our beer bottles in a trash can.
Now, next door, the Amherst cops are nothing to be sneezed at. Amherst has the lowest crime rate of any municipality in the US with a population over 100,000. Black police cars. Amherst cops are scary.
Racial profiling is still alive and well in Cheektowaga. You see, Cheektowaga is predominantly Polish, and historically Poles don't get along with African-Americans. Cheektowaga lies east of Buffalo, and is square in the path of the creeping East Side ghetto. There's a fair amount of black Buffalonians that shop and work in Cheektowaga, and one of the country's largest shopping malls is located there. The majority of Cheektowaga cops are town residents, and thus Polish, and thus not too fond of African-Americans.
BTW, El Guapo, a bit of Buffalo that any right-thinking Republican would love.
