Pinkberry patrol

These cops did not want doughnuts. Saturday about noon -- the time when the anti-war rally was set to begin at Olympic Ave. not far away -- my daughter and I were in Little Tokyo. We cut through the plaza at the Japanese America Cultural Center, as we usually do when she has a doctor's appointment, and were on our way to get lichee ice cream on the south/east side of 2nd Street when the bicycle cops started shooting past us -- one after another until they were about fifteen. They zipped over the sidewalk, stopped their bikes and dismounted with an air of purpose and urgency. All business, they parked their bikes in the plaza.
