(CBS News) – Multiple New York City police officers took part in a motorcycle ride in New York this week that led to a violent road-rage incident that saw a gang of motorcyclists attack a motorist with his wife and child in the car, CBS News’ John Miller reports.

 According to New York Police Department sources, whether either of the two new officers to step forward witnessed Sunday’s incidents remains unclear, Miller reported Saturday afternoon. All three officers who have said that they took part in the motorcycle ride were off-duty.

 Earlier, on “CBS This Morning: Saturday,” CBS News reported that an undercover detective was riding with the group of bikers. Sources say he did not take part in the altercation with Alexian Lien and his wife, but he did not step in to stop the attack either, reportedly because he did not want to blow his cover.

The detective, who has not been identified, was not investigating the motorcycle group. He has retained a lawyer and is not talking to police.

    The off duty police not responding yet witnessing the road rage incident is exactly what is wrong in our society. The undercover policeman would not have blown his cover he would have simply been a good samaritain. I blame the one too that filmed the incident from the beginning. Shame on all of them.

    On duty or off duty, didnt he or they have to take a Oath to up hold the Law when they took the job to be a policeman, makes you wonder dont it. Is it a one sided Law ?.
