I wish I had more but that is the question that needs asking of the police officers that did this to an old man……

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo say they are disturbed and sickened by a video that led to the suspension of two Buffalo police officers without pay. The graphic video, which can be seen here, shows officers shoving a 75-year-old man to the ground, leaving him motionless as a pool of blood forms under his head. “This incident is wholly unjustified and utterly disgraceful,” Cuomo tweeted Thursday night. He said he spoke to Brown, and they “agree that the officers involved should be immediately suspended pending a formal investigation.” Brown said the man, who was shoved around 8pm Thursday after approaching a group of officers during a George Floyd protest, was hospitalized in serious but stable condition, the New York Times reports

“Police officers must enforce—NOT ABUSE—the law,” Cuomo wrote. The video was posted Thursday night by WBFO and had been viewed more than 47 million times by Friday morning. Shortly before the video was posted, a police spokesman claimed the man “tripped and fell” during a “skirmish involving protesters,” the Buffalo News reports. Brown described the incident as “disheartening” after “days of peaceful protests and several meetings between myself, police leadership and members of the community.” Earlier Thursday, the mayor told a group of around 200 protesters that he had directed the city’s police department to formally ban the use of choke holds

Watch the video but be warned it is troubling for some…..

Personally the son of a bitch needs to be locked up for 20 damn years to think about his actions…..the cop (no he is not a cop he is a fucking thug) not the old man….in case there was any confusion

There is NO excuse for this and all that resort to unnecessary violence should be made to pay and pay dearly.  PERIOD!

  1. This was disgusting! And even worse, that except for the one officer who started to bend down to I assume offer assistance, they all just kept walking by while blood pooled around his head. And then they try to lie and resign from that particular unit when the two responsible were suspended? Seriously? This is a perfect example of why there needs to be an overhaul of policing.

      1. Defund in the aspect of military equipment they do not need. Plus a law that keeps a convicted abuser of rights from just moving from city to city to continue the hatred. chuq

      2. Did you see this?
        Two police officers in Buffalo, NY, were suspended after a video circulated showing them shoving an elderly man to the ground during a George Floyd protest on Thursday evening, and now an entire unit within the city’s police department has resigned. USA Today cites the Buffalo News in reporting all 57 active members of the Emergency Response Team, which shows up to handle riots and other situations requiring crowd control, quit their unit Friday, though they haven’t stepped down from the police department overall. The Buffalo mayor’s office tells CNN that a few members of the unit aren’t currently active and hadn’t left with the others. “Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” the president of the Buffalo Police Benevolent Association tells WGRZ.

        I say good riddance….now find some good cops….chuq

    I saw it with my own eyes!! Have listened to responses from the Police Chief and Gov. Cuomo … kinda don’t buy it!! … “The graphic video, which can be seen here, shows officers shoving a 75-year-old man to the ground, leaving him motionless as a pool of blood forms under his head.”

  3. Not only did he push the man over, he definitely stopped his colleague from bending down to render aid to him. Then they all walked past, and stopped a news crew from filming it. They should dismiss every single officer who walked past that man, and bring the one who pushed him up on charges. If they claim they were ordered to act in this way, then whoever ordered them to do it should be charged too.
    Remember the testimony of the SS officers at Nuremburg? “We were only following orders”.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Plus they need to be put on a list that is circulated to Police depts around the country…..they should be punished by never al;lowed to work in law enforcement again because they endangered the public trust. chuq

  4. Very scary to see the militaristic, violent police response to the peaceful protesters around the country. We are not in a good place right now. I really hope we can find our way out of this, before we turn into a completely fascist state.
