Elderly Man With Cane Violently Shoved to the Ground by Utah Police for Walking Too Slow

One would imagine that with nearly the entire country awash in raging unrest over allegations of police brutality, impunity, and abuse, police officers would be a little more careful and deliberate in their interactions with citizens.

One would imagine.

However, in seemingly utter disregard for the popular mood – as well as nearby news cameras – the Salt Lake City Police Department has sparked the anger of residents after an officer clad in riot gear was captured on film shoving an elderly man walking with the assistance of a cane to the ground after the senior failed to comply with barked order to leave.

As events in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, began to take a violent turn Saturday amid police attempts to suppress raucous protests, ABC4 cameras were on the scene reporting live as officers in heavy tactical gear began to arrive.

It was at that point when one of the armor-clad officers began to shove the grey-haired man with his shield. The man, who appeared to be an onlooker uninvolved in demonstrations, clearly had trouble walking but the officer persisted in shoving him down to the concrete.

During the live broadcast, reporter Nicole Neuman said:

“Sadly, a man was just knocked off his feet.”

Likely aware that cameras were rolling and the incident would not be a good look for local police, another cop walked up to the man and pulled him back to his feet.

Video of the incident has since been viewed millions of times, renewing accusations of police brutality by Salt Lake City police in particular and cops across the United States, in general.

Reactions from social media were swift, with one Twitter user commenting:

“Reason why there should be better psychological testing for officers.  Obviously the shoving officer is stressed out.  He has no place in a situation like this.  If he can’t control his emotions, he should find a job he can handle.  Unacceptable behavior.”

Another user commented on the irony of the ABC4 chyron reading “PROTESTS TURN VIOLENT” despite the obvious fact that the police themselves, rather than protesters, were the perpetrators of the violence captured in the clip. The user asked, “Are these your ‘courageous officers’?”

On Sunday evening, Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown issued a video statement addressing the disturbing footage. Describing the incident as “inappropriate,” Brown said that the unnamed officer would be investigated by internal affairs as well as by the Civilian Review Board.

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

... and immediately knocked a grey haired man using a cane, to the ground for no apparent reason. WHY??

WHY?? Because he was ordered to move and he didn't.

I am getting brain-freeze from the thought of having to try to explain something this simple and basic,so I will just say this:

I am an old man and move slowly because of age and old injuries. Push me to the ground and see how well you like what happens to you.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.
