Title: Buffalo Police Seriously Injure 75-Year-Old Man During Protest

Buffalo-police

(Twitter)

A 75-year-old man was hospitalized Thursday evening after two Buffalo police officers knocked him down during a protest over the police killing of George Floyd. Those two officers have been suspended and an internal investigation is underway.

Video shows the man approaching a line of Buffalo Police officers enforcing the city's 8 p.m. curfew. He exchanges words with two of the officers, who yell at him to get back, and then one officer shoves him. The man falls backward and his head slams onto the pavement. Numerous officers walk by him as blood pools around his head.

The Buffalo Police Department initially issued a press release saying that "one protester was injured when he tripped and fell."

Later Thursday night, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown tweeted that he was "deeply disturbed by the video, as was Buffalo Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood."

"After days of peaceful protests and several meetings between myself, Police leadership and members of the community, tonight's event is disheartening," Brown added. "I hope to continue to build on the progress we have achieved as we work together to address racial injustice and inequity in the City of Buffalo. My thoughts are with the victim tonight."

Brown wrote that the man is "in stable but serious condition" at a local hospital.

Lockwood suspended the two main officers involved without pay and has ordered an investigation into the incident.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wrote in a tweet that the incident was "wholly unjustified and utterly disgraceful."

The man is not the first elderly victim of police violence during the protests over the killing of George Floyd. Widely shared video showed police in Salt Lake City shoving an elderly man with a cane to the ground:

Setting aside the possibility of Covid-19 infection, what's a 75-year-old man doing out there in the middle of a riot? That's as stupid as the parents who bring their little kids.

Second, why is he interfering with the police?

What an idiot.

Gee maybe he lives around there - he had NOTHING to do with any rioting.

Second, why is he interfering with the police?

Watch the video bootlicker - the elderly man was on the sidewalk attempting to return one of the officer’s helmets he had found. (You can see him holding the helmet in the video at the start.) The officers then walked up to him and shoved him to the ground.

The impact of the elderly man’s head was so hard that he immediately began bleeding from the ears and was knocked unconscious.

They claimed he "tripped". Lying as they always do.

You don't give a rat's ass who the police assault - black, white, elderly - as long as the cops keep this shit up we can count on whitey to cheer for the thugs. The badged thugs that is.

This should make you happy:

Entire Buffalo Police Dept ERT Resigns in Tantrum Over Suspension of 2 Cops Who Attacked Elderly Man

...a case out of Buffalo, New York is getting a lot of attention due to the unnecessary and disturbing nature of how it unfolded. An elderly man was shoved down and two cops were suspended as a result. Now, the entire Buffalo Police Department Emergency Response Team has resigned in support of those two cops.

In total, 57 officers threw a collective temper tantrum, for their right to attack innocent elderly men with impunity.

WIVB reporter, Dave Greber announced the move just moments ago.

: I’m told the entire @BPDAlerts Emergency Response Team has resigned from the team, a total of 57 officers, as a show of support for the officers who are suspended without pay after shoving Martin Gugino, 75. They are still employed, but no longer on ERT. @news4buffalo

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.

He was not rioting or looting. He was returning one of their helmets he had apparently found, or did you miss that?

Nice "thank you" from the cops, huh?

I bet this 75-year-old guy was 100% pro-cop before he was aggressively pushed to the ground and suffered a severe head injury. The ONE cop who bent down to see if the elderly guy was OK was immediately grabbed by another cop and pulled away as blood dripped from the man's ear.

You and whitey bleating in harmony:

Looking at it again, he doesn't appear to be showing the helmet to anyone...more interested in filming I'd say.

Perhaps he was not able to handle a few things at the same time, and was not a match for a strong young man. Certainly he did not plan to end up in a hospital.

When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

The police are there only because rioters are burning down businesses and assaulting people. Anyone who would fear the police controlling the rioters is an idiot.

If you want to see a police state visit any South American country where, every day, police and soldiers are on every corner with machine guns. THAT'S a police state.

Martin Gugino, Buffalo man pushed by police, is long-time peace activist

Martin Gugino — the 75-year-old man who was shoved to the ground by Buffalo police in a video seen by millions — is a long-time peace activist and “gentle person,” according to friends.

The resident of Amherst in Erie County is a member of the People United for Sustainable Housing Buffalo and anti-nuclear group Kings BayPlowshares, the Buffalo News reported.

“He’s a gentle person who really believes that he must stand up for what he thinks is right,” said Gugino’s pal Terrence Bisson. “That’s why he went to the demonstration. He would never resist physically any kind of orders. He’s a bit frail, not because of his age. He has some health problems.”

Yeah...a real "threat" to the cops. He deserved being assaulted just for being a "peacenik".

I don't agree with his 2nd Amendment rant, whitey might.

Pure BS! This "elderly man" is a well known activist who was there to make trouble.

I agree that he is an activist and protester. From his record, I don't see anything in his past that would indicate that he was looking to stir up any mayhem. There's a difference between protesting and rioting. Protesting is protected speech - the 1st Amendment protects that right.

When protests turn destructive and violent, it is no longer protesting - it's rioting.

Whether you agree with his political views or not, he has the right to express those views peacefully

Like it or not, the cops made several more enemies with their overzealous, heavy handed reaction.
