Elderly man pushed to ground by Buffalo police, bleeds from head

Elderly man pushed to ground by Buffalo police, bleeds from head

A Buffalo police officer was seen on video shouting a 75-year-old man to move back and then pushing him, causing him to stumble backward and bang his head into the pavement, and start bleeding from the back of skull. The man was rushed to nearby hospital and is in serious but stable condition, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said. Two officers involved in the incident have been suspended without pay.

Watch that video. This ain't gonna end well. Pretty sure there are a lot of cops and politIans all thinking "Thank god that guy wasn't black."

Someone needs to start a law suit agains all the media outlets that are fanning the flames here. The narrative being pushed is built on half truths and out and out lies.

Cops barely pushed him, he was told to move. It's on him to confont cops during a riot. People can seriously do what they want, but this is not a safe place to be. Will probably get corvid 19 at 75 years old not good choices made.

They do tell you to move and shove you, he just didn't have any balance. Play stupid games win dumb prizes. Don't go walking up to cops that are telling you to move, they might shove you. It's on you not to fall back and hit your head. They are not baby sitters. He just barely pushed with an open hand.

Best part was when the one cop stopped the other from helping him, watch bootlickers defend this one

It baffles me why people place themselves in harm's way then are surprised when they get hurt. Stupidity is truly non- racist

Disgusting treatment by the cops, but what is a 75 year old doing out there getting into tussles with the cops. He should be at home enjoying his retirement. Hope he pulls through.

It's the lies that destroy the publics faith in your integrity and committed pledge to protect and serve ... If you cant be accountable with facts about your conduct on a senior citizen... Then don't assume your badge means you are to be believed.... Wearing that badge means you are accountable always to the public you serve... Every lie tarnishes that badge.... And dilutes your integrity.. Destroying the ability of real police to do the job..... Ethically.... Yep those pesky little things called ethics and integrity..... Either take ur oath seriously or get the hell out of policing

The amount of victim blaming in the comments here is pretty disgusting. He's an old man and he was peacefully protesting. There is no excuse for pushing him like that. Police can't just treat people however they like.

What the state asks for the state gets. Having thugs for police officers is no accident.

Shoving the older guy is battery; if police didn't want him in the area they could have just arrested him without having to use force like that. If they didn't want to arrest him then there was no need to touch him. Looked like the older guy was bleeding from his ear after hitting his head on the pavement.

Both sides are point scorring useely... Cops do something violent the left goes screw the right... the protestors do something violent the right goes screw the left... weird thoght maybe they shoud both stop? and stop point scoring?

He should have been fired on the spot. What was he thinking? It's an old man and even if he is being aggressive it wasn't needed.

If you hang out in a riot you're gonna get pushed down. I don't care if it's a 75 year old man or my grandma. I wouldn't let either of them attend something like this play stupid games win stupid prizes.

This is how we show solidarity. With all our minds in some sort of unison. They believe they have better controls. We use nature

One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year. Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall. https://www.ncoa.org/news/resources-for-reporters/get-the-facts/falls-prevention-facts/#:~:text=According%20to%20the%20U.S.%20Centers,adult%20dies%20from%20a%20fall.

Police should focus on the 10% or less who are opportunistic looters and leave the constitutionally protected protestors alone.
