Video: Buffalo Officer Shoves An Elderly Man To Ground Then Walks Past As He Bleeds


A Buffalo cop was captured on video shoving a 75-year-old man to the ground, causing him to bang his head on the sidewalk and start bleeding from the back of his skull, according to NYP.

The video shows the elderly man, wearing a face mask, walk up to a line of riot-gear clad police officers near the City Hall building soon after a curfew went into effect.

Police shout out to the man to move back, then one of them pushes him, causing him to stumble backward and slam his head into the pavement.

One of the cops then bends down to check on him, but other officers pull him away and call for a medic.

Blood then starts to pour from the back of the old man’s head and his ears.

They said he tripped and fell.

My God, has everyone in this nation lost their minds? Knocking an old man to the pavement then just leaving him to bleed profusely is unconscionable. I expect this kind of reprehensible behavior from Leftists but not from our police officers.

UPDATE: The two officers have been immediately suspended by Buffalo Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood. A full Internal Affairs investigation is underway.

He did not trip and fall. The sound of his scull cracking upon impact with the concrete indicates he was forcefully shoved. The police officer should be charged with manslaughter if this man dies. It will be a miracle if the elderly man survives IMHO. So tragic & unnecessary!
