Buffaloed

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown issued the following statement on the date of the incident saying he was “deeply disturbed by the video”:

“Tonight, after a physical altercation between two separate groups of protesters participating in an illegal demonstration beyond the curfew, two Buffalo Police officers knocked down a 75-year-old man. The victim is in stable but serious condition at ECMC. I was deeply disturbed by the video, as was Buffalo Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood. He directed an immediate investigation into the matter, and the two officers have been suspended without pay. After days of peaceful protests and several meetings between myself, Police leadership and members of the community, tonight’s event is disheartening. 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.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in a tweet, called the incident “wholly unjustified and utterly disgraceful.” 

Cuomo called President Trump’s tweet promoting conspiracy theories about an elderly protester who was hospitalized after being shoved to the ground by police in Buffalo “reprehensible.”

“President Trump did a tweet today that surprises me — even after all the tweets that he has done,” Cuomo said at his daily press briefing. The governor said he was shocked and disgusted by the president’s suggestion that the 75-year-old man is an “ANTIFA provocateur” and may have been trying to “set up” law enforcement.

  1. This President manages to repeatedly find new lows! Anyone who viewed that horrible video of an elderly man being knocked to the ground has to be offended by the officer in question.
    And this jerk-off Trump says it’s staged? What a total imbecile! It’s an awful thing to Hate, but I think I have succumbed to the emotion, more’s the pity. Bring on the elections and let’s see this moron get unceremoniously dumped onto the streets.
    Then we can truly “Make America DECENT Again”
