Video captured by WBFO on June 4, 2020 show two Buffalo police officers shoving a man to the ground during a protest in front of City Hall, causing an injury that left him bleeding from his head. The two officers have been suspended without pay and a full Internal Affairs investigation has been ordered. The man who was shoved was in stabled condition at ECMC in Buffalo as of Thursday night.
NEW: We're learning more about the man seen on the video. He's 75 years old and a longtime activist, known to many in the Buffalo community.
For his privacy, I will not be releasing his name or other identifying information.

I saw that. Excessive use of force. Even though I think this may have been an accident in their part, it shows how thoughtless these police actions are.
These guys didn’t even stop, nor had any show of concern.

Poor old white, really could not expect that a cop would physically assault him. Probably just asking directions or something, so trusting…

@voltairine Hi, what I meant by accident is, the Police guy probably didn’t think their push would cause the guy to fall like that. That’s what I meant by that. However, the police pushing the victim is no accident. He is still very culpable, and he shouldn’t have done such a thing to begin with.
Meaning, there was an intent to harm, but the guy caused far more harm than intended.
