When all 57 Buffalo police officers on the emergency response team resign because two were suspended for knocking down a 75-year-old man and sending him to the hospital, this seems like an opportunity to find 57 new police officers who don't approve of assaulting senior citizens.
A 75-year-old protester who was shoved to the ground by police in Buffalo, NY has a fractured skull and is unable to walk, says his lawyer. His condition has not improved since he was pushed 2 weeks ago. 2 officers have been charged with assault and face up to 7 years in prison.
According to @JeffRussoWKBW a Buffalo Police Department spokesperson gave this statement in apparent reference to this?! “during that skirmish involving protestors, one person was injured when he tripped & fell” Are they aware cameras exist or?
Let’s just remember the 57 members of the Buffalo Emergency Response Team HAVEN’T retired from the police dept. They simply left that team. They are still getting salaries. Paid for by taxpayers. Maybe they should be fired.
Pres. Trump tweeting an unhinged conspiracy theory about an older gentleman severely hurt in Buffalo is not a political story. It defies any effort at rationalization or explanation. The problem is not that he tweeted it. The problem is he entertains this insanity.
