two officers in Buffalo were arrested for pushing a 75 year old protestor who decided to confront police instead of moving along. he was shoved (as taught) but lost his balance, fell, and cracked his head.
from now on the police should just keep backing up as far as they need to. do not confront or respond..if they do, the biased media will want them arrested.
my opinion is they just somehow manage to steer the rioting crowds towards the news stations and just keep backing away.

That really is an unfortunate incident for everyone involved. Sounded like the guys head hit the pavement pretty hard. That's never good at any age. It really didn't appear the cops shoved him very hard ....normally a shove like that would not have ended in a fall. But given the fact there was absolutely no crowd, the cops could and should have just walked around the guy. Still, It really does not look like the cops intended to harm the guy, but they did and it will no doubt cost them some grief.

The man is a known “activist” and approached a moving line of riot police, tasked by the BLACK DEMOCRAT MAYOR to enforce the curfew that HE put in place.

So Mr. Activist approaches, taps one of the officers on the arm several times after being told to move back more than once and even appears to move his hands toward the area of the officer’s belt.

But hey, these kind of tactics are nothing new from the left. Watch a bunch of videos on ANTIFA and you will notice that they routinely have women on the front lines so that any advance of police will show them shoving a woman down and the cameras will catch it all. Similar tactic to Hamas or Hezbollah who place their weapons caches and rocket launchers around schools so that when the IDF takes them out, they can exploit the collateral damage.

It appears they have sent the geriatrics in now in order to get some footage of “police brutality”. Shouldn’t he have been sheltering at home anyway?

The cops did nothing wrong. You have a large group of cops walking down the street to clear the area and the old guy was in defiance. he refuse to move. Period.

The cops didn't intentionally try and hurt him. When clearing an area you don't want anybody behind you They tried to get him to backup and they used the tools they were issue to push him back. It was an accident.

The blood appears to come out of his ear. I would have thought it would have come from the back of his head first then maybe from his ear. Hmmm?

It pretty clear that some protestors are trying to "bait" police into doing something where they can claim police brutality.
Yes. Watch the videos closely and you’ll see the tactics that they use.

They’ll put their hands up and then chest bump officers and attempt to push the back and then when one of them goes flying from the pushback of police, everyone starts screaming and shouting about the “brutality” and how they “weren’t doing anything”.

They like to stand in front of a line of moving riot police, much like grandpa did here, and their the police knock them over, they go flying with a dive they would make LeBron proud.

They occupy the attention of the police on the front lines while the bricks and frozen water bottles come flying in from the back.

They also like to resist arrest, especially the women, so that the cameras can pick up the police ragdolling a 100lb female who is thrashing around and claim “brutality”.

Their tactics are easily recognizable and quite frankly stale. They always attempt to agitate and provoke a strong response from police and then go running to the news cameras and claim excessive force was used and that they weren’t doing anything.

There's a great little video making the rounds on social media about a protester who goes too far with a cop. The protester runs right up into the cop's face and then runs away. She gets away with it twice but on the third try the cop's partner has the timing figured out and makes a successful lunge. Yep, the dog grabbed the protester by the seat of her pants, another protester has her by the arm, and the knucklehead on camera duty is hollering "Blah the Blah? Blah the Blah?" (yeah, you know the words) like their side don't know that such a thing could happen if they got too close.
I got no moral to fit the story, but it's a fun video to watch.:grin2:

Yep, mission accomplished!!! The old fool succeeded in EXACTLY what they all intend to do. They push confrontation after confrontation until there's an incident. That's ALWAYS their goal.

The George Floyd GoFundMe is above $13.5 Mill. I would guess dog bites or a cracked skull is worth at least a couple hundred grand. Maybe that's a new retirement funding mechanism for Mom's Basement dwellers.

Watched the video and the guy got what he deserved. Don’t care if he is 75 either and I imagine he has probably been an obnoxious human being the majority of his life.
Getting so sick of these protests. People going to these things knowing full well they could possibly get arrested or injured tells me they have no other responsibilities in life. If you have a job or a family to take care of you can’t afford to put yourself in these situations. Most of these people are losers living off the government or have someone else taking care of them. I also understand many people fall on hard times and can be unemployed for a period of time but if you are a responsible person you will not engage in these violent protests or at least evacuate when you are warned.

That old fool is only a couple years older than me. If by this age he hasn't learned enough to stay out of a dangerous situation then I think he just did learn that lesson. I don't have a lot of sympathy for him because it was his choice to place himself there and to me it did not appear that the cops made an overt effort to harm him. He looked to frail to be out there tussling with riot police, a mans got to know his limitations.

The old guy was looking for trouble when he put his hands on the cop’s belt. As others have said, it was intentional, not by accident.

Ever been in a picket line of a striking union? Not picketing teachers or fast food workers wanting $15 an hour. I’m talking about strikers that are stopping delivery trucks or replacement workers. There’s always a guy or two that keep nudging closer and closer to traffic until they feign being hit by a vehicle. Then the local president jumps in front of a tv camera and claims his membership is being run down in the street like dogs. It’s all part of the plan.

The old guy should have been told not to break his fall with the back of his head.

Reality is, like it or not, the police need to recognize that cameras are everywhere. Anything you do is recorded for CNN.

So get the cops and black leaders together and decide what is the acceptable protocol for regaining control of a situation that turns ugly.

Do it all in public, 100% transparency.

A responsible leader, black or white, has to agree that there are those who hijack a peaceful protest and start the chaos. There must be a means to regain order.

Something like you get three verbal warnings, one minute apart, and if you do not disperse the police will form the human line and move you back, by physical force if necessary, and if you choose to stay in the way, what happens to you is on you.

Rocks and bottles get thrown, tear gas and non lethal weapons. Bean bags, sticky foam.

Those found to be from out of town, big penalties, and if from a different state, federal charges.

Announce the protocols on TV and news media so everyone knows. The cops and black leaders came up with this together so a peaceful protest can occur and not wreck the city.

Question is, will those leaders ever agree to anything except letting everyone have free reign and the cops do nothing?

If there is 100% transparency, everyone will know where the problems are.

Everyone wants to protest police behavior but few offer a different idea for how to do it.

Are we talking about some hypothetical all black city here or just the average American city? It's important because some folks might consider your plan to be exclusionary to every other ethnic group in any city that has even the least bit of diversity.
We have all sorts of rules that have been developed since the dawn of time to handle all sorts of situations. We shouldn't throw those rules out just because for the past three or four decades liberals have been promoting the idea that every demand made by every possible voter block must be met. We have laws on the books that must be used. We do not need new laws designed to appease any certain group that burns down our cities.
