[Video] Buffalo Police Claimed He Tripped – Now Video Has Been Released

There were more protests in America last night and for the most part, they stayed peaceful. Thousands of people in New York City protested the death of George Floyd after the 8pm curfew last night. They gathered in Brooklyn at the site where police used batons against demonstrators on Wednesday. In Buffalo, the police commissioner has suspended two officers following the release of a video that appears to show police shove a man who walked up to them. The video shows the man hitting his head on the pavement with blood leaking out of his ear, as the officers walk past. WIVB-TV reports that Buffalo police initially said in a statement a person “was injured when he tripped & fell.”
