District Attorney investigating police-involved protester injury in Buffalo as NEW video emerges

A 75-year-old protester injured after a Buffalo police officer pushed him during a demonstration in Niagara Square Thursday night is in stable but serious condition as the district attorney’s office investigates the incident that was captured on video.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, multiple videos taken by reporters and bystanders show a police officer pushing an elderly man, causing him to fall backwards onto a sidewalk. In the videos, the man is seen bleeding from the head or ear, and remains still on the pavement as police officers walk past him without appearing to offer any aid.

WARNING: GRAPHIC, DISTURBING VIDEOS:

Later Thursday night, the Buffalo Police Department suspended two officers involved in the incident, without pay.
