A day ago I made a facebook video about the old man that got pushed down hard by the cops. This morning I see another old man going down – hard! I said that image would resonate for years to come. Here is the shot that will be heard around the world. Trump called the demonstrators in front of his house “terrorists”. Real terrorists will use this image to recruit suicide bombers who may have cold feet. As an old man I have been terrorized by anarchists and my neighbors who invoked their name. One kicked my cat. The anarchists are tearing up downtown Eugene. Who are the anarchists?
The first old man down video inspired me to start ‘The Recliner Report’. You have to confirm your age in order to watch this video. If you are over 65 you can’t watch it due to risk of having a heart attack. Note the blood coming out the back of the old man’s head. This might make seniors feel faint, make them associate with the old man down. Note the cops seeing this blood, and not coming to his aid, or, calling for an ambulance.
My neighbors came after me when they read on facebook my declaration I was the antichrist, a title applied to Trump after he used a statue of a Pope to give the message he was holy. SLEEPS deface the statue of Ken Kesey, used it in their wiccan ritual. The ZAROZ theme is permeating our history.
“Utterly disgraceful” was Governor Andrew Cuomo’s reaction to a video showing two police officers shoving an elderly man to the pavement at a demonstration in Buffalo, New York, on the tenth night of protests over the death of George Floyd in police custody.
The WBFO video, which has been viewed over 38 million times on Twitter, shows a cluster of police officers in riot gear walking across Buffalo’s Niagara Square following demonstrations earlier in the evening.
As an elderly man approaches the police and tries to talk with the officers, someone can be heard shouting, “Push him back!” One officer raises his baton over the man, while another pushes the man’s chest.
The 75-year-old man falls to the ground backwards and lies, apparently unresponsive, as a pool of blood is seen slowly forming under his head.
The Buffalo Police Department’s initial statement was that “one person was injured when he tripped & fell” in a skirmish between police and protesters. But minutes later, local station WBFO broadcast the video of the incident, prompting an Internal Affairs investigation and Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood’s move to suspend the two officers.
The man, who has not been identified, and was in “serious, but stable condition” at the Erie County Medical Center.
“I was deeply disturbed by the video,” said Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, in a statement. “After days of peaceful protests and several meetings between myself, police leadership and members of the community, tonight’s event is disheartening.”
