New York police officers suspended after viral video shows them shoving 75-year-old man to ground

USA Today:

Two New York police officers have been suspended after a viral video showed them shoving a 75-year-old man to the ground on Thursday night.

The graphic video shared on Twitter shows a man walking up to Buffalo Police Department officers. It is unclear if he exchanged words with the officers before he is shoved to the sidewalk. The man stumbles back and falls and the video shows him motionless and bleeding from his head.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz tweeted Friday morning that a hospital official said the man was “alert and oriented.”
