As more and more videos of police brutality circulate the internet, this one hits close to home. Officers in Buffalo dressed in riot gear pushed over an elderly man who came up to talk to them. As you can see in the video, the man falls backwards and lays motionless and he immediately begins to bleed.  Buffalo’s police commissioner ordered an immediate Internal Affairs investigation into this incident and ended up indefinitely suspending the two officers. The man suffered a laceration & possible concussion.
