A person who taped two-plus hours of yesterday's protest has video of the injured 75-year-old man in possession of his own helmet and was not returning one to the police: https://t.co/D4LKxoSXSr
RT @DAErieCountyNY: The Erie County DA’s Office continues to investigate the incident captured on video outside City Hall that resulted in the injury of protester. The victim was taken to ECMC to be treated for a head injury. He was unable to provide a statement to investigators last night.
The only person who should be excommunicated is police spokesman Mike DeGeorge.
By tweeting this I put myself and my station at risk of being excommunicated by that one person. But after consulting my team, we are ready for that. (3/3)
RT @AshleyroweWKBW: THREAD: While I have your attention: The spokesperson for the Mayor of Buffalo is the same person as the spokesperson for the Buffalo Police Department. The free press has one single person to reach out to for all matters regarding the city and police investigations. (1/3)
Let’s hope, indeed. Because as anyone who’s followed concussions knows, it can take weeks, months or even years for symptoms to subside.
New update on the 75 year old man injured during last night's BPD incident: he is still in serious but stable condition at the Erie County Medical Center and, as was relayed to me by an ECMC official, he is "alert and oriented." That is better news. Let's hope he fully recovers.
Holy ****. I think this is right. If he was indeed trying to return police equipment and they blasted him for it ... holy ****.
Mayor Brown on MSNBC about false police statement: “Uh, I am aware of that. I did not see that report. These events are moving very quickly. Police personnel are working around the clock. Um, uh, certainly I don’t think there was any attempt, uh, to mislead or falsify a report.”
Following up on “tripped and fell,” can any Buffalo media who were there confirm this “physical altercation?” Of course, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were now defining rock, paper, scissors as a “physical altercation” to deflect attention.
RT @yashar: This is so difficult to watch but I urge you to if you can. An elderly man pushed over by Buffalo PD...he's bleeding. An officer leans down and is told to move on by another officer. Then the Buffalo PD tells the media that the man tripped...which is a clear lie via @WBFO https://t.co/pOfpCHOq3m
RT @MatthewFairburn: Leslie Frazier said he really believes that teammates will give Jake Fromm the benefit of the doubt based on the team meeting today. "Guys are going to give Jake every chance to prove that that was a teachable moment and he's learning and growing."
