2 Buffalo Cops Reinstated. Shoved protester, Of Course, He Sues!

Remember the 2 Buffalo Cops that shoved some 75 YO chump out of the way during a protest for this or that cause? The protester took a dive and struck his head. He sustained a bunch of medical stuff…too bad!

In June of 2020 the cops were clearing an area around city hall. The protester blocked their movement. He was gently but firmly pushed aside and fell to the ground.

In a typical knee-jerk reaction the cops were suspended and charged with assault. The Grand Jury refused to indict. The cops were still suspended. Oh yeah, the ENTIRE emergency response team resigned.

Fast forward to last week. A state arbitrator, after hearing from all the parties, found the cops to be doing exactly what they’re supposed to. He ordered them returned to duty with back pay. OK, where do these cops go to get their reputation back? Perhaps a suit against the protester is in order.

  1. Citizens protesting are not “chumps”.
    The “too bad” attitude is why cops aren’t respected. Carrying out their responsibilities is not a license to injure, maim, or kill.

    1. All the “CHUMP” had to do was clear the area. I’m glad the cops got reinstated. Comply and no one gets hurt. What’s so difficult about that. Sorry your feather’s got ruffled a few time by the cops…you probably deserved it.


    2. You can protest but you still have to comply with police instructions. If you don’t, you’re a chump.
