After the incident in Buffalo, NY, where a 75-year old man was pushed to the ground by police and then left there, visibly bleeding from the head, the Buffalo PD released the following statement:
“a 5th person was arrested during a skirmish with other protestors and also charged with disorderly conduct. During that skirmish involving protestors, one person was injured when he tripped & fell.”
Here’s the video:
Along with the statement, Buffalo released the newest version of the “New Buffalo-American Dictionary, 2020 Edition” in which the following definition of “tripped & fell” appears:
v. tripped & fell – occurs when someone, generally a police officer, pushes an individual down resulting in that individual hitting his head on the ground causing momentary unconsciousness and bleeding.
Obviously, I made up that definition. Sorry about that, but I couldn’t help myself. Police brutality is not funny. But the lie covering up the incident in Buffalo was so incredulous, so ridiculous, I had to respond. I did so in the best way I know how – by ridiculing the ridiculous.
And talking about ridiculous…don’t these people know everything they do ends up on video? If that’s not enough to stop them, I’m not sure what is.
