Buffalo Police Officers Charged With Assaulting 75-Year-Old Protester

Two police officers in Buffalo, New York, were charged with assault Saturday.

A video showed the officers shoving 75-year-old protester Martin Gugino in recent demonstrations over the death of George Floyd.

Law enforcement was in the process of clearing demonstrators from Niagara Square around an 8 pm curfew.

The pair of officers pushed Gugino backward, causing his head to hit the pavement, spilling blood as officers walk past.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany defended President Trump after he floated a baseless conspiracy theory in one of his tweets. The president commented on an incident involving Martin Gugino, a 75-year-old man who was shoved to the ground by police in Buffalo, New York. Trump described the elderly man as an “Antifa provocateur”, and claimed he was scanning “police communications in order to block out the equipment.” McEnany insisted that the president was only pointing out “questions that need to be asked,” adding that Trump did not regret what he said.
