Posted on 06/05/2020 1:08:59 PM PDT by RummyChick
the entire Emergency Response Team at the Buffalo Police Department has resigned in a show of solidarity for the cops suspended for shoving an elderly man to the ground.
A total of about 57 officers walked off the job Friday, though they are still employed with the police department -- just no longer on the ERT ... according to WIVB reporter Dave Greber.
The move comes less than 24 hours after video surfaced showing cops in heavy gear shoving 75-year-old Martin Gugino even though he was NOT being physically confrontational. A rep for Buffalo PD allegedly told a lcoal reporter the man was injured when he "tripped and fell," but the video shows that's clearly not the case.
Gugino started bleeding from his head and lay motionless immediately after his head hit the pavement.
The Buffalo Police Commissioner took swift action in announcing the 2 officers involved were suspended without pay. The Mayor of Buffalo said he was deeply disturbed over the incident, adding the elderly man is in serious but stable condition.

If I were a cop in a blue city, I’d be looking to move asap.
Good for Buffalo’s finest!
Hey,that’s a good start in the effort to cut the department’s budget and power.Now few “unarmed black men” will be killed by Buffalo police.
Whats the story?
Heck we are thinking about moving to Florida..California is a lost cause, see the Governor on TV pandering to LOOTERS
As the second sentence says: “A total of about 57 officers walked off the job Friday, though they are still employed with the police department — just no longer on the ERT”
That old dude was ABSOLUTELY being confrontational. He touched two officers with his phone as he stood in their line of march.
The mayor’s house is wide open.

Hammer is good for hammering things.
How is the old dude doing? I assume well or we’d be hearing about it.
WTG Cuomo and de Blasio....keep it up and you won’t have police force and ALL of NYC becomes the slums. But hey, on the bright side, won’t have to worry about defund the police, huh? Frakin’ Idiots, way to wreck your state and city!!!!!
They are still with the police force - they just quit the ERT. I’m guessing that with their union contract they can do that and still keep their jobs.
Apply for a security position at a big company. Pay is probably better and a lot less stress.
If the geezer made contact with the cop, why didn’t they cop just arrest and cuff the geezer? Wouldn’t that have been the proper way to deal with the old man?
