To all the many, many good cops out there – this doesn’t help anything.
From the New York Post:
A Seattle cop was filmed rolling his bicycle over a man’s helmeted head as he lay down on the street during violent Black Lives Matter protests sparked by the decision not to charge cops for Breonna Taylor’s death.
The dungaree-wearing protester — called “trumpet man” by others in the crowd — was shown prone on the ground more than once as groups of bike cops pushed the mob back after declaring the march an unlawful protest.
As the officers advanced another time, one appeared to have had enough — and steered his bike’s wheels over the protester’s white safety helmet, according to a CJTV Media live stream. The officer — who was walking the bike at the time — then appeared to use it to hit another man to stop him getting too close.
Seattle police said it was “aware” of the video.
Two police officers swerved. One (riding) swerved to avoid him. The other (walking) swerved to run over his head and neck. Two very different kinds of cops exemplified in one video.
