The video was shot by Roger Gaona.
Shot this today at 8am, on our way back to the general assembly.
The Scooter policeman stops when he hooks his victim’s foot , then continues to apparently drive over it or around it and finish off the job with the back wheel.
You can clearly see the officer’s conscious will to acknowledge his trapped victim and getting off to fend off the rest who may try to help him. Notice these steel engines’ mass is extremely heavy for a middle aged man’s ankle’s bones. then another officer notices the scooter and pushes it down (thankfully), yet another manages to instead of help the suffering him, finish him off by beating him with a club. Another comes in and tackle-pressed him down on the ground on his chest finishing the arresting process.
Gideon Oliver, who is on the executive committee of the New York City chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, confirmed to TPM that the man in the video is one of their legal observers. Oliver wouldn’t give the man’s name or confirm the extent of his injuries, but he did say the man is currently in the emergency room receiving medical attention — and that he is under arrest.
