Video appears to show NYPD truck plowing through crowd 1


New York police are investigating after a video appears to show a New York City Police Department truck plowing through a crowd during a George Floyd protest in Brooklyn.
The 27-second video, which was posted to Twitter, shows an NYPD truck in front of a crowd throwing objects at the vehicle. There is a barricade in front of the truck. The truck then appears to drive into the barricade, knocking over protestors. Screaming and yelling are then heard while a person is seen jumping on top of the truck. It's unclear if there were any injuries.
CNN has reached out to the NYPD, New York governor and Attorney General's office for comment. Earlier, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he ordered the state attorney general to independently review the events of Friday's protests that included protesters clashing with police in Brooklyn and other boroughs.

      @XZ-GamerTV 1) Try to find ‘a rock” in nyc.
      2) Who said “get out”? He could have DRIVEN BACKWARDS.
      3) Those people were STANDING BEHIND A BARRICADE. The cop had to plow through it to get to them.
      4) What do you mean by “let him go”. No one was surrounding him. THEY WERE STANDING BEHIND A BARRICADE.

    • @One by Land, Two if by Sea Run if by Air From looking at that video. I didn’t see anybody “run” over by the car. It’s all just fake to make the cop in that situation look bad. If he did have to go through that barricade then they should have let him pass. He’s an officer of the law (doesn’t mean he’s above the law) but usually in this situation maybe he had to go help someone out that was behind the crowd of people. You don’t know what his intentions were. I highly doubt he ran anyone over or anything close to that.

    • @One by Land, Two if by Sea Run if by Air Also the barricade wasn’t legal. Just like to point that out there. I would analyze the situation before making an argument.

      @XZ-GamerTV The video clearly shows the vehicle run into people. They didn’t evaporate as the cruiser lurched 15 ft forward into them.

      @XZ-GamerTV Lets Logic for a minute:
      You have a J-walker. That is unlawful. Let’s run him down with our police cruiser.
      Deadly force: justified against people standing in the street or not?
      That’s why we have laws. And they apply to the police too.

    The situation actually started because Floyd was murdered

    • Maggie Paul why being salty? I mean, of course the guy is wrong as f*ck but still …at least get your spelling together

    • @Joe Mincey Because he wanted Floyd to suffer, that’s why. He heard his cries for help and ignored. He brought this on himself.

      Joe Mincey it’s still police brutality that’s illegal he literally told the cop I can’t breathe just accept the facts

      @Miguel 💩 don’t worry about my spelling, Miguel. Maybe get an update on that grammar of yours before flattering yourself.

    They threw trash at me so I ran them over. Attempted Murder when you do it – inappropriate tactic when they do it. We are in 1984.

    • @V B that was a reference to a book called 1984, about a dystopic future society

      U.S. Code, Title 42, Section 1983:
      allows a civil rights suit seeking monetary damages for deprivation of rights under colour of authority

      U.S. Code, Title 18, Section 241:
      Peace officers can be prosecuted criminally and incarcerated if they conspire with other persons to deprive individuals of their legal rights

      U.S. Code, Title 18, Section 242:
      Peace officers can be prosecuted criminally if they apply a law unevenly because of a person’s colour, race, or the fact that the person is an alien.

      CA Penal Code Section 422.6(a):
      broader than U.S. Code, Title 18, Section 242 – It does not limit the governmental agent to acting only under “colour of law.” It includes additional categories of religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, gender, and sexual orientation that are protected from discrimination.

      Greg Foster You obviously were not listening to what Mayor De Blasio was saying. I know what is happening. Exactly what is your point? Plus, you condone these protesters behavior? So when you were on the force, your fellow police officers must of really loved you….NOT!!

    • Greg Foster well when this happens that happens

    • @ken r WHAT?

    Driving into the crowd is there way to deescalate or “get away” as he pointed out is the problem

  8. freeman acount | May 31, 2020 at 4:28 PM | Reply

    omg, De Blasio is going to get his cops hurt with speeches like that

  9. Chuckle Head | May 31, 2020 at 4:34 PM | Reply

    Assault with a deadly weapon, that’s what they would charge me with

  10. This is even more violent than the Hongkong protest

  11. “plowing” and one of the first word was FEAR. You make me laugh

  12. So can I drive into cops when they do that to me or will I get shot

    • John Farlio | May 31, 2020 at 7:24 PM | Reply

      That depends, are they purposely blocking the roads like little bitches and throwing all sorts of debris at your car? If so, absolutely

    • If you are that dumb to drive into cops, you should be shot.

    • John Farlio right, completely stupid….. People are just ridiculous these days! I’d probably run them over too! go home get a life!

    • As long as you state you got R mixed up with D.

    • laymelow so you’d attempt to kill someone for excersising their freedom to protest ? The double standard of Americans is truly amazing


  14. At this point I wanna go live on a island

    It doesn’t appear to, it does drive on purpose into a crowd

    The beginning is that G. Floyd was killed!

    Did we just hear the Mayor speak like a 5 year old child saying…..”they started it”

  18. they literally could have back up and got out of there..

  19. “Footage of cops running over Protesters ” I fixed your headline. Protesters were behind a barrier. That was attempted murder by those officers. That is criminal behavior by cops…EXACTLY what started these protests.

  20. Here’s a thought; get out of the way.
