Peace Activist Mr. Gugino, 75, stops in front of officers at George Floyd Protest to talk. Officers push Gugino backwards, landing on his head with blood immediately leaking from his right ear.

An officer leans down to examine him, but another officer then pulls the first officer away. Several other officers are seen walking by the man, motionless on the ground, without checking on him. One man was even arrested trying to help Gugino laying on the ground.

Mr. Gugino is currently in stable condition. 

Initially NY Police Department’s initial claim was that he “tripped and fell,” but after several videos went viral of the incident, they changed their statement. 

Officers are responding to protests against police violence with more police violence. THIS NEEDS TO STOP. 

Two officers involved ( Aaron Torgalski, 39, and Robert McCabe, 32,) are both charged with assault in the second degree and are pleading not guilty. We want these officers to face the consequences of their actions. It is their job to keep composure during situations like these. They did NOT do their job to protect and serve, therefore they should not be able to continue working. 

WE WANT JUSTICE FOR MR. GUGINO AND JUSTICE FOR ALL POLICE BRUTALITY ACTS!
