This is how all mayors should respond, not like that weenie Minneapolis mayor who said he felt rioters sadness.
The city of Buffalo was not spared the fiery mayhem that has erupted in Minneapolis, New York, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta in the wake of the police killing of unarmed African American man George Floyd. The arrest of Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin, who pinned Floyd on the ground by pressing his knee on the man’s neck, did little to subdue the riots. A state of emergency went into effect in Buffalo at 10 p.m. ET Saturday night as rioters and looters began wreaking havoc.
WBEN’s Brendan Keany, who provided some first-person coverage of the event, said what started as a peaceful march suddenly became terrifying and violent when the marchers got back to Niagara Square. He witnessed a car “rush into a crowd of protesters” and then those same individuals flooded the car, and went after the driver. He captured part of it on video.
Here’s some of the video.
