Horrific video of cop rammed by car in New York emerges amid anti-police-brutality unrest
The short clip, which has been circulating on social media, shows a black car ramming a police officer as he was standing at a crosswalk.
The vehicle appears to speed up just before it hits the man. The victim then lies motionless on the ground, before being picked up by a police van.
New York and several other major US cities have become the centers of mass anti-police-brutality protests, sparked by the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, during an attempted arrest by a white officer. Many of the demonstrations remain peaceful, but – especially during nights – riots and major clashes between law enforcement and protesters continue unabated.
Two NYPD patrol cars were earlier filmed ramming a group of protesters who were blocking a road. A similar incident was recorded in the city of Buffalo, New York State, where a car plowed through a group of police officers.Also on rt.com NYPD police cruisers RUN INTO crowds of protesters in terrifying video
