Horrific video of cop rammed by car in New York emerges amid anti-police-brutality unrest

Horrific video of cop rammed by car in New York emerges amid anti-police-brutality unrest
A police officer has been viciously run over by a vehicle on a New York City crosswalk. Major US cities have become centers of protest and street battles, following a police killing of an unarmed black man.

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.
