WATCH: Utah Cops Shove Elderly Man with Cane to Ground for Walking too Slow

With complete disregard for the news cameras that were recording everything, a Salt Lake City police officer in riot gear ordered an elderly man with a cane to walk away, knocking him to the ground when he did not walk away fast enough.

“Sadly, a man was just knocked off his feet,” the ABC 4 reporter says in her live broadcast as another cop in riot gear – probably aware that the camera was rolling – walked up to the man and helped him back up.

According to ABC 4:

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – While ABC4 News was live on air during riots in Salt Lake City Saturday night they captured a police officer armed in protective gear shoving a man with a cane down onto the street.

That video has now gone viral after it was posted to the station’s ABC4 YouTube channel and has been picked up by viewers around the country, many expressed anger at the officers actions.

ABC4 has reached out to SLCPD for comment who said they have received a lot of feedback on the video. Detective Greg Wilking with SLCPD said it is one of their officers and Chief Mike Brown will be releasing a statement Sunday afternoon on the incident.

Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown issued his statement by video Sunday evening which is included in the above clip of the shoving incident. Brown called the incident “inappropriate” and said the officer will be investigated but did not release his name. He said the cop will be investigated by internal affairs as well as by the Civilian Review Board.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
