Protests against police brutality and racism have led to viral videos and criminal charges. Two Buffalo police officers who were seen in a viral video pushing a 75-year-old man to the ground were arraigned Saturday morning. Both men were charged with felony assault after several videos of the incident were published on social media.
Aaron Torgalski and Robert McCabe pleaded not guilty to the charges, and both were released on their own recognizance. They are due to return to court on July 20 to face charges. If they are convicted, they could face seven years in prison.
