In a shocking video, posted on Instagram, an NYPD cruiser can be seen inching towards a barrier set up on a street in New York City, placed to keep protestors on one side.
But, at one point, the officer FLOORS the SUV crashing into the barrier and sending people flying.
In the clip, one of the people who gets hit by the car actually stands up and starts jumping on the windshield of the police car.

Snoop Dogg responded to seeing the shocking video by saying, “This don’t surprise me they kill n—-z on tape every day with no consequence police y’all got to do better or expect what u dish out.”
Rapper Cardi B also reacted to seeing the brutal video, saying simply, “Unbelievable.”
As we said after the video went viral on social media, New York mayor Bill de Blasio defended the NYPD’s actions during Saturday nights protest against George Floyd’s death.
Take A Look…
In a news conference, de Blasio admitted the video was “upsetting” but said the protestors were wrong for surrounding the SUV. In the video, protestors began throwing traffic cones and other items at the vehicle as it approached the barrier.
“It is inappropriate for protestors to surround a police vehicle and threaten police officers,” he said. Adding, “That’s wrong on its face and that hasn’t happened in the history of protests in this city.”
The mayor continued, It’s “clear that a different element has come into play here who are trying to hurt police officers and trying to damage their vehicles.”

The mayor said he wished the police officer would not have driven into the crowd, but “understood they didn’t start the situation,” and made it clear the situation was “started by a group of protesters converging on a police vehicle.”
Fans reacted strongly to Snoop and Cardi B’s position on the video, with one saying — “I’m actually not surprised by this, the NYPD is one of THE worst gangs there is.”
Another added, “This is why we need these demonstrations. Keep exposing who these people really are. It’s all on film now. No more hiding the truth ?
