An older woman is featured in a video posted to Twitter by the local Fox affiliate. While the majority of the violence has occurred at night, it is broad daylight in the video, and the women appears to be showing no signs of violence
The woman was face-to-face with one officer’s shield, when a neighboring officer shoved her with his shield and pushed her to the ground. As another protester tried to help the woman up off of the ground, police began to push him out of the way, even going as far as to douse him with pepper spray.
Other officers caught on, and one of them reached down and yanked the woman up, off of the ground. However, once she was standing, the officers who surrounded her proceeded to put her in handcuffs.
