All 57 members of the Buffalo Police Department's emergency response team resigned after two of their members were suspended for pushing a 75-year-old man to the ground during the George Floyd protests.
President of Buffalo Police Benevolent Association, John Evans said at the time that the officers were "simply doing their job" and that the man "slipped" during the interaction. The mass resignation reportedly came at the direction of the union.
Stefan Mychajliw is county comptroller for New York. He has been criticised for using the protests to advertise his bid for congress.
