LAPD officers throw black protester from his wheelchair and damage it

An officer for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), appeared to push a disabled Black Lives Matter protester out of his wheelchair, before one of his colleagues damaged it. The incident was filmed by a demonstrator at a protest in California on Tuesday and the footage has been circulated on social media.

In the video, the African American man who police later identified as Joshua Wilson, was knocked out of his wheelchair and onto the floor after officers pushed it upside down. While he was on the ground with one of his legs still in the wheelchair, he attempted to take a baton from one of the officers, while two others tried to hold him back.

As the two officers attempted to detain him, another one dragged the wheelchair away from the protesters and appeared to break one of the wheels in the process. Source
