“The cop pushed her so hard at Barclays & she flung back. She is tiny,” she wrote. “Now she’s in the ER after a serious seizure.”
She also posted video of the incident.
Update: Got her permission with a fuck yeah. The cop pushed her so hard at Barclays & she flung back. She is tiny. Now she’s in the ER after a serious seizure. I’m waiting for updates but have to wait outside because of COVID-19. Please keep my protest sister in your thoughts. pic.twitter.com/MqV0QJ0D8h
