Some more fourth-generation warfare?
Video of a police officer being forcefully struck on the back of the head with a baseball bat has attracted national attention after protests swept across the U.S. in the wake of the verdict in the Breonna Taylor case.
The clip showed an officer with the Seattle Police Department having fallen to the ground from his bicycle. A protester is then seen throwing a cone at him before the officer reached for and fired pepper spray into the crowd.
Another demonstrator then approached from behind and struck the officer on the back of the head with what police described as a “metal baseball bat,” hitting his helmet.
The officer continued to aim pepper spray at the crowd as he dragged his bicycle towards the line of police.
