During a protest in Buffalo, New York, 75-year-old Martin Gugino, a faithful peace activist and Catholic church volunteer, was shoved to the ground by police officers and was knocked unconscious. The incident was filmed and posted online showing Gugino bleeding from his ears and ultimately "sent him to the hospital for a month to recover from a brain injury and a fractured skull," said USA Today last August.

Now, according to the New York Daily News, the charges against the two officers who shoved the man, are being dismissed.

"Buffalo Police Department officers Robert McCabe and Aaron Torgalski had faced felony charges" for their actions against the man, "fracturing his skull and causing him to bleed from his head."

Erie County District Attorney John Flynn said at a press conference Thursday, that the video of the crime was enough for him to bring charges, but the grand jury refused to bring it to trial.
