Michigan mounted police trample pro-union protester with horse
Michigan State Police mounted on horseback reportedly knocked down at least one pro-union demonstrator at the State Capitol on Tuesday.
Video posted by the Lansing State Journal shows a man laying on the ground as several mounted police awkwardly try to move their horses through a crowd of people protesting the so-called “right to work” legislation being pushed through by Republican lawmakers.
Protesters boo and try to shame the police while the man appears unable to get up.
“That’s fucking bullshit!” one protester shouts. “Bullshit!”
“Get that fucking horse out of here!” another man yells.
Lansing State Journal‘s Dave Wasinger later tweeted confirmation of the incident.
