Description: Martin Gugino is a 75-year-old professional agitator and Antifa provocateur who brags on his blog about the number of times he can get arrested and escape prosecution. According to Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown “There has been vandalism, there have been fires set, there have been stores broken into & looted. According to what was reported to me, that individual was a key major instigator of people engaging in those activities.” Mr. Gugino’s Twitter Account is also filled with anti-cop sentiment.

Last Thursday Gugino traveled from his New York home in Amherst, to Buffalo where he was seen on camera agitating a protest crowd. One of the protesters earlier remarked that Mr. Gugino was “acting like an asshole”, and “trying to get punched in the face.” During his effort Gugino was attempting to capture the radio communications signature of Buffalo police officers. CTH noted what he was attempting on Thursday night as soon as the now viral video was being used by media to sell a police brutality narrative. [Thread Here] Today, a more clear video has emerged that shows exactly what he was attempting. In this slow motion video, you will see Gugino using a phone as a capture scanner. You might have heard the term “skimming”; it’s essentially the same. Watch him use his right hand to first scan the mic of officer one (top left of chest). Then Gugino moves his hand to the communications belt of the second officer. WATCH CLOSELY:



The capture of communications signals [explained in detail here] is a method of police tracking used by Antifa to monitor the location of police. In some cases the more high tech capture software can even decipher communication encryption allowing the professional agitators to block (black-out), jam, or interfere with police communication. In addition, many police body-cams are bluetooth enabled which allows syncing. Unfortunately in the modern era the professional agitators have become very sophisticated and use technology to help create chaos. Their activity is highly coordinated, and as James O’Keefe has revealed in his undercover operations these professionals even stage events to manipulate public opinion. When he was pushed away by the officers Gugino fell and presumably hit his head. As a consequence of the shove, the two officers were suspended and the Buffalo authorities have arrested and charged the two police officers. In a show of support the entire Buffalo police unit that makes up the Emergency Response Team resigned their position. On Friday Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown admitted Gugino was a professional ‘agitator’ who tried to work up the crowd and had been asked to leave the area ‘numerous’ times. However, despite the known ideology and intent of Mr. Gugino; and despite a more careful look at the video highlighting exactly what Gugino was attempting; the Buffalo authorities are frozen by political correctness and have now arrested and charged the two officers.
(Via Daily Mail) – Two Buffalo cops have been arrested and charged with second degree assault after they shoved a 75-year-old peace activist to the ground Thursday causing him to crack his head open on the sidewalk, as hundreds of colleagues gathered outside the city court in solidarity to cheer their release without bail. Aaron Torgalski and Robert McCabe were each charged with one count of assault in the second degree in a court hearing Saturday morning over the shocking incident that left peaceful protester Martin Gugino in a ‘serious condition’ in hospital. The cops were arraigned in a virtual court hearing where they both pleaded not guilty to the charges and the two cops hid from the view of the camera. They each face up to seven years in prison if convicted of the class D felony. They were released without bail and will appear back in court on July 20.

It would appear Mr. Martin Gugino succeeded in his endeavor:

Coincidentally, as we noted at the time of the incident something does indeed seem sketchy with the behavior of Mr. Martin Gugino both before and during the encounter. Mr. Martin Gugino is a 75-year-old professional activist, agitator and Antifa provocateur who brags on his blog about the number of times he can get arrested and escape prosecution. Also, according to Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown remarking on the incident: “here has been vandalism, there have been fires set, there have been stores broken into & looted.

CTH noted what he was attempting on Thursday night as soon as the now viral video was being used by media to sell a police brutality narrative.



Over the weekend a more clear video emerged that shows what he was attempting. In the slow motion video, you will see Gugino using a device (phone?) as a frequency scanner. You might have heard the term “skimming”; it’s essentially the same. Watch him use his right hand to first scan the mic of officer one (top left of chest).

Police Handling of Elderly Buffalo Man: Fall Was 'Staged,' 'Fake Blood' Used, Claims Social Media

Police Handling of Elderly Buffalo Man: Fall Was 'Staged,' 'Fake Blood' Used, Claims Social Media

Description: Some social media users claim the viral video involving Buffalo police shoving an elderly man was orchestrated to make the cops look bad.



A graphic video of an elderly man being pushed by Buffalo police officers is being widely circulated on social media. The video shows the man falling to the ground and bleeding out of his ears. The viral clip has led to outrage and the suspension of the police officers involved. However, some social media users claim the video is a hoax and the elderly man in the video used fake blood. As previously reported by International Business Times, the elderly protester was severely injured on Thursday, June 4, after being pushed by the police officers as they cleared Niagara Square in Buffalo. In the video footage of the incident, the 75-year-old man can be seen walking up to officers in tactical gear as they marched towards demonstrators to sweep the area after the 8 p.m. curfew. As the man approaches, several officers can be seen forcing the man behind. "Move!," yells one of the officers before shoving the man's chest. The push caused the man, who has not yet been identified, to stumble back and fall backward before hitting his head on the concrete floor. The video then shows a pool of blood forming underneath the man's head almost immediately as people in the crowd can be heard saying, "he's bleeding out of his ears."

The man received medical attention at the scene and was taken to a nearby hospital, where he is currently in a stable but serious condition. The incident led to national and international outcry, prompting Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown to order an internal affairs investigation and suspend the two police officers involved.
New Tonight: Disturbing video from @WBFO in Buffalo, NY shows an elderly man walk up to police in riot gear. An officer shoves the man...he falls backwards, hits his head...starts bleeding immediately...motionless. Why did this happen @BPDAlerts ?

Video a 'Hoax,' Claim Users
Shortly after the video emerged, some social media users alleged that the video is a hoax and the elderly man hid fake blood inside his mask. "Antifa hoax. The so-called elderly man had a bag of fake blood in his mask. He wasn't pushed hard enough to fall. He took a dive," one user captioned an image of what the user believes is evidence that the incident was orchestrated. The image shows an odd bump on the back of the man's head, a can of fake blood, a squirting device and a photo of the man lying on the ground in a pool of blood pointing out two straps coming out of the man's mask, one of which is the supposed wiring of the device.

Another user who claims to be a former paramedic and ICU nurse, pointed out that "blood does NOT drain like a stream out of your ear like that." "Is this real?," commented another user. "It looks so bizzare and quite fake, almost like he's a dummy and that's an amazing amount of blood. I've seen ear drums ruptured, several times, they don't bleed that bad."



Martin Gugino Was Trying to 'Get Punched in the Face' Before Being Shoved by Buffalo Police, Suggests New Clip

Description: New video footage suggests Martin Gugino was trying to provoke the police before he was pushed and severely injured by two Buffalo police officers

Martin Gugino was pushed by Buffalo police officers before falling backward and bleeding out on the floor in a graphic video that was widely circulated on social media. The incident not only sparked outrage nationwide and internationally but also led to the suspension of the officers involved and the resignation of 57 Buffalo police officers in protest. A day after the video went viral, a new footage has emerged from Niagara Square, where the incident took place on Thursday, of protesters saying he was trying to provoke the cops.
Gugino Was Trying to Start Something, Say Protesters
In the clip, Gugino can be seen arguing with a group of protesters before the man recording the video asks one of the protesters, an African American male wearing a hat, what's going on. "This dude right here, he just started asking questions and he said he came down here for fun," the man answers. "What the f—k is fun about this s—t?". "I don't see no f-----g grill, I don't see no music, I don't see no dancing," the man says before pointing out that the 75-year-old is "looking to get punched in the face."



The video concludes with a blonde woman arguing with Gugino. "He was literally called out by peaceful protesters for being there yesterday," wrote Twitter user Rachel Danielle alongside the video. "He's a professional "protester" who does this to start nonsense. I wouldn't side with him on this one".

Moments later, Gugino was shoved by two police officers causing him to fall backward and hit his head on the concrete before he starts bleeding from his ears. Emergency medical attention was then administered to the victim before he was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment, where he is currently in a stable but serious condition, as previously reported.
Gugino Tried to Instigate the Crowd
Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown addressed Thursday's incident in a press conference on Friday afternoon, saying that Gugino was an agitator who was trying to rile up the crowd and was asked to leave the area "numerous" times. "What we were informed of is that that individual was an agitator. He was trying to spark up the crowd of people. Those people were there into the darkness. Our concern is when it gets dark, there is a potential for violence," Brown said. "There has been vandalism, there have been fires set, there have been stores broken into and looted. According to what was reported to me, that individual was a key major instigator of people engaging in those activities," he added. Brown's statement came after 57 officers on the Emergency Response Team resigned from their positions in support of their two colleagues who were suspended without pay after the video showed them pushing and injuring Gugino.
Was it Staged?
The new video footage has fueled the conspiracy theory that Gugino's fall was orchestrated and that he was trying to incite an extreme reaction from the police using fake blood to make them look like the "bad guys" on camera. As previously reported, conspiracy theorists are pushing the theory with images showing an odd bump on the back of Gugino's head, a can of fake blood, a squirting device and a photo of the man lying on the ground in a pool of blood pointing out two straps coming out of the man's mask, one of which they claim is the wire connecting the device.

Description: The elderly Buffalo protester knocked to the ground by cops in a viral video that has become an international symbol of police brutality was an “agitator” who was “trying to spark up the crowd of people,” the city’s mayor said. Explaining why he had yet to fire the officers seen pushing Martin Gugino, 75, to the ground, where he hit his head and bled onto the pavement, Mayor Byron Brown said, “I don’t want to jump ahead of the investigation. It is very important for officers to know they are getting due process,” according to WBEN Radio. Brown referenced violence, vandalism, looting and fires being set during protests in the city, then described Gugino as “a key and major instigator of people engaging in those activities” in remarks he made Friday. “He was in the area after the curfew. One of the things that happened before was conflict among protesters and there was a danger of fights breaking out, and police felt it was important to clear that scene for the safety of protesters,” said Brown. State Police will be brought in to assist Buffalo after 57 cops, the department’s entire Emergency Response Team, resigned in solidarity with the two officers who were suspended over the altercation with Gugino, the mayor said. “Our residents in every section in the city of Buffalo will be protected,” Brown said, vowing police would also protect “everyone who is peacefully protesting.” Gugino is recovering in the hospital.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The elderly Buffalo protester knocked to the ground by police officers in a viral video was an “agitator” who was “trying to spark up the crowd of people,” the city’s mayor said. Explaining why he had yet to fire the officers seen pushing Martin Gugino, 75, to the ground, where he hit his head and bled onto the pavement, Mayor Byron Brown said, “I don’t want to jump ahead of the investigation. It is very important for officers to know they are getting due process,” according WBEN. In the context of violence, vandalism, looting, and arson, the mayor described Gugino as “a key and major instigator of people engaging in those activities” in remarks he made Friday. “He was in the area after the curfew. One of the things that happened before was conflict among protesters and there was a danger of fights breaking out, and police felt it was important to clear that scene for the safety of protesters,” said Brown. Gugino is recovering in the hospital, reported the New York Post. State Police will be brought in to assist Buffalo after the department’s entire Emergency Response Team, consisting of 57 officers, resigned in solidarity with the two officers who were suspended over the altercation with Gugino, the mayor said. “Our residents in every section in the city of Buffalo will be protected,” Brown said, vowing police would also protect “everyone who is peacefully protesting.”

Police crowd-control unit resigns in protest

Police crowd-control unit resigns in protest

Description: Officers and their union object to suspension of two cops seen on video injuring demonstrator during anti-racism protest
A special squad on the Buffalo Police Department — the Emergency Response Team — has resigned from their posts, according to the Buffalo Police Benevolent Association. The announcement comes one day after two members were suspended without pay when a video surfaced, showing the officers pushing over a 75-year-old protestor, causing injury. The BPD Internal Affairs unit has opened an investigation into the incident. “Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” said John Evans, PBA president. All officers who resigned from ERT will remain on the job in their regular duties, Evans said. Their action stems from a decision by city officials Thursday to suspend two officers after video showed them shoving a 75-year-old protester who struck his head on the pavement and immediately started bleeding onto the pavement. The victim is hospitalized in serious but stable condition. The conduct of the officers has been widely condemned, by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, among others. The special response unit was formed in 2016 and is deployed to manage mass demonstrations and riots. They are the first line of defense and best trained officers in the department for these situations, according to Evans and other police sources. Their training includes pushing through crowds in order to maintain control. “Don’t put them out there if you don’t want them to do the job,” Evans wrote in a text to Investigative Post. “This is an example of officers doing exactly what they’re supposed to and then getting charged. It’s so wrong.” The unit’s training is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA’s, Field Force Operations course. It’s a three-day training which covers skills including baton-holding positions, mass-arrest procedures, and riot-control formations, according to the website. The mass resignation comes a few hours after the PBA — which represents virtually every member of the police department — sent an email to all members. In it, union leadership wrote: “I know it has been said that the admin won’t back you. After witnessing first hand how these two officers were treated, I can tell you, they tried to fuck over these guys like I have never seen in my 54 years.” The union email expressed concerns about being able to afford legal defense for ERT and SWAT members who have charges brought against them as the result of their actions during future protests. Last November, the state’s Court of Appeals ruled that the City of Buffalo was not obligated to pay for the civil defense of Buffalo Police Officer Cory Krug, who was caught on video in 2014 striking a Lackawanna man repeatedly with a baton on Chippewa Street. Because Krug had violated the department’s use of force policies, the court ruled, he was not working within the scope of his duty. Therefore, the city could opt out of paying his legal fees — though the city remained on the hook if the plaintiff won a judgment against Krug. That judgment could put the onus on the PBA and individual officers to pay for their legal defense, PBA attorney Thomas Burton told Investigative Post in March. Buffalo’s SWAT team members also considered resigning from their special assignment posts, but ultimately decided not to, police sources told Investigative Post. In lieu of using its own ERT unit, Buffalo will work with outside police agencies, said Captain Jeff Rinaldo, spokesman for the police department. “We have many outside agency partners like we have all week,” Rinaldo said. The State Police also have troopers trained in emergency response. “The New York State Police is aware that Buffalo Police Emergency Response Team has resigned. The New York State Police will be adding additional troopers in the region,” said Jim O’Callaghan, a spokesman. The resignations come in the face of what are expected to be stepped-up protests tonight and over the weekend. Demonstrators have been staging anti-racism rallies in Buffalo since Saturday, much of it directed at what protesters consider discriminatory policing practices. The Emergency Response Team was established after protests elsewhere in the wake of the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. Its first operation was policing outside KeyBank Center when then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump staged a rally that attracted some 11,400 people to the downtown arena in April 2016.

Description: Byron Brown, the mayor of Buffalo, N.Y., said Friday the 75-year-old man who was shoved to the ground by two cops the previous day was an “agitator” who had been asked to leave the area “numerous” times. The officers have been suspended without pay and an internal affairs investigation launched after the incident was caught on video and showed the man, Matin Gugino, bleeding on the sidewalk. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the video made him “sick to my stomach”. The officers are expected to be charged with assault Saturday morning, according to WKBW Buffalo. Gugino was caught on camera being shoved to the ground by officers in tactical gear shortly after a curfew went into effect near Niagara Square. In the video, Gugino can be seen approaching a large group of officers. Someone is heard shouting, "Push him back!" One officer raises his baton over the man while another pushes him in the chest. He stumbled backwards and falls on the pavement. A pool of blood can be seen slowly forming around his head.

Although Brown was swift to suspend the officers, the action prompted a backlash from the police’s Emergency Response Team, with 57 officers resigning in support of their colleagues. “What we were informed of is that that individual was an agitator. He was trying to spark up the crowd of people. Those people were there into the darkness. Our concern is when it gets dark, there is a potential for violence,” Brown said. “There has been vandalism, there have been fires set, there have been stores broken into and looted. According to what was reported to me, that individual was a key major instigator of people engaging in those activities,” the mayor said. Brown said he will not insist that the two cops be fired because they need to get “due process”. When asked about the 57 members who resigned from the team, he said the city had "contingency plans" and assured residents that "Buffalo will be safe this weekend." "I want people out in our community peacefully protesting to know everyone who is peacefully protesting will be protected," he said. Cuomo revealed Friday he had spoken to the victim, a longtime peace activist from Amherst. The governor praised the swift suspension of the officers but pressed for disciplinary action against them. "I think the city should pursue firing," Cuomo said. "And I think the district attorney should look at the situation for possible criminal charges." The Erie County District Attorney’s Office announced earlier in the day that it will be investigating the incident.
