A Detroit police SUV plowed through a group of protesters in a terrifying caught-on-camera showdown — sending several flying off the hood as it accelerated through them.
The officer’s vehicle was surrounded Sunday night by protesters who claim it blocked a peaceful march against police brutality, according to witnesses.
The article goes on to state the following:
Chanting “No justice, no peace,” some of the protesters appear to climb on the front of the marked cop car — as it suddenly lurches forward, the video shows.
Activist Ethan Ketner posted the video on Twitter and Facebook, writing, “Detroit Police Department drove into 10-12 protesters including myself. Multiple people are going to the hospital.”
In the video, a swarm of protesters are seen surrounding the police vehicle, with some getting up on the hood. The car lurches forward, then stops, multiple times, as some of the protesters still refuse to get off the hood each time it stops, while others tumble to the pavement.
The report says Detroit police later said the unidentified officer drove forward to escape after the rear window of his car was busted out.

In a Facebook post, Ketner wrote:
Detroit Police Department just ran straight through a bunch of our protesters. Myself and 10-12 others were struck by this reckless driver who somehow has a badge. Someone was trapped on the hood and eventually tossed as the officer swerved to throw him off.
These officers drove into our protest after we walked past their vehicles. They did not need to drive past us for emergency purposes because they had other officers on the other side ready. This was a clear act of aggression.
Multiple people injured because of this officers actions are headed to hospitals.
Another protester, Brendan Scorpio, tweeted, “I got hit by a damn cop car today for walking.”
