As far as the old man being shoved and hitting his head, that was not a case of police brutality, he brought it on himself and it was purely accidental that he was hurt. He turns out to be a professional agitator. If you saw the whole clip and particularly in slow motion, what happened is clear. The police were advancing on protestors. He stepped in front of them, using his phone to poke at the officer's chest and then his waist and he was shoved away. The officer kept moving as he was trained to do, but right behind him, other officers did stop to call for an ambulance.
