A video released by the Tallahassee Police Department clearly shows that five people pushed a man to the ground and then attacked him at a protest at the Capitol this past Saturday. The man extricated himself from the attack by brandishing a gun.
The video does not show the beginning of the altercation.
However, the video shows that after the man was pushed to the ground, four individuals attacked him as he lay on the ground. Also, a man dressed in an all black outfit delivered a kick to the chest of the defenseless individual.
