As Twitchy reported, Ottawa Police used horses to disperse crowds of protesters, but a photo of an elderly woman knocked off her mobility scooter has gone viral and inspired Keith Olbermann to root for “more of this, please.”

F around and F out, you weeping bully.

Funny. I thought you had hit rock bottom. I was wrong.

Well, the Ottawa Police know that photo of people on the ground looks bad, and they hear your concern. No horses were injured, though.
We hear your concern for people on the ground after the horses dispersed a crowd. Anyone who fell got up and walked away. We're unaware of any injuries. A bicycle was thrown at the horse further down the line and caused the horse to trip. The horse was uninjured. pic.twitter.com/tgfsl6uxT7

We doubt the woman on the scooter got up and walked away.
If only video existed to prove or disprove this.

Unaware of any injuries??
That's some stellar police work there. 😡😡

They only almost got trampled to death

Please consider not using horses.

Don't use horses. That is insane.

Is it really wise to ride horses into situations like this?
— Enough Already (@ComeOnRalphie) February 19, 2022
The horses shouldn't have been there.

That’s the best excuse you got? We know the truth.

It's on camera. Like, the whole thing.

That's her walker! You know what's sad? We're not safe from our own policeman anymore. pic.twitter.com/mUMlEdYNyJ

That old lady had an assault style mobility walker. We need common sense walker reform.

Old ladies in Canada can turn walkers into bikes and throw them?

EVERYONE saw video evidence of the truth.

We all see what's happening.
The whole world is watching along and it's not a good look at all.

Just because you are “unaware of any injuries” does not mean there were no injuries.
Plus, good luck having anyone believe you, the pictures and videos say it all.

This thread has taught me most Canadians would have loved to have lived in the USSR.

Wow, you all must be so proud of yourself. Give yourself a pat on the back for using force to deal with the peaceful protesters. All you're doing is creating an even deeper divide between law enforcement and the people.
The people won't forget.

I can’t think of a more disingenuous, authoritarian response… annnnd you’re still going with the lie about bicycles.
— Rebecca Downs (@RebeccaRoseGold) February 19, 2022
Hear their concern? Do YOU have no concern of your own? Isn't that literally your job?

David Frum thinks a tweet from the social media team is a “police report.”
Here's the police report on the no-injury incident that is being magnified around the world as anti-vax martyrdom https://t.co/DJxXS6T1Sr

Ottawa Police say they were ‘slow and methodical’ until protesters made them break out the batons for their own safety https://t.co/cEkJTXbt7a
