On one of the videos that appeared on Twitter, a man without both legs groans in pain, lying on the ground without both prostheses, “According to www.usa.one. Witnesses of the incident on social networks claim that after the police began to spray pepper spray in the crowd, the prosthesis was taken away from the invalid. The man had to crawl to get medical help. Local news and amateur videographers videotaped the initial confrontation between Columbus Police Department officers and protesters. The officers took a position similar to the phalanx and used their bikes to push the demonstrators back.

On Monday night, the Colombian police department commented on the incident, saying that a protester with prostheses threw large plywood signs at the officials – and the officers at the scene did not know that the man had prosthetic legs. It can be seen that several policemen are holding pepper sprays in both hands, despite the fact that last week the city authorities announced that tear gas and pepper spray would not be allowed to disperse non-aggressive demonstrators.
