    Buffalo, NY (WBEN) - Buffalo Police Benevolent Association President John Evans says all 57 members of the Buffalo Police Emergency Reponse Team have resigned from that team in support of two suspended Buffalo Police officers.

    The officers were suspended after being caught on video pushing 75-year-old Martin Gugino to the ground in front of Buffalo City Hall as a protest was being dispersed Thursday night.

    Evans tells WBEN the officers resigned from the team as a show of support for the suspended officers and "disgust for the administration that is not backing them."

    Despite resigning from the Emergency Response Team, Evans says those officers remain in regular officer roles with the Buffalo Police Department.
