A police officer in Tacoma, WA, is facing heat after driving through a crowd that was mobbing his SUV while responding to calls of illegal street racing with obligatory doughnut burnouts in intersections. The incident was captured on multiple cell phone cameras. You can see the SUV in the street with 20-30 people surrounding it. At one point the officer evidently becomes concerned with his own safety and hits the gas, plowing through about a dozen or so people to escape. One person is all the way under the car and you can clearly see the back tires run over him:

Note the one guy saying “hit those people.”
One streamer is exclaiming that people were getting into the cop car:
Before the world and Twitter outrages on Tacoma Police. Here’s another video from it.
At the 13 second mark, you can clearly hear somebody repeatedly saying “they’re in the cop car, they’re in the cop car”
