Videos and photos are flooding the internet via social media showing the graphic scenes as the protests in Istanbul continue between citizens and police.

Tear gas and water cannons are being used to uproot the demonstrations and one man decided to step in to keep his friends from being blasted with water while they peacefully sat on the sidewalk. Eventually the vehicle turns it water cannon on the man, shooting him directly in the face from point black range, lifting him off his feet and violently slamming him to the ground.
