Protestors crash memorial for slain cops
A nauseating, vulgar display in New York as anti-police protestors showed up at the makeshift memorial in Brooklyn that sprung up at the site of the murder of two policemen and began to heckle the officers who had come to pay their respects.
Sara Ganim said that while most of the people gathering at the memorial were being respectful, others were chanting anti-police phrases and causing a disruption.
“I do, just in full disclosure, want to say that in the last couple of minutes, for the first time today, we’ve seen protesters come out here and start yelling at groups of police who are mourning their slain police officers,” she said to her in-studio colleague, Breitbart News reported.
“It’s just a few of them, Suzanne, and like I said, just in the last five minutes, and they’re quite frankly yelling at a group of police officers who are standing here silently, just looking at the memorial of candles and flowers and posters, and they’re yelling similar rhetoric that we’ve been hearing over the last couple of weeks related to the shooting of — the chokehold death of Eric Garner and the shooting of Michael Brown in Missouri.”
On Saturday, the day Officers Liu and Ramos were killed, gathering onlookers at the crime scene reportedly cheered and chanted “[expletive] the police.”
“A lot of people were clapping and laughing,” Brooklyn resident Carlos, who would not give his last name, told The Daily Beast.
“Some were saying, ‘They deserved it,’ and another was shouting at the cops, ‘Serves them right because you mistreat people!’” Carlos said.
Meanwhile, Al Sharpton thumbed his nose at Mayor de Blasio's plea to halt protests until after the slain officers were buried. Right on cue, protestors flooded the streets and marched behind a banner reading "Stop Racist Police Terror":
More than 1,000 anti-cop protesters defied Mayor de Blasio and flooded Manhattan Tuesday evening, marching through the Fifth Avenue shopping district before heading uptown.
“The mayor says stop that, we say f–k that!” the mob chanted at one point.
Other slogans were of the sort that Hizzoner has denounced as “hateful” and “inappropriate” in the wake of Saturday’s assassinations of two city cops.
“NYPD, KKK, how many kids did you kill today?” the protesters shouted.
The demonstrators, some carrying a banner that read “Stop Racist Police Terror,” started marching south from 59th Street on the sidewalks, but later blocked traffic on Fifth and Madison Avenues.
They then turned around and started marching toward Harlem to demonstrate in front of a police station house.
“We’re protesting tonight because the mayor specifically said not to,” said marcher Tarik Grand, 25, of Brooklyn.
Sharpton continues to insist the protestors are not anti-police - sort of like the KKK says they're not anti-black, they're pro-white. The lines are now clearly being drawn and anyone who associates themselves with the protestors is either ignorant of what's going on or supporting the anti-police rhetoric of the haters.
