NYC BLM march descends into violence: 11 arrested, two NYPD cops injured, press member attacked

An anti-police march attended by Black Lives Matter members in New York City descended into violence on Friday night.

Approximately 100 protesters attended the “F*** 12” march in Midtown Manhattan. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, “F*** 12” and “F12” are anti-police terms that mean “f*** the police,” a reference to the police TV shows “Adam-12” or “Barney Miller,” which was set at the New York City Police Department’s 12th Precinct.

Demonstrators with Black Lives Matter, which was nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize three weeks ago, burned an American flag and a pro-law enforcement thin blue line flag near the NYPD kiosk in Times Square in a supposed protest against police brutality.

Demonstrators stopped traffic by putting barricades in the middle of the street.

During the F12 march at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and 54th Street, someone motioned towards a man and yelled, “He’s a cop!” Approximately a dozen protesters surrounded the man, who is actually a New York Daily News photographer. The New York Post reported that the crowd began “shoving him and beating him with their fists and other objects.” The victim, identified as Sam Costanza, suffered a broken nose, according to the New York Daily News.

Video taken by Oliya Scootercaster of Freedom News TV shows NYPD officers clashing with protesters in the streets of Manhattan.

In Portland on Friday night, black bloc members harassed police officers and bashed storefronts. Footage taken by photojournalist Brendan Gutenschwager shows the windows of an urgent care center smashed.

Portland Police officers were pelted with snowballs as the crowd chanted: “Quit your job!” Agitators dressed in all-black also threw snowballs at a police SUV as it drove by.

Last weekend, BLM and Antifa demonstrators marched in the streets of Washington, D.C., where protesters tangled with police officers. As the crowd marched down the streets, they chanted threats to “burn down” the nation’s capital.
