Portland 'Justice for Trayvon' Rally: 'Every F-ing Cop Is a F-ing Target'
At a "Justice for Trayvon" rally in Portland, Oregon Saturday evening, several speakers reacted to the acquittal of George Zimmerman by calling for violence, including the specific targeting of police.
According to video of the event provided by the "Laughing at Liberals" channel on YouTube, one demonstrator declared: "In my mind, every f***ing cop is a f***ing target."
He explained that he personally, as "a person of color in this racist system," had a long-standing dislike of the police, dating back to a police raid on his family's home during his childhood. He also singled out Portland police chief Capt. Mark Kruger.
The crowd, holding "Justice for Trayvon" signs, applauded his speech.
Elsewhere, marchers declared: "George Zimmerman can go to hell," and chanted "No justice, no peace, no racist police." One hoodie-wearing speaker called on demonstrators to "make demands of the system and tear it to the ground."
Another, more level-headed speaker implored demonstrators not to use hatred or violence. "Fighting hate with hatred don't work," he said, explaining that violence would hurt the poor the most.
