More peace from the “peaceful” protesters. The axe was surreptitiously duct-taped to the sign, which read, “Boomers asked 4 justice, millennials demand justice.” The man was also carrying a small knife in his backpack, police said.
Protester caught with axe taped to sign Saturday arrested in Manhattan
By Larry Celona and Vincent Barone, NY Post, June 7, 2020:
Police sure wanted to “axe” him about his sign.
A protester was arrested in Manhattan Saturday for marching with an axe taped to his sign calling for justice in the police killing of George Floyd.
The axe served as a handle and was duct-taped to the sign, which read, “Boomers asked 4 justice, millennials demand justice.” The man was also carrying a small knife in his backpack, police said.
“We respect the right to peacefully protest, but remain vigilant for these type of threats,” the NYPD tweeted.
The man, whose identity has not yet been released, was arrested by 10th Precinct Anti-Crime officers assigned to monitor protests at East 17th and University Place, law enforcement sources told The Post.
He faces at least two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
Massive crowds gathered in New York to peacefully protest Floyd’s killing Saturday for the second straight weekend. Thousands of demonstrators flooded the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn and dispersed in peace shortly before midnight.
