All I said to the cop was...I really like to blow you! And he hit me! Big homopho!
CHICAGO SUN-TIMES: Chicago Police in riot gear battled with angry “Black Bloc” protesters at Michigan and Cermak, with officers raining down baton blows, pushing taunting protesters back and leaving some bloody.
A sea of blue-helmeted police officers began violently battling with the protesters just before 5 p.m. The fights stopped and started and stopped for the past hour. A strong flare-up of violence erupted around 5:30 p.m. — just as lightning began flashing to the east as a stormfront moved in.
After an hour of pushing, yelling and aggressive crowd control tactics, police pushed the block of protesters back about 50 yards. Although most of the pushing and shoving has subsided by 6 p.m., a protester could be seen being dragged away by police.
While there was still a hardcore group of protesters refusing to leave and confronting police, other protesters made an effort to get the injured out of the street and urged calm.
Several squadrols were being moved in through the crowd.
The taunting protesters were throwing sticks, bottles and garbage cans at the officers at the intersection— where a mostly peaceful march erupted into violence.
