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.
Meanwhile, members of the City Council — who protested the grand-jury decision by staging “die-ins” — jumped on the sympathy bandwagon and held a pro-cop news conference inside City Hall.
