Anti-racism protesters and counter pro-police demonstrators faced off during rallies in Boston on June 17.
This video, posted to Twitter, captures a confrontation between a sign-holding protester and a man wearing a T-shirt bearing a US flag logo.
“Defund them? Give me that sign,” the man can be heard saying before throwing a sign on the ground. “What are you going to do about it … f***ing coward,” the man continues as the protester goes to retrieve the sign.
The Boston Herald reported that simultaneous “stand for the blue” and “black lives matters” rallies took place at the Holy Name rotary in the West Roxbury neighborhood on the Wednesday. The two reportedly groups remained separated by barricades and police for the majority of the protests. Credit: Anonymous via Storyful
