Protesters were expected to take to the streets again Sunday after demonstrations in three California cities following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida.
In Oakland, protesters broke windows at the Oakland Tribune and started small fires in the streets. Local media reports said some Oakland marchers vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block the protesters’ path.
Footage from a television helicopter showed people spray painting anti-police graffiti. Protesters also burned an American and a California state flag and spray painted Alameda County’s Davidson courthouse.
Protesters were also seen tagging buildings and windows with the letters “FTP” or the phrase “Kill Cops.”
