'Traitor to Your F***ing People': New York Protester Calls Officer 'Black Judas'

A protester was filmed hurling insults at a black police officer during the Occupy City Hall demonstration in Manhattan, New York, on June 30.

In this footage captured by journalist Julio Rosas and compiled by Storyful, the protester is seen criticizing officers lined up outside the Manhattan Municipal Building.

“Half of you don’t even have a college education to be out here making demands about the people when you can’t even read a f***ing history book,” the protester says, before singling out the black officer.

“You should f***king know better. Traitor! Traitor to your f***ing people! You’re like the f***ing black Judas selling Christ for f***ing 33 cents.” The protester was also filmed performing a dance in front of the officers.
