A Black Lives Matter protestor told a cheering crowd in Portland that she wanted “filthy disgusting animal” cops to “fry like bacon” — as she declared a “war” where militants should “shoot back” in a disturbing speech captured on video.
“This is a war, guys … We’re getting ready to get armored up around here,” declared Letha Winston, whose son, Patrick Kimmons, was shot dead by cops in 2018 as he charged toward them seconds after he shot two men.
“I will continue with my mission by any means necessary,” she added — repeating “by any means necessary” several times as she spoke for more than an hour Sunday in front of the Oregon city’s Justice Center.
“I know you got a gun, but so do I … Go ahead and shoot me — I’m shooting back,” she told the cheering crowd, addressing them as “comrades.”
“We’re here to take our streets back,” she said of the Black Lives Matter movement.
In other clips taken by a reporter for The Oregonian, she calls cops who pull over black drivers “liars” if they claim it is for anything but the color of their skin, adding that any such officer is a “filthy, disgusting animal” who should “got to hell.”
Of officers involved in police shootings, she said, “They need to hang you high. … they need to send you to the electric chair and let you fry like a piece of burnt bacon.”
She also admits that she wishes the Minnesota cops charged with killing George Floyd in May — the death that sparked 83 nights of protest in Portland — died at birth.
“Your mother’s umbilical cord should have wrapped around your neck and choked you just the way you choked George Floyd, you filthy animal,” she told the crowd to cheers, the clips show.
“It should have wrapped around your neck so many times to where you yelled, ‘I can not breathe!’” she said, referring to Floyd’s refrain as a cop pinned him with a knee on his neck for almost nine minutes.
Winston’s 27-year-old son had opened fire five times, injuring two men, before he was shot dead as he ran toward two officers who say he had his gun drawn, according to The Oregonian. Both officers were cleared of any wrongdoing by a grand jury.
