According to the Twitter account US Protests: News & Updates, protesters in New York have been stealing radios from the NYPD for three straight nights. Last night (June 5), ‘Breaking the Law’ could be heard playing across an NYPD radio frequency.

It comes a few days after Anonymous hacked into the Chicago Police Department’s radios and played NWA‘s ‘Fuck Tha Police’ down the line.

The move came after the group announced their return to social media last week (May 30) in line with global protests over Floyd’s death.

Announcing their intention to target the police departments of Minneapolis and Chicago, Anonymous tweeted: “We stand in solidarity with the protesters and revolutionaries fighting the US oligarchy, fighting the injustice of a massively corrupt racist system that has continued on for generations. #BlackLivesMatter.”
