NYPD cops heard on police scanner threatening to SHOOT and RUN OVER peaceful demonstrators

The New York Police Department is reviewing two incidents captured on police scanners across the city that appear to have officers sanctioning violence against demonstrators. 

On Monday evening, as thousands took to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd and Black Lives Matter, New York City implemented a curfew of 11pm. 

But just a few hours prior to the curfew's enforcement, police were believed to have been heard on two occasions threatening protesters.
