Leaked Audio Appears To Show NYPD Telling Officers To 'Shoot Those Motherf*ckers'

Leaked audio from an NYPD scanner appears to show officers being ordered to shoot protesters and run them over.

As an officer describes the scene over the radio, they are ordered to "Shoot those motherf*ckers" and to "Run them over," -- before a voice quickly chimes in and tell them not to put that over the radio.

There were some questions raised as to whether or not the audio was real -- but here's what TMZ says:

"TMZ independently found the radio transmissions on a website that records police scanners — so the audio is legit. However, law enforcement sources tell us … during this latest wave of civil unrest, police radios have gone missing, and there is a possibility the transmissions on the scanner did not originate from police."

There have been many complaints about the brutality the NYPD has been using against protestors -- now it seems the violence is the result of cops following direct orders -- but are they coming from the top?
