Trayvon Martin supporters staged a second night of protest against the George Zimmerman verdict in Oakland and Los Angeles – blocking freeways, hurling rocks at police, smashing windows, attacking reporters and burning American flags as cops responded with “less than lethal” rounds.

Most of the rallies in major cities across the country were boisterous but largely peaceful. However, trouble flared for a second night running in Oakland where “crowds turned violent,” according to ABC 7.

Bay Area News Group reporter Natalie Neysa Alund and her cameraman were attacked as protesters “had complete control of 14th and Broadway near Oakland City Hall, preventing any cars from getting through.”

When the road was opened, demonstrators descended on frightened drivers who were forced to turn around and leave the area as police departed.

“Oakland police officers that had been near the corner retreated, leaving the helpless drivers without police protection. It’s unclear who gave that command,” states the report.

Protesters later burned an American flag after attempting to gain access to a BART station and a photographer later complained that he had also been attacked.

WIth rioters having already “left destruction in their wake” on Saturday night by smashing windows and attacking businesses in Oakland, the Washington Post reports that protesters also “began breaking windows and spray painting graffiti” last night.

South Los Angeles witnessed similar scenes, with demonstrators throwing rocks and D-cell batteries at police near the corner of Washington Boulevard and 10th Avenue. Cops responded by firing beanbag rounds.

After protesters began swarming the 10 Freeway in the Mid-City area and blocking traffic, the LAPD called a citywide tactical alert. Images show protesters blocking vehicles.

In Hollywood, riot police confronted protesters who gathered at Sunset Boulevard for an “unlawful assembly” and several arrests were made.

Meanwhile in Atlanta, a commercial building was spray-painted with the words “riot 4 Trayvon,” before being covered up by a church owner.
